Exeter vs Derby County: Top free betting tips

Exeter will face Derby County on Tuesday night in League One with the home side looking to make it three wins in a row. The away side, meanwhile, are looking to close the gap on Portsmouth at the top of the table and also pull away from the teams below them in the race for automatic promotion. Our Exeter vs Derby County prediction is for an away due to Derby's impressive form on the road and Exeter's iffy record at home.

Match result prediction: Derby County to Win

Derby County have looked good over the past few weeks with the Rams recording two wins and a draw over their last three matches while their away form has been excellent all season. Paul Warne's men have picked up 32 points on the road this season, a number bettered only by Portsmouth. Exeter, meanwhile, haven't been great at all at St James' Park – they have the fifth-worst record at home in League One so Derby will fancy their chances on Tuesday night.

Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 goals

Neither of these sides have exactly been scoring for fun lately which potentially sets us up for a low-scoring match. Five out of Derby County's last seven matches have seen fewer than three goals scored while the same can be said for four of Exeter's last six. No team in League One has scored fewer goals at home than Exeter and we can't see that changing against a solid Derby County defence.

​​​​Correct score prediction: Exeter 0-1 Derby County

We're anticipating a professional away performance from Derby on Tuesday night. They will be hard to break down while their attacking players are more than capable of playing at speed on the counterattack. Exter's lack of goals at home is a concern so we're going for Exeter 0-1 Debry County.
