Leeds United vs Preston North End top free betting tips

Our Leeds United vs Preston North End predictions are below. Leeds United have lost two of their previous five matches while Preston has lost three of their previous five. Can Leeds United earn all three points to keep the pressure on the other sides fighting for automatic promotion?

Leeds United have won their previous three matches all by three goals to nil but did lose two matches in a row previous to that, a 1-0 loss to West Brom and a 2-1 loss to Preston in the reverse fixture on Boxing Day. Ryan Lowe's Preston side has been such a hard team to call all season, the Lillywhites started the season in excellent form but have hit multiple bad spells and are currently going through one now, winning just two of their previous seven matches, losing the remaining five.

Leeds are averaging almost 2.5 home goals scored per match this season and just under one goal conceded per home match with Preston averaging almost two goals conceded per match this season.

​​Correct score prediction: 3-1 to Leeds United

For our final Leeds United vs Preston North End prediction, we have, as usual, gone with a correct score prediction. Leeds United should have a fairly comfortable ninety minutes in front of their home fans in this match against Preston. The Lillywhites are a good team but this Leeds side, whose squad on paper is too good for the Championship is a team who are way too good for most sides when playing at Elland Road.

The driving distance between Preston and Leeds is 68 miles. With the usual cold temperatures in the UK at this time of year, we would advise any travelling fans to wrap up warm.

For those Preston fans making the short journey from Lancashire to West Yorkshire, this journey is a fairly straightforward one. Preston fans will start on the M6 for a few short miles before joining the M61 to just outside Manchester where they will then join the M60, again, for a few short miles before joining the M62 which, at its highest peak, is the highest motorway in the United Kingdom, the M62 will take Preston fans pretty much to Leeds.
