Leeds 10/11 to beat Preston in Tuesdays League Cup matchup
Competition: EFL Cup
Market: Leeds win
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet 365
Currently enjoying an impressive start to the new Championship campaign, Leeds will look to book their spot in the third round of the EFL Cup when they welcome Preston to Elland Road on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, along with coming past Bolton with a 2-1 win in the last round, Leeds have enjoyed a stellar start to the new domestic campaign. After five games in the Championship, Tuesdays hosts have won five, drawn one and are yet to be beaten. Scoring 14 times and conceding just four in return, Leeds now hold the best-attacking stats in the Championship and the second best defensive record in the division. Scoring five in their last two, while they are expected to make changes, it should still be another successful nights work for the hosts.
As for the visitors, while Preston may have made a push for the playoffs last season, it has been a difficult start to the new campaign for the Whites. Although a 3-1 win over lower league Morecambe may have got them a spot in the second round, Preston have struggled since. After five games in the Championship, the visitors have won just one, drawn one and lost three. Conceding seven and scoring just three in their opening five Championship games, they have now shipped two goals in their last three matches on the bounce.
