Derby vs Fulham Predictions, Betting Tips and Preview

Derby vs Fulham predictions and betting tips for the Championship play-off match on Friday evening with a goals tip and match prediction included.

The Championship play-offs get underway on Friday night as Fulham make the trip to Pride Park for the first leg. The Cottagers were left frustrated after losing on the final day to Birmingham and it was an atypical error-strewn display. Slavisa Jokanovic will need to ensure his side don’t dwell on that disappointment and regain their focus ahead of this crucial 90 minutes. That run ended ther 23-match unbeaten streak and they will hope to get back on track. Derby striker Matej Vydra has suggested that his side can capitalise on that frustration and the Rams have certainly been in form. Gary Rowett’s side went through a horrendous run of form and but have picked up seven points from a possible nine and are suddenly showing the kind of form which could help them reach the Premier League. Fulham have picked up four points from the two meetings between these sides. See our Derby vs Fulham betting tips and predictions in the article below:


Derby vs Fulham Predictions

Fulham were sloppy on Sunday and Derby will be hoping to take advantage of that. The Rams are play-off regulars but don’t have the best record at this stage of the season. They are clearly playing with confidence again and I think they can take a narrow lead to Craven Cottage. The first of our Derby vs Fulham betting tips is Derby Win which is priced at 19/10 with Betfair.

Play-off first legs can often be tight and cagey affairs but I’m not sure Fulham know how to play that way. They have scored plenty of goals this season and Derby have suddenly found their shooting boots as well. There’s value in backing goals. Over 2.5 Goals is priced at Evens with Betvictor and is the second of our Derby vs Fulham predictions.

Cameron Jerome is a man reborn over the past few weeks and is suddenly looking a threat once again. The former Norwich striker can be hit or miss but he has experience in the Championship play-offs and he can use that to good effect. Cameron Jerome in the anytime goalscorer market is priced at 23/10 with Paddy Power and is the last of our Derby vs Fulham betting tips.
