Huddersfield Town AFC - Derby County FC betting tip & odds comparison 02.02.2022

Betting Tip for matchday 30 of the 2021/2022 Championship between Huddersfield Town AFC and Derby County FC. The game will be played at John Smith’s Stadium (Huddersfield, England) on 02.02.2022 at 20:45.

The thrills of championship football returns on Wednesday when Huddersfield Town play host to Derby County at the John Smith Stadium. Heading into this tie on the back of their disappointing 1-1 draw against Stoke, the Terries, 7th on the table, would be in the hunt for an important win which would take them back into the Championship playoff places. For Derby, their recent turnaround must continue if they intend to survive the drop this season.

This is a mouthwatering fixture to anticipate given how crucial a win is for both sides. For this preview, we will be drawing betting tips from 22bet and Betway.

Huddersfield Town

Carlos Corberan’s men are currently on a 10 game unbeaten streak across all competitions. In fact, they haven’t tasted defeat since November’s 2-1 loss to Middlesbrough, winning 5 and drawing 5 in that run.

Despite their impressive run, this fixture presents a tough challenge given that they are level on points with Middlesbrough and West Brom in the playoff places.

Hence, any slip up could dent their hopes of earning a play-off spot having played one game more than sixth-placed Middlesbrough.

Derby County

With just 8 wins on the board this season, Derby have their work cut out in a bid to avoid relegation. However, Wayne Rooney’s side have been on a resurgence picking up four wins in the last 7.

This upturn in form has seen them move closer to safety as they are now just seven points behind Reading just outside the relegation places after the initial 21-point deduction. Last time out, they avoided back to back losses having salvaged a precious point in the 2-2 draw against Birmingham.

With their present form, Rooney will be confident they have huge momentum and will look towards getting more points on the board.

Our Huddersfield vs Derby County Predictions

Although Derby to be on a gradual resurgence, Huddersfield’s current unbeaten streak means Rooney’s men face an uphill task. Also, the Terries have not lost at home since November hence, they will look to protect that run. Considering what is at stake for both teams and how 3 of their last 4 meetings panned out, we are expecting Huddersfield to win or draw with less than four goals scored (Double Chance 1X & Under 3.5 Goals). 22bet has this market priced at 1.64.

With both teams needing to win, this game is expected to be highly conservative at the start. So we expect the second half to be the most scoring half. Betway has this market pegged at 2.08
