League One betting, Huddersfield - Preston

Well, being lucky sometimes or not Hudders are now undefeated in 38 (if I counted well) league games. Despite the big amount of draws in those 38, they’re second and have scored at least twice in every of last six matches at Galpharm.

After a slow start, Preston made a run of seven straight wins in the league. Then made two, well at least for me, surprising defeats on the road vs. Leyton (unlucky) and Walsall (deserved). Few days ago, in the midweek game, they got trashed against another promotion candidate - Sheff Utd (2-4). Beside some fatigue (Hudders had a free midweek), North End will be without maybe two best players Neil Mellor (Phil Brown has refused to confirm it) and Ian Hume. Additionally, midfielders Coutts and Nicholson, and defender Brian McLean all picked up knocks against the Blades and will have late fitness test.

Personally, I avoid taking Hudders when they’re short priced, they’ve wasted too much points against bottom sides just because relaxed attitude and underestimation. This is different, Preston will demand their full attention and best effort. For me, home win is clear as a tear.
