Leeds vs Coventry prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Leeds to win and over 2.5 goals

  • Leeds have suffered only four losses this season and are the only team in the league to beat Ipswich and Leicester this campaign
  • Coventry have lost seven times already and scored just 27 league goals – this is the fewest amount in the top 14

We have also decided to back Leeds because of how they are sitting in third and comfortably within the playoffs. The Yorkshire side have also let in just 21 goals so far, which is only bettered by Leicester at the top of the Championship.

For more football betting tips on this game, check out the over 2.5 goals alongside our Leeds United vs Coventry City betting tips.

Despite a loss away to Sunderland last time out, Leeds continue to impress after relegation from the Premier League. The Whites have secured 12 wins so far and are only outscored by Norwich City, Ipswich and Leicester. Moreover, Leeds have already managed to beat the league-leading Foxes twice this season and also beaten second-placed Ipswich.

Odds are currently at 8/15 (1.53) for over 2.5 goals once more, which gives an implied probability of 65.2%.
