Burton Albion odds: 61/20 (4.05) – 23.0%

Draw odds: 53/20 (3.65) – 26.0%

Derby County odds: 83/100 (1.83) – 51.0%

Given the head-to-head statistics, is Burton Albion or Draw at 27/20 (2.35) really that much of a risk? Sure, the odds suggest a 42.55% success chance, but the Rams haven’t been up to par lately, so perhaps this is your best chance to hurt the bookies this week. Derby County remain the expected winners ahead of Saturday’s duel, as coach Warne’s boys keep a steady 51.0% win probability. However, we still fancy the home side.

Burton Albion vs Derby County Lineups & Team News

Burton Albion

Despite losing 2-0 to Blackpool at the start of the campaign, Brewers certainly showed they are no pushovers, as multiple attempts to score were made. With Burton Albion hammering nine shots at target at Bloomfield Road, how could you not expect them to do well against inconsistent Rams as well?

Predicted lineup – Blackman (GK), Moon, Hughes, Brayford, Hamer, Harper, Seddon, Gordon, Helm & Stockton

Derby County

Our key Burton Albion vs Derby County predictions rely heavily on the visitors’ poor form. Coach Warne will have to find a solution to the issues at the back sooner rather than later. Despite the home-field advantage at Pride Park Stadium, the Rams still lost 1-2 against Wigan Athletic.

Predicted lineup – Wildsmith (GK), Nelson, Bradley, Cashin, Ward, Smith, Bird, Hourihane, Forsyth, Collins & Mendez-Laing

Player to Watch: Craig Forsyth

Versatile left-back Craig Forsyth certainly deserves to be the player to watch in our Burton Albion vs Derby County prediction. He scored the only goal for the Rams in the Wigan Athletic clash last week and he was a worthy opponent for the visitors’ wingers. Sure, the goal itself amounted to nothing, as the Tics snatched away the points, but we believe Forsyth will keep the fire going a bit longer.
