Today's Betting Tips for Preston vs Huddersfield

Preston host Huddersfield at Deepdale in an all-Championship clash in the FA Cup on Saturday afternoon. Read our top predictions for this weekend’s fixture below.

Huddersfield Double Chance

Huddersfield upset the odds to topple Preston at Deepdale in the Championship on Boxing Day and the Terriers could repeat the trick when they land at the same venue on Saturday in the FA Cup’s third round. North End have lost 100% of their matches on home soil since the domestic campaign kicked back into gear and their nasty habit of coming unstuck in Preston could set Huddersfield up for more success. As a result, we recommend siding with the visitors in the generously-priced double chance market.

Both Teams to Score

Preston’s recent league meeting with Huddersfield gave us plenty to use for Saturday’s markets. Both teams got in on the goalscoring act in the sides’ Championship tussle, which finished 2-1 in Huddersfield’s favour, and the teams mustered a healthy 20 shots between them in what was an open contest at Deepdale. The pattern of the game could be similar on Saturday with the same players on show, and another stake on both teams to score appeals at the prices on offer.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, odds and probability figures ahead of Saturday’s FA Cup scuffle between Preston and Huddersfield.

Preston odds: 47/50 (1.94) – 51.5%

Draw odds: 47/20 (3.35) – 29.9%

Huddersfield odds: 3/1 (4.0) – 25%

Despite losing when they last hosted Huddersfield on Boxing Day, the bookies have priced Preston as favourites to win Saturday’s cup clash. Under 2.5 goals carries a price of 3/5 (1.6) – 62.5% in the markets, however, suggesting chances could be thin on the ground, while a correct score of 1-0 to Preston is the skinniest price on offer at 5/1 (6/0) – 16.7%.
