Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Leeds United have been quite lethargic and dull in recent away matches. The team are up against a Preston outfit who are going through a similar problem. This match is likely to be a low scoring encounter with Leeds once again expected to struggle. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
The form of players like Callum Robinson has dropped since the international break. The attacking midfielder has been able to score only once since coming back from international duty with Ireland, but he remains as one of the potent forwards for Preston with 9 goals and two assists. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Robinson.
