Best bookmaker betting odds:

It’s busy days for these teams as both were in action only a few days ago. There’s no rest for the wicked, or in this case; no rest for Leeds and Luton Town.

Luton Town form and stats

There's been little loot from Luton Town's travels as they have only collected 13 points from 20 away games in the Championship. Luton Town, who have the most conceded goals (72) in Championship, only have 4 wins to counter their 15 defeats and 1 draw.

Luton play their second away game in a row, but can be confident going into this one after the 1-0 victory visiting Swansea City (placed 10th). Ahead of that game was the 1-1 draw at home against Preston North End.

We have done a similar check as we did with the hometeam, looking up recent matches where Luton Town played away with similar odds. This revealed three games. The visitors overcame the odds to win zero times, zero were draws and the home team won as expected three times.

The visitors are returning home after this fixture, hosting Reading in just four days.

Many goals are not expected from the visiting Luton as they have only managed to score 17 times from 20 away games in the league. Luton have conceded 44 goals in these games.

Head 2 Head

This is not the first time this season these parties meet, as the history books show this recent fixture: Luton Town - Leeds 1-2. Numbers for the last eight meetings between these two teams are: five wins for Leeds, two draws and one win for Luton Town. Over 2,5 goals: three times; under 2,5 goals: five games.
