Luton Town Form & Team News

 
Luton Town have been one of the most entertaining sides in the Championship so far this season. The Hatters have seen over 2.5 goals in six of their seven opening matches and have scored three goals themselves in four of those seven matches. 

Graeme Jones’s side have recorded back to back wins in league and cup in the last seven days. They won 3-1 away at Barnsley last weekend to record their first Championship win of the season. Jacob Butterfield, James Collins and Harry Cornick grabbed a goal each.

They followed that up with a 3-0 win away at Cardiff in the English League Cup. Jones made several changes to his side but their ability to score was still evident. Jake Jervis and Alan Sheehan were the two goalscorers, with Junior Hoilett also putting into his own net.

They have only failed to score once in their last 21 matches in all competitions and have also seen over 2.5 goals in 19 of their last 20 matches in all competitions as well. The odds of seeing that again are great value with bet365 at 1.90. 

Luton are at 2.05 to win the match with bet365. Given the fact that they have won back to back fixtures by a comfortable margin and that their opponents are on terrible form, this is excellent value and is my tip for the game.

Huddersfield Town Form & Team News

 
Huddersfield Town are in free fall at the moment. The team are being managed by caretaker manager Mark Hudson following the dismissal of Jan Siewert two weeks ago and are joint bottom of the Championship. 

The Terriers have lost their last four Championship fixtures, and have lost five of their opening six fixtures in all competitions. They are without a win in 17 competitive fixtures, with their last victory coming all the way back in February when they defeated Wolves in the Premier League. 

Karlan Grant has been the Terrier’s shining light this season and has bagged three goals so far this campaign. He will lead the line once again at Kenilworth Road. Frazer Campbell is yet to make a start for the club but could feature in Mark Hudson’s plans if he decides to shake things up for the club. 

Huddersfield are priced at 3.60 to pick up the victory on Saturday afternoon but nothing about their recent form suggests that this will happen. 

Luton Town vs Huddersfield Town Match Analysis - Luton to win comfortably

 
Things have just gone from bad to worse from Huddersfield since relegation from the Premier League. Luton, in stark contrast, have been a competitive side since getting promoted from League One and have put on several entertaining encounters. 

The home side lost their first home game in over 18 months when they defeated by West Bromwich Albion last time out at Kenilworth Road and will have a victory in their sights to get them back on track.

Luton Town vs Huddersfield Town Betting Tips- Luton offer excellent value 

 
Given Huddersfield’s terrible run of form, Luton are incredible value at 2.05 to pick up the win in this match with bet365 and I am tipping that to happen. 

Elsewhere, a bet on over 2.5 goals is also worth a bet given Luton’s goalscoring record. That is available at 1.90 with bet365. 

Verdict

Luton have been scoring for fun since arriving in the Championship. They have seen over 2.5 goals in 19 of their last 20 matches. 

Huddersfield are in free fall right now and Luton should be able to see them off comfortably.
