Championship Free Play: Swansea City at Derby County

My models suggest a 59% chance for Derby County to win this match and at the current +125 odds, that presents us very good value. Derby finished 6th in the Championship last year, enough to make the playoff for the last Premier League promotion for this season, but fell just short, losing to Aston Villa in the final. They had a strong +15 goal differential with most of their success coming at home where they sported a 13W-7D-3L record and +20 goal differential. They got their season started in a strong way with a 2-1 road win at Huddersfield who were relegated from the Premier League last season.

Play: Derby County (+125)

Swansea also won their opener, 2-1 at home over Hull. Last season saw Swansea finish mid-table at #10 with a +3 goal differential on the year. They struggled on the road however with just a 6W-5D-12L record and a -11 goal differential.

Derby won 2-1 at home over Swansea last year and doubled the shot attempts of Swansea, taking 16 attempts with 4 on goal compared to just 7 attempts with 2 on goal for Swansea while playing them very evenly on the road in a 1-1 draw.

I think we have a solid chance at seeing a Derby home win here as they only need to win 45% of the time to break-even on these odds. Take the value.
