Derby vs MK Dons Odds, Free Betting Tips & Predictions

These are our predictions and tips for this match:

McGoldrick to Score Anytime

Our first Derby vs MK Dons prediction backs the Rams’ top goalscorer McGoldrick (17 goals) to find the back of the net again. McGoldrick has scored in 40% of Derby’s home matches so far this season. In fact, he has netted 14 of his 17 league goals at home and clearly, this is where he excels. That’s why we back him to score again on home turf.

Over 0.5 First Half Goals

Our second Derby vs MK Dons prediction seems the most logical of them all. We think there will be at least 1 goal scored in the first half. Considering that this was the case in all of Derby’s last 11 home games and in all of MK Dons’ last 14 away matches we really can’t argue with these compelling stats.

Under 2.5 Goals

Our final Derby vs MK Dons prediction is for this to be a tight game and to have fewer than 3 total goals in it. Derby need the points to stay in playoff contention, the Dons need them for survival. With so much at stake, we really think the game will be close-fought and cagey.

All of Derby’s last 4 games were like that and had fewer than 3 goals in them. Also, 7 of MK Dons’ last 8 league games went under 2.5 total goals.

Derby vs MK Dons Lineups, Analysis, and Latest Team News

Derby

Derby stopped a 3-game losing run on Good Friday with a vital 2-0 away victory against Forest Green. Taking the lead very early in this match helped the Rams to preserve some precious energy later on. Derby remain outside the playoffs only on goal difference so for them, every remaining match has the feel of a cup final.

The squad is practically at full strength with only 3 very rarely-used players nursing injuries right now. Due to the crazy schedule rotation seems likely. The likes of Forsyth and Bird were benched on Friday so this suggests they will start again now.

MK Dons

MK Dons have lifted themselves out of the relegation zone only in recent weeks after 3 consecutive 1-0 wins. They missed a good opportunity to open some gap over the drop zone on Friday though. Played for nearly an hour against ten men at home vs Portsmouth and yet got lucky to save a 1-1 draw.

Will have to refresh the lineup as the games are so close to each other. Have options to rotate with only the 3 long-term absentees remaining out of contention. Among them are the regular starters when fit O’Hora (centre-back) and Kaikai (inner midfielder).
