Check our free top betting tips that could help you to make your Oxford vs Derby prediction:

Derby to Win

Our first Oxford vs Derby prediction is for the Rams to record a win they need to protect their top 6 position. Derby are undefeated against a team outside the top 7 since early October (W11 D4) and they tend to dominate easily such games. Considering that Oxford’s confidence is at an all-time low after dreadful last 9 rounds brought just 1 point and we really think Derby will fancy their chances.

Over 2.5 Goals

With all of Derby’s last 5 away games having at least 3 total goals scored and 5 of Oxford’s last 6 home matches also going over 2.5 goals we think following this trend will be wise. This is why our second Oxford vs Derby prediction is for the game to have at least 3 total goals.

Over 0.5 First Half Goals

We continue our free betting tips with the Goals Market and we believe there will be at least 1 goal scored in the first half. All of Derby’s last 9 league matches had a goal in the first half. Also, all of Oxford’s last 5 games saw a goal being scored before the interval.

Oxford vs Derby Lineups & News

Oxford

Oxford were edged 0-1 by Lincoln last weekend and their downfall continued. With no improvement in the 3 consecutive defeats since manager for 5 years Robinson was sacked the pressure is starting to build.

Oxford will be missing 6 injured players for this trip. However, the only important absentee will be key inner midfielder Bodin. Winter signings Baldock will also sit out the match as he’s not fit enough to play again after being involved on Tuesday.

Derby

In second consecutive round Derby threw away a halftime lead to drop precious points when losing 1-2 on their visit to high-flyers Plymouth. The Rams are now officially out of the race for direct promotion, but if they want to keep their playoff spot they need wins.

Manager Ward is known for keeping the changes to a minimum. However, in search of fresh legs after 3 consecutive weeks of a Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday schedule, he might refresh the lineup now. All of Sibley, Dobbin and Collins could start, while the most tired of those that started on Tuesday could sit on the bench.

The important playmaker Bird remains the only serious injury issue, but even he could be back soon as he has resumed training.
