Coral’s bet of the day

  • Smith has scored in both Championship matches this term
  • Leeds have lost both fixtures, Fulham have taken maximum points
  • Smith will be determined to down his former club

Matt Smith is 19/10 to score anytime v Leeds

Leeds United and Fulham lock horns on Tuesday night in the Championship at Elland Road, as the duo aim to gain all three points early in the season.

It is from this match that Coral have picked their latest bet of the day, with tasty odds of 19/10 available on Cottagers centre forward Matt Smith scoring anytime.

Read on to find out why this price is too good not to take…

English frontman Smith, who is also eligible for Scotland and France through his parents, comes into this clash in fine form this season, having scored in both of Fulham’s matches in the Championship so far.

Smith in fine form

Fulham v Newcastle United - Sky Bet Championship - Craven Cottage

The first was the sole goal in a shock win over Rafael Benitez’s star-studded Newcastle United as he towered above defenders to head home, and the second came last Saturday in a 2-1 victory over Preston North End.

In contrast, Leeds have endured a terrible start to the league campaign after losing both their fixtures with QPR and then Birmingham City under new boss Garry Monk.

How they perhaps wished they kept Smith, who netted 13 goals in all competitions for them in 2013/14 when he was on their books, before being sold to the west Londoners the following season.

With just one goal scored and five conceded this term, it makes promising reading for the hosts for sure, and Smith will be determined to show what they’re missing.

So, what are you waiting for punters? Take a punt on this brilliant 19/10 bet for Smith to score anytime, to potentially watch your money grow!
