IT'S another week and another case of Leeds United being long odds-on to take another three points in Saturday's Championship hosting of Huddersfield Town.

Leeds are not quite as short as they were for their most recent home outing against Reading but United are still only marginally better than 1-3 at 39-100 with Marathon Bet to record a fifth-straight win.

The draw is on offer at 4-1 with Danny Cowley's Terriers as big as 19-2 to head back to Huddersfield with a victory.

And even the Championship's fourth top-scorer Karlan Grant is as big as 10-1 to score first and 18-5 to net any time.

Grant is still seen as Town's main goal threat with Steve Mounie the next Huddersfield man in the betting at 12-1 to net first and 22-5 as anytime scorer.

Fraizer Campbell is 14s to net first and 5-1 any time with Emile Smith Rowe, Collin Quaner and Rekeil Pyke all 16s to bag first and 11-2 any time.

It is, though, the usual story in the first goalscorer market with Patrick Bamford again favourite at 15-4 and only 21-20 to net anytime despite having gone seven games without a goal.

Tyler Roberts, though, has been the main mover in the market with Roberts 5-1 to net first and 17-10 anytime putting him ahead of Pablo Hernandez who is 6s to net first and 12-5 any time.

Left winger Jack Harrison, so unlucky not to net in last weekend's romp at Hull City, could be a decent price at 17-2 to net first and 11-4 any time.

Right winger Helder Costa is slightly shorter to score first at 6-1 and 12-5 as an anytime scorer.

But whoever finds the net, business as usual is expected at Elland Road with a 2-0 Whites win rated the most likely score outcome at just 6-1.

Even a 1-0 success for the Terriers is 25s.
