Tuesday’s props column is backing Aleksandar Mitrovic to fire Fulham back into the Premier League.
Fulham are rather limping over the line as they again look for an immediate return to the Premier League if they can beat Preston on Tuesday.
Marco Silva’s side have been powering towards promotion until recently, when they’ve lost three of the last five including their last two matches.
Surprising back-to-back defeats to Coventry and Derby have just given Fulham food for thought, and they’ll want to get the job done on Monday with their last four games all coming against teams in the top six.
The Cottagers are 10 points above third-placed Huddersfield with two games in hand though, so a Premier League return still looks assured, and a Preston side with no realistic play-off chances could be the ideal opponent.
North End haven’t scored in their last three away games and with just 16 goals on the road this season only the bottom three have scored fewer goals on their travels than Ryan Lowe’s side.
So we’re happy to back the team with the Championship’s second-best home record to get the job done here as big favourites as the base for a Bet Builder treble on the game.
It’s a good game for the Bet Builder option given Fulham are short-priced favourites and in Aleksandar Mitrovic they have a prolific marksman who’s also a short-priced fancy to score.
38 goals from 39 games is a truly remarkable return, and that’s including going without a goal in the last two games, which means he’s very much due a goal here.
That increases our profit, but with Fulham playing at home and being the top team in terms of winning corners then it’s also worth a dabble on their corner count to bump us up even higher.
Fulham average just over seven corners per game at Craven Cottage and are even money to match that again, and in a game they badly need to win that should be no problem.
