ENGLAND: Championship – Round 13
Fulham vs Luton
Kick-off: October 23, 19:45
Prediction: Home Win
Odds: 1.54@BWIN

Though Fulham remain marooned in mid-table, they are still enjoying a better start in terms of both points earned and goals scored (1.67 scored per match average) than at this stage of their last Championship promotion season.
At home, just one of Fulham’s six league games have seen a goalless first half, though not one of those matches witnessed both teams score before the break (HT: W2, D2, L2). The ‘Cottagers’ seem to come alive after half-time though, having scored nine of their 12-goal haul at home during the second half. Notably, four of those goals arrived between the 46th-60th minute.
Luton Town did their survival chances a world of good with a 3-0 victory over Bristol City last time out. Away from home, three of their last four away league games have also witnessed over 2.5 goals, with two seeing over 1.5 goals before half-time (1.67 first-half goals per match average).
Since a goalless draw back in March, Luton have gone 12 consecutive away games without drawing (W6, L6 – all competitions). However, three of six Championship away fixtures this season were level at the break – Luton went on to lose two.
Players to watch: Since his 2018 debut, Aleksandar Mitrović has scored 31 of Fulham’s 84 league goals up to this point (36.9%).
Luton’s top-scorer James Collins has netted in two of his side’s last three away league games, most recently the opener in a 2-1 victory over Blackburn.
Stat attack: Fulham have won just half of their home league matches this season when installed as the bookmakers favourite (W3, D2, L1).
Ahead of the round, only Brentford (14) have received fewer bookings than Luton (15 – 1.25 per match average).
Luton have equalised only once after falling behind five times in away league games this season.
