Indeed, the international break is a good time to take stock of how a season is going and United's position is considerably worse during this break than the last.
Overall, of course, the odds favour neither promotion nor relegation, with United heavily backed simply to stay in the division.
One interesting market, though, relates to former Leeds and new Rotherham United boss Neil Redfearn...
Redfearn has inherited a Rotherham side from Steve Evans 21st in the Championship. And yet the Millers are only three points behind Leeds.
As such, Redfearn's men are currently given an outside 7/2 chance of finishing higher than his old club by Sky Bet.
Right now, then, there isn't too much Leeds-related optimism from the bookies. But these things go in cycles. Should Uwe Rosler's side enjoy a good run of form in the coming weeks, those prices will no doubt fluctuate further.
