BETTING NEWS FOR CITY VS PRESTON
CONSIDERING Bristol City’s recent record against tomorrow’s opponents Preston, they’re priced at a skinny-looking 6/5 (Betfred) to secure three points. Admittedly, they enjoy home advantage, but the Robins have lost seven and drawn three of their last ten league contests against the Lilywhites, a record which should, at the least, have punters running the rule over Marathonbet’s 5/2 odds posted about the draw.
Preston, a 13/5 shot with 888sport, have yet to record an away league victory this term, while only Wigan have conceded more away goals in the Championship, a miserable run of form which boosts the appeal of 188bet’s 11/4 odds against City winning without conceding. Nevertheless, punters keen to hedge their bets may fancy a nibble at Skybet’s 4/5 price about both sides finding the back of the net.
Famara Diedhiou is Betway’s 9/5 favourite to score at any time, decent odds considering he’s bagged 16 goals in 35 appearances for City, and Coral’s 23/20 for the game’s last goal to arrive after the 76th minute could pay dividends. Elsewhere, City are 9/1 (Unibet) to win 2-0 and 15/2 with Ladbrokes to secure a 2-1 victory. To cover the most probable correct score bases, there could be merit in backing both results.
