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.
