      Bristol City vs Brighton Predictions

       

      Bristol City have picked up some fantastic results of late and come in on the back of 3 straight wins. 2 of them came away from home against rival sides at the bottom including MK Dons who they beat 2-0 on Saturday. Those results have lifted them 8 points clear of safety and if they can win again here, they might be able to start seriously thinking about building for another season in the Championship next term.

      Brighton were also on a bit of a roll and had taken 13 points from 5 matches prior to their trip to Cardiff on Saturday. They were brought firmly back down to Earth with a bump though as the Bluebirds inflicted on them a crushing 4-1 defeat although they remain in touch with the top two, although have played more games than leaders Hull and 3rd placed Middlesbrough.

      Reason for Betting Tips

      Confidence is sky high at Ashton Gate right now for the first time all season and Brighton won’t be looking forward to their 2nd trip to this part of the world in 4 days. Their result across the Severn Bridge at Cardiff was their worst of the season and they have only won 1 of their last 10 league away games. Therefore backing Bristol City Draw No Bet at 4/6 looks a solid punt here.
