Tip Reasoning

  • Both teams have scored in the last six Bristol City home league games.
  • Both teams have scored in four of the last six away Coventry City matches in the Championship.
  • Both teams have scored in seven of the last eight league meetings between Bristol City and Coventry.

Robins’ home run owes something to fortune

Bristol City have the home form to scare anyone in the division right now, but Coventry might be streetwise enough to deny the hosts a fifth Ashton Gate win on the bounce this week. Nigel Pearson’s men extended their run with a 2-1 victory over in-form Middlesbrough, although they were on the back foot for most of Saturday’s game.

The Robins have been efficient finishers at home with three of their last four visiting opponents mustering a higher xG figure than them and there being little between the numbers in the other game. This suggests a degree of good fortune too and dissuades us from taking the 8/5 quote about them here even if they are slight underdogs.

Coventry have been beaten in two of their three most recent away league games, but judged over a longer period, they have lost only three of their last ten road games. The Sky Blues have drawn four of those games and found the back of their opponents’ net in seven.

Both teams to score is a safer play than match result options

Backing both teams to score this midweek seems a safer play than supporting either team to win the contest, which could be as tight as they come. The last 11 Bristol City home league games have been decided by one goal or less while Coventry’s 2-0 defeat to Cardiff a week ago was the first time they had lost an away game by more than a goal since September.

Both teams have scored in the last six Bristol City home league games and in four of the last six away Coventry City matches in the Championship. And a check on the history of this fixture shows that both teams have scored in seven of the last eight league meetings between the two clubs.

Aside from the main bet, a 1-1 correct score forecast could also prove profitable as the hosts’ last clean sheet was 13 games ago while Coventry have only scored more than once on their travels on four occasions this season – from 15 attempts.
