Bristol City vs Leeds United – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
Bristol City have the opportunity to maintain their playoff position when they face second-placed Leeds United at Ashton Gate on Saturday. Bristol have bagged just one point in the past three games and they hold onto the sixth spot on goal difference. Leeds, however, have performed much better with a couple of victories but they can’t afford to slip up with Sheffield United just two points behind them in the race for automatic promotion.

Betting Tips for the game
Bristol recently ended a two-match losing streak after managing a 1-1 draw against Preston North End. Daniel Johnson gave Preston the advantage before the interval but Famara Diedhiou equalised for a share of the spoils.
Leeds, on the other hand, bagged a third win from four matches after a resounding 4-0 win over promotion-chasing West Bromwich Albion. Patrick Bamford was the pick of the players with a goal in either half.
Elland Road was the destination for the previous meeting in November which ended 2-0 in Leeds’ favour. The last encounter at Ashton Gate saw Leeds win 3-0 in 2017. Our betting tips and predictions favour a draw.

Bristol have recently gone through a three-match run without a win and that run may extend against a Leeds side, who come off a statement win against West Brom. Still, the hosts can be fancied to avoid a defeat, as Leeds have not been particularly impressive when it comes to the away trips of late. Our preview predicts a share of the spoils.

Bristol City win odds: 3.10
Leeds United win odds: 2.30
Correct Score odds
Bristol may be going through a rough patch but they have been consistently on the scoresheet with their previous blank coming back in November against the weekend’s opposition. In comparison, Leeds have been impressive with just two scoreless games in the same period, but that may not be sufficient to produce a win. Leeds have struggled to keep clean sheets on the road this year. Our correct score prediction is to go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The history of the fixture has been in favour of high-scoring games and just one of the previous five meetings have witnessed less than three goals. However, there could be a cagey encounter this weekend, as both sides cannot afford a defeat with their promotion ambitions at stake. Our total goals prediction favours less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Patrick Bamford has taken the scoring mantle for Leeds in the injury absence of Kemar Roofe. The ex-Chelsea graduate has netted three times in the past three matches and this has included the opening strike against Bolton. Our first goalscorer prediction fancies Bamford to find the breakthrough for Leeds.
