Lee Johnson’s men have given themselves a great opportunity to finish in the play-off places. The availability of several games around rival teams in the remaining few matches give Bristol an even greater chance of finishing in the play-offs. Wigan, meanwhile, only think about avoiding relegation with the team very close to the bottom three. The difference of four points to the bottom three will not lend a lot of peace to the Wigan supporters, who also are aware about the club’s dismal away form – one win in 19. Our preview would pick a victory for Bristol.

Bristol City vs Wigan draw odds: 1.90
Wigan win odds: 4.50
Correct Score odds
Bristol have been able to get back-to-back wins with four goals scored. It is in line with the mediocre scoring record experienced by Bristol throughout the campaign. Even at home, Bristol have averaged only around a goal per game. Wigan are not great when it comes to scoring goals and they have had a habit of taking advantage of opposition’s poor form in order to get goals. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Bristol.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There is a greater likelihood of witnessing a clean sheet for Bristol, who displayed a lot of grit in the recent match against Middlesbrough. Bristol have three home games in the next four matches and games at the Aston Gate Stadium have not been overflowing with goals. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Famara Diedhiou continues to display good form for Bristol even if he has not been scoring goals. The 26-year-old has not been able to find the back of the net in four successive matches, but our first goalscorer prediction would back the club’s top scorer – who has 11 league goals and two assists – to come up with the opening goal.
