Ipswich Town hope for some positivity when they host Bristol at the Portman Road in the midweek action. Ipswich are still at the bottom of the table and the threat of being cut off from safety has grown increasingly in recent weeks. Even after the arrival of Paul Lambert, the club remain six points away from safety. Bristol City, meanwhile, have dropped to 14th place in the table after the recent set of results. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Ipswich did not offer much in the match against West Brom as they fell to a 2-1 defeat. This happens to be the ninth defeat of the campaign for Ipswich.
A red card just after the half-time break proved disastrous for Bristol City, who fell to a 2-0 loss against Leeds United, during the weekend. This was the fourth consecutive defeat for Lee Johnson’s men.
Ipswich recently took on Bristol at the Ashton Gate stadium with the home team getting a 1-0 success. Bristol had earlier picked up a 3-1 success at Portman Road back in September. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Bristol.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Prediction and betting tip:”]Bristol City win at 2.37[/bet_tip_now]
Ipswich Town are at a price of 3.30 to win this match. However, Lambert’s men have been one of the poorest teams in the division and results have not improved even after the former Stoke City manager came to the club. Lambert has also not been well received and a drop in attendance figures is expected for forthcoming matches. Bristol fared reasonably well against Leeds before falling to a defeat while playing with 10 men. Johnson’s team are expected to fare much better against Ipswich and Bristol also secured a double over this opponent in the 2017-18 campaign. Our preview would go with a win for Bristol.

Ipswich Town vs Bristol City draw odds: 3.30
Ipswich Town win odds: 3.30
Correct Score odds
There have been no goals from Bristol in three out of the last four games and Johnson’s men have also contributed very little on this front. Ipswich were not an attacking threat against West Brom until Jackson’s 85th minute goal during the weekend. A game between these two teams is expected to be low on goals and our correct score prediction would back a 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The recent matches for Bristol have predominantly produced low scoring games. Even if Johnson’s men have not been great going forward, they have also not been poor at the back. Ipswich may have scored in three consecutive matches but our total goals prediction expects under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Kayden Jackson came on as a substitute and scored Ipswich’s only goal in the 2-1 loss against West Brom during the weekend. The 24-year-old may have started close to 50% of the league matches this season, but he has come up with a confidence booster in the form of the recent goal. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Jackson.
