Burton Albion FC vs Bristol City – Betting Tips for the game

Burton suffered their second straight defeat in the division as they lost 2-0 to Brentford. Goals from Ollie Watkins and Kyle McFadzean (own goal) handed a crucial victory for the visitors, who are still in the promotion race.

Bristol, meanwhile, succumbed to their second defeat in three league matches. Lee Johnson’s side succumbed to a 2-1 loss at Preston North End with Sean Maguire bagging the all-important winner in the 69th minute.

The previous meeting between the sides was at Ashton Gate earlier this season, and it finished in a goalless draw. The last outing at the Pirelli Stadium in 2016 saw Bristol come up triumphs by a 2-1 score. Our betting tips and predictions expect a Bristol win.

Prediction and betting tip: Bristol City win at 1.83 with Betway Kenya

Burton Albion FC vs Bristol City – Match odds

Burton are priced at 4.50 for a win, but we are not anticipating them to secure three points despite possessing the home advantage. Burton have been in a horrendous run at home since mid-September. During this period, Nigel Clough’s men have acquired just two points in 14 matches. We are fancying Bristol to prevail for their first away win of 2018, as they are more of a threat in the attack front. Our preview is to go for a Bristol win, which can be backed at 1.83 with Betway.

Burton Albion FC vs Bristol City – Correct Score odds

Burton have found goals hard to come by of late, and they have drawn blank in four of their last five Championship games. Bristol have been a better side with respect to the attacking department and they have failed to score in just one of their previous five matches. Both sides have picked up just two league wins in 2018, but Bristol have the resources to beat Burton, who possess the second-worst offensive and defensive record in the division. Our correct score prediction is to go for a Bristol 2-0 win at 8.00 with Betway.

Burton Albion FC vs Bristol City – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

Despite lying in the bottom three, Burton have tried to contain their opponents from scoring, and this has resulted in two or less goals in the last three matches at the Pirelli Stadium. Bristol’s last two matches against Burton have resulted in a similar outcome. Our total goals prediction is to go with under 2.5 goals at 1.70 with Betway.

Goal odds and predictions: Under 2.5 goals at 1.70 with Betway Kenya

The 25-year-old has amassed five goals in his previous five appearances – including a hat-trick and the opening goal against Sheffield Wednesday. Reid is also Bristol’s designated penalty-taker. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Bobby Reid at 6.00 with Betway.
