Betting Tips for the game
Preston were able to pick up a 3-1 comprehensive success over Millwall during the weekend. This was the eighth consecutive league match without a defeat for Alex Neil and his team, whose last defeat in the league happened to be against Rotherham at the start of the year.
Bristol lost for a third consecutive match in all competitions after being beaten 2-1 by Birmingham in the midweek match. The run of three defeats started with the 1-0 loss against Wolves in the FA Cup.
Despite struggling in the early part of the campaign, Preston were able to get a 1-0 win over Bristol in the reverse fixture. This was preceded by a 2-1 victory in the last meeting between the two teams at the Deepdale Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions for this game anticipate a victory for Preston.

Bristol were extremely nervous and committed a lot of silly mistakes in the recent game against Birmingham and this may serve as the precursor for the upcoming meeting with Preston, who have been able to claim six consecutive wins over this opponent. Bristol’s last success over Preston was back in 2011 and it is almost in distant memory. The nine-game winning sequence for Bristol put them in a very strong position, but the players are now starting to doubt themselves once again. Our preview would go with a success for the home team.

Correct Score odds
Preston were able to register a 3-1 success over Millwall in yet another decisive performance in the attacking third of the pitch. Preston have now scored more than 2.5 goals in two out of the last three games, and Bristol can fear for the worst if they make the same mistakes as they did against Birmingham. Johnson’s team, though, do have players like Diedhiou scoring once again and our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 home win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been more than 2.5 goals in three out of the last five matches for both Preston and Bristol. The trend is expected to continue with both teams having decent offensive performance and Bristol have been especially poor at the back with some nervous performances. Our total goals prediction would opt for over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sean Maguire has been able to hit a sweet spot over the last couple of games. The 24-year-old has been able to come up with goals in two out of his last three games for Preston. He has contributed two more assists over the last month. His recent form makes our first goalscorer prediction back the Ireland forward.
