Bristol City aren’t the sort of side that any Premier League would want to be visiting at the moment. They have been in some sharp form. Will Wolves be able to handle themselves at Ashton Gate? Read our Bristol City v Wolves betting tips for more.
Bristol City 16/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 13th, 2019 at 3:34 a.m.)
The Robins can’t stop winning games at the moment. The Championship side are on a tremendous streak of form. They took a 2-1 home win over QPR in league action on Tuesday night, their ninth win on the bounce. Looking back a little further at their form, they are undefeated in their last fifteen (W11 D4). That’s some pretty epic stuff.
They have won their last six games at Ashton Gate as well, shipping only three goals in that sequence (three clean sheets). The Robins have scored exactly two goals in each of their last four home games and are on a nine-match scoring streak at home. In this season’s FA Cup they knocked out Premier League side Huddersfield in the third round and then took out Bolton in the last round. Both of those wins were on home soil.
Premier League side Wolves have been in good form. They got a late equaliser at home against Newcastle in the Premier League on Monday night, moving them onto a six-match undefeated streak of form (W4 D2). They have been scoring pretty well too as they have netted at least two goals in five of their last six played (a six-match scoring streak).
Wolves have suffered just the one defeat in their last six games on the road in all competitions, which was a league visit to Man City. Wolves have scored at least two goals in three of their last four away games. They have not, however, earned an away clean sheet in their last nine road fixtures. Wolves have lost two of their last three trips to Ashton Gate but took a 2-1 win on their last visit in the 2017 Championship.
We feel that there should be enough in the home side to at least get a replay out of this. Bristol City are confident and the probably aren’t going to give Wolves an easy time of things. Draw.

Bristol City are on a hot run of form at the moment in the Championship. They will be looking to extend their big winning streak even further as they welcome QPR to Ashton Gate. Things are not going as well for Rangers who are on a four-match losing streak. Read our Bristol City v QPR betting tips for more.
Bristol City 4/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 10th, 2019 at 11:44 p.m.)
Bristol City are on a big six-match winning streak in the Championship having collected a win at Blackburn on the weekend. Five of their last six wins have all been with a clean sheet as well, conceding just one goal in that sequence. Overall on home soil this season in the Championship, Bristol City are at W6 D5 L4. Bristol City are actually unbeaten in their last 12 league games so it has been highly impressive from them.
They have averaged under a goal per game against them at home, where they are on a three-match winning streak. The Robins are unbeaten in their last six at Ashton Gate (W3 D3). Just 27% of Bristol City’s home games have gone over 2.5 goals. Four of their six home wins have been by a one-goal margin only. Currently, Bristol City have scored in each of their last 12 league games home and away combined. There is a big half-time trend with them at home as they have been level of the break in 10 of their 15 league home games. Middlesbrough are the only side to have a better defensive record in the division than Bristol City.
The Robins rolled out a big 3-0 win at Loftus Road earlier this season
Bristol City are unbeaten in four Championship games against QPR (W3 D1)
QPR are winless in eight trips to Bristol City
Both teams have scored in just two of the last six meetings
QPR lost at home against Birmingham on the weekend, which has left them in a bit of desperate form. QPR are on a four-match losing streak in the division and in that sequence of games they have conceded a total of 11 goals. They are without a clean sheet in their last five league fixtures. Away from home, this season in the Championship QPR are at W4 D4 L7. Three of the four wins that they have taken on the road have been against the current bottom three of the Reading, Bolton and Ipswich.
QPR have averaged exactly one goal per game away from home this season and five of the seven away losses that they have recorded have been by a one-goal margin. QPR have been level at half-time in eight of their 15 away games. QPR have conceded a least two goals in each of their last three league fixtures. They have conceded 62% of their away goals this season in the second half fixtures.
It has to be the home win which gets backed for this one as Bristol City are in such tremendous form at the moment. QPR have just badly lost their way so it is the straight out home win for our prediction.

This FA Cup fourth-round tie features two Championship sides who are having very different seasons. Bristol City are in hot winning form at the moment as they push for promotion. Bolton meanwhile are stuck in the relegation zone. Read our Bristol City v Bolton betting tips for more.
Bristol City 1/2
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 23rd, 2109 at 3:23 p.m.)
Bristol City have put together a five-match winning streak across all competitions so go into this fixture with some strong form. In the last round of the competition, they were at home and knocked out Premier League side Huddersfield by a 1-0 scoreline. There has been a trend of low scoring games involving Bristol City lately as four of their last five played have ended under 2.5 goals.
Bristol City played host to Bolton recently and claimed a 2-1 home victory. The goal conceded in the match is only one shipped in their last five games played. Bristol City are undefeated in six at Ashton Gate and seven of their last nine games have ended under 2.5 goals. Four the home wins Bristol City have recorded this season have been by a 1-0 scoreline and the Robins have won each of their last three home games against the Trotters.
It is fair to say is not been a good season Bolton who are second from bottom in the Championship as they take a break for the FA Cup. In the last round of the FA Cup, they recorded a 5-2 victory at home over Walsall. However, that is only one of two victories that Bolton have earned in their last 19 fixtures.
They have been struggling badly in front of goal and have only manage to score in three of their last eight fixtures across all competitions. The Trotters have won only two away games this season and they haven’t won any of their last 12 games on the road. Bolton are on a five-match losing streak away from home and they only managed to score in two of those five defeats.
After the recent home win against them, Bristol City do look clear favourites here. Given that Bolton are struggling in front of goal a Bristol City to win to nil option is at 13/10 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 23rd, 2109 at 3:23 p.m.).
24th January 2019 / lee - Category: FA Cup & League Cup Betting
The teams will get a break next weekend with the third round of the FA Cup swinging into action. So this is going to be an important push for three points for the teams on Tuesday. It will be a great way to start the new year with three points in the bag. Over the weekend the top two of Leeds and Norwich both lost.
Will they get back to winning ways? Will West Brom be able to muscle their way into the top-two? Down at the other end, Ipswich are now seven points adrift of safety after yet another defeat.
Here are our Championship Predictions and Tips for January 1st, 2019 and these are all 3.00 pm kickoffs.
Villa drew for the third time in five matches as they had to settle for a point out at Preston on the weekend. The Villains have lost only one of their last ten games now but they haven’t managed a win in any of their last three on home soil (D2 L1). Their defence keeps failing them time and time again. QPR are having a surprisingly good season and are unbeaten in four (W3 D1) after taking a point at Reading on the weekend. Their away form hasn’t been great but a win at Notts Forest in their last road game shows what they are capable off.
QPR are more than good enough to get a point at Villa Park. Rangers haven’t conceded in their last three and while they aren’t a high-scoringside, they can frustrate the hosts. The draw is at 14/5 odds* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm)
The Tigers stepped up to the plate on the weekend as they sprung a surprise win out at league leaders Leeds. It was a solid 2-0 victory as well for the Tigers. That improved their current form to W5 D2 in their last seven and it was their fourth win on the bounce. They fired themselves up to mid-table safety on the weekend. They take on Bolton who can’t shake off the attention of the drop zone right beneath them. The Trotters were held to 0-0 draw at home against Stoke and are winless in ten on the road, losing their last three.
The Tigers are flowing with confidence at the moment and Hull to win to nil at 7/5 is a great looking option* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm). Bolton aren’t a threat in front of goal.
The Tractor Boys just can’t winning momentum going to help them get away from the foot of the table. They are five points behind Reading who are second from bottom now. Ipswich go at home in midweek against Millwall who are just above the drop zone after having picked up back to back wins. That’s the kind of thing Ipswich can only dream of at the moment. Millwall got themselves a fantastic three points at home against Nottingham Forest on the weekend. Their back to back wins have been at home though and the Lions have lost their last two away games and are searching for their first away success of the season.
If Millwall are ever going to break that winless duck away from home this season, it has to be in this one. They have form behind them and the simple option here is backing the away win at 13/10 odds* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm)
This is a mid-table clash between the two sides who are sat level on 35 points each after 25 games of the season down. The Potters could only manage a 0-0 draw out at the struggling Bolton over the weekend. They are carrying a big home form though having won their last two on home soil to nil. They were wins against Ipswich and Millwall who are both in the bottom five though. They’ll get a tougher challenge from Bristol City. The Robins are undefeated in seven games now after edging Rotherham on the weekend. They don’t score a lot, but they score frequently.
The Robins may have enough about them to go and get a win. They did recently win at Birmingham who are up in seventh place. This just has a draw written all over it through. The outright draw is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm)
The Latics have slipped back lately and they need that great home form to resurface again. After such a great season on home soil where they lost just one of their opening ten home games, they have lost back to back fixtures there. It was that home form keeping them afloat too because it’s been rough on the road for them. Can the Latics rediscover their winning touch? It’s going to be tough with Sheffield United coming to town. The Blades are up into fourth after having posted back to back wins over Blackburn and Derby in the last weekend. They scored exactly three goals in both of those as well. With a four math u run going away from home, they could extend their winning streak.
The Blades look the more likely of the two to get the job done. It’s been good stuff from them over the last weekend and Wigan have a big slump to try and dig themselves out of. The straightforward away win at 11/10 odds is a good proposition* (betting odds taken from Bet365 on December 30th, 2018 at 9:49 pm).

Bristol City v Millwall Championship Preview, 2nd December 1.30pm
Bristol City snapped a four-match losing streak in midweek as they collected an away win at bottom side Ipswich. It was a narrow squeeze through. The Robins get back to home soil on the weekend as they play host to Millwall. The Lions are hovering just above the drop zone now on goal difference alone after another loss on Wednesday. Read our Bristol City v Millwall betting tips for more.
Bristol City 11/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 28th, 2018 at 6:39 pm p.m.)
Bristol City snapped a four-match losing streak in the Championship as they came from behind to win at Ipswich on Wednesday night. Their home form this season is W3 D2 L4 so far but they have been struggling at Ashton Gate recently with a W1 L3 record in their last four. Bristol City have both scored nine and conceded nine goals at home this season and they have failed to hit the back of the net in their last two there. Both teams not to score is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 29th, 2018 at 4:42 pm)
The Robins are without a clean sheet in any of their last five league games but each of their last three at home have gone under 2.5 goals. In five of their nine league games at home this season, Bristol City have been level at halftime. Of the goals they have scored at home, two-thirds have come in the second half of games. Under 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 29th, 2018 at 4:42 pm). The Robins have earned a clean sheet in just 22% of home games. Just four teams have a worse home record in this season’s Championship than Bristol City.
There was a 0-0 draw between them in last season’s corresponding fixture
Millwall are unbeaten in their last four league games against City (W2 D2)
Bristol City are W1 D2 in their last three at home against the Lions
Both teams have scored in three of the last ten meetings
The Lions lost 2-0 at home against Birmingham on Wednesday night extending their winless streak of form. They have gone D1 L3 in their last four league outings now. Their defence has been struggling as they have conceded at least two goals in three of their last four games. They are still on the hunt for their first road victory of the new season, going D2 L7 across their nine games. They are currently running on a three-match losing streak on their travels. The goals have been hard to come by for them as well as they have scored seven goals in nine road games.
The Lions have conceded at an average of two goals per away game. Bristol City to win to nil is at 12/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 29th, 2018 at 4:42 pm). They have come up with only the one clean sheet on their travels this season and haven’t banked one in any of their last eight away from The Den. 71% of their seven away goals this season have come in the second half of games. They have conceded at least two goals in each of their last six games out on the road. They start the weekend Championship action above the relegation zone on goal difference only.
The clearest option is backing the home win in this one. That is largely down to how poor Millwall have been on their travels. The Robins have been struggling for a bit of form lately but can build on that midweek win at Ipswich. Home win.
29th November 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Bristol City are looking to snap themselves out of a four-match winless streak of form, having drawn their last two. They could use a lift back on home soil at Ashton Gate. They get a visit from Sheffield Wednesday who have also drawn their last two and continue to be a really tough side to beat. Read our Bristol City v Sheffield Wednesday betting tips for more.
Bristol City 3/4
Sheffield Wednesday 15/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 4th, 2018 at 1:53 p.m.)
The Robins have gone D2 L2 for their last four games and just are trying to find that winning touch again. Their home form at Ashton Gate is at W2 D2 L1 for the season and they are undefeated in their last three (W D1). So they have been showing good form there. They picked up a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa last weekend at home. Low scoring games have been a feature of the action at Ashton Gate with just 20% of their home games going over 2.5 goals.
So under 2.5 goals for this one at 9/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 5:21 pm). That leads our Bristol City v Sheffield Wednesday tips. Of the five goals that they have conceded this season at Ashton Gate, all but one of them have been in the first half of matches. The Robins have managed to score more than one goal in just one of their home fixtures this term.
The Owls are proving to be a really resilient bunch with just the one defeat in their last eight league games (W4 D3). So they have a bit of form behind them. Over the last week, they have held both Leeds and West Brom, a couple of the top sides in the division, to back to back draws. The Owls are undefeated in three games now. They are on a seven-match scoring streak in the league and both teams to score is at 5/6 odds* (betting odds taken on October 4th, 2018 at 5:21 pm).
Interestingly all four of the league wins that they have posted this season have been by a 2-1 scoreline. Wednesday are W2 L3 out on their travels this season so they haven’t been as solid as they have been at home. In their last away match though they did get a good 2-1 success out at Aston Villa. Both teams have scored in 80% of their away games this season and the Owls have not taken a clean sheet away from Hillsborough yet this term.
Bristol City are W2 D2 in their last four home games against Sheffield Wednesday. The Robins collected four points from their two games against the Owls last season and it leaves them undefeated in three against them. Four of the last six clashes between the two clubs in the Championship have produced a home win (D2).
Bristol City are a good side and it’s unlikely that wins are going to keep avoiding them. Sheffield Wednesday haven’t done as well on the road as they have at home and because of that, for our Bristol City v Sheffield Wednesday predictions, we are sticking with the home win.
4th October 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
The Robins have hit a sticky patch for the season after their barnstorming start. They have lost their last two now so need to come up with a response. They get a home game on Friday night against an Aston Villa who have fallen a bit short of expected standards with wins having been hard to come by. Read our Bristol City v Aston Villa betting tips for more.
Bristol City 6/4
Aston Villa 7/4
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 26th, 2018 at 11:44 p.m.)
The Robins were on a great four-match winning streak in the league, but have just slipped back a bit. They have lost their last two league games, both of which were out on the road though at West Brom and Wigan. They get back to home soil where they have won their last two so that could be the boost that they need. Overall their form at Ashton Gate Reads W2 D1 and they have scored five goals in their last two home games. We are going over 2.5 goals at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 3:00 pm).
71% of the goals that Bristol City have scored this season have been after the halftime break. Andreas Wiseman has been their go-to man so far this season with five goals on the board, although four of those have been away from home. We are going to take a look at both teams to score at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 3:00 pm) for our Bristol City v Aston Villa predictions.
A lot more was expected of Aston Villa this season. They opened with back to back wins but have since managed just the one win in their last seven played (D4 L2). So it’s not happening for them and last weekend they suffered a home loss against Sheffield Wednesday. The Villa defence has been leaky this season and there should be enough for Bristol City to get at them. We see the appeal in a Bristol City 2/1 win at 17/2 odds* (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 3:00 pm).
The Villains are winless in their last three road games in the league (D2 L1) and overall home and away this season they have managed to take just the one clean sheet. Two-thirds of their goals away from home have cropped up in the second half of matches. They have conceded 71% of their away goals in the first half of matches. They have been level at the break in three of their four away games this season, two of those 1-1. The 1-1 halftime correct score option is at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken from September 27th, 2018 at 3:00 pm). Villa starts just the point behind City so would lose big ground if they were to suffer a defeat on Friday night.
Aston Villa definitely came out on top in last season’s Championship meetings between the two clubs. After a 1-1 draw on the road, they posted a big 5-0 home win over the Robins. In the four previous Championship meetings between the two of them, Villa are W1 D1 L1 against Bristol City.
Bristol City’s home form has been there and they are going to be keen to get back to winning ways with a big performance here. The Villains are shaky and unreliable at best and the powerful Bristol City attack can carve out enough chances to win this.
27th September 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Wigan have made a pretty decent return to the second tier of English football and they picked a good three points at home in midweek. Their defence will probably come under some pressure on Friday night as they face up to Bristol City. The Robins were on a big five-match winning streak before losing at West Brom in midweek. Read our Wigan v Bristol City betting tips for more.
Bristol City 11/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)
After picking up a good midweek win at home over Hull, that took Wigan’s overall home form this season to W3 D1 in the Championship. That’s not bad at all for a newly promoted side and it suggests that they can hold their own in this one. We like the look of the draw in the match outright for this one, but we are going to look at the 5/1 odds appeal* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.) on the 1-1 correct score.
Wigan have scored at least two goals in three of their four home games this season which has been a great output from them and we feel that they can stick in there against a good Bristol City side. Will Grigg and Nick Powell are the joint-top-scorers for them this season with three goals each and the former is at 3/2 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.).
Bristol City had put together a fantastic five-match winning streak, all without conceding a single goal. That form saw them shoot up the table. But it fell apart for them in midweek as they were taken out 4-2 at the Hawthorns against West Brom. So that will leave them to pick up the pieces a bit and sometimes it’s hard to bounce back immediately from setbacks like that. The one thing that it did at least do was continue their good scoring form. They have only failed to net in one league match this season.
Andreas Weimann has been in good scoring form for them lately but Famara Diedhiou was on the scoresheet for them in midweek and he is at 13/2 odds in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Out on the road, this season Bristol City are now W2 D1 L2 and they have picked up a clean sheet in two of those. Considering they were on a five-match clean-sheet streak it was surprising that they collapsed so badly against the Baggies. Can they respond?
Bristol City banked back to back wins over Wigan the last time that they were together in the Championship. That was in the 2016/17 season. That is their only previous meetings in the Championship. There’s not a great deal of head to head history between them with Bristol City being 12-5 ahead with seven wins.
We are looking at the draw for our Wigan v Bristol City predictions and that is because the Latics have done so well on home soil this season. They will be taking on a City side who will be a little deflated after having had their winning streak snapped. Draw.
19th September 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
West Brom has made steady progress so far this season in the Championship but will be looking for a little bit more as they start the midweek action in eighth place. Bristol City has hit top form with a four-match winning streak going and will prove to be a stern test for the Baggies at the Hawthorns. Read our West Brom v Bristol City betting tips for more.
West Brom 19/20
Bristol City 10/3
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 17th, 2018 at 11:22 pm)
West Brom haven’t had a bad season but they have just struggled to get a good stretch of consistency going in the division. They are W3 D1 L1 in their last five games so it is pretty decent from them. They have won their last two home games, scoring nine goals in total in those two fixtures against QPR and Stoke. The concern for the Baggies really is that they haven’t taken a clean sheet yet this season and both teams to score is at 8/11 odds for the game* (betting odds taken from September 17th, 2018 at 11:00 pm).
Four of their seven games in the Championship this season have ended over 2.5 goals and that’s probably an option worth looking at for this one. Over 2.5 goals is at 9/10 odds* (betting odds taken from September 17th, 2018 at 11:00 pm). All three of their fixtures at the Hawthorns have done that one. They could well have Tyrone Mings in action for the first time this season following his signing. Over the weekend they picked up a draw against the struggling Birmingham and the Baggies probably played their worst game of the season, being dreadful in possession. If they don’t step it up then they could be at risk.
The Robin have strung together a four-match winning streak in the league and have flown up the table. They have scored nine unanswered goals in that sequence as well. They are actually unbeaten on the road with a W2 D1 record and both wins in that sequence of away games have ended with a clean sheet for them. We are not fancying them to get a clean sheet on the board in this one a 2-1 win for City is at 12/1 odds* (betting odds taken from September 17th, 2018 at 11:00 pm) and will have some appeal in this one considering how well they are playing.
They took a narrow win over Sheffield United on the weekend and will likely send out the same starting eleven as well. Bristol City have Andreas Weimann in hot scoring form for them with five goals to his name this season. He is at 13/5 odds in the anytime goalscorer market for the game* (betting odds taken from September 17th, 2018 at 11:00 pm). This would be a big marker laid down by the Robins if they can make it five on the bounce.
The last time these two were together was in early 2016 when they met in the FA Cup. West Brom won the replay 1-0 out on the road. Their last league meeting was back in the 2009/10 Championship season when they traded home wins. From the four previous Championship meetings between the two clubs, there have been three home wins and a draw. The Baggies are undefeated in their last five home games against the Robins, winning three.
We are going to roll with the draw in the match outright here. West Brom can’t be as poor as they were against Birmingham last weekend, and Bristol City carry a good enough threat, but there will be easier away games than this for them. Draw.
17th September 2018 / lee - Category: Championship Betting
Millwall’s great unbeaten streak of form continued over Easter, collecting four points from their two games and that leaves them level on points with Bristol City, just outside of the play off zone. So this is a huge clash between the two top-six hopefuls. Will Bristol City, who aren’t in great winning form, be able to survive a trip to the Den?
Millwall 6/5, Draw 11/5, Bristol City 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 10:39 p.m. on April 2nd, 2018)
Millwall are still going strong in their charge towards the play off places. They are now fourteen games unbeaten in the Championship and they are on a twelve match undefeated streak of form at home. It has been such a fantastic run of form from them and they have won three of their last four there and their last two have been with a clean sheet as well. Millwall to win to nil at Ladbrokes is at 13/5 odds. The Lions have actually only won one of ten games this season against sides currently above them in the table, but they are clicking so well at the moment. Their overall home form this season is W10 D7 L3 and they have scored at an average of 1.5 goals per games. Just 40% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals and that is because the Lions have been sold at the back, having earned a clean sheet in 40% of their home league fixtures. They are on a five-match scoring streak at The Den currently and under 2.5 goals has happened in each of their last three on home soil, so that is the trend to ride.
The Robins have managed only the two wins since the start of February and those were at Ashton Gate. They have drawn their last two on the road but they have not won any of their last nine away from home in the second tier. It’s a poor run of form which has seen them struggle to hold on to a play off place. They head into the weekend, like Millwall, just a point outside of the top six. So there is everything to play for still. The Robins have conceded 62% of their away goals in the second half of matches this season and in the Ladbrokes correct score market, the shortest priced option is a 1-1 draw at 5/1, with a Millwall 1-0 at 6/1* (Betting Odds taken at 9:51 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). Bristol City have failed to score in two of their last four away games and they average 1.25 goals per road game. They have been level at half time in over half of their away games. Bobby Reid is their top score on the road but Famara Diedhiou has scored three of Bristol City’s last five away goals.
There was a 0-0 played out between the two of them earlier this season and that leaves Millwall unbeaten in their last three against the Robins (W1 D2). From the previous seven Championship meetings things are even at two wins each and three drawn games. Millwall’s last home game against City was back in 2013 which they won. Both teams have scored in just three of the last nine meetings in all competitions.
Bristol City just doesn’t look strong enough to hold out against the powerful form of Millwall. The Lions have been going so well and should make the most of this huge game on home soil. They could be up in the play off zone after this.
