Preston vs Bristol City: Our top betting predictions
Preston are keeping the playoff places within reach right now but, sooner or later, they need to make their move to break into that top six. Will that move start here with three points against a Bristol City side who sit closer to the drop zone than the playoffs? Find out with our Preston vs Bristol City match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.
Spoils will be shared
We begin our predictions for this Championship match by backing the draw. Preston have been in decent general form but, at home, they're atrocious with just one win from their last six games at Deepdale. Bristol City meanwhile are unbeaten in five away games but, notably, have only won one of those matches. With both sides finding wins hard to come by, both might just take another point for their pocket. The head to head history suggests that a draw could be the outcome too with two of the last three head to head meets ending level. Considering the odds that are on offer for the draw as well, this is a good value bet.
Expecting a few goals
Our next prediction for this match comes from the total goals market and, whilst the stats don't read as absolute bankers, we are expecting a few goals in this game; we're betting on over 2.5 goals. Preston's form is a shoo-in for an over 2.5 goals tip to come in with each of their last four games going over that 2.5 threshold. Those four games have offered up a combined 14 goals giving a game average of 3.5 goals. Bristol City's form is a little more grey. Only two of their last four games have gone over 2.5 goals but 13 goals across that period gives them a strong game average of 3.3 goals. Furthermore, the head to head record of these teams are good indicators of the sort of game we might expect; each of the last two clashes have gone over 2.5 goals with seven goals netted across the two.

Draw odds: 11/5 (3.20) – 31%
Bristol City odds: 19/10 (2.90) – 35%
Preston might come into this game as favourites to win the match but at 41% probability vs a 35% probability is not remotely a done deal. The bookmakers clearly feel this is going to be a match up that could swing either way.
Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Preston vs Bristol City
Preston fell short in their last game but that was a FA Cup tie with Tottenham. Prior to that, they'd beaten Birmingham and started to build a little bit of momentum with three wins in four games. We're anticipating a return to that lineup for this ecounter.
Predicted lineup – Woodman, Hughes, Storey, Lindsay, Brady, Woodburn, Ledson, McCann, Browne, Cannon, Delap
Bristol City
The Robins are threatening to spread their wings right now with very few teams having the better of them of late. The most recent example of that was their comprehensive win over West Brom. Young attacker Samuel Bell impressed in that game and could come into the starting XI here.
Predicted lineup – O'Leary, Tanner, Vyner, DaSilva, Atkinson, James, Naismith, Sykes, Scott, Bell, Wells
Starting Lineups

Player to watch
We're not saying he's the best player on the pitch but we're really keen to see how the young Sam Bell does for the Robins. He's not played much senior football but three goals and three assists in the FA Cup suggests he could have an impact for the first team. Will they let him loose from the start? We would.
