​Bristol Rovers vs Charlton: Top free betting tips

Our Bristol Rovers vs Charlton prediction is for a close match that could easily finish without a winner. Will the hosts find a way to build on a famous Boxing Day win?

Bristol Rovers moved into the top half of the table with a lucky Boxing Day win against leaders Portsmouth. The Gas are growing in confidence after 3 wins in their last 4 matches. Charlton on the other hand lost in their last match and they are now 2 points behind Rovers in the standings. The Addicks are without a win in their last 4 away matches (D3 L1).

​​Correct outcome prediction: Draw

Our first Bristol Rovers vs Charlton prediction is that the spoils will be shared. The Gas saw half of their 10 home league games so far end in draws – W4 D5 L1. Now they are up against a Charlton team that recorded 4 consecutive draws coming into this game. 

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Our next Bristol Rovers vs Charlton prediction is that both teams will find the back of the net. All of Bristol’s last 7 matches had BTTS outcomes and they keep struggling defensively while scoring at the other end regularly. 

Charlton are a very similar team that also saw 4 of their last 5 matches producing goals for both sides involved. 

​​Correct score prediction: 1-1 draw

Following the logic from the first two free betting tips comes our final Bristol Rovers vs Charlton prediction. Considering both teams’ strength in attack and weaknesses in defence we think the result of this game will be 1-1. 

Charlton saw 3 of their last 5 games in all competitions produce 1-1 draws. Also, 2 of Bristol’s last 3 home matches finished in 1-1 draws.

How far will Charlton’s fans travel to Bristol?

Despite the relatively short distance to travel Charlton’s fans need to be prepared for patience as they will have to manoeuvre some of the busiest roads of the country to make their way down south to Bristol. 

The driving distance between the cities is only 56 miles (99km) but due to the busy road network that will have to be crossed the estimated travel time for this journey is just shy of 2 hours. Of course, any delay due to a road closure could easily double that time. 

​Bristol Rovers vs Charlton: Tickets

We can confirm that Charlton have sold out all of their allocated away tickets for this fixture already. The 756 allocated away tickets were grabbed quickly and for security reasons, the away fans are not allowed to purchase extra tickets on the day of the game from the Memorial Stadium.

Our understanding is that only a limited amount of tickets remain for sale for Bristol fans too. This is at the time of writing.
