Bristol City vs Plymouth: Top free betting tips

After a tough nil-nil draw against West Brom, Bristol City entertains Plymouth Argyle during the midweek. The Championship Round 7 meeting promises an interesting scenario with only a couple of points separating them.

Match result prediction: Bristol City to win

Bristol and Plymouth are in contrasting form at the moment. The latter have lost four of their last five matches while the former are unbeaten in their last three Championship outings. In h2h battles, four of the last five battles have finished in favour of the Robins. As they meet in midweek, with the Ashton Gate crowd egging them on, we expect Bristol to triumph in this encounter.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Only one of Bristol's last five matches saw Over 2.5 goals and it was their away win against Swansea. On the other hand, Plymouth's last five matches have been high-scoring affairs with at least three goals witnessed during the 90 minutes of action. Their last two matches in the Championship finished with Over 3.5 goals. We are going with the conservative estimate and expect the Robins to force Over 2.5 goals in this meeting.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Bristol City

The last three encounters between these sides saw 1-0 scorelines exchanged. The three prior meetings saw at least five goals scored. Plymouth's last five matches saw over 2.5 goals and two of these finished with a 2-1 result against them. Interestingly, their last two away results were 2-1 defeats. Given their poor form and City getting some results under their belt, we expect a repeat with Bristol triumphing.

Bristol City vs Plymouth: Form, recent games, and news

Bristol City preview

It has been a strange 2023/23 campaign for the Robins. They started with a couple of wins and a draw before going on their poor run of three matches without a win. They arrested that decline with a win over Swansea City on the road. West Brom were then strangled at Ashton Gate to get a point from the meeting. They have risen to the situation when called upon but need to start scoring as five goals in six matches will not take them far.

Plymouth preview

From their six outings thus far, the Pilgrims have impressed with their wins over Huddersfield and Blackburn, scoring three goals on both occasions. While they have scored goals with regularity, their defence has let them down. It has come to the forefront with three Championship defeats in four matches. This form has steeped in their cup run where they were knocked out by Crystal Palace in a six-goal bonanza.
