Preston North End vs Bristol City: Top free betting tips

Our Preston North End vs Bristol City prediction is for this Championship match to be an intriguing clash. Both sides sit in midtable just one point apart but separated by three places. 

Preston has been in rotten form in recent months having earned just two wins since the 10th of November, in that time Preston has lost seven times, drawn once and won twice. The two wins came against the only two teams based in West Yorkshire – Huddersfield Town and Leeds United.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

Five of Preston's previous seven matches have seen more than 2.5 goals scored with it happening in none of Bristol City's previous three matches. But recent head-to-head matches suggest that this is likely to happen with three of the previous four matches all ending with 2.5 goals or more scored.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Preston North End have failed to keep a clean sheet in all of their previous seven matches. Both teams have scored in four of the previous five head-to-head matches. With the attacking power both of these teams have, both teams should find the back of the net.

​​Correct score prediction: 2-2 Draw

For our final prediction, we have gone with a very entertaining 2-2 draw. Bristol City and Preston are very close in terms of the league table and are both in rocky form, but we can see the style of plays from both sides giving neutrals an entertaining goal-fest to watch.
