Bristol City vs Sunderland top free betting tips

Bristol City will host Sunderland at their recently redeveloped Ashton Gate stadium in another match from this busy December in the Championship. After losing two matches in a row, Sunderland has since bounced back with two wins and one draw to get back on their chase for the playoffs. Their most recent match was an impressive 1-0 victory over high-flying Leeds United. Bristol City will be looking to earn a first win in four matches after recent defeats to Southampton, Norwich and Blackburn have left the club in midtable.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

Both teams to score is very likely in this fixture. Sunderland put in an excellent defensive display in their recent match against Leeds United, but that has not been shown too much since their promotion back to the Championship. Bristol City despite being in bad form, has scored in all but one of their previous five matches with Southampton being the only side to keep them out.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals

Three of the previous four meetings have seen 2.5 goals or more with sixteen goals being scored across those four meetings. Bristol City has failed to keep a clean sheet since a 0-0 draw with QPR in mid-November and has conceded at least two goals on three occasions since while Sunderland surprisingly kept a clean sheet against Leeds. However, before that win over Leeds, Sunderland had conceded in all but one of their previous ten matches and had conceded at least twice four times.

Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Sunderland

a 2-1 win for the Black Cats is our final prediction for this match. Sunderland has pulled off two incredible victories as of late against teams above them in the league table. Bristol City should be an easier task for the managerless side but we still predict the match to be a close one. Players like Jack Clarke and Jobe Bellingham have been shining recently and it will take a lot of excellent defensive work from Bristol City to ensure those two are not allowed to dictate the match.
