Bristol Rovers vs Coventry Prediction
After the FA Cup loss, Bristol will be meeting Coventry yet again. In the previous time they hosted the Sky Blues, an own goal led Bristol to lose the lead in the game. Even though the hosting side has prevailed in all their h2h clashes so far, we can expect a change in that trend at Memorial Stadium.
Here is why. Bristol Rovers have been winless in their last eleven matches across all major contests. Most of their losses have come since they have lost their scoring boots in their games. Evidently, the Pirates have failed to score goals in five of their last six games.
Even at home, Bristol has dropped points in the last six attempts with three losses in it. Also, they have not scored any goals in their last three home matches. So, their chances of winning against Coventry is a rare probability.
Coventry has stayed unbeaten with five wins in their last nine fixtures in the major competitions. Also, they have scored goals in all but two of their prior ten matches in the schedule.
With their good form, the visitor has lost only two of the last ten away fixtures in their major contests. Besides, the Sky Blues are unbeaten in the past five trips on the road.
Hence, Coventry will be the best option as the favorite to win in the clash. So, draw no bet upon Coventry as a safe bet just in case. If you want bigger returns, an alternate bet is available on Coventry to win.
Even though Bristol Rovers are not likely to find the back of the net in the game, Coventry is capable to make up for it. Their previous h2h clash saw the Sky Blues slotting in three goals to none at home against the Pirates.
Hence, the punters can also bet on safer ground in the goal department with the game probably going to end with over 1.5 goals in ninety minutes.
