Luton vs Bristol City prediction and top betting tips

Luton seem to have hit form at just the right time as they look to lock down their place in the top six before the end of the season. Will they add another three points to their tally here as they welcome Bristol City to Kenilworth Road? Find out with our Luton vs Bristol City match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Luton vs Bristol City Prediction 1: Luton to win

Bristol City might have snapped a three game winless run last time out but a home win over Blackpool, who are woeful away from home, won't do much to boost their chances here and that's why we have this game down as a Luton win. The Hatters have been in decent form of late winning three of their last four games as they've put together a little unbeaten run with a draw in there too. Most recent was an impressive win over Sheffield United and given they've won each of their last six home games against Bristol City, they'll expect to follow that victory up here. We're predicting they do exactly that.

Luton vs Bristol City Prediction 2: Under 2.5 goals

The second of our football betting tips for this game comes from the total goals market. With all the stats to hand, it's an under 2.5 goals prediction that stands out as the obvious pick. Luton have fallen south of that 2.5 cut off in four of their last five games whilst averaging just 1.6 goals per game. Bristol City meanwhile have seen each of their last three games – and four of their last five – fall short of the 2.5 marker; their game average in that period also sits at 1.6 goals. Two of the last three head to head games have gone under the 2.5 cut off too.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the Luton vs Bristol City odds translate into probability ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Luton odds: 13/15 (1.87) – 54%

Draw odds: 5/2 (3.50) – 29%

Bristol City odds: 10/3 (4.33) – 23%

The bookies clearly don't fancy Bristol City for much of a points return in this game with their odds pretty long. We wouldn't bite on them though because we don't feel they offer value. The home win, however, definitely does with Luton in a good place. In fact, whilst we wouldn't offer predictions at this level owing to lower odds, there could be a fair bit of money land on home or draw with punters likely to see it as a ‘banker'.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Luton vs Bristol City

Luton

Luton had a really good win at the weekend as they beat Sheffield United and despite just a few days between games we can see them opting for the same XI to start here. That will see them lineup in a 3-4-1-2 formation. One player that might challenge the unchanged starting lineup is the experienced Sonny Bradley – equally though, a bench spot might have to do again.

Predicted lineup – Horvath, Osho, Lockyer, Bradley, Onyedinma, Mpanzu, Nakamaba, Drameh, Campbell, Morris, Adebayo

Bristol City

Bristol City broke a winless run at the weekend and will be desperate to build a little run off the back of that. With that considered, the easiest way to achieve that positive continuity is probably with a similar lineup. We see them going unchanged here.

Predicted lineup – O'Leary, Tanner, Vyner, Pring, DaSilva, Scott, King, Sykes, Weimann, Mehmeti, Wells

Player to watch

Luton attacker Carlton Morris remains a man in fine form after netting once again at the weekend. That goal took him onto 15 for the season whilst, form wise, he now has four goals in his last six games. The Robins defence won't be looking forward to facing him, that's for sure.
