In a sentence: With Bristol City chasing promotion and Sheff Wed looking to further away from the drop zone, we could be in for a tight and nervy game at Ashton Gate.

Last time: A 0-0 at Hillsborough kept Bristol in the play-off places but dented Wednesday’s faint hopes back in November.

This time: City are 4/5 to win, a draw is 5/2 and an away win Is at 18/5.

You might remember: Bristol City have only beaten Sheffield Wednesday once since 2012, a 4-1 win back in 2016.

Betting Tips & Predictions

Don’t be surprised to see Bristol City’s players celebrating after facing Sheffield Wednesday

By looking at the odds on this game, Bristol City are firm favourites for a win and are in need of one to fend off Middlesbrough in the final play-off spot after a poor run of results has seen them drop to 6th. A 3-1 Robins will get you a price of 14/1 and is probably the safest win you could see this weekend.

That being said, try not to rule out a shock Wednesday win, with a sneaky 1-0 priced at 11/1 and a 1-1 is at 13/2, so any kind of win for the Yorkshire side will get you high odds. A 2-2 seems unlikely given the amount of goals, but at 16/1 it could be worth a little look, if that’s what you’re backing.

As for other kinds of special goal bets, both teams to score is at 10/11 for both yes and no so whilst it may not look exactly lucrative, at least you know you’ll get the same amount regardless of the result! But if you want an exact number of goals scored, you can get 5/1 on four goals in the game, whilst no goals is at 10/1 and could be worth backing a low scoring draw given both sides’ habit of getting draws in their last six games.

Match Summary


Look out for:

Bristol City coming from behind to win is 7/1 whilst Wednesday coming from behind is priced at 14/1.


We fancy:

A solid 3-1 home win is at 14/1 and is the bet that is likely to be safest and get you the most back.


It’s a long shot, but:

The last time Sheff Wed beat Bristol City, the score was 3-2 and a repeat of that victory is at 50/1, so it’s quite unlikely that we will see that happen again.
