Reason For Bristol City vs Luton Betting Tips

  • Luton have claimed just 29% of their points on the road this season.
  • Luton have conceded twice in each of their last 7 away trips, but Bristol City are without a clean sheet in 7.
  • The Hatters have seen over 2.5 goals in 12 of their last 13 matches.
  • The visitors have seen over 2.5 goals in 83% of their trips.

Both Sides Falling Short

Luton slipped into the bottom three on Boxing Day, as a late Fulham equaliser knocked them down a place. It was a blow to the Hatters, who put in a much-improved display in that near-victory over a promotion contender. However, they face a different kind of test this weekend as they try to fix their poor away record.

It’s been a terrible run for the hosts in recent weeks, as they’ve gone on a four-game losing run. Bristol City have lost their last two Championship games at Ashton Gate, after only losing one of their opening nine home games of the season (W4 D4). They’ll be hoping to return to that form, especially against a Luton side who are poor on the road.

Away Woes for Luton

While Luton are struggling to avoid the drop, a major part of their survival bid has been their home form. They’ve secured 71% of their points at home so far this season. However, that has obviously been due to their issues claiming points on their travels this season.

Luton have lost each of their last seven away games in the Championship, conceding 22 goals and scoring just four in return. That’s had a huge impact on them defensively, having conceded twice in each of their last seven trips.

The visitors have scored the majority of their goals at home and conceded 60% of their total away this term. That poor record has seen them lose all but two of their 12 away trips so far, with 67% of their total league defeats this season coming in away matches.

Can Robins Return to Form?

The visitors have had issues of their own, with their four-game losing streak seeing them ship eight goals in total. However, they should be confident of making an impact at the other end against the league’s worst defence. Hopes are high of a return to form for the Robins, but they have also gone seven games without a clean sheet, highlighting some issues.

Over 2.5 goals has landed in 83% of Luton’s away games so far, with just one of their last 13 seeing less than three goals. We expect another open game given the nature of this Bristol City side, so we are going with over 2.5 goals as our tip for this clash.

While the hosts have had a poor run of late, we don’t expect them to slip up to this Luton side. The visitors have been an all or nothing team on the road this term, mostly leaning towards nothing with 10 defeats and just two wins. This is a perfect chance for the Robins to return to form, so we are going with a 2-1 victory for the hosts in this clash.
