Reason For Fulham vs Bristol City Betting Tips

  • Fulham are finally looking like title contenders
  • Mitrovic has hit 15 goals in 18 league games for Fulham.
  • Fulham have hit 2 goals per game at home this term.
  • The Cottagers have scored twice in 5 of their last 6 at home.

Cottage Contenders

Fulham are in fine form, finally looking like the side they were tipped to be in preseason. The hosts were picked out as contenders to win the title, but early on they did struggle. Things are different now, as Fulham have won each of their last four league games, one more victory than they had picked up in their previous 11 Championship games (W3 D5 L3).

Now the Cottagers are hoping that form will sustain in this meeting with a Bristol City side who are only two points behind them in the table. Who will edge this meeting between two promotion chasers?

The Mitrovic Factor

Both sides are making strong cases for promotion, but the advantage for the hosts is the presence of the division’s finest forward. Aleksandar Mitrovic has proven himself yet again at this level, kicking off the campaign with 15 goals in only 18 league appearances. He’s scoring at a better rate than his blistering switch to the second-tier in 2018.

He’s been getting a lot of service in the box, which has sent him top of the scoring charts. The Serbian has scored in each of his last five appearances for club and country, hitting seven goals in that time. After a vital brace last weekend, we think it’s worth backing Mitrovic to find the net on Saturday.

Fulham Firing

The Robins may be fifth, but they aren’t the most consistent Championship force. Bristol City are looking to secure back-to-back Championship victories for the first time since August, following their 5-2 victory against Huddersfield last time out. They’re a little too open for their own good, which could cost them here. It’s likely to play into the hands of a forward like Mitrovic.

Fulham have had 92 build-up attacks (open play sequences that contain 10+ passes and either ends in a shot or has at least one touch in the box) in the Championship this season – 48 more than any other team. They’re playing adventurous, pass and move football to create chances. It’s certainly working, as they’re hitting over 15 shots per game. That’s brought 20 goals in 10 home matches, form we expect to continue. Having scored twice in five of their last six at home, over 1.5 Fulham goals is our pick.

The hosts have put together a winning run ahead of a meeting with the shaky Robins. The visitors have failed to beat any of the top eight this term, losing clashes with the top two. Given Fulham’s improved form, we think they will pull off a 2-1 victory here after three wins in four at home.
