We track down the best betting odds and provide the top tips.

Coventry City Preview – Can the Sky Blues move into round two?

Mark Robins’ Coventry City have played just one game this season, as last weekend’s matchup with Rotherham was postponed. Due to the Coventry Building Society Arena’s pitch being unsafe to play on, this cup tie will be held at Burton’s Pirelli Stadium. Therefore, the Sky Blues have effectively lost home advantage.

Coventry kicked off their Championship season with a decent draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light. The newly promoted Black Cats took an early lead, but City hung in there and found a late equaliser through Viktor Gyokeres.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

Can Coventry beat the fellow Championship club in the cup before this weekend’s tough-looking trip to The Den to face Millwall? The Sky Blues are priced at evens to prevail in normal time.

Bristol City Preview – Can the Robins bounce back?

Bristol City are arguably one of the most unpredictable teams in the Championship these days. Under Nigel Pearson last term, the Robins finished down in 17th, collecting just 55 points from 46 league games.

Bristol City have made a slow start to this season, losing both matches thus far. They let a lead slip to lose 2-1 at Hull City in game one. The Bristol club were then beaten by Sunderland in a five-goal thriller at Ashton Gate last weekend.
