Luton are still on a big search for some consistency in the league. There was a defeat for them on Boxing Day.

So they will be looking to pick themselves up from that as they host Bristol City on Tuesday.

The Robins managed to snap their losing streak on Boxing Day by beating bottom side Wycombe. Can they follow up at Kenilworth Road?

Luton Preview – Can Luton deliver three points at home?

Luton aren’t having a bad season at Kenilworth Road at all. Their form there this season is W4 D4 L2.

They are undefeated in their last five league home fixtures with a W2 D3 record in that sequence.

Overall home and away they haven’t been doing too badly defensively either in league action.

Luton have earned three clean sheets in their last five league games.

The Hatters are 5/4 to get the win on the board on Tuesday night* (odds recorded 2016 GMT Monday, 28th December).

Three of the four home wins that Luton have recorded this season have been by at least a two-goal margin.

But less than half of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals for this campaign.

Given that Bristol City are arriving in some slightly dodgy form, then this could be a low scoring fixture.

Under 2.5 goals is at 8/13 odds to happen* (odds recorded 2016 GMT Monday, 28th December).

Another trend that may be worth considering for football betting is expecting Luton not to be trailing at the break.

They have been W4 L5 L1 at the half time break from their home fixtures.

Our betting prediction:
Luton 1 goal winning margin

(odds taken 2016 GMT Monday, 28th December)


Luton do have a home from going over Bristol City. In last season’s corresponding fixture they earned a 3-0 win over the Robins.

That’s a four-match winning home streak that they have going against them in all competitions, which is pretty strong.

If they could scrape out a win in this one they could close the gap on Bristol City to three points.

As it stands, Luton are the lowest-scoring team in the top-fifteen on this season’s Championship table.


Bristol City Preview – Can the Robins build?

After such a bright start to the season, there have been struggles for Bristol City really since the end of November.

They are W3 L5 in their last eight games now. On Boxing Day they earned a 2-01 home victory over bottom side Wycombe.

That saw Bristol City avoid falling to four straight defeats.

In their last six games, they have managed to score in just two of the fixtures.

There is a current quote of 23/10 on them in the match outright to pick up all three points on offer* (odds recorded 2016 GMT Monday, 28th December).

They have suffered back to back away defeats against Rotherham and Preston without having scored.

It’s been three losses in their last four away games (L1) so the Robins are on a bit of shaky ground at the moment.

The overall away record that they have managed is W5 D1 L4 for this campaign.

Bristol City have both scored and conceded 12 goals this season in the Championship on the road.

Bristol City have claimed 8 of their 10 league victories in this campaign by a one-goal margin only.

There are only five teams currently in the Championship with a better away record than Bristol City’s for the season.

The Robins have played a game fewer on the road than any of those five as well.

So they do have their merits even though their current form isn’t great. There has been no clean sheet for Bristol City in their last four away games.

We see this being a tight clash.

This isn’t the easiest of matches to make a call on for Tuesday. But we just see enough to push for the home win.

The Luton 5/4 outright win is our selection, therefore,* (odds recorded 2016 GMT Monday, 28th December).
