Bristol City vs Wolves: Red-hot Robins to claim FA Cup upset

Bristol City vs Wolves: Red-hot Robins to claim FA Cup upset

Kick-off: 1300, 17/02/2019

Stadium: Ashton Gate

TV: BT Sport

Bristol City will be looking to make it a perfect 10 straight wins when entertaining Wolves in the FA Cup at Ashton Gate on Sunday.

The Robins have already seen off one Premier League side in Huddersfield in this competition and should go into this clash full of confidence.

We think 17/5 for a home victory in normal time is too tempting to turn down for our initial Bristol City vs Wolves prediction.

A Look At Bristol City’s Betting Odds

City are no strangers to upsetting top-flight clubs in knockout matches, beating Watford, Crystal Palace and Manchester United in last season’s EFL Cup.

Lee Johnson looks keen to enjoy another good run in this tournament after following up a 1-0 defeat of the Terriers by getting the better of Bolton 2-1 at this venue.

Famara Diedhiou netted a stoppage-time winner from the penalty spot in Tuesday’s 2-1 Championship triumph over QPR to keep the Robins on course for a place in the play-offs.

Johnson said: “They are very proud of the winning run and will do all they can to maintain it.

“We know we are not going to win every game, but if the attitude remains the same, we will compete in all of them.

“We also want to go further in the FA Cup and if I make changes against Wolves on Sunday, I don’t think they will weaken us because our squad is so strong.”

Looking at the Bristol City vs Wolves odds, we like 21/2 for another 2-1 success here.

A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds

Wolves are also enjoying a good run of results, with Monday’s 1-1 draw against Newcastle following on from a trio of Premier League victories.

Wanderers were outstanding when beating Liverpool 2-1 in the third round of this competition, with Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves on the scoresheet.

However, they put in two lacklustre efforts when surviving a couple of scares against League One strugglers Shrewsbury.

Wolves had to come from 2-0 down to draw the initial contest at New Meadow and again trailed at Molineux before eventually prevailing 3-2.

Nuno Espirito Santo admitted he was not happy with that performance and said of visiting Ashton Gate: “It’s going to be very, very competitive. It’s going to be very, very tough.”

Wanderers will always create chances going forward, but we’re still going for a home win and both teams to score at 8/1 to complete our Wolves vs Bristol City betting tips.
