With fifth-placed Bristol City travelling to Pride Park on the back of five straight defeats in all competitions, County are taken to keep their hot streak going.
A Look At Derby County’s Betting Odds
Gary Rowett celebrated signing a lucrative new contract by watching Derby register an impressive 3-0 triumph at his former club Birmingham.
The Rams boss said: “What pleased me were the three goals, which were all different.
“We can cope with the different styles of play. When we play and get the ball down, we have enough ability to exploit spaces, as we demonstrated.”
George Thorne and Tom Huddlestone again provided composure in midfield and Rowett added: “We are playing with real control.”
With Matej Vydra leading the way up front on 15 Championship goals for the season, 11/10 for County to score more than once stands out from the Derby vs Bristol City odds.
A Look At Bristol City’s Betting Odds
Bristol City put in a brave performance when only losing 2-1 at Manchester City in their first EFL Cup clash, but that effort may have taken a toll as they went down 1-0 at home to Norwich on Saturday.
“I always feared this period of games and perhaps we are victims of our cup success,” commented head coach Lee Johnson.
“The Manchester City game in midweek took a huge amount of energy out of the players.”
However, the Robins did hit the post in the second half through Josh Brownhill, who was also denied by a magnificent Angus Gunn save during five minutes of stoppage time.
That shows they are still a threat going forward and a free week should give them some fresh zest here.
The last five encounters between these teams have produced 22 goals, so we’re adding 16/5 for a home win and both teams to score to our Derby vs Bristol City betting tips.
