Blues 29/20

Bristol City 15/8

Draw 11/5

Red hot Che Adams is 6/1 to follow up his sensational midweek hat-trick by bagging the opener for Blues against Bristol City.

Adams, who famously scored the winner against City to ensure Blues’ safety on the final day of last season, put Crawley to the sword with a finishing masterclass in the cup and will be hoping to continue in the same vein against a City side who haven’t beaten Blues since 1993.

In fact, the visitors have managed just three points in their last 13 encounters with Harry Redknapp’s men, reason enough to lump on the home side at what could look like a very big 29/20 come 5pm.

And while a home win is unlikely to see a repeat of ‘Arry’s touchline jig of joy the last time these two met, he’ll surely be relieved to get off the mark in his promotion push, for which Blues are 11/1.

Despite City’s poor recent record against the hosts, they have started the season in fine form with wins against Plymouth and Barnsley so it could be a tight affair, with 2-1 making some appeal at 17/2.

Both teams scoring in a home win looks tempting at 19/5, while a draw at half-time and a home win at full-time looks another good wager at 5/1.

Prediction: 2-1 Blues 17/2

Bet of the day: Adams to score first 6/1

Enhanced Wincast: Adams to score anytime in a Blues win 5/1 from 4/1!
