Bradford City v Coventry City Preview, League One, Sunday 17th November 2013

It has been a difficult couple of months for manager Phil Parkinson and his side which has seen them lose three of their last five games played and as a result of those poor performances Bradford City have began to tumble down the league one table and although they did manage to pick up a point away from home to Crewe Alexandra in their last game they face another tough task on sunday afternoon when playing host to an in form Coventry City side.

The visitors come into this game having been in fine form of late which has seen Steven Pressley’s side win their last four games on the bounce and the players confidence will no doubt be at an all time high for this one and with the prospect of overtaking Bradford City in the league table with a victory on sunday afternoon, that should be all the insentive needed for the away side to come out on top here.

Bradford City v Coventry City Match Betting Odds Market.

Bradford City have been in poor form recently and despite having home advantage and a better head to head record over their visitors the online bookmakers don’t see them winning this game on sunday afternoon and go a best price of 31/20 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers).

The Draw could be a sensible cover bet here as although Bradford City have struggled to win games recently they do have a better head to head record over Coventry City and with the goal stats suggesting only one or two goals to be scored in this game, the Draw could be good value to be on at a best price of 12/5 with Bet365 (£200 Free Bets for New Customers).

Coventry City are the clear pick to win this game based on the recent form stats which shows them having won 4 of their last 5 matches played and the bookmakers seem to agree having the visitors priced up at a best price of 15/8 with Coral (£50 Free Bets for New Customers) to continue their impressive run of form.

Bradford City v Coventry City Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Going by the recent form, Coventry City will be the clear choice by the majority to win this game and with both Leon Clarke and Callum Wilson having scored 11 times each for their club this season the away side look pretty much a certainty to get at least one during this game.

Bradford City have been struggling in the last couple of months and their poor showing against second bottom of the league table last time out Crewe Alexandra highlighted this fact as they struggled to secure a 0-0 draw and another performance like that one would surely see Coventry City win this game on sunday afternoon.

However, Bradford City do have home advantage and have only lost twice this season when playing at the Coral Windows Stadium and with the goal stats suggesting this game to be extremely tight with just one or two goals expected, it could be a sensible choice to get on the draw as your main cover bet here along with other markets like Under 2.5 Goals, Total Match Goals and Time of First Goal.
