Coventry City Betting Preview

23 August 2013

North End travel 157 miles to Coventry City’s temporary home, Sixfields Stadium, on Sunday and, once again, Sky Bet have a barrage of intriguing odds to choose from.

The last time these side met the match ended in a 2-2 stalemate at Deepdale, after a 60th minute equaliser from Nicky Wroe earned Preston a valuable point.

And the bookmakers have the draw at 12/5 for this Sunday’s encounter, while PNE are 15/8 underdogs to win the game and Coventry are favourites with Sky Bet at 11/8.

After scoring his very first Preston goal in last weekend’s draw against MK Dons, Joe Garner is joint favourite, alongside Kevin Davies, to bag the Lilywhites’ first goal at 7/1.

However, Sky Blues’ Mathieu Manset, Callum Wilson and Leon Clarke are all backed to score first, ahead of the North End forwards, at 6/1.

A massive nine goals have been scored in just the last two matches between the sides and, if you’re looking to back another high scoring encounter, Sky Bet have odds of 5/1 for the game to produce over 4.5 goals.

PNE managed hit the back of the net twice in the first half of their game against the Dons, and they are 15/2 to have scored two or more goals by half time this Sunday too.

Bailey Wright rattled the crossbar with a thunderous header in North End’s last away game and, at 40/1, surely he is a good bet to get on the scoresheet first at Sixfields – especially due to his ever-growing involvement in attacking set-pieces.
