Match Betting (1x2)

Derby County are a curious team in the Championship this season. After Frank Lampard steered the Rams to the play-off final last term, the reins were handed to Philip Cocu and the Dutchman has struggled to turn the team into promotion contenders.

Perhaps that was to be expected considering Mason Mount, Harry Wilson and Fikayo Tomori all played integral roles in last season’s campaign, although the arrival of Wayne Rooney last month has made a big difference and a recent 4-0 win over Stoke City demonstrated what this side can do.

Derby actually boast some of the best home form in the division, although they have accrued just eight points on the road and that explains why they’re ten points off the play-off spots.

A win at Ashton Gate could kickstart things and Unibet offer 13/5 about an away win for the Midlands side although it’s sure to be a tall order against a Bristol City team who have their sights set on a top six position and they’re much better off at this moment in time.

Some betting customers might really fancy the even money about the Robins becoming the latest team to beat Derby at home, although City often have a problem getting the job done and they have failed to win eight of their fourteen games at Ashton Gate.

A draw would be a lively runner and that is available at 5/2, with the visitors looking to start making themselves harder to beat on the road.

Asian Handicap

With Wayne Rooney up to full speed for Derby, it has made a big difference and a repeat of the performance that saw the Rams win 4-0 against Stoke City would mean that backers of the visitors on the Asian Handicap will enjoy a decent return.

With Bristol City trading at around even money, it means that you should be able to command odds of 10/11 about Derby winning with a +0.5 goal advantage and that means they simply need to avoid defeat to win with this bet.

However, City are in a more commanding position and some will feel as though they can put Derby to the sword, with Bristol City available to back off a mark of -1 or even -1.5 for a bigger price than the match odds.

Both Teams to Score

Derby were recently involved in a five-goal thriller at Kenilworth Road and a repeat of this game could happen if Cocu wants his Rams team to come forward and attack.

With this in mind, the “Yes” option on the Both Teams to Score market is trading at 8/11 and could be worth snapping up, while the “No” option is available at 11/10 and that could also attract some money.
