Coventry vs Burton Albion predictions, betting tips and match preview for this week’s Friday night League One fixture. Coventry picked up another win last time out and will want to build on that here. See our prediction and betting tips below.
Match date: Friday 8th March 2019
Kick-off time: 7.45pm
Stadium: Ricoh Arena, Coventry
The Sky Blues have been in great form of late and picked up a comfortable 3-0 win over Walsall in their last match. That backed up an impressive point gained against Luton Town and took their run to five matches unbeaten. They are now just five points outside the play-off places and another win in this Friday night clash will push them right into contention ahead of the teams around them playing on Saturday.
Burton are having a good season themselves and are just two places behind Friday’s opponents, however the gap is six points so they’re too far from the play-off places, and under no threat of relegation. The likelihood is they will have this in the back of their mind and it will be the managers job to keep the team focused going into the back end of the season. Coventry need to win this game more than Burton to so for our match prediction we’re expecting the hosts to get the three points.

It looks like Coventry be without Jordy Hiwula-Mayifuila for this match and has been in good form lately. He’s now got seven goals this season and is joint top scorer with Conor Chaplin, who hasn’t been scoring goals of late. With all that in mind we’re going to take a chance on Amadou Bakayoko starting this game and getting on the scoresheet. He scored in Coventry’s last home match against Walsall and looks a decent price to score at odds of 23/10 with Paddy Power in this one.
The last of our bets for this match is going to be a correct score tip and we’re already betting on a Coventry win, so this can be backed up with a bigger odds bet on a correct score. Coventry won their last home game 3-0 but Burton are not conceding many goals of late, despite drawing a lot. They’ve only conceded two in their last four and it could be a tight home win here, so have a bet on Coventry to win the match 1-0.
Coventry to win – 29/20 with bet365.
Amadou Bakayoko to score – 23/10 with Paddy Power.
Coventry to win 1-0 – 8/1 with bet365.
