Birmingham City Preview – Can the Blues pick up a positive result on home soil?

John Eustace had made a steady start to life at Birmingham City. The Blues have been tipped for another season of struggle, but City have kicked off their 2022-23 Championship campaign with four points from three games.

After a good 0-0 draw with Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on matchday one, Birmingham beat Huddersfield Town in game two. Last weekend, they suffered a narrow defeat at Cardiff City, but Eustace will be pleased with his side’s start.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score – No

(odds taken 1411 GMT, Monday 15 August)

Birmingham were second best at the Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday, and they will be looking for a better performance in front of their home fans in midweek. The hosts are priced at 12/5 to pick up a surprise victory at St Andrew’s.

Watford Preview – Hornets to extend unbeaten run?

Watford have made a strong start to life back in the Championship after suffering Premier League relegation last term. The Hornets are joint second after two wins and a draw from their opening three league matches.

On the opening weekend of the campaign, Watford edged past fellow promotion hopefuls Sheffield United at Vicarage Road. They were lucky to leave The Hawthorns with a point in game two, with the match with West Bromwich Albion ending in a 1-1 draw. The Hertfordshire club returned to winning ways last Friday, beating Vincent Kompany’s Burnley 1-0 at Vicarage Road.

Birmingham City vs Watford Betting Advice

On their way to promotion from the Championship in the 2020-21 season, Watford beat Birmingham home and away. Troy Deeney, now a Blues player, scored the only goal of the game in the meeting at St Andrew’s in December 2020. Goals from Ken Sema, Nathaniel Chalobah and Andre Gray gave the Hornets an easy 3-0 home success in March 2021.

Watford have won the last three meetings without conceding a single goal. Birmingham’s 2-1 home triumph in November 2014 is their only victory in eight against the Hornets.


Key Facts – Birmingham City vs Watford Betting Tip

  • Birmingham suffered their first league loss of the campaign last time out
  • Watford are unbeaten so far
  • The Hornets have won seven of the past eight meetings


Birmingham would love to bounce back from defeat with a positive result on Tuesday, but we fancy in-form Watford to keep up their unbeaten start with another three points.

The Hornets have conceded just one goal in three games, and there is good value in 5/2 for Watford to win to nil again. Also, you can get the top odds of 6/1 for Edwards’ boys to win 1-0 for a third time.
