Birmingham Preview – Can the Blues make it three in a row?

Birmingham have come up with back to back league wins in the Championship.

Those were both 2-1 victories over Huddersfield and Preston putting them on a strong charge up the table.

It is an overall W2 D1 L1 record at St Andrews this season from Birmingham. Their one loss in that sequence was interesting.

That is because it was against current bottom-side Sheffield Wednesday.

Birmingham have been a low-scoring side this season. They are averaging just 0.78 per game so far.

But they have been even better than that in defence.

Under 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds and that does have some appeal for Championship football betting* (odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).

The Blues are averaging a goal per game this season on home turf, taking a clean sheet in three of their four.

There is also an odds-on quote for a Birmingham win in the match outright of 7/10* (odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).

Our betting prediction:
Birmingham 1-0 correct score

(odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November)


Another trend with Birmingham’s results this season is that all three of their wins have been by a 1 goal margin.

In seven of their nine league fixtures this season, Birmingham have been level at the halftime break in a game.

All three of the goals that they have conceded have come against them in the second half of their home fixtures.

Only four teams currently in the Championship have a better defensive record than that of the Blues.


Wycombe Preview – Can the Chairboys claim a valuable three points?

Wycome collected a win for the first time this season on the weekend.

That came with a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday, who are the only team beneath them in the table.

The Owls are only beneath them because of having been slapped with a 12-point dedication at the start of the season.

Wycombe are on a W1 D1 L7 record for this campaign and will just have been relieved to get that first win.

They have been struggling badly in defence in this campaign. The Chairboys have shipped 16 goals in their 9 fixtures.

It is a quote of 17/4 on them in the match outright for Wednesday night’s trip to St Andrews* (odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).

This will only be the third game between Brimgham and Wycome in the league. Their previous meetings were in the 1994/95 Division 2.

The most recent meeting that the two had was in a Carling Cup clash in 2008, Birmingham taking a 4-0 win in that.

In the overall head to head Wycombe are W1 D0 L4 against Birmingham.

It has been four losses in four away games for the Chairboys this season in the Championship.

In those games they have come up with just one goal in total. It could be another long night for them on their travels.


Birmingham vs Wycombe Betting Advice

We see the home win coming in this one, even though Birmingham are not red-hot in front of goal.

They should have the tools to unpick the challenge of Wycombe on the night. We see this being a low-scoring fixture.

Birmingham to win and under 2.5 goals is 5/2* (odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).


Key Facts – Birmingham vs Wycombe Betting Tip

  • Birmingham have conceded just 6 goal in 9 games
  • Birmingham have won their last two league fixtures
  • Wycombe have lost all four away games this season


Wycombe getting that first win against a Sheffield Wednesday side who are well out of sorts at the moment, proves nothing.

It’s been an average of more than two goals per game against them on the road that Wycombe have taken.

It’s hard to throw support at them. A Birmingham 1-0 correct score is worth a look at 5/1* (odds taken 1722 GMT, Monday, 2nd November).
