Birmingham picked up a win on the weekend which increased their cushion to the relegation zone.

But the Blues are not out of the woods yet and make a tricky trip to face Huddersfield on Tuesday night in Championship action.

Huddersfield are only two points ahead of the Blues and out of form.

So they badly need a victory themselves to ease any suggestion of relegation issues.

Huddersfield Preview – Can the Terriers take the points at home?

There hasn’t been a lot of cheer for Huddersfield recently in the Championship.

It was a 3-0 loss that they suffered on the weekend away at Preston, leaving them on back to back losses.

It has been four defeats for Huddersfield in their last five league efforts now (W1).

But they claimed a good home win over Swansea in their last home fixture moving them on to a W8 D2 L6 record this season on home turf.

In the match tonight for Championship betting on Tuesday night, the win for Huddersfield is at 7/5* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).

Huddersfield’s home win over Swansea on February 20th snapped a run of four without a success on home turf.

Their positive form at home has largely been against teams currently sitting 14th or lower in the division.

From such fixtures, Huddersfield are W5 D1 L1 this season.

Four of the five wins for them in that sequence of games were earned with a clean sheet.

Huddersfield to win to nil is at a quote of 13/8* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).

This would be an important three points for Huddersfield as it would open up a gap of five points to Birmingham and therefore well towards safety.

Our betting prediction:
Under 1.5 goals

(odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021)


Huddersfield did suffer a 2-1 loss at St Andrew’s when they met Birmingham earlier this season.

So they will be looking to balance that out.

The Terriers have been leading at the half time break in exactly half of their home fixtures this season.

They have produced 62% of their home goals in the first period of fixtures this season.

On the flip side of that, only 35% of their home goals conceded have been in the first half.

Each of the last four games between these two at Huddersfield have ended in a 1-1 draw.


Birmingham Preview – Can the Blues find a precious away win

Birmingham are right above the drop zone in the Championship, but as it stands they have a five-point cushion.

So three points out of this would be a huge step towards survival.

That’s because Rotherham, who are directly behind them, do have a couple of games in hand still on them.

So there is still pressure on the Blues, especially with four defeats in their last six league games.

In the match outright for Championship football betting, the victory for Birmingham is at 11/5* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).

It has been a W5 D7 L4 record that the Blues have taken on their travels in the second tier this season.

They claimed a narrow 1-0 away win over the relegation-threatened Sheffield Wednesday in their last road game.

Birmingham are undefeated in their away games against teams currently in the bottom half of the table (W2 D5).

There has been a lack of goal scoring by Birmingham this season, not just away from home, but overall.

The Blues are averaging 0.8 goals on their travels this season.

But they have been tight at the back, as they have conceded at that same average rate as well.

So this does have the look of being a low-scoring fixture.

Under 1.5 goals looks a decent proposition for the fixture at 13/8* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).

Three of the four away defeats that Birmingham have suffered have been by a one-goal margin only.

The trend with them at half time has been a draw, as they have been level at the break in 13 of 16 away games.

The half time draw is at 20/21* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).

As things stand in the Championship, only two teams have scored fewer goals than Birmingham have done.

But they have pretty much been surviving because of their away form.


Huddersfield vs Birmingham Betting Advice

This has a draw written all over it really as neither team has a great deal of form and it’s certainly not one that either would want to lose.

So we see a stalemate heading our way and the Draw in the match outright at 21/10 takes it for us* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).

There is not going to be much separating them, largely because Birmingham have been defensively sound on the road.


Key Facts – Huddersfield vs Birmingham Betting Tip

  • Huddersfield have lost four of their last five league games
  • Huddersfield have drawn their last four home games against the Blues 1-1
  • Birmingham have conceded an average of just 0.8 goals per away game


But by the same token, it doesn’t look as if they pack enough of a punch going forward to get the win.

Huddersfield are out of winning touch at the moment and they may struggle to break down the visitors.

The 0-0 Correct Score football betting option jumps off the page at 6/1* (odds recorded 20:37 GMT, February 28th, 2021).
