Birmingham City vs West Bromwich Albion Betting Tips – EFL Championship, 14th December 12.30pm

Midlands rivals Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion square off at St Andrew’s in the EFL Championship in Saturday’s early kick off. After gifting Leeds United top spot in midweek, Albion will want to move back to the summit before Leeds entertain Cardiff City on Saturday afternoon. The hosts are unpredictable under Pep Clotet, but Slaven Bilic’s Baggies will be eyeing up a win at St Andrew’s.

Birmingham City News and Form – Can the Blues pick up a surprise victory on home turf?

Pep Clotet’s men head into this weekend’s clash having picked up just one win from their last seven league games. After an impressive victory at Reading last Saturday, the Blues will have been very disappointed with Wednesday night’s 2-0 home loss to Queens Park Rangers.

Birmingham secured three home victories in a row back in October, beating Middlesbrough, Blackburn Rovers and Luton Town (all by one goal). Since then, though, City have taken just one point from a possible nine at St Andrew’s, losing to Fulham and QPR and drawing with Millwall.

Birmingham find themselves languishing in 15th place with almost half of the season now gone. Overall, Clotet’s boys have won eight, lost nine and drawn four of 21. With the odds stacked against them, can City upset their Midlands rivals at the weekend?

West Bromwich Albion News and Form – Will the league’s best away side win on the road again?

Slaven Bilic’s West Bromwich Albion were held to a 1-1 draw by lowly Wigan Athletic on Wednesday. A Sam Johnstone own goal gave the Latics a surprise lead, but Charlie Austin levelled things up just nine minutes later.

Birmingham City vs West Bromwich Albion Predictions

West Bromwich Albion win: The Baggies were left disappointed with the midweek draw at Wigan. Albion were the strong favourites heading in, but they were far from their best at the DW Stadium. However, as we approach the busy festive period, with games coming thick and fast, West Brom don’t have to wait long to put things right.

Birmingham are arguably one of the most unpredictable teams in the Championship this season. The Blues have a number of top-quality players, but they do struggle for consistency.

West Brom have looked the real deal at times this season, and I fancy the visitors to claim a comfortable win at St Andrew’s on Saturday. Albion are available at 21/10 to win -1. Also, have a punt on the away team to win both halves at 9/2.
