Birmingham City can continue their winning streak when Bolton Wanderers make the trip to St Andrew’s on Tuesday night. Birmingham have secured back-to-back league triumphs since the start of the month and this sees them within playoff contention with a four-point deficit to the top six. Bolton, however, are winless since Boxing Day and they are facing the genuine prospect of relegation with four points splitting them from safety. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Bolton are priced at 8.00 for an away triumph but this outcome seems improbable given their dreaded form on their travels. Phil Parkinson’s side are on a six-match losing run on the road and this should play into the hands of Birmingham, who have the scoring prowess upfront to make the difference. Our preview would back a Birmingham win.

Bolton Wanderers vs Birmingham City draw odds: 4.00
Correct Score odds
Birmingham have excelled in the scoring department as the season has progressed and they have netted 11 goals in the past five matches compared to Bolton’s three. They should outclass the visitors with their scoring prowess, but this may be boosted with a shutout, which has been the case in three of their previous four games at St Andrew’s Stadium. Our correct score prediction is to go with a Birmingham 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Birmingham have recently played out low-scoring matches at St Andrew’s Stadium and just one of their previous five matches has produced more than two goals. This trend may continue against Bolton, as each of the past seven meetings have witnessed a single goal. Our total goals prediction would back less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Che Adams has been in sublime form for Birmingham and he has netted seven times in the past five matches without drawing a blank. In this period, he has scored the opening goal on just one occasion but his chances of doing so remain high, as he has been recently entrusted with the penalty-taking duties as well. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Che Adams.
