Birmingham City will be aiming to extend their recent winning run when they face Bristol City at St Andrew’s on Saturday afternoon. The West Midlands side are presently within four points off the playoff zone after bagging back-to-back victories. Bristol, though, are lying in the bottom half of the standings with a four-point deficit to Birmingham despite being undefeated in their previous two matches.

Betting Tips for the game
Birmingham are currently on a two-match winning run and their recent league game against Preston saw them secure a 3-0 triumph. They have won each of their previous two matches with clean sheets.
Bristol went unbeaten for the second game on the bounce but they could only muster a 1-1 draw against Millwall last weekend. Jack Cooper’s own goal handed Bristol an advantage but it was cancelled by Shaun Williams in the final quarter of the game.
Birmingham’s recent meeting against Bristol was at the Ashton Gate in April where they suffered a 3-1 defeat. The previous encounter at St Andrew’s in 2017 saw them run victors with a 2-1 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a Birmingham win.

Bristol are given odds of 3.30 for an away triumph but we are not anticipating this outcome. Bristol have witnessed scattered results on the road with just four wins from 10 matches and they are likely to face a tough ask of securing another victory at Birmingham. The hosts started the season with a sequence of stalemates in their stadium but they have gradually picked up the form with just two points dropped from their previous five matches. Our preview fancies Birmingham to continue their unbeaten home streak with another win.

Birmingham City vs Bristol City draw odds: 3.20
Bristol City win odds: 3.30
Correct Score odds
Birmingham’s home form has been splendid of late and they have netted two or more goals in each of the previous five matches with four of those resulting in wins. Bristol have managed just six goals from their last five away trips while drawing blank on two occasions. Birmingham should have the upper hand with the home advantage, while historically they have also dominated the clash with no defeats in their stadium since 1993. Our correct score prediction is to go for a Birmingham 3-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Birmingham have excelled in the scoring department of late with three or more goals in each of their previous seven matches. This has been the case in Birmingham’s previous two meetings against this weekend’s opponents. Our total goals prediction fancies more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Lukas Jutkiewicz and Che Adams have scored more than 60% of Birmingham’s goal this term and we are fancying the latter to open the scoring this weekend. The 25-year-old has netted four times since November while he has also impressed against Bristol with two goals from four meetings. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Adams.
