Birmingham City look to brush aside the disappointment of points deduction even further when they take on Sheffield United at the St Andrew’s Stadium in the midweek action. Birmingham now have a serious threat of relegation with the team docked nine points and they are just five points above the bottom three with only six matches left. Sheffield United were able to rejoice after the weekend results, as the team leapfrogged Leeds United into the second spot. The Blades, though, only have a one-point advantage over Marcelo Bielsa’s team. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

The decent performance from Birmingham in the win over Leeds United came as a surprise, but it may be difficult for the Blues to replicate a similar performance against a team that enjoys better momentum than Leeds. Sheffield United have lost only once in the recent six matches. Even though the Blades have a poor head-to-head record against Birmingham with only one win in the last six meetings, our preview would go with a victory for the visitors largely due to the motivation to stay in the automatic promotion spots.

Correct Score odds
The winner against Leeds United was only the second time in which Birmingham have scored over the last five matches. The Blues are not renowned for goals even if the team has one of the league’s top scorers in the form of Che Adams. Sheffield United have had a decent return of goals with an average of 1.5 scored over the last six matches. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Sheffield United.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This match pits two teams that have a lot of strength going forward through the presence of Che Adams (Birmingham) and Billy Sharp (Sheffield United) respectively. Both players have managed 20+ league goals already this season. Both teams have a greater likelihood of scoring in the game. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Che Adams has been on the scoresheet whenever Birmingham City have scored at the St Andrew’s Stadium in this calendar year. The striker is just one goal behind Billy Sharp, who has 23 league goals so far. However, Adams is a great pick to open the scoring with 10 of his 22 goals providing the breakthrough. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Che Adams.
