Birmingham City take on a West Brom team that has been on the cusp of a good run in recent weeks. The match at the St Andrew’s Stadium features a Birmingham team yet to get the first win of the season, while West Brom are on the cusp of the play-off places after managing a decent return of 10 points from the opening six matches. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Birmingham were able to get only a goalless draw with QPR at home just before the international break. The club has now drawn four out of their six league matches this season.
West Brom picked up a crucial 2-1 victory over Stoke City to recover from the defeat against Middlesbrough in the previous round. The Baggies have now picked up a victory in four out of the last five.
The last game between the two clubs produced a 2-1 victory for West Brom at the St Andrew’s Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for West Brom.

Birmingham City are given a price of 3.30 to win the match. Yet, our choice would not be to back the hosts, who have been winless even after several rounds into the 18-19 campaign. West Brom are on a strong surge of form and have been able to claim four wins in five. St Andrew’s Stadium has always been a tough place for visiting teams but manager Gary Monk has had little joy when it comes to a positive outcome in difficult circumstances at the club. Our preview would back a win for West Brom.

Birmingham City win odds: 3.30
Correct Score odds
The lack of any offensive threat has been the defining factor for Birmingham at the start of this 2018-19 campaign. It is quite incredible that Birmingham have been unable to score in four out of the last five games in all competitions. West Brom, meanwhile, do not have such issues and have been able to post 15 goals – the highest of any team so far in the division. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for West Brom.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been over 2.5 goals in three out of the last four league outings for West Brom. In fact, the games against Nottingham Forest and Middlesbrough are the only examples of a low scoring game involving West Brom this season, but Birmingham’s lack of offensive contribution will lower the goals. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Dwight Gayle is slowly coming good for West Brom and he was able to star as the best player on the pitch against Stoke City. The former Newcastle United forward’s quality will be key for getting West Brom back into the top flight. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Dwight Gayle.
