Betting Tips for the game

Bolton registered a narrow 1-0 win over Reading to make it back-to-back away wins. The club’s only match at the Macron Stadium ended as a 2-2 draw.

Birmingham City remain without a victory but they did come very close to getting the first win of the season during the weekend. Despite a lot of chances, Birmingham were only able to get a goalless draw with Swansea.

The recent game between the blues and Bolton finished as a 1-0 win for the former at the Macron Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a win for Birmingham.

Match odds

Bolton are at odds of 2.87 for a victory in the game. However, it is difficult to choose a home win for a club that has struggled to get results at the Macron Stadium. Birmingham were able to produce an impeccable performance in the recent game against Swansea. The team will take a lot of confidence from the performance – even if the match finished as a goalless draw. Furthermore, Birmingham have had the better of Bolton in recent seasons with four wins in five meetings. Our preview would back a win for Birmingham.

Bolton vs Birmingham City draw odds: 3.10

Bolton win odds: 2.87

Correct Score odds

This is a fixture that has been a nightmare for Bolton in terms of scoring goals. Bolton’s last goal against Birmingham came back in 2014. Since then, they have failed to score in five consecutive meetings against this club. Even though Birmingham are the lowest scorers among the two coming into this match, they had so much opportunities against Swansea that it is difficult to see anything other than a Birmingham 1-0 victory, according to our correct score prediction.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds

The last game between these two clubs to experience more than 2.5 goals occurred in May 2014. Since then, there have been low scoring matches with this upcoming game set to join them – as both teams are quite poor going forward. Our total goals prediction would choose under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds

Jutkiewicz had three shots on target in the match against Swansea and the 29-year-old was able to score in his only Championship game against Bolton in the recent meeting back in April. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Jutkiewicz.
