Birmingham City vs Cardiff City FC – Match odds

Birmingham are 12/5 for a win, but we do no fancy their chances against an in-form Cardiff side. Birmingham secured a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in their last home outing, but it was just their first victory in four attempts at St. Andrew’s. Cardiff, though, have won three of their five games on their travels, and they will fancy to secure three points against the West Midlands club. Our preview is confident of a Cardiff victory and it is priced at 5/4 with William Hill.

Their head-to-head record against Cardiff is similar with their last five meetings involving two or less goals. Over the past decade, only one league outing between the two has produced three goals, which suggests that it will be a close contest.  Our total goals prediction is to go with under 2.5 goals at 3/4 with Betfred.

Birmingham City vs Cardiff City FC – First Goalscorer odds

Kenneth Zohore has been in decent form this term with three goals in 11 appearances. The Denmark international has been ever-present in the Championship, and Warnock will back him to lead the line. The 23-year-old has not found the scoresheet in his previous three meetings against Birmingham, but could take advantage of Birmingham’s poor form. Our first goal scorer prediction is to go with Zohore at 9/2 with William Hill.
