Our correct score prediction fancies a 1-1 draw.
Wigan Athletic FC vs Birmingham City FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Wigan have a strong defensive record in their home patch this term and six of their 11 matches in the stadium have produced two or less goals. Birmingham’s previous trip to Wigan witnessed the same outcome with 1-1 being the final score. Our total goals prediction would go for less than 2.5 goals.
Wigan Athletic FC vs Birmingham City FC – First Goalscorer odds
Che Adams has been Birmingham’s in-form marksman since November and he has contributed five goals in the past six matches. The 22-year-old has bagged the first goal on just one occasion but he stands a good chance of replicating the feat with 75 percent of his scoring attempts being on target this term. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Adams.
