Birmingham v West Brom Betting Odds*
West Brom 6/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.)
Birmingham News and Form
The Blues are in some early troubles as they have yet to win a league game, collecting only four points for the term. They have drawn all three of their home games played this season in the second tier and because of that there is big appeal on the draw in the match outright at 9/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). The last two home games that the Blues have played have both ended in 0-0 draws against Swansea and then QPR. Once again Birmingham are struggling badly in front of goal.
The Blues have failed to score in four of their last five league games and so under 2.5 goals at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.) will also be a decent Birminghamv West Brom betting tip. Another decent trend that can be considered for the game is the Birmingham Draw/Draw half time/full time as that has been the case for them in each of their three Championship home games this season. This is such a big local derby for Birmingham given their struggles on and off the pitch.
West Brom News and Form
West Brom suffered a defeat against the tough Middlesbrough side at the end of August but snapped back to winning ways immediately. The Baggies beat out Stoke to make it W3 L1 for them in their last four fixtures. The Baggies have actually scored thirteen goals in their last four games now but we can only see this being a tight one for them in a local derby. West Brom are taking on a side struggling for goals and both teams not to score is at 5/6 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.) and could be worth a flutter.
Just a third of their away games this season have gone above 2.5 goals. The Baggies have scored at least two goals in each of their last three games against Birmingham in all competitions and if you push that over to the correct score market for Birmingham v West Brom betting tips then a solid West Brom 2-0 option is at 9/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). Coming back from the international break the Baggies have a full strength squad to pick from but will likely go unchanged from their win over Stoke.
Birmingham v West Brom Head to Head
West Brom are W3 D2 L1 in their last six games against the Blues and actually, each of the last three meetings have ended in a 3-1 win for the Baggies. So that is a good trend going on there and they are unbeaten in their last three trips to St Andrews, collecting two wins in that sequence. Both teams have scored in five of the last six meetings.
Who will win – Birmingham v West Brom Predictions
We are going for the draw in our Birmingham v West Brom betting tips. The Blues have been hard to knock down on home soil and the Baggies haven’t exactly been in terrific form out on the road. We can see a close, tight duel happening and a share of the spoils going down.
