Despite their lowly league positions, both of these sides actually come into this game in good form. Birmingham have now gone unbeaten in five matches (three draws and two wins) and Wigan have won their last two. Birmingham sit just two points ahead of Wigan in 17th place in the Championship table and there is relief all round, as both sides have secured their safety. The one remaining relegation place could be decided this weekend and Millwall play Stoke.
The spoils could well be shared in this match too, Birmingham have been drawing quite a few matches recently and Wigan have drawn three of their last six matches home and away. Their last away match was the remarkable comeback from 1-0 down with 10 men against Leeds on Good Friday. Wigan were 100/1 to win in-play but somehow managed to turn it around.
For the first of our Birmingham vs Wigan predictions on this match, we’re going for the match to end in a draw. There are stats to back this up and the best odds are currently 5/2 with Bet Victor.
For any anytime goalscorer, Birmingham’s Lucaz Jutkiewicz could be a good option. He’s scored twice in his last three matches and at odds of 8/5, is worth a second look.
There have been a lot of draws in recent matches when these two teams have played and they can both be forgiven for taking their foot off the gas slightly for the last couple of matches of the season. Birmingham won 3-1 against relegation threatened Rotherham United last time out as Gary Monk’s side continued to pick up good results.
Wigan piked up back to back victories over Easter to ensure another season of Championship football and could get another good result at St Andrew’s on Saturday afternoon. They’ve only won two matches away from home all season but manager Paul Cook will be looking to avoid defeat in this one.
The correct score prediction for our Birmingham vs Wigan betting tips is the 1-1 draw and we’re using the Bet Victor £30 sign-up bonus to bet on this tip.
