Birmingham vs Bristol City betting tips and predictions for this weekend’s Sky Bet Championship fixture at St. Andrew’s. Birmingham picked up an impressive win last weekend but Bristol City were soundly beaten by Leeds.
The Blues’ win away to Brentford was one of the big surprises last weekend and now the bookies have priced Brimingham up as favourites for this match. However, before the season started they were expected to struggle in the Championship. That result last weekend will give the Birmingham fans hope for the season, however, after the strange sacking of Garry Monk at the end of last season, new man Pep Clotet has a big job on his hands.
Bristol City faced a tough opening weekend fixture against Leeds United and they lost 3-1. They also ended their pre-season badly, losing 5-0 to Crystal Palace in a result that certainly didn’t set them up for the season well. They lost center back Adam Webster to Brighton this week but former Chelsea man Tomas Kalas has arrived to replace him. This will be a big game for Bristol City so early on in the season, another loss could start some early alarm bells ringing at Ashton Gate.
Even though they lost at home to Leeds last weekend, Bristol City are fancied to win this match. I feel the bookies have priced the game wrongly just because Birmingham picked up a creditable win last weekend. At odds of 19/20 with bet365, there is every chance that Bristol City can bounce back to winning ways here against what is still quite a poor Birmingham outfit.
Adding to this, both teams to score and win tip might be a good selection to improve the odds even more of a Bristol City victory. Birmingham got a winning goal at Brentford last weekend and are capable of finding the net, whereas Bristol City conceded three against Leeds United. If Bristol City are to win this match as we predict, they might need to score a few goals to do so.
