Birmingham v Wolves Betting Preview
Venue: St Andrews
Channel: Sky Sports Main Event
Wolves travel across the West Midlands in high spirits as the Championship leaders and a team in fine form. They’ve collected 44 points out of a possible 57 in the league this season, and the majority of the teams in their impressive position right now have gone on to win automatic promotion to the premier league. Wolves don’t just collect points, both at home and away, they also produce some scintillating football at times with an ethos to attack from the defense upwards and pass the ball fluidly.
The blues on the other hand are struggling this season, with just one win in their last seven. They have seemingly seen scoring goals a huge problem, netting just two goals in their last seven games. Out of their 11 losses this season, the Blues have lost ‘To Nil’ 8 times, meaning once they go a goal behind, they seemingly struggle to get back into the game. This makes my best bet of Wolves to win and under 2.5 goals at 11/4 look tasty: Wolves have won 2-0 five times this season, which is priced at 13/2 with bet365. They have also won ‘To Nil’ 8 times this season, which is very impressive. This is priced at 7/4, but as the blues’ games don;t see many games, Wolves to win 1 or 2-0 here looks likely so under 2.5 goals and Wolves win looks the most appealing.
Birmingham are missing Vassell, Colin and Jenkinson.
Neves is suspended for Wolves.
Potential Birmingham City Starting XI: Stockdale, Nsue, Roberts, Morrison, Dean, Grounds, Kieftenbeld, Ndoye, Jota, Boga, Jukiewicz
Potential Wolves Starting XI: Ruddy, Doherty, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Douglas, N’Diaye, Saiss, Jota, Cavaleiro, Bonatini
