Friday evening, Birmingham receives WBA’s visit to “St. Andrews “, as the hosts are among the favorites to relegate! The WBA hopes to return to the league at the end of this season, but will not have a easy move to Birmingham, especially as “The Baggies” have received a goal in each of the last 4 official matches played in the field.
Birminghma has no win in the first 6 stages and has the worst balance in the second league since 2004. WBA has two victories on Birmingham’s field in official matches and is looking for a third in a duel in which the goals have not been missed in the last few years: the “Both Mark” bet has been the winner in each of the last 5 games! In fact, Birmingham scored at least one goal in each of the last seven games with West Brom and the advantage of his own court might play an important role in the Friday night’s duel.
West Bromwich Albion looks pretty good in attack, where he relies on Phillips and Gayle, and this is seen in statistics. White-blue scored in 4 of the previous 5 stages, but Birmingham is pretty skimpy with the show: 5 of the previous 6 stages scored less than 3 goals in their games. Looking at the balance of direct duels we see that the balance prevails, even if the WBA has been superior in recent years. Friday guests had 58 successes in the 129 direct parties so far.
Birmingham has 4 draws in the first 6 stages.
There are no bothering problems in the two camps and Birmingham needs to find a solution to end in situations because relegation is already threatening. Birmingham was ranked 20th, with the second weakest attack in the league (4-6 goals) and four draws in the league. Only Ipswich and Reading are victorious this season of Championship! The WBA is ranked 9th with 10 points (15-9 goals), but has only four points to be recovered to the top of the leaderboard. This Midlands derby has its favorite WBA at a fairly good level, but we must not neglect the chances of hosts that are hard to beat on the ground.
The last 4 straight games brought 3 wins for the WBA (2-1 and 3-1 away, 3-1 home) and a draw (1-1), and Stoke (2-1) and Mansfield (2 -1) encourages bettors to place their money on guests. Birmingham comes after a 0-0 with Swansea, a 0-1 with Bolton and draws 2-2 with Nottingham and 0-0 with QPR. We bet on a balanced match in which West Bromwich’s top value might not be enough to win.
PREDICTION: Both teams to score / YES @ 1.88
