Birmingham vs Blackburn Match Preview
Birmingham were last in action on 12th January where they suffered a disappointing 1-0 home loss to struggling Bolton. It put to an end a three-game unbeaten run and they sit in ninth seven points off Bristol City in sixth and having played a game more.
At St Andrew’s, the Blues have won just one of their last four and just six of 16 for the whole season. Just one of their last six at their own place has gone over 2.5 goals with three of these going under 1.5.
Blackburn have lost five straight in the Championship shipping nine times and netting just four. It means they have slid down to 14th with the play-offs beyond them this season though they should have few relegation issues.
Away from Ewood Park, Rovers are struggling losing four of their last five and winning just one of their last ten. They have the second worst road defence in the division (just behind Ipswich) shipping 33 goals.
It is hard to argue with the prices on offer which have City favourites because of home advantage. It is hard though to side with the hosts who have won just six of 16 this season while the visitors poor form makes them unbackable also.
Ten of the 16 played at this ground this season have been level going into the break and this looks the bet. As does backing the second-half to be the 45 minutes that has the most goals with both teams netting over 60% after the break.
