BIRMINGHAM CITY vs Nottingham Forest: Best Bets

Blues – 5/4

Draw – 41/20

Nottingham Forest – 49/20

Birmingham showed plenty of courage and resilience in the 3-3 draw at Swansea City earlier this week, playing the entire second half with 10 men after Kristian Pederson’s red card.

The Blues, now up to 12th in the Championship table, will look to claim three points at home to Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon.

Garry Monk’s side are priced at 5/4 with 888sport to emerge victorious at St Andrew’s this weekend – punters will fancy the Blues to snatch a win after Tuesday’s performance.

With a bit of luck, a first home win since Boxing Day could be on the cards…

Che Adams has scored in each of his last four Championship fixtures and 888sport football betting odds have the Blues star at 19/10 to get his name on the scoresheet this weekend.

One of the most prolific frontmen in the division, Adams could be Birmingham’s difference maker once again.

Meanwhile, Nottingham Forest have gone through a difficult spell in recent weeks.

Martin O’Neill’s side had lost three matches in a row before last week’s 3-1 victory over Wigan Athletic – visiting fans may fancy the 49/20 for a Forest win. A win could see O’Neill’s men climb up to seventh in the table.

Birmingham fans, 888sport are going 7/2 for Adams to score in a home win this weekend.

With 15 goals in all competitions already this season, the 22-year-old will be looking to extend his fine run of form when Forest visit St Andrew’s on Saturday afternoon. Adams can inspire Birmingham to a huge win.

Both teams to score looks like an absolute shoo-in this weekend. Forest fought back from two goals down to salvage a draw back in August but Birmingham are much stronger now.

Our bet of the day is priced at 17/20 but Blues fans may prefer the 4/1 for both teams to score with Birmingham coming out on top.

Prediction: Birmingham 2-1 Forest (8/1)

Bet of the day: Both teams to score (17/20)

Outside punt: Birmingham to win and both teams to score (4/1)

Enhanced wincast: Che Adam to score and Birmingham to win (7/2)
