BIRMINGHAM CITY vs Bolton Wanderers: Best Bets
BCFC – 1/2
Draw – 27/10
Bolton – 13/2
Birmingham were rampant in the first half at Loftus Road on Saturday, putting four goals past a hapless Queens Park Rangers defence.
That man Che Adams was outstanding once again, securing his second hat-trick of the 2018/19 Championship campaign.
Adams has scored 19 league goals this season and plenty of punters will expect the BCFC star to make the difference again on Tuesday night.
Bolton Wanderers are next up for Garry Monk’s side and the St Andrew’s faithful will be hoping for a third successive victory.
1/2 for Birmingham to claim three points isn’t much of a price but fans will be expecting big things ahead of Tuesday’s contest.
Only three teams have conceded more goals than Bolton so far this campaign and the Blues could put their opponents to the sword.
Monk will have his side fired up and ready to go and Birmingham could go for the jugular in the early stages.
21/20 for the Blues to take a lead into half-time is a decent price – football fans across the country will be expecting Birmingham to win quite comfortably.
23/20 for Adams to score in 90 minutes might be the price of the night.
The Blues star has scored in six Championship fixtures in a row and he is quickly maturing into one of the best players in the second tier. Back against Che Adams at your peril.
888sport Championship betting odds show Birmingham at 22/1 to secure promotion to the Premier League and Blues fans will be dreaming of a trip to Wembley.
For now, the primary focus is three points against Bolton though and Monk’s side must avoid complacency.
Birmingham have the quality to cruise to victory and the St Andrew’s support will be hoping for a positive result.
Monk will be urging his side to push on and claim three points ahead of a break this weekend – it is hard to look past BCFC in this clash.
Prediction: Birmingham 2-0 Bolton Wanderers (5/1)
Bet of the day: Che Adams to score anytime (23/20)
Outside punt: Birmingham to score in both halves (2/1)
