BIRMINGHAM CITY vs Millwall: Best Bets
BCFC – 23/20
Draw – 43/20
Millwall – 5/2
Birmingham host Millwall at St Andrew’s on Wednesday evening and this is the ideal chance for Garry Monk’s side to get back to winning ways.
The Second City derby was disappointing but focusing on the past will not help the Blues in their pursuit of a top-half finish.
23/20 for BCFC to emerge victorious could turn out to be a huge price.
The Blues secured a 2-0 win away at The Den back in November and Monk will have his side raring to go ahead of Wednesday night. Bouncing back at the first possible opportunity is essential.
Under 2.5 goals has landed in the last four meetings between Birmingham and Millwall – that makes the 16/25 for another low-scoring contest very appealing indeed.
It wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see a nervy affair under the St Andrew’s floodlights.
Having said that, the 11/8 for over 1.5 home goals is a decent price. The Blues were able to create goal-scoring chances at will against Aston Villa but just couldn’t convert.
Better luck on the finishing front could see Birmingham notch a couple of goals on Wednesday.
Millwall have scored in each of their last four league games BUT the Lions have also lost all four of those games.
The 4/9 for over 0.5 away goals isn’t the best price in the world but it could be worth taking if you fancy an entertaining, open contest.
Birmingham are well placed to claim three points in front of an expectant St Andrew’s.
The Blues will want to put in a good performance for fans after a difficult week and Monk will be determined to lead his troops to victory. Watch this space, BCFC will be tough to stop.
23/20 for Birmingham to win is a good price and fans will be hoping for an early goal to settle the nerves.
A close contest looks likely once again – five of BCFC’s last six games have been level or settled by a goal either way.
Prediction: Birmingham 2-0 Millwall (17/2)
Bet of the day: Birmingham to win (23/20)
Outside punt: Birmingham to win to nil (49/20)
