Ipswich Town vs BIRMINGHAM CITY: Best Bets

Ipswich – 5/2

Draw – 43/20

BCFC – 23/20

Birmingham will look to continue their good run of form when they visit Portman Road on Saturday afternoon.

At the time of writing, Ipswich are rooted to the bottom of the table having won just four of their 41 Championship games so far this season.

Meanwhile, Garry Monk’s side secured a 1-0 victory over high-flying Leeds United before following up that result with a 1-1 draw against Sheffield United.

The Blues are in decent form and 23/20 is an excellent price considering that run and Ipswich’s continued woes.

Che Adams was the hero in that win against Leeds and plenty of punters will fancy the BCFC star to get his name on the scoresheet this weekend.

8/5 for a player of Adams’ calibre to score in 90 minutes represents good value for Birmingham supporters.

Ipswich have conceded 67 goals so far this campaign – only two teams have conceded more goals this campaign.

With that in mind, taking the 11/8 for over 1.5 Birmingham goals this weekend is the way to go. It could be a happy journey home for the travelling fans.

As always, 888sport have a special for BCFC supporters this weekend. Adams to score in a Birmingham win is currently priced at 13/4 and punters should snap that price up ahead of Saturday’s trip to Portman Road.

If he scores, Birmingham will be confident of winning.

Ipswich’s defence is leaky and their offensive unit have struggled for large parts of 2018/19.

Only Bolton Wanderers (29) have scored fewer goals than Ipswich this season – bringing the 8/5 for Birmingham to keep a clean sheet into play.

Monk will have his side fired up for this clash and three points is all that matters. 23/20 for the Blues to emerge victorious is an excellent price and BCFC should take those odds all day long.

Watch this space, it could be an enjoyable weekend for Birmingham fans.

Prediction: Ipswich 0-2 Birmingham (8/1)

Bet of the day: Che Adams to score and Birmingham to win (13/4)

Outside punt: Birmingham to lead at half-time (37/20)
