Stoke City 19/20

Draw 11/5

Birmingham City 3/1

Blues are 3/1 to beat Stoke City when they travel to the Potteries this Saturday afternoon.

Birmingham are unbeaten in eight matches in the Championship after a brilliant 3-1 victory over Rotherham prior to the international break.

Garry Monk’s side have been excellent on the road of late, drawing away to Brentford and winning at Leeds in their last two. A solid defence has been key for Monk this season and Blues are 13/4 to keep another clean sheet in Stoke this weekend.

Blues have scored in all of their last four matches and Stoke’s defence has been inconsistent this term, therefore the 13/5 on Blues bagging two or more is a real tempter.

After a poor start to the season, the hosts have somewhat improved of late, winning two and drawing one of their last three, but Blues can leapfrog the Potters with victory and are 6/1 to be winning at half-time and full-time.

Lukas Jutkiewicz is a good price at 5/2 to score anytime after his hat-trick last time out and 13/2 to bag anytime in a Birmingham win.

Prediction: 1-2 23/2

Bet of the day: Birmingham to win be winning at half-time and full-time 6/1

Outside punt: Lukas Jutkiewicz to score first in a Blues win 23/2
