Birmingham vs Blackpool: Top Free Betting Tips

Following a crucial victory over Millwall, Birmingham City will be motivated to retain their form when they see the lower-ranked Blackpool next. The Seasiders will be travelling to St. Andrew’s on Saturday, 22 April. Blackpool comes into this game after losing three points against West Bromwich in EFL Championship.

Match Result Prediction: Birmingham to Win

Birmingham City has a combination of two wins, two draws and a defeat in the previous five league affairs. But the team have gone undefeated in the last three games at St. Andrew’s and won two of them. On the other hand, Blackpool has been dismal away from Bloomfield Road and lost in eight consecutive fixtures on the road. The Blues are also without a defeat in the last seven home games against the Seasiders and won four of them. Given these stats, we can predict Birmingham to have the upper hand in this fixture.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

All of the previous four meetings between these teams at St. Andrew’s have gone Under 2.5 Goals. Birmingham City has found the back of the net only four times in the last five league outings. Blackpool has also struggled and scored only three goals in the same number of away adventures. Moreover, Birmingham has also claimed four clean sheets in the previous six games in EFL Championship. Hence, a total of Under 2.5 Goals seem the most probable result for this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-0 to Birmingham

Birmingham City has not conceded a single goal in the last three games in front of the home crowd. The Blues have also kept two consecutive clean sheets in the previous two H2Hs against Blackpool at St Andrew’s. On the scoring end, City scored only once per game in both of those matches. Birmingham has also been unable to rattle the net more than once in any of the last seven league games. Following these stats, we predict the Blues to earn a narrow lead of 1-0 in this encounter.

Birmingham vs Blackpool: Form, Recent Games, and News

Birmingham Preview

The Blues ended their three-match winless streak against promotion-chasing Millwall playing away at The Den. Lukas Jutkiewicz’s goal in the 28th minute was enough to put Birmingham in front and take three points with a narrow 0-1 margin. With a healthy roster, head coach John Eustace will be determined to carry on the team’s current form.

Players to Watch: Krystian Bielik (Birmingham)

Birmingham are a very tough team and they get booked a lot. We definitely think that this is one of the best teams to look for yellow cards. Krystian Bielik has been their most-booked player this season with the greatest card/game ratio – he has received 12 yellows in 32 matches this season.

Blackpool Preview

After only one victory, the Seasiders got back to their losing streak against West Bromwich with a 0-2 defeat. Brandon Thomas-Asante and Gardner-Hickman notched goals for the Baggies in each half to grant the team a commanding edge. The absence of Tom Trybull and Keshi Anderson has put a dent in Blackpool’s preparation for this game.

Players to Watch: Callum Connolly (Blackpool)

Blackpool will have a tough match here and they need to do their best to win it. They are a very aggressive side that is not affraid to get booked. One player, in particular, has been extremely effective in his defense – Callum Connolly. The defender has received 11 yellow cards and one red card in 39 games. With two important defenders out of this match, he will have a lot of work.
