Leicester City vs Birmingham City top free betting tips

Our Leicester City vs Birmingham City predictions are below. Despite this being a one-off match in the FA Cup, Leicester are still strong favourites to beat Birmingham. 

Leicester are without a win in their previous two matches having lost 3-1 to Coventry City before a 1-1 draw last time out against Ipswich Town, but previous to that, the Foxes had won nine of their eleven matches, drawing the other two. Birmingham, since sacking Wayne Rooney, has looked much better and is four matches unbeaten, including two wins in a row against Hull City and Stoke City.
