Leeds United vs Birmingham City top free betting tips

Despite challenging for the automatic promotion spots for most of the season, Leeds United, at the time of writing, find themselves in fourth position with nine points separating Leeds and second-placed Ipswich Town. Leeds have lost three of their previous five matches despite winning six of seven previous to that. This match they come up against a massively out-of-form Birmingham side who have won just twice in fourteen matches. Wayne Rooney will be desperate to earn a victory against Leeds United, especially with his Manchester United links.

Correct outcome prediction: Leeds United to Win

This match should be a comfortable victory for Leeds United. Despite winning just once in their previous five matches, a meeting against Birmingham City who has won twice in their previous fourteen matches should be the perfect chance for Leeds to restart their hunt for the automatic promotion spots. The likes of Rutter, Summerville and James should be way too much for a shaky Birmingham defence to handle.

Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 Goals

The way Leeds United play they are always going to concede plenty of chances but also create a lot as well. Only Leicester, Ipswich and Southampton have scored more times than Leeds have and only Leicester and Middlesbrough have created more big chances than Leeds have. They have shown this season just how many chances they can create due to the pace of their attacks and against a slow Birmingham side, they should be able to create plenty of chances.

Correct score prediction: 3-1 to Leeds United

Despite Birmingham's awful form, they are still capable of scoring goals which they have shown in recent weeks with seven goals being scored in their previous five matches, and up against this Leeds side who concede a lot of chances, they should take one of those. On the other hand, Leeds United have one of the best attacking players in the Championship with Crysencio Summerville, his pacy and trickery will be too much for this Birmingham defence to handle.
