Stoke City vs Birmingham City top free betting tips
Our Stoke City vs Birmingham City predictions are below. Excluding an FA Cup replay victory over an inexperienced Hull City side, Birmingham have failed to win in their previous seven matches, six of those coming in the Championship. Stoke looks much better under Schumacher. Can Stoke earn another victory to make it two wins in a row?
Total goals prediction: Under 2.5 Goals
Our first Stoke City vs Birmingham City prediction is for the total number of goals in this match to be fewer than 2.5. Seven of Stoke City's previous eight Championship matches have ended with fewer than 2.5 goals scored. Two of Birmingham's previous five matches have seen 2.5 goals or less scored.
Both teams to score prediction: No
Our second Stoke City vs Birmingham City prediction is for both teams to not find the back of the net. Despite Birmingham scoring four times in their previous two matches, we can not see both sides finding the back of the net here. Since Steven Schumacher's appointment at Stoke, they have looked like a completely different side to the one under Alex Neil. The Potters have conceded just two goals in their previous five Championship matches.
Correct score prediction: 1-0 to Stoke City
As usual, we have gone with a correct score prediction for our final Stoke City vs Birmingham City prediction. We predict this match to be a very tight affair with both sides making it difficult for their opponents. We do however believe Stoke will, just about, come out of this match with all three points. Stoke won the reverse fixture by three goals to one.
How far will Birmingham's fans have to travel to Stoke?
The driving distance between Birmingham and Stoke is 56 miles. With the usual cold temperatures in the UK at this time of year, we would advise any travelling fans to wrap up warm.
