Home Birmingham City

17/03/2018 Kick Off:  3:00 pm St Andrew's V Predicted Score:1 - 3

Away Hull City

Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Nigel Adkins’s side to push on now after winning their last two games that should have given them some much-needed confidence. Hull to win by two goals has odds of 8/1, while it’s 22/1 for them to record a 3-1 win in the football score predictions betting.

2 We fancy:

Now that striker Abel Hernandez is back from injury and ready to take the field again a Score/Win double of Hernandez/Hull has odds of 7/2. Hernandez has six goals in five games this season for Hull and has three in his last two games. He is 12/1 to score two or more goals.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Birmingham have to win again at some stage and this game could be the time that they pick up three valuable points, even if the consensus among football predictions is that they’re doomed to the drop. They won the last meeting here at St. Andrews between the sides 1-0 and another 1-0 win here for Birmingham has odds of 13/2.

Birmingham City vs Hull City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

The Birmingham City badge will surely be seen in League One next season

Birmingham are on a terrible run of form at the minute, losing their last seven league games in a row and find themselves stuck in the drop zone on 30 points, just two more than rock bottom Sunderland. It’s a position even the most pessimistic Sky Bet Championship preview wouldn’t have expected the Blues to be in at the start of the season.

Hull are coming off the back of two good wins, over Norwich 4-3 and Ipswich 3-0, which put some daylight between themselves and the relegation places and that upturn in form has to be considered in any football predictions for today.

Birmingham are 9/5 and have won just six times at home this season in the league, drawing twice and losing 10 times. It doesn’t take free football betting tips to know the Midlands club are heading for League One.

Hull are 6/4 and have won just three games in the Championship on their travels this season, drawing five games and losing ten times.

The draw is 9/4 and in the last 13 meetings between these sides, just three games have ended all even and all three have ended 0-0. Another 0-0 here has odds of 8/1.

Football score predictions such as a 2-1 win for Hull have odds of around 10/1. Abel Hernadez is 11/2 to score the opening goal of the game, while Birmingham’s Sam Gallagher can also be found at around 11/2 to net the game’s first goal.

Sky Bet Championship predictions are not always easy but most bookies have Hull as the more likeliest team to take the lead and they can be backed at 10/11 to score the first goal of the game.

Hull’s top goalscorer Jarrod Bowen is 5/2 to score at any time during the game while Polish international Kamil Grosicki is 10/3.

Predicted Score: Birmingham City 1 - 3 Hull City
