Match Summary

3 It's a long shot, but…

Tyler Roberts to score three or more goals is 41/1 with MansionBet. The 19-year-old Leeds forward netted twice against Preston North End midweek and will start, given his side’s front line is ravaged with injuries.

One to Watch: Tyler Roberts

Tyler Roberts is a man in form for Leeds United and looks set to be rewarded for his performance against Preston midweek with a run in the team.

Injuries forced Bielsa’s hand into playing Roberts, but the 19-year-old forward has stepped up to the plate remarkably, netting a brace against Preston on Tuesday night.

Certain to start against the Blues at the weekend, a bright future is in the offing for Roberts and that is why 8/5 to score anytime is one of the best football betting tips for the Championship this weekend.

Leeds United vs Birmingham City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Leeds make it a ninth league game without defeat?

Unbeaten Leeds United host winless Birmingham City at Elland Road, in a game that according to the form book should be a walk in the park for the hosts. However, former Leeds manager Garry Monk is the man at the helm of the Blues and would love nothing more than to get his side’s first three points of the campaign at his old stomping ground. Expect a tough Championship battle in our football predictions, with the Whites set to make it nine from nine unbeaten in the league.

Leeds are 4/5 to win and that is one of the best football score predictions to take in this match. The Blues are yet to win a game this season and both of their losses came away from home, making a Whites win today’s football prediction.

Birmingham are 10/3 to win and it is hard to argue a case for Monk’s men. Winless and just two goals on the road this season makes an away win one to stay away from in our Championship preview.

The draw is 13/5 and there is value to be taken from this results in our Championship predictions. This is because of the sides’ combined sixteen games this season, nine have been draws (three for Leeds and six for Birmingham).

Under 2.5 goals is 17/20 and is one of the best football betting tips for the weekend. Birmingham’s last three matches have seen a total of just two goals, whereas Leeds have scored just four goals in their last four games.

Leeds to keep a clean sheet is 11/8, making it one of the best football predictions for this game. The Whites have only conceded once in their last four league matches, while the Blues have only scored twice on the road all season.

Predicted Score: Leeds United 2 - 0 Birmingham City
