Birmingham City - Nottingham Forest betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 19:45 on 21/04/2021 played @ St. Andrew's Stadium refereed by Jeremy Simpson

Birmingham City will have to put on their best performance to record a home win against Nottingham Forest. The price of 2.55 indicates a difficult battle and that’s exactly what we expect to see in this match.

The visitors are well-aware of the task ahead. Beating The Blues is difficult under any circumstances and doing it on their own turf would be an even bigger achievement for Forest.

Birmingham City’s previous away game against Rotherham United was an altogether dull affair as far as the result goes, though they shouldn’t be unhappy with the : draw. Neither side managed to pull ahead throughout the runtime, but Birmingham City’s opponents were widely considered the stronger team.

The latest outing we saw from Forest ended in disaster despite the home-field advantage. Most predictions saw them as more-or-less equal to their opponents Huddersfield Town, but they were unable to recover from some early concessions, losing the game 0:2.

With a grand total of 0 concessions over their last three Championship games, Birmingham City’s defensive line feels like a brick wall. Therefore, To Win to Nil seems like a reasonable choice in this game.

team from Nottingham have a record of uneventful away matches. Specifically, their previous 2 games as visitors featured 1 goal or less.

With several tied games behind them, the teams will be looking to switch things up to get the upper hand. Several matches between Birmingham and team from Nottingham ended in a draw this season alone, so it’s clear they’ll need to get creative – especially the hosts.

Fortunately, both teams will be able to give their all this Wednesday. Neither squad has been affected by injuries or suspensions, allowing the coaches to work with all the tools at their disposal.

Considering the teams’ respective records and histories, and Under 2.5 Goals bet here is a shoo-in. The returns are not exactly jaw-dropping, but that’s to be expected from a bet as safe as this one.
