      Birmingham vs Cardiff Predictions

      Just 3 points separate 7th place Cardiff from Birmingham in 8th but only the Welsh club can move into the top six here and they will do so with just a point from the game. It is also Cardiff who approach it in much the better form and with greater confidence.

      Cardiff are unbeaten in 4 matches, winning 2 and drawing 2. After a long period where they were involved in some tight low-scoring affairs, suddenly the goals have been flowing at both ends but their more positive approach seems to be paying dividends. Both teams have scored twice or more in all of their last 4 games, which have ended in two 2-2 draws and two 3-2 wins, the most recent of which came at home to in-form Brentford in midweek.

      They also won 3-2 in their most recent away match at Bolton and will be hopeful of picking up another victory here against a Birmingham side that has fallen away a bit in recent weeks after a bright start to the campaign.

      The Blues are winless in 5 matches and have won only 1 of their last 9 in the league. Solid draws in their last two matches at Middlesbrough and Preston would be considered good results by most teams in this league but almost nobody in the division is as bad at their own stadium as Birmingham are.

      They have lost 5 of their last 7 games at St Andrews and have only scored in only 1 of those 7 matches. Rowett’s men seem better suited to playing away from home on the break and given their pitiful home record and Cardiff’s good form, the visitors look excellent value at 2.175 with a +0.0 Asian Handicap.

      That offers some insurance given Cardiff are one of the division’s draw specialists but if they can carry the same goal threat that they have in recent weeks, they could win this and at 10/1, they are worth a punt to win 2-1.
