Birmingham vs Luton Predictions

  • At least three goals have been scored in the last six Birmingham City matches and ten of their last 12.
  • At least three goals have been scored in five of the last nine Luton Town games.
  • Two of the last four Birmingham City games have finished 2-2.

Goal backers can form an orderly queue

Goal backers should be queuing up to get on overs when Luton Town travel to St Andrew’s to face a generous Birmingham City side on Saturday. The Hatters are no slouches in front of goal themselves, having racked up a tidy tally of 21 strikes in their last 11 matches, but Birmingham are the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to an over 2.5 goals bet.

Ten of the Blues’ last 12 matches in all competitions have seen at least three goals scored, which includes all of the last six prior to Saturday’s game. And goals are occurring at both ends of the pitch too with Lee Bowyer’s side responsible for ten of the 26 registered across the last half dozen contests.

That averages out at over four per game in the last month and gives plenty of margin for error to an over 2.5 goals recommendation here.

Hatters face unfamiliar pressures in playoff chase

Luton will fancy their chances of winning at St Andrew’s after extending their five-match unbeaten run with a 2-1 win over bottom club Barnsley in midweek. They totally dominated the Tykes and deserved to win with a bit to spare, but our major concern over backing them at around 6/4 here is that they don’t always fare well as favourites.

They are now very much in the promotion hunt, which is a remarkable achievement for Nathan Jones and his squad, but it brings some unfamiliar pressures. Nothing would have been expected of them if this game were played a few weeks ago, but they are now being billed as banker bets to win.

We’re taking a cautious approach with Luton in this and forecasting an entertaining draw with 2-2 looking like some value in correct score betting. Two of Birmingham’s last four games have finished that way and the Hatters might slip up by a similar score if they aren’t careful.
