Birmingham vs Preston Predictions
- Preston have drawn a blank in their last two league games and have scored just three in their last five.
- Birmingham have failed to net in three of their last five Championship matches, scoring just two goals over that period.
- Preston’s last five league games have all produced under 2.5 goals, with the same applying to three of City’s last four outings.
Drab Contest in Store With Both Sides Misfiring
Wednesday’s Championship clash between Birmingham and Preston pits together two misfiring frontlines and punters shouldn’t expect too many goals to be flying in at St Andrews.
With Preston losing their last two and Birmingham enduring a run of five defeats in six prior to their 0-1 victory at Middlesbrough on Saturday, neither side makes any great appeal in terms of the match betting here and the total goals market merits full attention instead.
Both sides’ indifferent results of late is largely due to their lack of potency in front of goal, with Birmingham drawing a blank in three of their last five and Preston failing to trouble the scoreboard in their last two outings.
The teams have scored a meagre five goals between them across their last five league outings and that points us firmly in the direction of under 2.5 goals for this midweek clash.
Preston’s last five games and three of Birmingham’s last four have also generated under 2.5 goals which won’t come as a huge shock considering their thin contributions in attack, so we really expect this to be a dull contest and we’re also chancing a goalless draw at decent odds.
