  • The Blues have won their opening home game in nine of their last 15 league campaigns

Blues looking strong

Birmingham won 1-0 at promotion hopefuls Sheffield United last time out and the Blues are a good bet for the points this weekend.

Birmingham are unbeaten in their last 12 home league matches against Stoke, winning nine of those encounters. The Blues have won four of the last six meetings between the sides since Stoke were relegated to the Championship.

Those three seasons have seen Stoke toil and their opening day win over Reading doesn’t convince me that their summer signings are enough to make them promotion contenders.

Birmingham have lost their first home league match in one of the last 15 seasons (W9 D5) and Lee Bowyer has built on last season’s good finish with some solid signings. Bowyer led the Blues to a 2-0 win when these two sides met in April.

Stoke have won only one of their opening away games across the last 13 seasons and we’re backing them to struggle here. A home win is my pick, while a 1-0 correct score prediction comes with the Blues winning by a single goal in 12 of 13 wins last term.

  • 12 of Birmingham’s 13 Championship victories last season were by a single goal
  • Stoke’s last five Championship away games have finished with under 2.5 goals
