Middlesbrough vs Birmingham City Betting Tips

Middlesbrough takes on Birmingham City this weekend with the visitors looking to end a dismal run of form in the Championship.

Indeed, the visitors arrive on Teeside having lost 5 of their last 6 league matches, and now find themselves just 4 points above the drop zone.

On the road, the Blues have actually been much stronger than at home with just 2 defeats in their last 11 away league outings in contrast to 7 defeats in 8 at St Andrew’s.

However, they face a tough test this weekend with Warnock´s side in excellent recent form, particularly at the Riverside where they have now won 7 of their last 9 league matches including each of their last 4. They also managed 3 clean sheets in 4 of those recent home wins.

Now sitting just 1 point outside the playoffs, Middlesbrough needs to continue their excellent home form to push themselves inside the top 6. With Birmingham winning just 2 of their last 14 league outings, I expect another home win for The Boro.

H2H form also reveals that the hosts have won 5 of the last 7 meetings between these two sides since 2017 and given the Blues recent struggles, another ´boro win looks solid at 1.8 odds.

Middlesbrough vs Birmingham City Correct Score Prediction

Warnock is a master of guiding less fashionable sides to the promotion, and I expect the hosts to maintain recent momentum with a 2:0 win over an out-of-sorts Birmingham.
