Under 2.5 goals at Birmingham City vs Hull City 1/1 for Saturday’s Championship showdown

Competition: Championship

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 1/1 @ Bet 365

In the midst of a growing crisis and simply trying to find a route out of the bottom-three, Hull will make the trip to a downbeat St. Andrew’s on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Birmingham may have managed to snatch a point away at title contenders West Brom on their return to action, the Blues are enduring a worrying end to the season. Failing to win any of their last seven matchups on the bounce and almost stuck in Championship limbo, the Midlands outfit have also shown plenty of issues at St. Andrew’s prior to the break. Along with what was a shock hammering against Reading in their last contest on home soil, Head Coach Pep Clotet has seen his men land just a single Championship win at St. Andrew’s since October 26th. With some in their camp potentially looking over their shoulder at the drop zone, it should also be noted that the Blues have been hit with back-to-back defeats against the Tigers.

As for the visitors, marking their return from the enforced break with another dreadful display and hit with a 1-0 defeat at home against fellow relegation scrappers Charlton last week, Hull are in nothing short of a crisis. Losing their last six Championship matchups on the bounce, the Tigers have now failed to land a single win across any format since New Year’s Day. With the mood around the KCOM at a continued low and freefalling down to League One by the looks of things, Hull have gained a worrying reputation for their rather glaring issues in the final third. Drawing a blank against a Charlton side who were on their own three-match losing run, Saturday’s hosts have now managed to bag just a single Championship strike in any of their last four contests on the spin.
