Brentford - Birmingham

Asian Handicap
Pick: Birmingham (+1)
Odds: 1.89
Stake: 1

Match date: 06/04/2021

Very important match for both teams as Brentford trying to remain in the playoff spots while Birmingham fighting to avoid relegation.

Currently Brentford in third place ten points from Watford but with two games in hand and even if now they sit ten points behind they have a more favourable schedule and can hope to catch Watford. Nevertheless with current form of both teams I don’t believe that we will see Brentford surpassing Watford.

Brentford’s form has not been good lately with just three wins in last ten matches and one win in last five matches. They are coming to this match after three consecutive draws against teams in lower part of the table and this inconsistency have costed them the second place of the table.

On the other hand after appointing Lee Bowyer as manager Birmingham have obtained important results.  Bowyer had very tough schedule in his first matches facing top teams like Reading, Watford and Swansea and now Brentford. Except from the defeat by Watford, who IMO are the best team at the moment in Championship, Birmingham showed good games and defeated both playoff candidates Reading and Swansea.

These results contributed Birmingham to sit at 21th place six points clear from relegation, but Rotherham has three matches less so not a very comfortable spot for Birmingham. In this context every point is vital for them.  

Given the current performances from both teams, tonight I expect a tough match and Brentford won’t have an easy night against a stubborn opponent like Birmingham.

Also having in mind that for tonight’s match Lee Bowyer has the luxury to have a full and fit team while Brentford will miss Baptiste, Dasilva and Henry, while Dalsgaard is doubtful, I see Birmingham in position to take something out from this match. In any case I hardly see Birmingham losing by more than one goal so I think +1 on Birmingham has a great value as I expected less favourable odds.

WIN Score: 0:0 Profit: +0.89
