So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the Birmingham vs Luton odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Birmingham odds: 19/10 (2.90) – 35%

Draw odds: 15/7 (3.14) – 32%

Luton odds: 6/4 (2.50) – 40%

Luton are obviously the away team here but they arrive into this game as the bookmakers favourites. That said, there isn't loads between the two ‘to win' odds, which suggests the bookies aren't entirely sure how this match will play out. At least that's true from a match result angle. Where the total goals market is concerned they are seemingly convinced that this game will be low scoring with the under 2.5 betting option quite heavily odds on.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Birmingham vs Luton

Birmingham

Birmingham have been on a pretty poor run of form lately but their injury list isn't helping one bit. Krystian Bielik and Troy Deeney are two key names currently sidelined whilst there are eight first teamers out in total. That somewhat limits what John Eustace can do to freshen up his side.

Predicted lineup – Ruddy, Colin, Long, Trusty, Emmanuel, Chong, Chang, Bacuna, Hall, Mejbri, Hogan

Luton

Luton, like their hosts, are also in the middle of a poor run of results. They have, however, looked more likely to grab a result with their display against Burnley last time out loaded with promise – especially considering Tom Lockyer was sent off. Lockyer will obviously be unavailable for this clash due to suspension but, beyond him, the side could be unchanged. The fact Sonny Bradley and Cody Drameh are also out does limit the defensive depth somewhat though!

Predicted lineup – Horvath, Burke, Osho, Doughty, Potts, Bell, Mpanzu, Berry, Clark, Morris, Adebayo

Player to watch

With Tom Lockyer out injured, the role of Luton defender Reece Burke in getting his side organised will be huge. If the Hatters can keep things tight defensively then they'll be confident of getting the job done with the likes of Elijah Adebayo leading the line for them.
