Today's Predictions for Birmingham vs Sheffield Utd

Both Birmingham and Sheffield United will be aiming to end their campaign on a positive note when they meet in the Championship on Monday. Read our top Birmingham vs Sheffield Utd predictions for this week’s fixture.

Birmingham Double Chance

Birmingham City welcome Sheffield United to St Andrew's Stadium on the final day of the Championship campaign on Monday, and with little motivation for either side to perform, the game’s competitive edge might be a little blunt. The Blades have already secured promotion to the Premier League and having lost at Huddersfield on Thursday evening, they could toil again on Monday without their incentive to perform. Birmingham have home advantage to enjoy and the first of our football betting tips this week recommends standing with them in the double chance market.

Under 2.5 Goals

Birmingham have failed to score in two straight Championship fixtures and have netted only twice in their last five assignments in the division overall, while Sheffield United looked like they had checked out in their 1-0 loss at Huddersfield on Thursday where they mustered just five attempts. With both clubs lacking the impetus to attack with menace, a low-scoring end-of-season dead rubber is anticipated on Monday and we close our Birmingham vs Sheffield Utd predictions with a nod in the direction of under 2.5 goals.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, Birmingham – Sheffield Utd odds and probability figures ahead of Monday’s contest below.

Birmingham odds: 53/20 (3.65) – 27.4%

Draw odds: 11/5 (3.20) – 31.3%

Sheffield Utd odds: 99/100 (1.99) – 50.3%

The probability of a Birmingham win this week has been set at just 27.4% by the market makers while a stake on both teams to score on Monday could snatch you a winner at 3/4 (1.75– 57.1%). Sheffield United are listed as this week’s expected winners, though backing the visitors to net under 1.5 goals at 8/11 (1.73) really catches our attention. That outcome has an implied probability of 57.9%.

Birmingham vs Sheffield Utd Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Birmingham vs Sheffield Utd lineups and team news for Monday’s Championship tussle below.

Birmingham

Birmingham could be without the services of Gary Gardner, Josh Williams, Tate Campbell, George Hall, Tahith Chong and Przemyslaw Placheta on Monday. The Blues will kick off their final game in 17th spot and they aren't likely to move very far from there by the close of business.

Predicted Lineup for Birmingham: Etheridge – Colin, Roberts, Long, Trusty – Bielik, Bacuna – Mejbri, James, Bellingham – Jutkiewicz

Sheffield Utd

Ben Osborn, Rhian Brewster, Rhys Norrington-Davies and Jack O'Connell are all out injured for Sheffield United at present. The Blades are guaranteed to finish second no matter what happens on the campaign's final day.

Predicted Lineup for Sheffield Utd: Foderingham – Basham, Ahmedhodžić, Robinson – Bogle, McAtee, Norwood, Doyle, Lowe – Jebbison, Nidaye

Player to Watch – Hannibal Mejbri

Hannibal Mejbri will play his last game for Birmingham on Monday – if he’s selected to start and the 20-year-old can be pleased with his work for the campaign ahead of his return to parent club Man Utd. The Tunisian has picked up ten bookings in just 21 starts this term, so he could be a good card market option this week.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
