Calling it even

We kick off our tips for this match by backing the draw. Birmingham are currently unbeaten in six home games on the spin but, notably, they have drawn four of those games with each of their last two at St Andrews seeing the spoils shared. Sunderland meanwhile have avoided defeat in three of their last five away games but two of those three matches have been draws. With that form considered alongside a rather mixed head to head record we think the value bet is straight down the middle.

Both teams will score

We now turn our attention to the both teams to score market and we are betting that both teams find the net in this game. Birmingham have netted a total of eight goals across their past five outings at home with Sunderland hitting six in their last five away games. That gives both sides a game average sitting north of 1.0 goal scored per game, which is a good sign for both sides netting here whilst the last two head to head clashes between these teams have also ended with goals at both ends.

Here are the key stats & form guide for Birmingham vs Sunderland

Can Birmingham pile pressure on top six?

The Championship is a crazy league and this game sort of sums that up. Birmingham sit just three points outside of the playoff places whilst Sunderland are just four points off the drop zone but, notably, there are also only four points between the two sides as well. That means that a run of form, be it positive or negative, for either side could completely transform the way they're viewing their seasons. The three points on offer here could be massive for both sides and their respective ambitions for the year.

Birmingham arrive here in good form and will be confident of getting a decent result. As for their squad selection, things remain exactly as was; that means Gary Gardner and Przemyslaw Placheta are the only two players missing – both are out injured.

Birmingham Predicted lineup – Ruddy, Colin, Sanderson, Trusty, Graham, Mejbri, Bacuna, Chong, Emmanuel, Deeney, Hogan

Sunderland might sit close to the relegation zone but they'll point to their injury list as part of the justification for their dip in form. Ali Alese, Lynden Gooch and Ross Stewart are all unavailable for selection with a couple of others also sidelined who would probably be deemed less important.

Sunderland Predicted lineup – Patterson, Cirkin, Batth, Wright, O'Nien, Pritchard, Embleton, Evans, Roberts, Diallo, Dajaku
