Hull city will travel to Birmingham to face off with the Blues in Round 17 of the Championship.
An 11 match unbeaten run for the Blues ended with a loss to Derby in the last match. In 4 of the last 5 matches across all venues which they played, the final score had over 2.5 goals in total.
At home, they are currently on a 3 game win streak and the last 4 games played there had above 2.5 goals produced at the final whistle. They are the only team to not lose a game at home in the Championship. In the 8 games they played at home, they had 5 draws and 3 wins.
With this admirable run of form, they are 10th in the table with 5 wins and 3 defeats in 16 matches. They tend to draw more matches. They are equal on points with QPR and Swansea and are just 7 points from the top spot.
Hull have won their recent 2 matches in the competition and ended a 7 game winless run. Their last 7 matches saw fewer than 2.5 goals. But they are in the relegation zone with just 15 points.
The Tigers had a 5 game losing streak on the road which was broken by a win at Bolton. Last 3 of those matches had fewer than 2.5 goals in total.
Birmingham is in great form at home and the relegation side will need to put a stellar show to get something out of this match. A win for the away team will lift them out of the bottom zone.
Birmingham vs Hull City: Head-to-head (h2h)
- In the last 4 h2h matches, both teams have 2 wins each.

- Birmingham won the last 2 h2h played at their home.
Birmingham vs Hull City: Prediction
The Blues have not lost a game in previous 9 home matches, which includes an active 3 game win streak. While the visitors lost 4 of their previous 5 away matches. The only win they got was against Bolton who themselves are struggling for wins. This is strengthened by the h2h stats in this ground where the hosts have won the last 2 games. So we can assume the home side will win comfortably and place a bet on the same with 1.91 odd.
Last 4 home games of Blues had over 2.5 goals. But only 2 of the 6 h2h played at their home had over 2.5 scorelines. Also in 8 of their league matches the same trend exists. If we check the scores of games played by the visitors it is clear that in 11 matches of their 16 league matches had fewer than 2.5 goals. So we can say that this game will produce under 2.5 goals with 1.80 odd.
