Birmingham City vs Rotherham
Date: Saturday, 26 September 2020
Kick-Off at 15.00 UK
Venue: St Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium, Birmingham.
Judging by the first two appearances, Birmingham City’s fans definitely have a lot of room for optimism. This squad barely avoided relegation last season, ending just two points above the red line.
The new campaign started with one victory and a draw, currently occupying the 7th place on table. The Blues from Birmingham welcome Rotherham this Saturday, being labeled as warm favorites for the win at 2.20 odds.
The hosts defeated one of the best teams in league Brentford in the opening match, so we don’t see a reason why would Rotherham represent an obstacle.

Birmingham City vs Rotherham Prediction
Rotherham are currently 2nd team on the outright odds for teams to get relegated from the Championship this year. They did indeed beat Wycombe Wanderers in the opening match, but looked completely clueless at first home game and loss to Millwall.
Birmingham City are in much better shape at the moment, beating The Bees and holding their ground in Wales last weekend against Swansea. Once again, fans are expecting to see a lot of goals coming from Lukas Jutkiewicz.
When it comes to the goals market, the last four meetings ended with both teams scoring at least one goal, while Over 2.5 FT bet was in 75% of cases. We love the value for this option at 2.30.
