Birmingham vs Wigan: Prediction

A win is inevitable for both sides here, Wigan are fighting to get out of the relegation zone, while Birmingham are playing for pride.

But the current form of these sides suggests this could be anyone’s for the taking. Moreover, both managers will think they could profit from the opposition’s poor form and we are expected to see a very open contest.

Therefore, the main pick for the match is both teams to score. Meanwhile, brave punters can opt for both teams to score and over 2.5 goals.
