When you hear about a game between Fulham and Birmingham, you might not be sure which league we’re talking about. If it were around the year 2000, it would be the Championship. Between 2002 and 2011, we’ve mostly seen both teams in the Premier League.
Nowadays, they play each other in the Championship, hoping to win their place for top-tier football. We’d certainly like to see them there, but which team has more chances?
Fulham vs Birmingham
Their head-to-head record tells us that Birmingham hasn’t lost last season against Fulham, and even won with a 5-2 scoreline. This year, they’ve gathered 8 points from the first 5 games, losing only to Wolves.
Their season debut is fairly good ahead of the away game at Fulham, where they will be looking to win at least a point. Overall, they have a very balanced start : two wins and two draws alongside the loss, and a 7-5 goal difference.
On the other hand, Fulham started the season in full force. They currently sit 2nd, undefeated, with 11 points gathered from 3 wins and 2 draws.
One of these draws came at home, 2-2 against Cardiff. Overall, a 7-4 goal difference shows us a disciplined and resilient side which defends very well and is very capable of closing games when they need to. They will most probably take this pragmatic approach against Birmingham as well, aiming for a 1-0 short win.
Fulham vs Birmingham Betting Prediction & Tips
From a betting perspective, we fancy Fulham to continue their good form and not lose this game. 1X is a good idea, and a solo home win can also bring you some good money.
We don’t expect a spectacular game – we see two good defenses going against each other, and at the end of the day, a 0-0 draw won’t kill anyone. But if there ever was a game where a 1-0 correct score bet would make sense, this is surely it.
Fulham To Win: 1.90 or 10/11
Total Goals – Under 2.5: 1.95 or 19/20
