Birmingham FC vs. Leeds United Football Club Tips 10/26/11

Our English soccer scores predictions continue on Wednesday afternoon with the clash at St. Andrews Stadium between Birmingham FC and Leeds United FC.

Birmingham might be in 14th place in the English League Championship table, but don’t let that fool you. The Blues are three fixtures behind most of the rest of the pack, and if they can take even a modest five points from those three extra games, they’ll be right back in the thick of things in the Premiership Promotion race.

So far this year at St. Andrews, Birmingham has been spectacular. The team is 3-1-0 to show for its four fixtures in the second flight of English football, though the schedule hasn’t been anything to really write home about. Even in the Europa League, where the Blues are one of the rare Championship sides competing in the competition, they have a 3-0 win over CD Nacional de Madeira in the playoff round. However, the team has proven to be outmatched in the first qualifying round of the tournament, as it has three losses in a row, including two of which have come at home.

As always, you have to keep an eye on Chris Wood, Chris Burke, and Adam Rooney when you’re watching Birmingham FC. These three have combined for 14 of the team’s 17 goals on the season, and if the Blues can keep that type of offense up, they are going to be tough to keep out of the Premier League again next year.

Perhaps the best thing that Leedsunited ever did was go into administration. Sure, it took the team all the way down to League One for a number of years, and there was even a flirtation with League Two for awhile, but that was probably the only way that the club was going to have a chance of getting back to the top flight of English soccer again.

In 2009-10, Leeds United FC came back to the Championship, and now, they are in a position where they really could make their triumphant return to the Premiership.

United is 6-3-3 in its first 12 fixtures this year, and three points in this match, the extra match that it has in hand against some of the rest of the top contenders could put it back in the automatic promotion range instead of in the promotion playoff where it currently sits.

Leeds has gotten at least a result in five straight fixtures since getting blasted out of the Carling Cup by Manchester United. Even then, in the Championship, the last loss came at Ipswich Town by the count of 2-1 on August 27th. The only match this year in which the team didn’t make it into the scoring column came on August 13th against Middlesbrough.

We tend to think that we are going to see goals aplenty in this game, and we are shocked to see the ‘total’ at 2.5, even with an ‘over’ price of -130. Birmingham gets the slight nod over Leeds at +130, or you can bet on the Asian Handicap at -150 at a pick ’em.
