Let’s start with Birmingham. Scroll down for Coventry!
Blues are coming in for support for a successful Championship campaign in John Eustace’s first season in charge.
The former Coventry, Stoke, Watford and Derby midfielder signed a three-year deal at St Andrew’s this summer having previously managed Kidderminster between 2016 and 2018, before a four-year stint as assistant manager at QPR.
Eustace begins his first Championship campaign with an away trip to Luton Town and Blues are 10/3 underdogs for their season opener.
An increase in support in the Midlands since his appointment means Birmingham are now 8/1 shots from 10/1 in the latest betting with BoyleSports to finish the 2022/23 season inside the top six.
A top-half finish has also been clipped into 11/4 from 4/1, while last season’s points tally of 47 is heavily expected to be breached with a 50-plus haul now odds-on at 8/13.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports, said: “Punters in the Midlands are certainly keeping faith in Birmingham to bounce back this season and support has been on the up since John Eustace took over.
“Top-half and even top-six finishes have both been well backed, so there are signs of optimism and we’ll be keeping a close eye on the Blues’ early season form.”

Let’s move on to Coventry City! Sky Blues are being well backed for a successful campaign as the countdown to the new season finally ends for them on Sunday.
Mark Robins’ side begin their new season in front of the Sky Sports cameras with an away trip to League One play-off winners Sunderland at 12pm and are edging the betting at 6/4 with BoyleSports to get off to a winning start.
LOOK AT SOME OF THESE PRICE BOOSTS FOR SUNDERLAND VS COVENTRY CITY
Coventry’s play-off push faded towards the end of last season, but punters are bullish about more progress under Robins as they were trimmed into 8/1 from 10/1 for promotion to the Premier League, while the chances of them eclipsing last season’s points total of 64 is rated an odds-on shot at 4/7.
Odds of 25/1 are on offer about Coventry earning top-flight football for the first time since the 2000/01 season as Champions, half the price they were at the start of last season.
Chelsea Academy graduate and summer recruit from Bristol City, Kasey Palmer, has been chalked up at 6/1 to scoop the Players’ Player of the Year accolade after his maiden season in the Sky Blue, while Mark Robins is a 10/1 shot to pick up a Manager of the Month award before May next year.
Lawrence Lyons, spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Coventry City are one of the teams catching punters’ attention ahead of the new season and there is plenty of confidence they will kick on after a promising 2021/22 campaign.
“The odds favour a winning start this weekend and some significant early support has forced us down to 8/1 from 10/1 about promotion for the Sky Blues.”
