Birmingham City Backed To Continue Winning Start Against Swansea
Birmingham City make the trip to the Liberty Stadium to face Swansea on Saturday seeking a second win in a row to start their Championship campaign.
Aitor Karanka’s side earned a hard-fought 1-0 victory on the opening weekend at Brentford’s expense thanks to a goal from Jeremie Bela.
Blues have already seen support to make it six points from six as their odds have been trimmed into 16/5 from 7/2 for their trip to Wales.
Swansea have only won one of their last five home games against Birmingham City and have already seen a slight drift with their odds now at 11/10 from Even money.
Fewer than three goals have been scored in total in each of Blues’ last five away games. Punters have made under 2.5 total goals just a 4/7 shot for Saturday’s clash.
New Blues boss Karanka will likely be looking to Lukas Jutkiewicz to lead the side once more as the striker has scored more league goals (15) than any other Birmingham City player since the start of last season.
It’s 4/6 that he will have at least one shot on target while 16/5 is available on him hitting the target more than once.
Republic of Ireland striker Scott Hogan who has made a permanent move to Birmingham City on a four year deal on Wednesday is 6/1 to score first. Hogan, who was on loan from Aston Villa last season, scored seven goals in eight matches before football was suspended in March.
