Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at the Bet365 Stadium comes in the form of a draw between Stoke City and Birmingham City.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £36 with Betway.
A Stoke City outfit fresh off a morale-boosting three points last time out will act as hosts on Saturday, November 5th, as Birmingham City prepare to make the trip to the Bet365 Stadium for a Championship clash
Heading into the latest midweek round of fixtures, Alex Neil’s Stoke stood as one of the most off colour clubs across the entirety of England’s 2nd tier.
A trio of successive defeats had seen the Potters plummet down the table, dragged firmly into the battle against relegation.
In turn, a meeting with fellow strugglers Wigan Athletic proved absolutely crucial for a whole host of reasons.
And, upon the final whistle sounding at the DW Stadium, it was the evening’s visitors who emerged with all three points, courtesy of a solitary 2nd-half strike from Josh Tymon.
Stoke, for the time being, have therefore climbed away from the bottom three, into 17th.
No doubt fancying their chances of plummeting Saturday’s hosts back into despair, though, are a Birmingham City outfit in the midst of a solid recent stretch of form of their own.
The Blues, all told, have been put to the sword in only one of their last six, a run which also includes wins over Bristol City, Hull City, and high-flying Queens Park Rangers.
Last time out, meanwhile, a showdown with Millwall at St. Andrew’s saw John Eustace’s men emerge with a credible share of the spoils, courtesy of a 0-0 stalemate.
Birmingham, in turn, have their sights set on a concerted climb up the Championship table over the weeks ahead, in the knowledge that a 2nd win in three next time out could guide them into the top half.
And, when it comes to potential wagers on the upcoming round of fixtures in England’s 2nd tier, one could do far worse than back the Blues to manage exactly that.
We at 101 are therefore opting for an away victory come the final whistle between Stoke and Birmingham at The Bet365 on Saturday afternoon.
