Birmingham will make it 15 not out against Pompey
Despite going 14 matches unbeaten, Birmingham can be backed at 7/4 on Betfair to win away to hapless Pompey, who have lost seven of their ten home league games this season.
Alex McLeish’s men have picked up 11 points from their last five league away days, with impressive draws at Liverpool and Everton and triumphs at Wolves, Wigan and Stoke.
In midweek, they force-fed Nottingham Forest a first away defeat since March last year. Portsmouth, on the other hand, snuck past Coventry with a last-minute equaliser and then a last-gasp winner in extra-time, while their last league outings were convincing losses to West Ham and Arsenal.
Birmingham’s record at Fratton Park isn’t too shabby either – suffering just two defeats in their last 12 visits, so it would be a big shock if they don’t make Pompey fans miserable again.
