Best Tip: Both teams to score

Both Blackburn and Birmingham fans should have some reason to cheer as their sides go head-to-head, with KickOff's prediction of both teams to score looking a much better pick than any bet on the full time result market. The two sides have plenty in attack, as is borne out by the statistics and past head-to-head data below. Even the bookies odds are not finding much to pick between the sides, as striking power and defensive options suggest each team is capable of both scoring and conceding. Both teams to score is the way to go here.

The betting community is becoming increasingly convinced that both Birmingham City and Blackburn Rovers's attackers are going to deliver on Tuesday, with odds getting shorter on BTTS - yes and drifting on BTTS - no. The punters predict proper action at both ends.
