Man City Birmingham betting prediction

Betting suggestion:

This match puts on the field two teams that fight in different divisions of English football, but it is still expected a very balanced match with chances of goals. On one hand, Manchester City has a high quality squad, on the other, a Birmingham City that is very dangerous on the counterattack. Having said that, and taking into account all these factors, betting in favor of the "Over 3 Goals" market is a good option.
