We were on the ball with three successful selections in the first FA Cup clash between Birmingham and Huddersfield, including a 6/1 correct score pay-out, and expect the replay to be tight again.
That was the fourth time in six meetings over the past three years that these teams had fought out a 1-1 draw, with each side winning once during that period.
A Look At Birmingham City’s Betting Odds
Birmingham had just 36 per cent of the possession at the John Smith’s Stadium but battled bravely to come from behind, with Lukas Jutkiewicz equalising after pouncing on a slip-up by Michael Hefele.
Jutkiewicz, who had a loan stint with the Terriers back in 2009, also had a goal ruled out for offside and went close with another late chance as the Blues made the most of their forays forward.
City have since secured back-to-back 3-1 victories over Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday in the Championship, making it four wins and a draw in their last six league games.
Steve Cotterill’s side should be full of confidence and can take heart from having beaten Huddersfield 2-0 here in the second tier last term.
Looking at the Birmingham vs Huddersfield odds, the hosts deserve to be slight favourites to go through at 4/5 on home turf this time.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield led at half-time in the initial encounter with Birmingham thanks to a fine header from Steve Mounie but went on to pay the price for not making more of their early dominance.
Joe Lolley should still have snatched a stoppage-time triumph when firing high over the bar from 12 yards out, with that being the last of their 18 attempts on goal.
That cup clash came in the middle of four Premier League defeats, which have left Town in the relegation zone, so David Wagner is expected to prioritise Saturday’s crucial clash with Bournemouth.
The Terriers’ fringe players may still be good enough to take this to extra-time, though, so 5/1 for that familiar 1-1 scoreline after 90 minutes is included in our Birmingham vs Huddersfield betting tips.
