Birmingham 4/11 to beat Loudoun in Thursday’s USL matchup
Market: Birmingham win
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Hoping to widen their buffer in the top-seven, Birmingham will host Loudoun in the early hours of Thursday when the midweek USL fixtures get underway.
Starting with the hosts, coming off the back of a sluggish display last weekend, Birmingham will be seeking an immediate response here. In their 20 USL matchups so far this season, they have recorded nine wins, five draws and six defeats, scoring 22 and conceding 19 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 32, they open the midweek fixtures sat sixth in the Eastern Conference and holding a seven-point buffer from slipping out of the top-seven. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-0 loss against Tulsa, that is the only defeat that Birmingham have suffered from their last four USL outings. Likewise, it should also be highlighted, along with losing just a pair of their previous 10 second-tier outings, Thursday’s hosts have also lost just one of their last five home fixtures.
As for the visitors, putting in another worrying display last week, Loudoun are in the midst of an extended rut. In their 19 USL matchups so far this season, they have recorded four wins, three draws and 12 defeats, scoring 20 and conceding 38 in return. Managing to muster a points tally of 15, they open the midweek fixtures sat 12th in the Eastern Conference and already a staggering 16 points adrift of breaking into the top-seven. As for their recent run of results, last seen getting hit with a 2-1 loss against Miami FC on home soil, Loudoun have managed to pick up just a single point from any of their previous four USL matchups. Likewise, it should also be noted, with Thursday’s guests losing each of their last six away fixtures on the spin, we’re backing a home victory here.
