BOYLESPORTS: Sky Blues Favourites For Good Friday Win

15 April 2022

Coventry City will kick off as favourites to build on last weekend’s away victory at Fulham with another three points on the road in the Championship on Friday against Birmingham.

The impressive 3-1 victory over the league leaders means Mark Robins’ men have scored 54 league goals this campaign, eleven of which have now come in second half stoppage time after they added another last gasp goal, this time from Callum O’Hare.

17 of the 54 goals have come after the 75th minute with only two sides in the division netting more in that period, so the second half markets may be of interest to punters keen on backing Coventry to continue their trend of finishing matches strongly.

Some shrewd observers may be tempted by the 2/1 that the Sky Blues score their first goal of the match in the second half, while Viktor Gyokeres is the 4/1 favourite in the betting to have the final say by scoring the last goal of the game.

That has been the case for six of his last eight goals, while his first half strike against the Cottagers was his second in three games and took his tally for the season to 15. Only five players have scored more than the Swedish striker this campaign, so it’s no surprise to see his name at the head of the first goalscorer betting too at 4/1.

It also must be noted that the 5/2 about a share of the spoils is appearing on an increasing number of coupons ahead of kick-off, so punters may be latching on to an incredible run which has seen seven consecutive meetings between Coventry and Birmingham finish level after 90 minutes, a streak stretching all the way back to 2012.
