The Blackburn Rovers are ranked fifth in the 24-team English Championship League outscoring opponents 43-42 in 37 matches. The defense has slipped while losing two of three in 3-2 losses to Stoke City and Sheffield United, both on the road. They'll be without injured defender Daniel Ayala, who is out of action for a few more weeks. Blackburn has allowed 9 goals in its last five road games with four going OVER 2 goals. 17th-ranked Birmingham City has home field but is getting outscored 50-42 in 38 matches with the league's 16th-ranked defense. And for this game, defender Dion Sanderson won't play after a back injury that will probably end his season. 11 of Birmingham City's last 19 games have gone OVER 2 goals, while five of the last six meetings between these rivals have sailed OVER 2. Take Birmingham City/Blackburn Rovers OVER the total.
