Online bookmaker Paddy Power have a Money Back Special running for Blackburn v Wigan betting on Monday night. This is a massively important match in the relegation battle, and it is a game which Rovers need to win in order to keep their survival hopes burning for the final day of the season. The pressure is on Rovers boss Steve Kean, who has remained resolute through the club’s troubles, and knows that realistically his side need two wins from two. When Blackburn and Wigan come together, it usually produces some excitement, and there have been three penalties scored in the last two games between them. There was also a red card flashed in the season’s earlier meeting at the DW Stadium, and if there is another red card on Monday, then the Paddy Power special kicks in.
If any player in Blackburn v Wigan betting is shown a red card, then online bookmaker Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast single bets placed on the match. This provides some great coverage for your betting on these markets, and in the First Goalscorer market for example, Blackburn’s Yakubu, who has netted five times in six EPL matches against Wigan, is 5/1 favourite. In the Correct Score market, a 1-1 draw is trading as the favourite option at 11/2 with Paddy Power and so great coverage on bets like these can be taken with the Paddy Power Money Back Special. Online bookmaker Paddy Power offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account. They will match the value of a first stake on a new account, up to that maximum value.
Blackburn v Wigan Betting Odds at Paddy Power
Blackburn 11/8, Wigan 15/8, Draw 12/5
Blackburn need a win but they have been few and far between for Steve Kean’s men. Rovers have lost six and won just one of their last seven Premier League matches, and that is why they are in the trouble they are in. Worryingly too, they have failed to score in three of their last five matches as well, which isn’t helping. Blackburn have the second worst defence in the league, and they have produced some terrible defensive displays. In their last match, a 2-0 defeat away at Spurs, Blackburn did not even manage to rustle up a shot on goal in a hugely disappointing performance. Naturally fans weren’t happy about their lack of fight. So it looks as if their main chance of survival is only going to come at Ewood Park, where they have lost just two of the last six. But those two defeats have come in the last three home games. They did produce three points on their home appearance, a 2-0 win over Norwich, and they need to really pick themselves up for this one. A defeat here and they will be playing Championship football next season. Fortunately they have a strong home record against the Latics. Going into the weekend, Blackburn are already three points adrift, and it could be worse before kick off if both QPR and Bolton win their Sunday matches.

Wigan were unlucky not to pick up three points at the DW Stadium against Blackburn earlier in the season, and Rovers escaped with a point after Yakubu slotted a home a penalty almost ten minutes into injury time. That ended in a 3-3 draw, and when these two sides meet, as they have done thirteen times before in the Premier League, they have produced an average of 3.77 goals per game between them. There have been thirteen goals in the last two meetings between Rovers and the Latics, so would look for a high goalscoring game again in your betting options. Wigan have the form at the moment but it is a big difference from playing teams like Arsenal and Man Utd where there is time and space on the ball, to be harried and harassed by a physical side. Wigan are three points clear of the drop zone so there is still just a little bit of work do to in order to get over the line. Wigan are one of the most in form teams at the moment in the Premier League, winning five and drawing one of their last eight. If the league started eight matches ago, Wigan would be in fourth right now. It didn’t and they are not. A point would be enough for Wigan if both QPR and Bolton lose on the weekend. At least Wigan will have the advantage of knowing what the other relegation threatened teams will have already done as they head into this Monday night match.

Blackburn v Liverpool Betting Odds at Paddy Power
Blackburn 5/2, Draw 12/5, Liverpool 11/10
After three straight losses now, Blackburn are still in the drop zone and in big danger because their form has gone. Steve Kean’s men had initiated a bit of a mini revival, but with just one goal in their last three games, they have taken a downward spiral just at the wrong time. So can they bounce back with a morale boosting win over Liverpool? Rovers form at Ewood Park has not been too bad, with two wins, one draw and one defeat in their last four, so there is a suggestion that they have some fight in them. There wasn’t a lot of fight in them at The Hawthorns on Saturday, when they went down 3-0 and again some very poor defending really let them down. Can the home side produce the goods in Blackburn v Liverpool betting? Well, Rovers did earn themselves a 1-1 draw at Anfield earlier in the season, and it is not as if Liverpool are in the greatest shape themselves at the moment. With matches running out on the season, Blackburn really have to steel themselves here.
Liverpool snapped a three match losing streak by earning a draw at home against Aston Villa on the weekend. Again, it was another match for Kenny Dalglish’s men where they should have done better. After an even first half, Liverpool pretty much dominated the second period, but just could not find a winner. It wasn’t for the lack of trying and they played quite well, but again it highlighted the need for more quality up front. Luis Suarez got a precious equaliser for the Reds, but they just couldn’t turn that one point into three, and ran up their ninth home draw of the season. Liverpool have lost six of their last eight Premier League matches, with just one win in that period. After losing against relegation bound QPR and Wigan in recent weeks, a trip to Ewood Park isn’t going to be easy. However, the Reds will be favourites, but they are in some shaky form, and they could have one eye on next weekend’s FA Cup final too.

While Manchester City seem to just be rolling over and handing the league title to the Red Devils, Sir Alex Ferguson’s men still have a job to do in Blackburn Rovers v Manchester United betting on Monday night. Manchester United really have the change to drive home their supremacy in the title race now with a game against Rovers who are still fighting relegation. Manchester United will look to Wayne Rooney to fire them three points, and it is around the England striker that Paddy Power are offering their Money Back Special. If Wayne Rooney nets the last goal of the game on Monday night at Ewood Park, then Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast single bets placed on the match. So superb coverage being offered by the popular online bookmaker.
It means that you can dip into the First Goalscorer market, where Rooney himself is 13/5 favourite to open proceedings, while his team mates Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck and Dimitar Berbatov are all in the pecking order behind him at around 4/1. So great coverage and value there, as well as in the Correct Score Market for Blackburn v Man Utd betting, where a 2-0 win for United is trading as favourite at 6/1. So well worth taking the coverage on your betting with Paddy Power, who offer a generous £50 free bet to new customers. New customers with Paddy Power will get their first stake matched with a free bet, up to the maximum value of £50, giving you some great free betting cash to get started with.
Blackburn v Manchester United Betting Odds
Blackburn to win: 8/1 at Bet365
Draw: 4/1 at Bet Victor
Manchester United to win: 2/5 at Paddy Power
Blackburn boss Steve Kean has been appreciative of Sir Alex Ferguson’s support through his troubled times this season, where Blackburn fans were turning against him. How ironic would it be if Kean went and upset Ferguson’s title plans with a victory over the Red Devils on Monday Blackburn do need the win of course, as they continue to fight against relegation, but at least they have found a little bit of form lately, giving themselves a strong chance of survival. Blackburn saw QPR, Bolton and Wigan all win, so there is just one point separating four teams who are looking to get away from the remaining two relegation spots, with Wolves looking dead in water at the foot of the table. Blackburn of course did pull off that totally unexpected and improbable win at Old Trafford earlier in the season by a 3-2 scoreline.
Rovers have won two of their last three games now in the league, but lost their last outing against Bolton. At Ewood Park, Rovers are unbeaten in their last three, winning two and picking up a draw against Aston Villa. However, this is Manchester United were are talking about and form against them can usually get thrown out of the win. Rovers have scored 1.46 goals on average at home this season, while they have conceded 1.8 per game. They are in the trouble they are in because they have won just five at home this season, and three of those wins have come in their last five home matches. So there has been some fight from them, and Kean has been benefiting from fielding a settled side because of a fit squad.
Tip: Wayne Rooney has scored four in his last five games against Blackburn and is 13/5 in the First Goalscorer Market
However, can decent home form against a relegation side stand up to the power of Manchester United? Rio Ferdinand could come back into the line up as he is fit again, but they are still missing Nani. United are just in formidable form, winning eight of their last nine matches. It has been an incredible, run and one worthy of taking the title. They have won their last three on the road and have scored ten goals in those three matches. Wayne Rooney has been in blistering form, netting seventeen goals in seventeen matches now for his club. They haven’t lost in their last ten league games now, and with a two point lead now over Manchester City at the top of the table, a win on Monday should really put the title firmly in their grasp.
United are just in incredible scoring mode at the moment, and they have goals in them, especially against weak defences. Manchester United’s defence has also been standing up, with three clean sheets in a row as well. Having racked up eleven wins from fifteen away matches in the Premier League this season, it is hard to see them losing. They are averaging 2.27 goals away from home this season and are conceding on average less than a goal per game. The masters of the Premier League have ramped things up again, with Ferguson using of all of their experience to guide them home. They are unlikely to throw points away in a match like this.

Online bookmaker Paddy Power are running some good football betting coverage on Man City v Blackburn betting in the Premier League this weekend. Manchester City put in a comprehensive display to crush FC Porto in the Champions League midweek, and now they turn their attentions back to their Premier League quest. Manchester City of course have been flexing their attacking muscles for the large part of the season thanks to the likes of Sergio Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Mario Balotelli in their ranks. They could be getting Carlos Tevez back into a shirt soon after the Argentinean apologised and is trying to make amends with the club. Because there are usually plenty of goals flying around in Manchester City matches, online bookmaker Paddy Power have decided to run the gauntlet and launch a Money Back Special for the visit of struggling Blackburn. If there are four or more goals in the Man City v Blackburn match on Saturday, then Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast bets placed on the match. This provides superb Man City v Blackburn betting coverage on the match, and will let you dip into the First Goalscorer Market, where Sergio Aguero is 3/1 favourite to open the scoring, with team mates Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko trading at an equal 7/2 behind him in the market. Blackburn’s Yakubu is the best option on them at a price of 12/1 in the Man City v Blackburn betting First Goalscorer market. The Paddy Power Money Back Special also means that there is good coverage in the Correct Score market for the match, where a comfortable Man City 2-0 win fetches a price of 6/1.
Popular online bookmaker Paddy Power offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account with them. The bookie will match the value of your first stake on a new account with a free bet up to the maximum value of £50. This generous welcome bonus offer gives new customers some great free betting cash to get started with on their new account.

When the two sides met earlier in the season in the Premier League, there were four goals in the match, with City running out 4-0 winners at Ewood Park with goals from Johnson, Balotelli, Nasri and Savic. Manchester City have now rolled out five wins in their last six league matches, and have a 100% home record at the Etihad Stadium this season. City take a two point lead at the top of the table over rivals Manchester City and will look to at least maintain that advantage. While City are chasing silverware at the top of the table, there is a different story for Blackburn Rovers, who continue to struggle and continue to be threatened with relegation. They are fourth from the bottom going into the weekend’s matches, but are just two points off the bottom. They gave themselves a bit of a lifeline in their last league matches, edging out QPR in a 3-2 victory. That has been their only win in their last four Premier League matches now, and they have only won one match away from home all season. While you have to take into account Manchester City’s firepower when it comes to the Paddy Power Money Back special for Man City v Blackburn betting, but also the amount of goals in Blackburn’s matches. There was five in their last match against QPR and eight in their match before that against Arsenal. The chances of there being four or more goals in the game is pretty fair when all things are weighed up in this title chaser v relegation battler match up.

Premier League Betting
Blackburn Rovers have to be looking for much better than last season. It was a strange season for Rovers, with Sam Allardyce getting the boot when new owners took over, only for caretaker boss Steve Kean to take over full time after a solid stint in charge. One of the most interesting things about Blackburn Premier League betting is seeing what direction they actually go in. Will they bide their time and make their youthful enterprises the back bone of their team and avoid the temptation of over paying for experienced veterans? If they avoid the latter then they should be ok. There is a lot of work to do at Ewood Park, because they have been going backwards, and they need to somehow shake off that battling image and starting getting known for their style of football. The basics are there, but they need to be guided by a very steady and very firm hand. Of course, a lot of success will come down to finances, and while many were expecting a summer splash at Ewood Park, there has been an air of caution, but perhaps some very wish, shrewd dealings which will pay off in the long term.
Well, Blackburn have been chasing young Scot Duncan Goodwillie from Dundee United to try and bolster their ranks, but there has not been much movement. This is all a little surprising to be honest, because when the new owner came in, they were very clear about having a direction in which they wanted to take the club. The new Venky owners wanted Champions League in four years, and they nearly ended up with Championship football instead. That was after somewhat bizarrely gave Steve Kean the full time managerial position, which turned into a bit of disaster, as they only just avoided relegation. The owners said they would bide their time in handing out the managerial position, but you felt that there may be someone more established coming in, as opposed to someone testing the waters for the first time. Maybe they saw it as a brave move, but Kean won’t have a lot of time to turn things around next season. Despite selling off prize asset Phil Jones to Manchester United, Blackburn have not gone out and splashed out big in the transfer market, which is something they need. They have targeted some younger talent in Ruben Rochina and Mauro Formica, so perhaps they are looking to build a future with youth and in playing a better style of football.
Last Season: 15th
Finished fifteenth in the league last year, and was seriously flirting with relegation. There has to be more to come from them, and it will start at the back. Yes, they had Phil Jones, but there is still enough solidity in defence to stand tall again and keep enough out to give them plenty of chances to pick up points. They were let down badly by some poor attacking play and poor finishing. They need to be more adventurous but did pull out the results when they needed them most, going four matches unbeaten in the run in. Four points above relegation was enough, but nowhere near the standing where the owners want them to be.
2011/12 Blackburn Rovers PRemier League Betting Projection:
What Blackburn have going for them is a very good defence, and with Paul Robinson between the sticks, there is a high degree of competency there. Now, looking at Blackburn, things may not be as dire as last season suggested, as there is promise there. Yes you want to see just a little mature creativity coming from the midfield, and that is where they need their youngsters, the ones they have and the ones coming in to step up. This is a matter of youth over experience to push Blackburn forward. They also need to find a way to score goals as they have not go a lot in them. Jason Roberts and Nikola Kalinic struggled last year, but you can take a step backwards and blame the midfield for a lot that. There is a lot of trust to be placed in Kean and to get him to take the team forward playing youthful, enterprise football. The stodgy, slow football they played last season is going to see them in trouble otherwise. Really need to splash some cash and bring in a quality striker and they will immediately look better. Fifteenth in the league was terrible for them, and so will look for a mid table finish this year. It will be a step in the right direction.

Football Betting Prediction: Mid Table
Premier League Start: Blackburn 1, Everton 0
The Strengths: Finished in a credible 10th spot last season, but were far too unpredictable to expect them to push for a top six finish. After a poor start to the season, it’s actually to the credit of Sam Allardyce, who was missing for some of the season because of heart troubles, that he turned them around. Allardyce is naturally a strength for the Lancashire club, because of his passion and knowledge for the game. Granted the flair of his style of management and tactics is not up there along with the likes of Arsene Wenger, but Allardyce usually gets the job done. He’s tough, hard working northerner, and that is what Blackburn are. His way is his way, and while it upsets other managers who like to think themselves advocates of the beautiful game, Allardyce builds a strong, physical team which usually has plenty of aerial power. Blackburn go with a more direct approach and that is what has worked for them. The club will have known what to expect from Allardyce when hiring him, so they can have no qualms. The problem is, can he take the club upwards if he gets his hands on transfer funds, or will he look to strengthen the chances of survival only, instead of being brave and trying to lure technically gifted, creative footballers. However, they are in the midst of takeover talks and there is promise of £100 million being put up for new players. By the time the deal would be done though, that wouldn’t be any good until the January transfer window for Big Sam to go shopping.
The Weaknesses: They couldn’t take their game on the road, as it just didn’t work for them, so take that into consideration in your Blackburn football betting strategy. Allardyce needs to find a way to give a better account of themselves when they travel, and that will back up their good home form very well. The trouble is, the way Blackburn play, is that they concede a lot of the ball, and when you do that at Stamford Bridge or The Emirates then you are going to be in trouble. Arsenal scored six at home against them, Chelsea five and Manchester City four. Away form is just not good enough to be anything more than a solid and dependable mid table scrapping team. They don’t look as if they really have enough goals in them either home or away, but their defence is solid enough to keep lower opposition at bay. As much as he is a strength, Allardyce could be a weakness, if Blackburn want progressive football to go forward with.
Blackburn Betting Home: You can get behind Blackburn with some confidence, as teams don’t like going to Ewood Park because they know that they are going to be in for a physical battle. Glamour teams like Chelsea and Manchester United don’t like that, especially not on a cold midweek night, and that’s where the style of Allardyce pays off. They can bombard teams physically and make nuisances of themselves, and it helped them to suffer just three home defeats last season, for a decent 53% win percentage at home. Could carry a little more weight in the goal scoring department (averaging 1.47 home goals scored), but they make a decent enough home bet nonetheless.
Blackburn Betting Away: Not worth the risk in backing too often. Blackburn had a 16% win percentage away from home last year, with just three road victories. Eleven defeats away from Ewood Park is not good enough if the team really has ambitions, and not worth the punt in your football betting on the surface of things.
Blackburn Best Football Betting Stat: 0-0 Score Prediction. Yes, seven of their eleven drawn matches were actually scoreless draws. Their mediocrity in the stats, highlights why there are a mid-table team.
