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.

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.
