In-form Blackburn Rovers welcome Birmingham City to Ewood Park in EFL Championship action this Saturday afternoon. Tony Mowbray’s Rovers are one of the form sides in the division and look like genuine promotion contenders. The Blues are in patchy form, and Lee Bowyer’s boys find themselves languishing in 15th spot at present. Can Blackburn record a fifth successive Championship victory at the weekend? We have the best betting odds and tips.

Blackburn Rovers Preview – Will the Blue and Whites make it five wins on the spin?

Blackburn Rovers are in stunning form right now, winning four on the bounce. Since an embarrassing 7-0 home reverse to Fulham on 3rd November, Rovers have taken 16 points from a possible 18.

Blackburn have shot up to fourth after their excellent run of results. After a 1-1 draw at Bristol City, the Lancashire side have beaten Peterborough United, Stoke City, Preston North End and Bournemouth, with the Blue and Whites scoring eight and conceding none in the process.

Our betting prediction:
Blackburn to win to nil

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 0928 GMT, Friday 17 December)

Blackburn’s stunning form has put them well and truly in the mix for promotion. Tony Mowbray’s boys are just six points behind leaders Fulham and, more importantly, five points clear of seventh-place Coventry City. Will their fine form continue with another win this weekend?

Birmingham City Preview – Can the Blues upset in-form Rovers?

Lee Bowyer’s Birmingham City have had a mixed season up until now. The Blues have won seven, drawn six and lost nine of their 22 Championship fixtures. After last weekend’s results, City are in 15th with 27 points to their name.

Bowyer’s boys head to Ewood Park having lost three of their last six in the league. They were well on their way to a much-needed three points last weekend, but City squandered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Cardiff City at St Andrew’s, with the Welsh team’s equaliser coming in injury time.
