Brentford v Blackburn Betting Tips

Brentford have nothing left to play for this season other than trying to remain in the top ten to finish with. It’s been a pretty solid season overall from them. Blackburn meanwhile needs at least a point to try and save themselves from the drop. Brentford have gone W11 D5 L6 at home this season in the league and are carrying good home form at the moment. They have put a four-match winning streak on the board at home at the moment, scoring at least two goals in each of those as well. A Brentford 2-0 correct score at William Hill returns a price of 12/1, while a 2-1 victory for them comes in at 9/1. Jota has scored four goals in his last two home games for Barnsley and is a 21/20 anytime goalscorer option with Lasse Vibe at 6/5 alongside Blackburn’s Sam Gallagher. Both teams to score at William Hill for this one fetches a price of 1/2. Rovers have gone W2 L2 in their last four away games at Brentford so there is hope for them. The won their last visit to Brentford 1-0 and how badly they need a repeat of that. Blackburn starts third from the bottom because of a worse goal difference of just one, to that of Nottingham Forest. So if Rovers win this, Forest would have to do enough to stay ahead on goal difference while it would leave Birmingham needing a win to stay safe also. So which one of those three will end up taking the drop? Blackburn have collected a W2 D2 record in their last four league games and have actually lost only three of their last fourteen played (W4 D7) it is just the lack of wins which is actually hurting them. Under 2.5 goals in the game at William Hill is a quote of 5/4 and five of Blackburn's last six league games have gone under the goal line. Blackburn have won just one of their last 13 away games in the Championship and have won just three times on the road this term away from Ewood Park (D7 L12).

Brentford v Blackburn Betting Odds

Brentford 7/5, Draw 12/5, Blackburn 15/8

Brentford v Blackburn Predictions

Brentford home win: Even though they have nothing to play for in this game, Brentford are carrying the home form that could deny Blackburn their place in the Championship next season. Home win.

Fulham v Blackburn Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 14th March 2017

Championship Betting
Fulham v Blackburn Betting Preview - Championship 14th March 7.45pm An important game for the Cottagers on Tuesday night in the Championship. They will want to keep their great run of form going in this one because a victory would see them climb up into the top six, therefore the play off spots, at the expense of Sheffield Wednesday. So a huge incentive for Fulham at Craven Cottage in the midweek action. Blackburn are still fighting for their Championship life, but they have managed to put together a five match unbeaten streak of form and a precious point for them would see them climb out of the relegation zone. Pressure is on for both of these. Online betting site Coral offer a Bet & Get Club for their customers.

Fulham v Blackburn Betting Tips

Fulham have been going so well lately and now they firmly have the top six in their sights. Fulham are on a seven match unbeaten streak of form in the Championship now and they excelled on the weekend in a tough game. They went to St James Park to face champions-elect Newcastle and the Cottagers rolled out a 3-1 win to complete the league double over the Magpies this season. That is a W5 D2 record they have posted now in their last seven second-tier games and they are five unbeaten at Craven Cottage (W4 D1). Fulham have posted a W8 D6 L4 record this season on home soil but they are buzzing at the moment. The Cottagers have netted at least two goals in six of their last seven games and four of those games in that sequence they scored exactly three goals in. They landed a 1-0 win at Blackburn earlier in the season and a Fulham 1-0 correct score at Coral in this one is trading at a price of 15/2 Fulham landed a 2-1 home win over Blackburn in last season's’ Championship match up too and they have kept only one clean sheet in their last ten against Rovers now. So it could be worth a punt on both teams to score at Coral for a price of 4/6. A Fulham 2-1 correct score is a 7/1 option which may have appeal because of that. In the anytime goalscorer market, Chris Martin is a 6/5 outright favourite to net in the game. 67% of Fulham’s home games this season have gone over the 2.5 goal line so you have a price of 3/5 at Coral on over 2.5 goals. So a big incentive here for Fulham, who can see their great run of form rewarded with a place in the play off zone if they collect three points in this one. They are 23 points better off than they were at this stage of last season’s Championship campaign. But Blackburn are showing some resilient form at the moment with a five match unbeaten streak. They have suffered just the one defeat in their last eight in the Championship now and just a point out of this trip to London will see them climb out of the drop zone. However, they are failed to win any of their last eight away games in the second tier, but have drawn three of their last four on the road (L1). Blackburn have recorded a W1 D1 L2 record in their last four visits to Craven Cottage in the league. They will need all their resilience in this one against the in-form Cottagers. 13 of Blackburn’s 16 defeats in the league this season have been by a one goal margin only and a a Fulham to win by a one goal margin at Coral is trading at a price of 11/4. Danny Graham is a 12/5 anytime goalscorer option with Sam Gallagher at the 2/1 mark for the visitors.

Fulham v Blackburn Betting Odds

Fulham 8/15, Draw 7/2, Blackburn 11/2

Fulham v Blackburn Predictions

This will probably end up being a pretty tight contest then but it is hard to ignore the form that Fulham are showing at the moment especially on home soil. They are valued to go and win this by a one goal margin against a Rovers side who are in resilient form at the moment. Well worth a punt on both teams to score as well.

Burton v Blackburn Championship Predictions & Betting Odds – 24th February 2017

Championship Betting
Burton v Blackburn Betting Preview - Championship 24th February 7.45pm This should be an interesting Friday night affair in the Championship. Blackburn gave Manchester United a decent run for their money in their FA Cup tie last weekend, but ultimately slipped to defeat. They have to focus back on trying to stay in the Championship now and this is a massive game for them. They start the game six points behind Burton but they have two games in hand over them. Burton have improved drastically lately to move clear of the drop zone and if they take three points in his one, they could claw their way even further from safety and leave Rovers in a lot of pain. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of. Place a pre-match correct score, scorecast or half time/full time wager on a match and if the game ends goalless then the bookmaker will refund lost stakes on the selected markets with a free bet.

Burton v Blackburn Betting Tips

This is a survival scrap down near the foot of the Championship table. Burton are just two places above the relegation zone in this one but they do have something of a healthy five point cushion as it stands. However, that’s not the entire picture because two of the four sides beneath them, including Blackburn, have played fewer games than Burton have. Rovers have two games in hand over Burton actually so there is still some pressure on. Burton put together a poor run of form between December and January which saw them go W1 L7, but they have responded better with a W3 D1 L2 record on the board in their last six played. So they have been showing some fight as highlighted in a recent home win against play-off challengers Norwich which was in their last home fixture in the Championship. A Burton 2-1 correct score at Bet365 is a price of 17/2 and that has been the scoreline in each of Burton's last five wins in the league (home and away). There was a 2-2 draw between these two back in August in the Championship and this one to go over 2.5 goals as well is a price of 13/10 at Bet365 and that is because just 38% of Burton's home games this season have gone over the goal line. But then Burton are on a nine match league streak at home without a clean sheet so Blackburn will have some opportunities in this one you feel. Both teams to score at Bet365 is a price of 5/6. So there is still pressure on both Burton as well as Blackburn at the moment and Burton have a hit and miss home record of W7 D2 L7 in the Championship this season and they are the second lowest scoring side in the division. Cauley Woodrow and Michael Kightly have both scored in each of Burton’s last two home games and they are a price of 21/10 and 5/1 respectively in the Bet365 anytime goalscorer market. Burton have lost five of their last seven on home soil, and this is a test for them. After putting up a good scrap in a 2-1 home loss against Lancashire rivals Manchester United in the FA Cup on the weekend, Blackburn have to focus back in on trying to survive the drop. Rovers have won just one of their last six and just two of their last thirteen (W2 D4 L7). Out on the road they haven’t won any of their last six games now (D2 L4) and both draws in that sequence were a 1-1 return which is a price of 5/1 in the Bet365 Correct Score market. They have been scoring because they have netted exactly one goal in all but one of their last eight games in the Championship, so there is reason to believe that they will make something of a breakthrough. Sam Gallagher is a 9/5 anytime goalscorer option for them. Blackburn have a pretty shocking record of just W2 D3 L10 away from home in the second tier this season and they have yet to be leading at half time in any game away from Ewood Park so far. So look for a half time draw to be on the board, but because of Burton’s less than stellar home form, expect this to be tight at the 90 minute mark too.

Burton v Blackburn Betting Odds

Burton 13/10, Draw 5/2, Blackburn 12/5

Burton v Blackburn Predictions

You would have to go with the improved form of Burton in this one and three points would be huge for them because of having played a couple more games than Rovers have already. Blackburn could only manage a draw at the hapless Rotherham recently out on the road and they aren’t likely to muster up enough to put a win on the board in this one. So you will have to just side with the home team coming up with maximum points and there is value in them in the match outright to do so.  

Paddy Power offer Man Utd 6/1 enhanced odds to beat Blackburn

Paddy Power
Reigning FA Cup champions Manchester United will look to make safe passage through to the quarter finals of this season’s competition as they face off against Blackburn in a Lancashire derby on Sunday. This will be Championship opposition for the third tie in a row for the Red Devils, having beaten both Reading and Wigan by a 4-0 scoreline already. With Blackburn in a massive fight for survival in the Championship, this looks as if it could be a routine fixture for the Red Devils, even if they rest players having gone through a UEFA Europa League win over St Etienne on Thursday night. Manchester United have not lost out on the road against a lower league opponent in the FA Cup since the 1983/84 season and they have lost only one of their last nine away games in all competitions as well this term. The Red Devils are also running on a six match unbeaten streak at Ewood Park as well against Rovers, so there is heavy favouritism for the Premier League side in this one as they take on the second tier strugglers. Right now, Rovers have much bigger concerns and issues than beating Jose Mourinho's men in an FA Cup tie.

Blackburn v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th February 2017

Manchester United
Blackburn v Manchester United Betting Preview - FA Cup 19th February 4.15pm This is a Lancashire derby in the fifth round of the FA Cup and it re-ignites the memories of those great Premier League battles we would see between the two sides. Blackburn are on a six match winless streak of form against Manchester United at Ewood Park and are going as underdogs for this one. Can Rovers raise their game to claim one of the biggest scalps left in the competition? It would offer some light away from their relegation issues in the Championship. Even though United have had a busy week with a Thursday night UEFA Europa League game, Mourinho’s men will be expected to be standing in the quarter finals. Online betting site Bet365 offer great 0-0 bore draw insurance on matches which you can take advantage of.

Blackburn v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Tips

These two have been involved in some good scraps down the line so it’s good to see them squaring off against each other again. It doesn't look as if there will be any league meetings between the two in the near future anyway, as Rovers are stuck in the relegation zone in the Championship after a disappointing season on the board. They have a big struggle to get out of there and sustain their position in the second tier. Rovers have the second worst defensive record in the second tier this season and that immediately makes them highly vulnerable for this FA Cup clash against one of the best sides in the country. Rovers, who are heavy underdogs on home soil, have only claimed three clean sheets in their last 11 home games in all competitions, so it is likely that are going to concede in this one. Both teams to score at Bet365 for the FA Cup fixture is a quote of 19/20. Rovers aren’t exactly a prolific side and they may struggle to make an impact against an efficient United side. Rovers though, have scored in each of their last ten games in all competitions. Rovers set themselves up for this fifth round clash having beaten QPR and Blackpool in the previous rounds. Not the toughest of opposition for them but this one on Sunday is and they may well get badly exposed in the tie. This is the first meeting between the two Lancashire clubs since the 2011/12 Premier League season when they shared away wins from the two match ups. Blackburn though have won just one of their last 13 games against United in all competitions. The 1984/85 season was the last time that two clashed in the FA Cup and United won 2-0 at Ewood Park on that occasion. There is a 6/1 quote on a Man Utd 2-0 correct score at Bet365 for this one. Rovers though are actually head in a W4 D2 L2 record from their eight previous FA Cup matches played. Danny Graham is a 3/1 punt for Rovers in the anytime goalscorer market with Sam Gallagher at 5/2. Rovers have conceded at least two goals in seven of their last nine games against Manchester United and over 2.5 goals at Bet365 for Sunday's game is a quote of 4/6. The Red Devils had an extra game on Thursday night as they faced St Etienne in the Europa League. But that isn’t likely to have a great bearing on the outcome of the FA Cup tie at Ewood Park for them. They are going along in decent form out on the road to suggest that they are going to be strong enough to see off the Championships struggles. Manchester United have posted a good W6 D2 L1 record in their last nine away from Old Trafford in all competitions. They have taken three clean sheets in their last five out on the road as well. You have a price of 6/5 at Bet365 on Manchester United to win to nil which should have some nice appeal. Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a 4/6 anytime goalscorer option with Marcus Rashford at 5/4. So far in the FA Cup this season United have posted 4-0 wins over Championship sides Reading and Wigan, moving through easily. The challenge that awaits them at Ewood Park in their short trip across the county, isn’t a tough one and Mourinho’s men will be expected to be in the quarter final draw.

Blackburn v Manchester United FA Cup Betting Odds

Blackburn 15/2, Draw 4/1, Manchester United 1/3

Blackburn v Manchester United FA Cup Predictions

Would look for Manchester United to get through this one without too many scares really. They may be uncomfortable because of a gritty battle that Rovers will put up, but the Red Devils can edge their way through in this one. Rovers don't have a defence which can be trusted at all and that will ultimately be their downfall in this one, but have a shot at both teams to score as Manchester United bank the win.  

Do a Leicester – Premier League History

Cyril's Betting Advice
It's been a very long time since there was an intruder into the Premiership who might just take the title. The Premiership has generally been a carve-up mainly concerning Man. Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea. Although, of late, Man. City have shown more than a passing interest. The only other team to earn a mention in the leagues history is Blackburn Rovers who did a "Leicester" in 1994/95 season when they astounded everyone, except their manager, Kenny Dalglish, when they took the top spot. Going back in time and including the old Football League there was hardly ever an upset. e.g. a team from the bottom half of the previous season's league table winning the title. Those that do stand out are very few indeed. For me there are only two which are memorable. In the old Football League in 1960/61 Ipswich Town were promoted as Division 2 Champions. They then did the unthinkable and won the First Division Title at the first attempt. This gave them entry into the European Cup in which they won their first tie 14 - 1 on aggregate versus Maltese side Floriana. They were then seen off by A.C. Milan. Their glory days in the First Division didn't last for too long either. They finished their second season in the top division just four points above the relegated sides. The following season saw them relegated as wooden spoonists. The next interlopers of note, were Blackburn Rovers. They found themselves in the newly formed Premier League having won via the "play-offs". By this time they had a new chairman, Jack Walker who had installed Kenny Dalglish as manager. They had been quietly plied their trade in the new Premier League. Finishing fourth in the inaugural season 13 points behind champions Man. Utd. The following season again ended in Man. Utd being crowned Champions and just 8 points behind in second place was Blackburn Rovers. The 1994/95 season saw them finish ahead of Man. Utd, depriving them of a third successive title by 0ne point. From this high position they soon found themselves floundering finishing 7th, 13th and then 6th, before being relegated (19th) in the 1998/99 season. They returned to the Premiership for the 2001/02 season after finishing seccond behind Fulham. The 2002/03 season saw their best position (6th) during their eleven year spell before once more being relegated. Apart from that one season their form was never realy more than moderate. Man. Ciry were promoted from the First Division at the end of 2001/02 season. However they didn't make too much of an impact until the 2009/10 season whenthey finished 5th. Thereafter they didn't act like intruders as they finished third the following season and then finished as Premiership Champions 2011/12. This was folloewd by another second place and then they won their second Premiership title in 2013/14. Last season they again slipped to second place. So now we cannot really call them intruders. With all the money now floating around the Premiership clubs it remains to be seen whether any other non-fashionable sides make any kind of breakthrough. The likes of Arsenal cannot be ruled out, of course, but will we see a resurgent Tottenham hotspurs or Liverpool make their presence felt in the coming seasons? Man. utd must always be considered too but only time will tell what damage has been done to them since Ferguson left them pretty much high and dry.

Blackburn v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds 8th April 2015

Football Betting
Blackburn v Liverpool FA Cup Betting Preview Can the Championship claim themselves another Premier League scalp in this season’s FA Cup? This would be the biggest, and with Liverpool losing crucial games in the top flight, which has all but seen their hopes of a top four finish go, can Rovers heap more misery on them? Or can Liverpool respond to their troubles by taking one step closer to some silverware this season? One of the best new features around in the world of online betting is Bet365’s Partial Cash Out option. This dynamic new feature allows punters to cash out just a part of their active wager (to their own choosing from a sliding scale) while leaving the rest of it running until the conclusion of the game. New customers registering an account with Bet365 can also get up to a free £200 bet as a welcome bonus too!

Blackburn v Liverpool Betting Tips

The Reds have certainly suffered some setbacks lately. Crucial losses in the top flight against Manchester United and Arsenal have seen them in danger of finishing the season short of a Champions League place. So high importance on getting the job done now against Blackburn so that they can at least try and finish the season on a high with some silverware. History suggests that they will do it as they have progressed from three of their last four FA Cup ties against Blackburn Rovers (1979, 1983 and 1991). Not only that, in 15 of the last 16 occasions that the Reds have been in the FA Cup quarter final, they have made it through to the final four, so the stats are on their side. Daniel Sturridge has netted 10 goals in his last 13 FA Cup starts and is running as a 5/6 quote in the anytime goalscorer market. They need to be far sharper than they were at Anfield against Rovers, as Liverpool only managed to get four of their 22 efforts at goal in that game on target. Liverpool have already come through three away games in this season's FA Cup and all of those victories were by a 2-1 scoreline, an option you can back in the Bet365 Correct score market for a price of 7/1. May not be a bad punt at all. The question here simply, is whether or not Liverpool can shake off their setbacks and get dialled in for the for trip to Ewood Park? Blackburn have been putting together some patchy form with a W3 D1 L2 record in their last six played. Worryingly perhaps is the fact that they have lost their last two home fixtures, both by a one goal margin. Rovers have already seen off Swansea and Stoke at Ewood Park by convincing scorelines this season and they were victorious on their last FA Cup tie in 2000, prior to this sixth round tie. However, both of the previous replays between Blackburn and Liverpool in the FA Cup have gone the way of the Merseysiders (Round 3 in 1950 and 1991). Blackburn have been eliminated in each of their last three replays at this stage of the competition (1962, 1993, 2013) too. Gary Bowyer’s men have conceded exactly one goal in their last four FA Cup games at Ewood Park as well.

Blackburn v Liverpool Betting Odds

Liverpool 4/6, Draw 3/1, Blackburn 3/1

Blackburn v Liverpool Predictions

The weight of history is leaning on the side of Liverpool to come through the replay. They have suffered some setbacks but they only conceded one shot on target against Rovers at Anfield, and some clinical finishing would have seen them win that first encounter with ease. The Reds should have enough to get through but look for both teams to score in the match.

Liverpool v Blackburn FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds 8th March 2015

Football Betting
Liverpool v Blackburn Betting Preview With the rest of the FA Cup quarter final ties this season looking really tight, punters will be eyeing up Liverpool as a banker on the weekend. The Reds are heavy odds on favourites to put themselves in the semi finals of the competition. Even though Blackburn have seen off two Premier League opponents already in this season’s Cup, is it too big of an ask for them to topple the Reds at Anfield?

Fantastic acca betting promotion and well worth jumping all over. What’s better than free money!?

Liverpool v Blackburn Betting Tips

So this looks the most clear cut tie of this weekend’s FA Cup quarter finals. Off the bat though, it may be worth leaning towards both teams to score which is a price of even money at online betting site Paddy Power, because Liverpool have only managed to keep three clean sheets in their last 20 FA Cup games. Liverpool and Blackburn have faced off nine times before in the FA Cup and the head to head is pretty tight, with Rovers progressing on four occasions against Liverpool's five. However, Liverpool have a huge positive stat in FA Cup quarter final ties, because they have made it through on 15 of the last 16 occasions that they have been at this stage. The Reds have netted exactly two goals in each of their last wins in the FA Cup (six 2-1s and two 2-0s) so they should have the goal in them. Daniel Sturridge is a 4/5 favourite quote in the anytime goalscorer market, and the England man has scored 10 goals in his last 12 FA Cup starts. That’s some return. Raheem Sterling, Rickie Lambert and Mario Balotelli are all even money quotes, while a 7/4 flutter on Steven Gerrard will see you backing a man who has scored four goals in six starts against Rovers during his long career. Liverpool are playing well at the moment and have form. They have only lost one of their last 21 games played in all competitions, and they have won six of the last seven. They have won their last five games at Anfield in a row. Liverpool's form is going to be tough for Blackburn to get past. They have claimed Premier League scalps of Stoke and Swansea in making it the final eight, but aren't in red hot form. Since beating Stoke at Ewood Park, they have only won one of their five matches since then (W1 D3 L1) and they look a better home side than they do on the road. Blackburn have won just two of their last fifteen away games in all competitions (W2 D7 L5) and they haven’t managed to record a victory from any of their last eleven trips to Anfield (D4 L7) since their last victory in January 2000. That incidentally was the last time they met in the FA Cup. Rudy Gestede and Jordan Rhodes are both 4/1 quotes in the anytime goalscorer market.

Liverpool v Blackburn Betting Odds

Liverpool 3/10, Draw 5/1, Blackburn 10/1

Liverpool v Blackburn Predictions

The Reds should be comfortable winners in this one. They have tremendous form going at the moment and are playing some good football. They are strong at home and they are going to take some stopping. Blackburn are unlikely to have enough, especially away from Ewood Park, but worth having a crack at both teams to score.

Blackburn v Stoke FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds 14th February 2015

Bojan Krkic (Stoke City)
Blackburn v Stoke Betting Preview Not the easiest of ties for Premier League outfit Stoke to have to deal with. They will already have seen Blackburn knockout top flight opposition in Swansea, and Rovers are in good form at Ewood Park. But the Potters are carrying some decent form of their own at the moment, proving to be a hard side to beat for most opponents they come into contact with. There is 0-0 Bore Draw Insurance available at online betting site Bet365 for all football matches listed there. They will refund losing stakes as a free bet for any wagers placed pre-match on the correct score, scorecast or half time/full time markets if the game ends goalless.

Blackburn v Stoke Betting Tips

Blackburn came through their fourth round FA Cup test by beating Swansea 3-1. Maybe they were helped out with the Premier League outfit going down to ten men for most of the game, but maybe they would have dug out a win regardless. Gary Bowyer’s men are no pushover at Ewood Park and they don’t mind scraping out narrow wins. Remind you of anyone? Yes, that is why this duel with Stoke could produce a long arduous afternoon. Rovers have won their last three home matches now, even though they haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last four at Ewood Park. Both Teams To Score in this FA Cup scrap is an 8/11 option with online bookmaker Bet365. Rovers have recorded W3 D1 L2 form in their last six in all competitions, and the two losses happened outside of Ewood Park. Even though only put in a subs appearance against Swansea, Jordan Rhodes is a huge positive for them and he is a 2/1 quote in the anytime goalscorer market along with teammate Rudy Gestede, who did net in the win over the Swans. The thing which may be suggest to punters that they won’t claim another top flight scalp in this season’s competition, is their head to head form against Stoke, which isn’t good, in fact Rovers are on a seven match winless streak against the Potters. Stoke have avoided defeat in their last three visits to Ewood Park and have posted four clean sheets in their current seven match unbeaten streak against Rovers. The last time the two came together was back in the 2011/12 Premier League, where both teams scored in each match. It all paints a picture of things being very tight and Stoke coming away with a one goal margin win, which is a reasonable 3/1 punt. The Potters won at Rochdale 4-1 in the previous round and they carrying some good overall form at the moment. The only losses that Stoke have suffered in their last ten games were league matches against Arsenal and Man City. No real shame in that, and that does suggest that they will be strong enough to handle a trip to Ewood Park. Peter Crouch is in form, and has scored a goal in each of his last two games, while Jonathan Walters hit four goals in two games recently. Crouch is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option, with Walters a 9/4 shot. The Potters have lost just one of their last five away games in all competitions, should be enough to see them safe.

Blackburn v Swansea FA Cup Betting Tips

Punters may see some value in backing the underdog in this one. Blackburn have lost just two of their last 19 FA Cup home matches at Ewood Park (W13 D4 L2) so have a bit of merit in the match outright here. The last time that they did host the Swans, they took a win as well, which wa in the 2011/12 Premier League season. Rovers have put up a W2 D2 L2 record in their last six played in all competitions, which is exactly the same record that Swansea have put up in their last six. Can’t get much more evenly match than that. Rovers aren’t a prolific goalscoring side by any stretch of the imagination, but solid enough. They have actually scored four goals in each of their last two home games against Swansea. Highly unlikely that they will get near that mark, but they do have Jordan Rhodes, who is in good form and well worth backing in the anytime goalscorer market at online bookmaker Bet365. What backs up Blackburn even more is the fact that the Swans have shipped 13 goals in their last five matches. There is a decent chance for the Championship side here. Swansea were pummeled by Chelsea in the English top flight of course last season, and they have gone nine FA Cup matches without a clean sheet. They just look a little bit vulnerable in this one. Positives for them though is that they have won five of their last six FA Cup ties against lower league opposition, and they have won three of their last four on the road. You don’t see a lot of goals flying around in their trip to Ewood Park on Saturday and while Garry Monk’s men are favourites, they are likely to be pushed very hard.

Blackburn v Swansea Predictions

This is a tempter to have a crack at the underdog. Neither are in great form, but Blackburn’s Jordan Rhodes could be the one to make the difference in the game, as he takes on Swansea’s pretty fragile looking back line at the moment. Not an easy looking afternoon for the Premier League outfit, and worth a punt on a Blackburn Draw No Bet for 6/5 at Bet365.
