Two more football tips for today (making four in total). After being so close to huge profits over the last few days, we are hitting the ground running going in to this weekend.
Blackburn Rovers v Middlesbrough
Blackburn have started the season as many would have expected, and sit at the top of the Championship. They will be looking to increase their lead at the top by continuing their 100% home record. After the first 6 games, they have scored in every game so far this season, and it looks likely that this will happen again.
The strength of the Blackburn side can’t be understated, and are likely to maintain their current position at the top of the table and be there or thereabouts for promotion back to the Premier League. Boro have had a mixed start to the season, winning all 3 at home, and losing all three on the road. They will have to raise their game to compete with the quality of Blackburn Rovers this evening, and have scored in their last 5 games, so possess an attacking threat.
It looks likely that there will be goals in this fixture, and we’d give Blackburn a 70-75% chance of winning this fixture (hence the odds on a home win being very good value – suggest a 55% chance of a home win). Our correct score predictions would be 2-1 and 3-1 to the home side.
