Our recommended bet for Saturday’s clash at Ewood Park comes in the form of a draw between Blackburn and Birmingham, featuring a goal from Ben Brereton Diaz.
A £10 wager for such an outcome will secure you a return of £100 with Betway.
Ewood Park will act as the venue of Saturday, October 22nd, as Blackburn Rovers go in search of a three-point haul which could see them reclaim sole ownership of top spot in the Championship table.
Standing in the way of Jon Dahl Tomasson’s troops? A resurgent Birmingham City.
Blackburn, of course, have proven one of the stories of the season thus far in England’s 2nd tier.
A remarkable record of nine wins and seven defeats sees Saturday’s hosts stand as the only outfit in the division yet to draw a single one of their fixtures to date.
The inconsistency of those around them, in turn, has seen Tomasson and co. secure a share of the Championship’s summit, behind Queens Park Rangers owing only to goal difference.
Despite being dominated when it came to possession, Blackburn’s most recent outing, earlier this week, gave rise to a 3rd win in four.
This came as strikes on the part of star man Brereton Diaz, now the Championship’s joint-top scorer, and Scott Wharton, proved enough to put Sunderland to the sword by two goals to nil.
Making it 12 points from an available 15, though, will be easier said than done for Saturday’s hosts.
This comes with upcoming opponents Birmingham having looked vastly improved of late.
The Blues, all told, are in the midst of a run of just one defeat in eight, with back-to-back victories over Bristol City and Hull City having been followed last time out by a credible point, too.
A meeting with high-flying Burnley saw Scott Hogan’s finish ten minutes from time cancel out Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s opener, en route to an eventual 1-1 stalemate.
Such efforts, in turn, have seen John Eustace’s men climb comfortable clear of the relegation scrap, and to within four points of the promotion playoff places.
We at 101 are therefore backing a hard-fought contest at Ewood Park this weekend, with the potential to culminate in hosts Blackburn sharing the spoils for the first time all season.
