Blackburn to win and over 2.5 goals (3/1)

However, Reading are quite the opposite, having lost three of their last four and just two points above the bottom three.

Sam Gallagher to score anytime (7/4)

Gallagher managed to get back on the scoresheet on Tuesday.

The striker is Rovers’ second top scorer with seven goals.

They desperately need him to step up with Ben Brereton Díaz sidelined.
