Blackburn are battling hard to secure automatic promotion from League One and it will be a surprise if they do not see off mid-table Bradford at Ewood Park.

Rovers have only dropped two points from their last six matches – and that was via an entertaining 2-2 draw with title favourites Wigan.

Tony Mowbray’s side can go top with a win here and appeal at 6/5 to lead at half-time and full-time in our Blackburn vs Bradford betting tips.

That bet would have been landed in six of their last seven wins!

A Look At Blackburn Rovers’ Betting Odds

Blackburn actually went five points clear at the summit when beating Blackpool 3-0 here on their most recent outing, but a break of almost three weeks has seen them slip down to third.

Former West Brom, Celtic and Middlesbrough head coach Mowbray has been around long enough to know how to keep his players focused during that lay-off, though.

He told the Lancashire Telegraph: “We want to finish right at the top of the tree – it looks like a three-horse race for two places and we have to have the belief that we can get there.”

Adam Armstrong was a shrewd January loan signing from Newcastle, with a brace against Blackpool taking his tally to seven goals in as many games.

Bradley Dack, Danny Graham and Charlie Mulgrew are all in double figures for the season, so there is plenty of firepower in this team.

Looking at the Blackburn vs Bradford odds, we like 5/4 for a home win and over 2.5 goals in the game.

A Look At Bradford City’s Betting Odds

Bradford are struggling to get back into the play-offs this term, with City currently in 10th place, four points off sixth.

The Bantams were in a much better position when winning at Fleetwood on New Year’s Day, but their next 10 fixtures yielded just two points.

Simon Grayson celebrated his first win as manager with last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat of Gillingham, but that wasn’t an overly convincing performance.

However, City have still netted a healthy 27 goals in 19 away matches, so 12/5 for a home win and both teams to score is a value pick for our Blackburn vs Bradford betting tips.
