What Trueform says for Blackburn vs Leeds
Blackburn are a touch inconsistent but our Trueform chart suggests they could be a value bet to beat Leeds if on their best behaviour.
Rovers have shown they can upset more fancied teams by edging out Brentford and Stoke in the Championship and they gave Premier League high-flyers Bournemouth a scare in the EFL Cup.
This will be a tough test, but 23/10 for Tony Mowbray’s side to relish being on TV and claim another notable scalp is our first Blackburn vs Leeds prediction.
A Look At Blackburn Rovers’ Betting Odds
Blackburn went into the international break buoyed by a brave 1-0 triumph away to local rivals Bolton that pushed them up to 10th in the table.
Bradley Dack’s eighth goal of the season after 22 minutes separated the sides, while David Raya made two fine saves to protect the lead and Charlie Mulgrew cleared a header off the line.
Mowbray enthused: “I talk a lot about the spirit and it was there on show, digging in, winning headers, getting the second ball.
“I’m just delighted to get the win and a clean sheet. Results like this feed the beast if you want to give it a name; their togetherness, spirit and camaraderie at times is unbreakable.”
Mowbray has made a career out of building such battle-hardened teams and Dack’s productivity from midfield is giving Rovers a real attacking edge.
Looking at the Blackburn vs Leeds odds, all of the home team’s four league wins have been by a one-goal margin, so 15/4 they manage that again here is another tempting price.
A Look At Leeds United’s Betting Odds
Leeds got off to a flying start this term and are still well placed to push for promotion in third, five points above their next opponents.
However, Marcelo Bielsa will be a touch concerned by his side’s lack of prowess up front of late.
United have failed to net more than once in seven of their last eight fixtures, drawing 1-1 at home to Brentford before the international break.
The Yorkshire giants needed an 88th-minute header from Pontus Jansson to earn a point from that game.
“It was a fair result,” remarked Bielsa. “We could have lost the game, or won the game, but it wouldn’t be fair to say that we were close to winning the game.”
United’s only two wins in the last seven league games came against teams in the relegation zone, so we’re prepared to oppose them at decent odds.
Let’s finish off our Blackburn vs Leeds betting tips by taking 11/1 for a 2-1 home win.
