A Look at Blackburn’s Betting Odds:

Rovers’ crippling shot-shyness was the source of yet more spilled points at the weekend. They failed to score for the fourth fixture in five and subsequently lost 1-0 to Bristol City. Blackburn’s odds to beat Wolves and remedy that defeat, their third in five games, are 37/20.

Recent home improvements have seen them take seven points from 12 in front of the faithful and victory over the struggling Midlanders is paramount if they are to escape the Championship relegation zone in the near future.

Given Rovers’ difficulties in the final third, anyone intent on backing the hosts is advised to do in tandem with the game producing fewer than three goals. A bet on a Blackburn win and under 2.5 goals pays at 3/1.

A Look at Wolves’ Betting Odds:

Walter Zenga is scooting ahead of his peers at some pace in the Championship sack race and it has been reported defeat at Blackburn will seal his fate. Odds of 27/20 say the Italian masterminds a bacon-saving win at Ewood Park.

Conceding in the first half has been one of Wanderers’ biggest problems on their travels, with all bar one of the ten they’ve leaked on the road coming before the break. Backing more Blackburn goals in the first half is a must at 13/5.
