Blackburn Rovers vs Cambridge United top free betting tips
Our Blackburn Rovers vs Cambridge United prediction is for this to be a fairly comfortable contest for the Championship side. Blackburn is in the seventeenth in the Championship while Cambridge is in the eighteenth in League One.
Four of Blackburn's previous five matches have ended in defeat for the Lancashire side with just one point picked up in that time, a 2-2 draw against bottom-of-the-table Rotherham United while opponents, Cambridge United, have won three of their previous eight matches, against Fleetwood Town, Blackpool and Exeter, the other matches were four defeats with one draw.
Correct outcome prediction: Blackburn Rovers to Win
For this prediction, we have gone with a win for Blackburn. Despite struggling in the Championship, Blackburn does have and should have enough quality to ensure they progress through to the fourth round of the FA Cup. Cambridge has won just one league match all season when playing away from home.
Both teams to score prediction: No
Despite Blackburn's poor defensive showings in the Championship, they welcome a team to Ewood Park who have scored less than one away goal per league match this season. So our prediction is both teams to fail to score.
Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Blackburn Rovers
Blackburn Rovers face a team who concede almost two goals and score less than one goal when playing away from home while Blackburn scores 1.5 home goals per match but does tend to concede often. This time, however, we predict a clean sheet for Blackburn.
