Blackburn Rovers vs Leeds United predictions and top betting tips

Blackburn Rovers welcomes Leeds United to Ewood Park for another match from the Championship. Both of these teams are in good form with Blackburn having won three of their previous five matches while Leeds enters this fixture on a six-match unbeaten run in which the club has won five of those six.

Total goals prediction: Over 4.5 Goals

For our first prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that the total number of goals in this fixture will be 4.5 or more. An extremely high goal tally is needed for this tip to come in but it is one we are sure will happen. Blackburn has scored five and conceded five in their previous two matches and also has the league's top scorer in Sammie Szmodics who has scored fourteen times this term while Leeds United is by far the more entertaining side in the league when it comes to offensive play. Leeds has scored three or more goals seven times this season and has been involved in a combined fifty-four goals in just nineteen matches.

Both teams to score prediction: Yes

For our second prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that both teams will find the back of the net. Leeds has failed to keep a clean sheet in all of their previous four matches with just one being kept in their last nine matches while Blackburn has kept just one in their last eight matches. Blackburn conceded three goals in their previous match against bottom-placed side Sheffield Wednesday and then conceded twice against Birmingham in the match before that. The incredible attacking players that Leeds have should ensure that they manage to find a goal against this Blackburn Rovers side.

Correct score prediction: 3-2 to Leeds United

For our third and final prediction, we at Football Ground Guide predict that Leeds United will earn a 3-2 victory over Lancashire-based side Blackburn Rovers. As mentioned above, Leeds United has scored at least three goals in seven matches this season and has conceded two or more times in six matches. Taking a look at the big chances created stat for the Championship, Leeds and Blackburn sit at the top of that table having both created fifty-three big chances each. Leeds does look at time a bit suspect defensively but that is due to their style of play which allows them to score so many goals.
