Blackburn vs Cardiff: top free betting tips
After a much-needed victory over Queens Park Rangers, Blackburn Rovers go up against Cardiff City on Saturday, 21 October. The Bluebirds enter Ewood Park after a draw and a defeat against Watford and Middlesbrough respectively in the EFL Championship.
Total goals prediction: Over 3.5 goals
Two of the previous three H2Hs of these two sides at Ewood Park have finished with Over 3.5 Goals. Despite losing three of their last five games, Blackburn have found the back of the net 13 times in that course. On the other hand, Cardiff City notched just six goals in the same number of games. However, the Bluebirds’ defence has been caught napping as they have conceded 11 goals in their previous five fixture away from Cardiff City Stadium. Following these stats, we predict this game to feature a total of Over 3.5 Goals.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
Blackburn and Cardiff have shared BTTS outcomes in two of their last three H2Hs at Ewood Park. The Riversiders have rattled the net in each of their last five fixture in front of the home fans. But they have been unable to keep a single clean sheet in that course. On the other hand, Cardiff have scored in four of their previous five road fixtures while conceding goals in four games. Hence, we predict both teams to be able to get on the score sheet in this game.
Correct score prediction: 3-1 to Blackburn
Cardiff City have scored just one goal in two of their last four league outings while remaining goalless in one match. But Blackburn’s offence has been impressive as they have scored three or more goals in three of their previous five games. The Riversiders have also notched five goals per game in two of their last three H2Hs against Cardiff at Ewood Park, conceding only three in total. Given these numbers, we imagine a 3-1 lead for Blackburn before the full-time whistle.
