Blackburn vs Leicester: Top free betting tips
Leicester City take on Blackburn Rovers to retain their winning form in the EFL Championship on Sunday, 30 October. The Rovers enter Ewood Park after ending their losing streak against Cardiff City in the third round of the EFL Cup.
Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 Goals
Four of the previous five competitive H2H meetings between these teams have witnessed totals of Over 2.5 Goals. Blackburn Rovers have rattled the net 11 times in the previous four fixtures in the EFL Cup and Championship. But the Riversiders didn’t have enough preparation at the back end, allowing ten goals in the same duration. On the other hand, Leicester City have netted the ball 11 times in their last five fixtures away from King Power Stadium. Given these statistics, we predict this game to feature a total of Over 2.5 Goals.
Both teams to score prediction: Yes
The brilliant scoring performances have led them to stand in the top of the points table in EFL Champions. However, the Foxes back line have featured just two clean sheets in the last six league outings. Blackburn Rovers have also scored goals in all of the four home league outings this season, however, keeping zero clean sheets. Additionally, Blackburn and Leicester have featured four BTTS outcomes in their last five competitive H2Hs. Therefore, a BTTS outcome will be our next pick for this game.
Correct score prediction: 2-1 to Leicester
Blackburn Rovers were able to score just one goal in three of their last five league outings at Ewood Park. Nevertheless, Leicester City have thrashed multiple goals in four of their last five fixtures away from King Power Stadium. Defensively, the Foxes conceded just one goal in two matches while keeping clean sheets in two games as well during the aforestated period. On the other hand, Blackburn has allowed multiple goals at the back in three of the last four home and away league games. Considering these facts, we imagine a 1-2 victory for Leicester City to continue their winning form.
