Reason For Blackburn vs Birmingham Betting Tips

  • Blackburn head into this clash unbeaten in 7.
  • The Blues have lost their last 3 games.
  • The visitors have won just 1 of their last 9.
  • Blackburn have kept 3 straight home clean sheets.

Can Birmingham End Rut?

Blackburn may view their draw with Wigan on Monday as two points gifted away on the eve of Christmas, but spirits should still be high after their seven-game unbeaten run. An injury to Bradley Dack overshadowed the meeting at Ewood Park, but the hosts will be hoping that Birmingham’s problems result in another home win.

The visitors head here aiming to follow up a 1-0 victory when these two sides clashed in the league back in October. However, Birmingham haven’t completed a league double over Blackburn since the 1950-51 season. They are going to need a turnaround to change that, as the Blues have lost three on the spin ahead of this trip.

Rovers on a Roll

Monday’s point left Blackburn inside the top 10, having passed up the chance to move into the top eight. However, Rovers remain just three points shy of the playoffs, with their excellent run of form to thank for that rise. They have secured 17 points from a possible 21 on this brilliant stretch, including victories against Brentford, Derby and Bristol City.

Blackburn have kept four clean sheets in their last six, which is a good sign ahead of a clash against a Birmingham side who have hit less than a goal per game on the road. The Blues have failed to score in 42% of their away games, losing each of those. We expect the hosts to secure another clean sheet, having kept one in their last three at this ground.

Blues on the Road

Their 3-0 hammering at Hull was another reminder for Birmingham that their away form needs some work. The Blues have lost seven of their 12 trips so far this season, while their three-game losing run points to wider problems for Pep Clotet. Birmingham have won just once across their last nine matches, so this game looks perfect for Rovers.

With five wins in seven matches, Rovers are looking too strong for their opponents here. The hosts have won six of their 12 home matches this season, including four of their last five. We think they will see off the Blues here, as we’re backing Blackburn to secure all three points on Boxing Day to add to Birmingham’s woes.

Blackburn’s last four games have all seen under 2.5 goals scored, while they’ve conceded just 0.8 goals per game at home. Their fine defensive record should continue here, but Birmingham have conceded nearly two goals per game on the road this term. Following that form, we’re going for a 2-0 home win as our correct score prediction.
