Reason For Blackburn vs Derby Betting Tips

  • Blackburn are on a 3 game winning run in the Championship.
  • Derby have lost 3 of their last 4 trips to Ewood Park.
  • Derby haven’t scored in their last 4 away games.

Blackburn Climbing

Blackburn are on the up and into the top half, but can they keep picking up points when they face Derby this week? The hosts are making great strides in recent weeks, while the visitors have run into some poor form on the road. Can Blackburn add to their three-game winning run.

The Rams are still waiting for Wayne Rooney’s arrival next month, but can Phillip Cocu’s men manage to turn things around before the former England star returns to English football?

Derby’s Away Wobble

The Rams are big outsiders in this trip, with the visitors down in 14th after some tough results this season. They’ve managed to improve their home record to make it the sixth-best in the division. However, Derby are winless away from home since the opening weekend (D3 L5), losing their last four in a row. They’ve not lost five consecutive away league games since May 2008 in the Premier League (six in a row).

To make things worse, the visitors have a torrid record at Ewood Park. Blackburn are unbeaten in four league matches against Derby (W3 D1) since a 0-1 defeat in February 2016. The Rams have failed to score in each of their last three league visits to Blackburn (D1 L2). Could that run continue here?

Reluctant Rams

The visitors have major issues in front of goal, having scored just seven times on the road. Derby have failed to score in each of their last four trips. They’ve shipped 18 goals in return, while the Rams have averaged only eight shots per game on their travels, so they don’t create nearly enough chances. That could lead to a defeat in this clash with a Blackburn side who have found the net in 90% of their home games, while they’ve won three on the bounce here.

No Championship team has conceded more goals via set pieces than Derby County this season (13, level with Barnsley and Huddersfield Town). Blackburn will be hoping to add to their six set piece goals this season, while we see them taking advantage of a poor Derby side. Given how the visitors have been struggling on the road, we are going with a home win at Ewood Park this weekend.

On top of that, we’re backing Derby’s dry spell up front to continue. Rovers have hit two goals in three of their last four at home, so we are going with a 2-1 victory for Rovers as our correct score pick in this one.
