Championship football is back following the Euro 2020 qualifiers break and football bettors are delighted to hear it. We get started on Saturday afternoon with what promises to be an exciting match from Ewood Park as Blackburn Rovers take on Huddersfield Town from 12.30pm. The area will be packed and there will be plenty more following the live coverage on Sky Sports. Here are our top Blackburn v Huddersfield betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Blackburn fans went into the season longing to see their team push for a return to the Premier League. However, they know the club has their work cut out if they are to drive at a top-six finish. Stats of four wins and two draws against five defeats has Blackburn kicking their heels down in 14th position. They are already six points off the play-off spots and eight behind the pace set by leaders West Brom. Not ideal but it is still far too early to be reaching for the panic button.
Two or three good wins on the bounce and Rovers could transform their season, launching themselves towards the major places. They are expected to be in and around the top six for much of this campaign. To live up to expectations they must ensure Ewood Park becomes a fortress again, starting with a win on Saturday afternoon.
Don’t Count Huddersfield Out Yet
Blackburn is favourite to get the three points and have been marked up at 4/5 with Bet365 to make a winning return, grabbing their first victory in three. Huddersfield is 7/2 – top price with Bet365 – and that’s interesting as they have won each of their last two to put a poor start to the season behind them. The draw is yours at 13/5.
