Blackburn Rovers to Win

Reason for tip

Burnley have seemingly packed up for their summer holidays since securing promotion, making the large price around the home win appear to be great value.

Blackburn Rovers 2-1

Reason for tip

Burnley may field a weakened team, although they should still have more than enough quality to at least keep the scoreline tight.

Blackburn Rovers vs Burnley Predictions

  • Burnley have fielded a weakened side since securing promotion.
  • Both teams have scored in four of Burnley’s last six Championship away games.
  • Blackburn have lost just once at home in 2023 (W5, D4).

An East Lancashire Derby with consequence

This fiery rivalry between East Lancashire rivals Blackburn and Burnley could prove vitally important for either side depending on where the points go. Burnley can wrap the title up with a victory whilst Blackburn need the points desperately to further their promotion push after being leapfrogged by Sunderland.

Playing at home will be a big boost for Blackburn then, as they’ve lost just one of their ten games here at Ewood Park since the turn of the year. Perhaps also playing into their hands is the fact that Burnley have fell off the boil since securing promotion with Vincent Kompany giving fringe players a chance and subsequently falling to a three-game winless run.

Securing the title seems like just a matter of time for the Clarets, who probably already have enough points to see them top come the final day. However, the visitors do hold the H2H dominance with four straight wins to nil against their rivals ahead of the latest instalment in this fabled fixture.

Go for the hosts

Burnley can arguably be accused of having their sandals on early with a Premier League return confirmed as they fell to a shocking home defeat against crisis club QPR at the weekend, an unthinkable result before a ball was kicked.

As such, we’re going for the clarets to flop yet again against their bitter rivals for a cracking price. For smaller stakes, we’re going for a very slender 2-1 win for Jon Dahl Tomasson’s men in the correct score market to complete our selections for this clash.
