Hot Tip – Blackburn to win

  • Although Blackburn are only only ahead of Huddersfield by six points, they have double the Terriers' win tally with 10
  • Rovers have also managed to bag 13 more goals than Huddersfield

We have also decided to back Blackburn because of how Huddersfield have failed to win a game since beating Blackburn back on Boxing Day. Worse yet, the Terriers have gone on to let in 12 goals in this period, including a 1-1 draw at home to fellow strugglers Plymouth Argyle last weekend.

For more football betting tips on this game, check out the over 2.5 goals alongside our Blackburn vs Huddersfield betting tips.

Although we are backing Rovers to get the job done here at home, they did lose the last match with Huddersfield that saw Blackburn suffer a 3-0 defeat at the John Smith’s Stadium. What’s more, practically every game this season has seen over 2.5 goals with Blackburn, as they’ve predominantly either won or lost a game with them drawing only twice from 27 Championship games.

This record has seen them tally up 40 goals scored and 52 conceded, meaning no side in the Championship have been involved in more. Also, the last game between these two just under a month ago saw the three goals.

Blackburn vs Huddersfield Lineups

Blackburn

Ryan Hedges and Tyrhys Dolan are both set to be out here, while Joe Rankin-Costello is now back in the squad but may not be fit enough to start. Scott Wharton also faces a late fitness test before the game.

Predicted Lineup: Wahlstedt (GK), Brittain, Wharton, Hyam, Carter, Tronstad, Wahrton, Sigurdsson, Garret, Gallagher, Szmodics

Huddersfield

The poor form this season for Huddersfield has seen this coupled with a brutal luck with injuries. Burgzorg, Maxwell, Ward, Pearson, Harratt, Ruffels, Jones and Turton are all sidelined until February at the earliest. Nakayama adds to the woes, as he is at the Asian Cup with Japan.

Predicted Lineup: Nicholls (GK), Lees, Helik, Spencer, Kasumu, Matos, Hogg, Rudoni, Jackson, Thomas, Koroma

Player to Watch: Sammie Szmodics
