Blackburn vs Millwall: Our top betting tips

Both of these teams arrive in what can only be described as topsy-turvy form with neither able to nail down a consistent run of results. With that in mind, how will the action unfold as the two sides lock horns on Saturday afternoon? Find out with our Blackburn vs Millwall match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Rovers to win it

On the surface of things, this game is an extremely tough one to call with both sides having pretty patchy form of late and sharing a record across their last five matches that reads as just two wins and three losses. Despite that, we're confident to bring you the tip that Blackburn win this match. The key reason for that prediction is that they are at home. They're a different beast on their own patch, which is a claim supported by the fact they've won three of their past five at Ewood Park. More notbaly though is Millwall's away form, which is shocking. The Lions have played five away games so far this season; they've drawn one and lost the other four – including on to Cambridge United in the EFL Cup. With their poor form on the road and Blackburn's form better when at home, there really is only one result to bet on here.

A low scoring match

We have touched on both sides having shaky form of late, which is very much true, but they have at least been consistent with one thing – a lack of goals in their games. As such, our second tip for this match is that the game will go under 2.5 goals. Blackburn have gone under 2.5 goals in four of their last five games whilst Millwall saw their last match end 2-1 but with each of their prior four before that coming in under 2.5 goals. The last three head to head clashes have all been settled with fewer than three goals in them as well.
