Blackburn vs Wrexham prediction – Betting tips & odds

Hot Tip – Blackburn to win

  • Although Wrexham have been excellent in League Two this campaign, Blackburn are still sitting 56 places above them in the Football League pyramid
  • Rovers are also the boasting of the talent of Sammie Szmodics, who is the Championship’s top scorer this season

We have also decided to back Blackburn because of their 41 goals scored in 28 games, which puts them as 10th top scorers in the second tier this season. They also managed to smash Wrexham's fellow League Two side Cambridge United in the last outing in the FA Cup with a hat-trick from the Championship's top scorer Szmodics coming in as part of a 5-2 home win.
