Burnley vs Blackburn: Our top betting tips

This game is a huge one as the Championship goes with league leaders Burnley taking on second place Blackburn in a match where the winner will end the weekend top. Who will lead the league come the end of the weekend though? Find out with our Burnley vs Blackburn match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Burnley to win it

We kick off our tips for this game by backing Burnley to win. Burnley suffered defeat in their last league game as Sheffield United beat them 5-2 but we don't see them losing again. Vincent Kompany's men are extremely strong at Turf Moor; they've won each of their last five games at home and are yet to lose on their own patch this season. Blackburn meanwhile might be in good form in general terms but they are far from unbeatable on the road; from 10 away games this season they've lost six of them. On top of Burnley's home advantage and superior form, it's also worth noting that Blackburn haven't beaten Burnley since 2010 with the Clarets winning the last meeting between the sides.

Goals galore

Our next prediction for this game sees us backing the total goals to go over 2.5 goals. Burnley have regularly broken that threshold of late with each of their last four games going north of that marker. Blackburn's form is less convincing with their away form reading as two in four having gone over the all important 2.5 mark. With both sides going strong in the league, they'll both be confident of getting the win here and we feel that will lead to an open game of football with that ultimately leading to more than just a handful of scoring opportunities. With odds of 19/20 (1.95) on offer as well, that's real value.

Here are the key stats & form guide for Burnley vs Blackburn

Table top clash

Not only is this a top of the table Championship clash but it's the Cotton Mill derby as well. There is loads on the line in respect of how valuable the three points will be in this game but with all of 13 miles between the two sides, it's fair to say bragging rights are on the line as well. It should be a good game of football played within a ferocious atmosphere – especially because the duo haven't faced off for several years!

Burnley were able to rotate their squad in midweek as they took on Crawley in the EFL Cup but, despite winning that game comfortably, they'll be back to a more regular XI here. There are still a few players who won't be involved though; Scott Twine headlines that list.

Burnley Predicted lineup – Muric, Maatsen, Vitinho, Beyer, Harwood-Bellis, Cullen, Cork, Benson, Zaroury, Tella, Barnes

Like Burnley, Blackburn had a midweek cup game but they faced Premier League West Ham. Despite winning that tie, Rovers had also named a much changed lineup meaning there will be plenty of changes to their starting lineup here too as they revert to their “league XI”. They have no notable absentees.

Blackburn Predicted lineup – Kaminski, Brittain, Hyam, Ayala, Pickering, Morton, Travis, Hedges, Szmodics, Diaz, Gallagher
