Coventry vs Blackburn: Our top betting tips

Blackburn are breathing down the neck of league leaders Burnley right now and a win here could see them move top. Will they get the job done and take three points? Find out with our Coventry vs Blackburn match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Blackburn to win

We kick off our tips on the match result (1X2) market and it is hard to look beyond a Blackburn win. Rovers have been really strong of late having won each of their last four games including winning each of their previous two games on the road. Coventry meanwhile, whilst their form has picked up, have still only won two of their last 10 games at home whilst suffering six defeats in that period. On top of recent form favouring Blackburn, the head to head history also favours quite heavily; Coventry last beat Blackburn in 2009 – that was six games ago.

Going under 2.5 goals

Our next tip comes from the total goals market and we are opting for an under 2.5 prediction. Coventry have seen three of their last five games go south of that 2.5 marker with a total of just 11 goals in that time – that gives them a game average of just 2.2 goals per game. As for Blackburn, they've also seen three of their past five matches go under 2.5 goals but with just 10 goals scored – that's an average of just 2.0 goals per game. With that sort of form combined with odds of 8/11 (1.73), we think there is value to be had with this wager.

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

Blackburn to heap pressure on league leaders

Blackburn and Coventry might be sat at different ends of the table right now with Blackburn in the automatic promotion spots and Coventry in the relegation zone but that doesn't tell the full story. A look at the recent form table, which focuses on the most recent five games, has both sides in the top six. With their table positions and that form considered this should be an entertaining game where the three points are hugely valuable to both sides.

Coventry's recent form has been much improved albeit they've not won either of their last two. Fankaty Dabo, Matt Godden and Martyn Waghorn are all significant names on the injury list.

Coventry Predicted lineup – Wilson, Doyle, McFadzean, Panzo, Kane, Hamer, Sheaf, Bidwell, Allen, Palmer, O'Hare

Sam Barnes is Blackburn's only absentee and he's hardly a big player for Rovers. That squad availability has unquestionably helped their recent form and with the likes of Ben Brereton Diaz and Sam Gallagher up top they'll be a threat in this game for sure.

Blackburn Predicted lineup – Kaminski, Hyam, Wharton, Travis, Pickering, Wharton, Morton, Dolan, Diaz, Gallagher, Szmodics
