Today's Predictions for Blackburn vs Luton

Blackburn have won only one of their last nine league assignments ahead of their tussle with Luton on Monday. Read our top Blackburn vs Luton predictions for this week’s fixture.

Blackburn  to Win

Blackburn need back-to-back positive results in their final two fixtures of the Championship campaign to make the playoffs, however, Rovers have won only once in their last nine matches in the division and a late turnaround in form seems unlikely now. Luton meanwhile, are already assured of a playoff place, and having gone 12 games without defeat, the Hatters look like an interesting prospect at Ewood Park. Rovers have drawn four of their last five however, and the first of our football betting tips this week recommends a wager on Luton in the draw no bet market with that haul of stalemates in mind.

Under 2.5 Goals

Neither Blackburn nor Luton could ever be described as prolific and with chances likely to be thin on the ground at Ewood Park, our second Blackburn vs Luton prediction advises a stake on under 2.5 goals. Six of Rovers’ last seven matches in the Championship have gone under, while 80% of Luton’s last ten fixtures in the second tier have also seen two or fewer goals. Expect more of the teams when these modest scorers clash on Monday.

Let's take a closer look at the latest markets, Blackburn – Luton odds and probability figures ahead of Monday’s contest below.

Blackburn odds: 31/25 (2.24) – 44.6%

Draw odds: 41/20 (3.05) – 32.82%

Luton odds: 21/10 (3.10) – 32.3%

The probability of a Blackburn win this week has been set at 44.6% by the bookmakers while a stake on both teams to score on Monday would net you a winner at 8/11 (1.73 – 57.9%). With Blackburn listed as the expected winners, a 1-0 win in their favour could be one to ponder over at 13/2 (7.5) in the correct score markets, even though that one goes against our own predictions. That outcome has an implied probability of 13.3%.

Blackburn vs Luton Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates, Blackburn vs Luton lineups and team news for Monday’s Championship tussle below.

Blackburn

John Buckley, Sam Gallagher, Jack Vale, Daniel Ayala and Clinton Mola are all sidelined for Blackburn at present. Rovers lost 1-0 at home to Burnley last time out in a result that allowed their Lancashire rivals to seal the Championship title. Blackburn are three points outside the playoff positions.

Predicted Lineup for Blackburn: Pears – Rankin-Costello, Carter, Hyman, Pickering – Travis, Wharton, Hedges, Szmodics, Brereton – Dolan

Luton

Gabriel Osho, Reece Burke, Dan Potts and Jack Walton are all in the treatment room for Luton ahead of Monday's game. In-form Town made the most of a controversial penalty decision to beat fellow playoff contenders Middlesbrough 2-1 in their last runout. The Hatters are one of the favourites to earn promotion this term.

Predicted Lineup for Luton: Horvath – Lockyer, Bradley, Bell – Drameh, Mpanzu, Nakamba, Campbell, Doughty – Morris, Adebayo

Player to Watch – Alfie Doughty

Left-wing back Alfie Doughty has been superb for Luton this season and the talented 23-year-old grabbed his fourth assist of the campaign when he set up a goal in The Hatters’ 2-1 win over Middlesbrough in their last fixture. Doughty has plenty of admirers and one way or another, he should be playing Premier League football next season.
