Blackburn vs Wigan: Our top betting predictions

Blackburn and Wigan are two out of form sides in the Championship at the moment but facing one another means both have a chance to bag what has become a rare win. Will either manage to take all three points? Find out with our Blackburn vs Wigan match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

A draw awaits

We have already touched on the fact both of these teams have been in a poor run of form and, unfortunately for their fans, we are predicting that their respective winless runs continue here as we back this game to end in a draw. Blackburn have seen each of their last three games end in draws with a win and a loss closing out their form across their last five games. Wigan meanwhile have drawn three of their last four games when away from home. On top of those runs of form, two of the last three meetings between these two played at Ewood Park have ended in a share of the spoils.

Don't bank on goals

Our next prediction for this game comes from the total goals market and we are betting on this being a low scoring affair with our under 2.5 goals tip. Blackburn have seen three of their last five games go under that 2.5 goals marker. Wigan meanwhile have gone under 2.5 goals in three of their last four games. The head to head record is another avenue of support for this prediction; three of the last four meetings between these teams have come up short against the 2.5 threshold whilst their average goals per game across that spell is just 2.0 goals.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Blackburn vs Wigan

Blackburn

Blackburn might have struggled for wins of late but they've not lost many games either with draws in each of their last three outings. As such, they are looking at minor tweaks to their lineup for this game – if any at all. Daniel Ayala is suspended with Callum Britain and Sam Barnes injured.

Predicted lineup – Kaminski, Pickering, Wharton, Carter, Rankin-Costello, Morton, Buckley, Diaz, Dack, Hedges, Gallagher

Wigan

Like their hosts, Wigan have a couple of injury concerns ahead of this game with Jason Kerr and Tom Pearce both sidelined. Beyond those though, it's a fully fit Latics squad to pick from. One player that might come into the spotlight is centre back Steven Caulker. He only signed for the club a month ago but some reports are suggesting he's now left the club again. An interesting one.

Predicted lineup – Amos, Hughes, Tilt, Whatmough, Nyambe, McClean, Azeez, Tiehi, Power, Keane, Fletcher

Player to watch

Blackburn's midfielder Bradley Dack has the potential to be a real game changer on his day. Of late, he's had a couple of those days with goals in two of his last three games. His strong run of form dates back further than that though. Over his last half dozen appearances, he's scored three goals and provided an assist establishing himself as Rovers' most in-form talent. So, Wigan will have to find a way to stop him if they want to stay undefeated in this match.
