Blackburn v Aston Villa Betting Odds*
Aston Villa 8/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.)
Blackburn News and Form
Solid enough stuff from Blackburn then who had a five-match undefeated streak of form from the start of the season, snapped in a heavy defeat out at Bristol City just before the international break. They are W1 D2 at Ewood Park for the term and have a clean sheet in two of those three. So there is reason to suspect that this is going to be a low scoring game and under 2.5 goals is at 3/4 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.).
Rovers have returned just the three goals on home soil so far this season and have conceded the two. Top scorer for them is Charlie Mulgrew so he is going to be worth a look in the anytime goalscorer market from their end. Blackburn to win by a one-goal margin is at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.) if you were thinking of backing the home team. Coming back after the break having suffered their first league loss of the season will be a test of their character.
Aston Villa News and Form
It has really not happening for Aston Villa at the moment, despite still being fancied for a run at promotion. Things just are n’t going their way after a bright start to the season. They won their opening two games, scoring three goals in each and then it has been downhill since. They have D3 L1 in their last four league games and just before the international break they were torn apart in a 4-1 loss against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. That was a tough one for them and it just highlighted more defensive problems.
Villa haven’t taken a clean sheet this season and that’s a problem. Still, they have been producing in front of goal themselves and therefore both teams to score is at 4/5 odds and worth a poke* (Betting Odds were taken on September 12th, 2018 at 1:14 p.m.). That’s a decent Blackburn v Aston Villa betting tip. The Villains are averaging just under two goals per game this season but they have the worst defensive record of the top fourteen teams in the Championship ahead of the next round of action. They need to find their feet but could face a really testing time at Ewood Park on the weekend.
Blackburn v Aston Villa Head to Head
Blackburn and Aston Villa traded home wins in the Championship last season, both of those being won by a one-goal margin. The home side has won seven of the last eight fixtures between these two (D1) so there is a pretty strong trend towards Rovers if you look at that. Both teams have scored in all but one of the last six meetings. Blackburn are W2 D1 in their last three home games against Villa.
Who will win – Blackburn v Aston Villa Predictions
There has to be a decent chance of Blackburn producing something in what is likely going to be a low-scoring tight game. Rovers have held their own well enough and can sneak past the visitors. They are worth a look in the match outright.
