Blackburn vs Wolves – Goals are expected at Ewood Park
Wolverhampton Wanderers don’t enjoy travelling to Ewood Park and Blackburn Rovers can bounce back from their thumping from Manchester United to register three points.
The only two times Wolves have travelled to Ewood Park in the Premier League, they have been on the end of 3-1 and 5-1 hiding’s and Blackburn are 33/1 to win 4-1.
Wolves enter this away tie having lost their last six games on the road and Blackburn offer a very tempting price at 4/5 to beat Mick McCarthy’s side.
Blackburn are pretty solid at Ewood Park and have only lost to Chelsea and Arsenal at home this season and Wolves’ last victory at Ewood Park came way back in the 1991/92 season when both sides were competing in the second division.
It might sound silly but Wolves are short at 7/2 to beat Blackburn considering they are yet to win in the Premier League and the best the travelling Wolves fans can hope for is a draw, priced at 5/2.
With 16 goals in four Premier League games, this game could prove to be the tie of the weekend and with Wolves yet to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League this season, the only club yet to do so, the Blackburn strikers will be eagerly awaiting kick off.
But with just eight goals at home this season, none of the Blackburn forwards are high in confidence and it’s worth a punt on Morten Gamst Pedersen to score the first goal at 8/1.
Blackburn have managed just three clean sheets this season but have only conceded six goals at Ewood Park, and Blackburn will be confident of repeating last season’s 3-1 success.
At 11/1, Blackburn to win 3-1 is a tempting price, but more tempting is the 9/4 for over 3.5 goals.
A £10 stake on Pedersen to score first and Blackburn to win 4-1 would return £1510. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
