Blackburn Rovers FC vs Bristol City FC – Match odds
Blackburn and Bristol have gone through nearly identical runs in the Championship this year and the weekend’s game should be closely fought.

Our preview is to go with a low-scoring draw.

Blackburn Rovers FC vs Bristol City FC – Correct Score odds
Blackburn have enjoyed an impressive run of form upfront and they have netted in each of their previous five matches with three clean sheets. In comparison, Bristol have replicated the feat and they have gone one better defensively by keeping four shutouts in the same period. Both sides lack a healthy advantage, and this may play out into a stalemate. Our correct score prediction fancies a 1-1 draw.
Blackburn Rovers FC vs Bristol City FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Both Blackburn and Preston come into the game with impressive defensive records. Preston’s previous trip to Ewood Park produced the same outcome with just two goals involved in a 1-1 draw. Our total goals prediction is to go with less than 2.5 goals.
Blackburn Rovers FC vs Bristol City FC – First Goalscorer odds
Bradley Dack has shone for Blackburn Rovers from the number 10 position and he recently bagged his 14th goal of the campaign in the defeat to Brentford. That strike opened the scoring for Rovers and he should once more provide the main threat with his strong finishing skills. Our first goalscorer prediction favours Dack to find the breakthrough.
