Betting Tips for the game
Blackburn lost at home against Stoke City, who picked up a 1-0 win at Ewood Park. This was the fourth defeat in the last five matches for Tony Mowbray’s men.
Derby County were held to a 3-3 draw by Brentford, who equalised three times in the game. Lampard was disappointed to see his team drop a lead three times in the game to end up with this one win in the last four matches.
The reverse fixture between Derby and Blackburn at Pride Park earlier in the campaign produced a goalless draw. The last game between the two clubs at Ewood Park witnessed Blackburn getting a 1-0 win during the 2016-17 campaign. Our betting tips and predictions for the game would go with a victory for Derby.

Derby County have displayed a lot of goalscoring form in the last few weeks, but they have been let down by a lack of concentration. Blackburn’s concentration levels have been even worse with the team showing a typical end of season form in the last few weeks. Blackburn’s play has not been good and even with home form they are unlikely to make any impact in the match. Our preview would go with a win for Derby, who will have a greater desire to get three points even if their away form is not great.

Blackburn vs Derby County draw odds: 3.40

Correct Score odds
Derby County have come up with a remarkable nine goals in the last two matches. It is a remarkable tally from a team that had managed just 46 goals in the previous 38 matches. However, Derby have retained an attacking intent throughout the campaign and they are up against a Blackburn outfit that has conceded 63 goals. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Derby.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There has been just one high scoring match between Derby and Blackburn in the last six meetings. However, Derby have been quite good going forward and this factor is expected to help ramp up the total goals from this match. The presence of players like Harry Wilson on good form should also be a key factor. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Harry Wilson was able to come up with a brace against Brentford but Martin Waghorn remains as a potent centre forward with seven league goals. The striker has often scored in patches but he will be looking for a quick return to form after a mediocre performance against Brentford. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Martin Waghorn.
