Blackburn Rovers welcome Hull City to Ewood Park for Saturday’s league kick-off. Rovers have maintained a perfect league run since the turn of the year and this has propelled them to within six points off the playoff positions. Hull are ahead of their counterparts on only goal difference after witnessing their six-match winning streak cease. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Blackburn bagged a third-straight league triumph in the previous weekend after they got the better of bottom side Ipswich Town by a 2-0 scoreline. Danny Graham and Joe Nuttall found the scoresheet for Tony Mowbray’s men.
Hull, meanwhile, went undefeated for the 10th successive game in the Championship after settling for a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa. The Yorkshire outfit had a 2-0 advantage at one stage before James Chester and Tammy Abraham pegged them back.
The previous meeting between the sides was at the KCOM Stadium in August which finished 1-0 in Blackburn’s favour. The last clash at Ewood Park was three years ago which Hull won 2-0. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a Hull triumph.

Blackburn are given favourable odds of 2.37 for a fourth-straight win but they may find the challenge much stiffer against an in-form Hull unit. Rovers have been on a winning run, which has included a couple of clean sheets, but they may find it hard to preserve their recent defensive record against the visitors, who can be fancied to outscore the opposition on current form. Our preview backs Hull to return to winning ways.

Blackburn Rovers vs Hull City draw odds: 3.25
Correct Score odds
Blackburn have been in good scoring form with eight goals resulting from the past five matches. However, their feat looks rather ordinary when compared to Hull, who have netted 15 times in the same period. Mowbray’s side should test the visitors’ backline with their recent scoring form but we just do not see them coming up without a point. Our correct score prediction is to go with a Hull 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Blackburn have recently played a couple of 2-0 triumphs in the Championship but a similar showing may not be possible against Hull, who have flourished in the scoring department. Both teams should find the net for the weekend to contribute to a high-scoring game. Our total goals prediction expects more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jarrod Bowen has been simply sublime with his showing since the festive period and he is currently on a four-match scoring streak with six goals. Out of those, the forward has opened the scoring thrice and he can be fancied to replicate the feat against Blackburn with the added responsibility of taking penalty kicks. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Bowen.
