Blackburn prepare for the first Championship match at Ewood Park after more than 12 months when they take on Millwall this weekend. Blackburn were able to seal a return to the second division after just one season in League One. Millwall were able to surprise many by finishing eighth in the Championship last season. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Blackburn were able to snatch a point from their recent trip to Portman Road. However, manager Tony Mowbray was quite disappointed to see his team conceded a late equaliser.
Millwall were held to a home draw by Middlesbrough in the opening game, as Neil Harris’ team conceded twice in the last three minutes of the match.
The recent game between Blackburn and Millwall was in 2015 when Millwall lost 2-0 at the Ewood Park. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Blackburn.

Millwall are at a price of 3.10 for emerging victorious in the match, but that may not be the best bet. Harris’ men had a mediocre record last season with only seven wins on the road. Blackburn, meanwhile, had the best home record in League One and even finished with five consecutive wins at Ewood Park. The last occasion Millwall secured a win over Blackburn was in 2013. Since then, they have lost three times in five meetings and our preview expects more of the same.

Blackburn vs Millwall draw odds: 3.25
Millwall win odds: 3.10
Correct Score odds
Blackburn were quite shy in front of goal but still managed to come away with a return of two goals against Ipswich. It is difficult to expect away goals out of a Millwall team that largely remains unchanged from last season and the one that has scored an average of just a goal per game on the road. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Blackburn 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The likelihood of Blackburn and Millwall both scoring in this match remains quite high. Even though both defences were able to remain quite solid in the opening game, the two matches witnessed over 3.5 goals without exception. An entertaining encounter is also cards and our total goals prediction would opt for more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Danny Graham came up with the opening goal for Blackburn in the game against Ipswich. He was able to come in with the return of 14 goals in the league last season. The 32-year-old happens to possess an immense record against Millwall after scoring four goals in eight appearances against this club. Our first goalscorer prediction would opt for Graham.
