Blackburn Rovers entertain high-flying Norwich City in the Championship on Saturday afternoon. The Rovers have recently built up a three-match unbeaten run and are within five points off the playoff positions. Norwich, however, relinquished their top spot to Leeds United last weekend but they are still comfortably placed in the automatic promotion places after remaining undefeated for more than two months. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Blackburn secured their second draw on the bounce after settling for a 2-2 scoreline against Birmingham City. Blackburn were leading 2-0 within the opening 50 minutes but they were pegged back by Birmingham with goals in the final quarter of the game.
Norwich, meanwhile, extended their unbeaten run to 10 league matches after managing a 2-2 draw on the road to Bristol City. Norwich have attained eight wins and just two draws in their current undefeated streak.
Blackburn’s last meeting against Norwich was at Carrow Road last year which ended in a 2-2 draw. The last encounter at Ewood Park two years ago saw Norwich come up triumphs by a 4-1 scoreline. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Blackburn are offered odds of 3.10 to secure a win while Norwich are priced at 2.37 for the same. The hosts have gone through a tough phase where they have struggled to garner regular wins but they have nonetheless been picking up points in the form of stalemates. Moreover, they have possessed a strong home record with just one league defeat in the past 12 months and we are anticipating them to get something against Norwich, who have drawn their past two away games. Our preview is to go for a share of the spoils.

Blackburn Rovers win odds: 3.10
Norwich City win odds: 2.37
Correct Score odds
Blackburn have excelled with their scoring at Ewood Park and they have netted 10 goals in the previous five matches. Norwich have bettered them with 12 goals scored in their last five away trips but only two of those have resulted from the past two matches. Both teams are bound to score with the present scoring form but a stalemate appears the likelier result with Blackburn proving a tough side to crack in their stadium. Our correct score prediction is to go for a 2-2 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The match has historically been a high-scoring one with the last four meetings producing a minimum of three goals. A repeat may be witnessed on Saturday with both sides averaging more than two goals scored from their previous three league games. Our total goals prediction would back more than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Teemu Pukki has been instrumental in Norwich’s frontline and he has already netted 12 times in the Championship including three from the previous five matches. The Finnish footballer has been a genuine scoring threat with more than 70 percent of his attempts being on target. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Pukki.
