Blackburn will seek to continue their three-man unbeaten in the Championship when they entertain Nottingham Forest at Ewood Park on Sunday. The hosts have succumbed to just one defeat since the season started but their tendency to draw the majority of their matches sees them in the 12th place with a two-point difference to the top six. Forest have an equally identical record but they are positioned three places higher with a superior goal difference. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Blackburn’s recent league meeting saw them scrape through a close 3-2 win over Stoke City on the road. They, however, lost by the same margin to Bournemouth in the League Cup third round after a dramatic 94th-minute winner for Callum Wilson.
Forest, on the other side, made it two league victories on the bounce as they clinched a 1-0 triumph over Rotherham United last weekend. They also enjoyed success in the League Cup in midweek as they picked up a 3-2 win over Stoke City.
Blackburn’s last meeting against Forest was at the City Ground in April 2017 where they picked up a 1-0 triumph. The previous encounter at Ewood Park saw them run 2-1 victors. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Forest are priced at 3.50 for the victory while Blackburn are 2.10 for the same outcome. Both teams have been difficult to beat since the season kick-started but this has not necessarily contributed to regular wins. As a result, we are anticipating a share of the spoils with Blackburn, in particular, possessing a good home record with no league defeats in the calendar year. Our preview fancies a draw.

Nottingham Forest win odds: 3.50
Correct Score odds
Three of the previous five meetings between the sides have finished in stalemates and an identical result may be witnessed this weekend. Out of the nine matches played this season, Blackburn and Forest have played out five draws each with three of them resulting from their home and away games respectively. Our correct score prediction is to go for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Blackburn have not succumbed to a league defeat at Ewood Park in nearly a year and they have largely witnessed low-scoring encounters. Three of their four league games this term have produced a maximum of two goals and a similar outcome was witnessed in Forest’s recent away trip to Swansea City. Our total goals prediction fancies less than 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Bradley Dack has taken his game to a new level this term and he is presently Blackburn’s leading scorer with six goals across all competitions. The 24-year-old attacker has failed to score in just one of his previous five appearances and he has netted the opening goal on three occasions during this period. Our first goalscorer prediction is to go with Dack.
