Blackburn Rovers host Sheffield United in Wednesday’s Championship game at Ewood Park. The hosts have succumbed to just a solitary defeat this campaign but their tendency to draw games sees them one point adrift of the playoff positions. Sheffield have to overcome a two-match winless run with back-to-back victories and they are currently just a single point behind leaders West Bromwich Albion.

Betting Tips for the game
Blackburn come into the game on the back of a 2-2 draw against Nottingham Forest. The stalemate was their third in four league matches with the other game ending in a 3-2 victory over Stoke City.
Sheffield, meanwhile, made it two wins on the bounce as they beat struggling Millwall by a 3-2 scoreline. David McGoldrick made the difference against the Lions with two goals in the final 15 minutes.
Blackburn’s last meeting against Sheffield was at Ewood Park more than 11 years ago where they picked up a 2-1 win. Our betting tips and predictions fancy a share of the spoils.

Blackburn are priced at 2.87 for a win while Sheffield are backed at 2.50 for the same. Blackburn have been impressive since their second-tier return but this has not quite translated into wins with six draws from 10 matches. Out of this, four have resulted in their home turf and Sheffield possess the firepower up front to score at least once. Our preview is to go for a score draw.

Correct Score odds
Sheffield have barely enjoyed success when it comes to the away trips to Blackburn and they have not picked up a victory since 1986. We are not expecting this outcome to change on Wednesday night amid Blackburn’s unbeaten home league run in 2018 but a draw remains a suitable result with them being unable to hold onto leads. Our correct score prediction anticipates a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Four of Blackburn’s five home matches have ended in draws this season and a majority of those games have involved two or fewer goals. A similar result could be witnessed this weekend with Blackburn barely conceding more than once on their home turf this year. Our total goals prediction is to go for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Bradley Dack may have featured in just seven league games for Blackburn but he has still topped their scoring charts with five goals, which have included strikes in back-to-back matches. The 24-year-old attacker has also enjoyed good success against Sheffield in League One with two goals from seven meetings. Our first goalscorer prediction backs Dack to score 1st.
