Blackburn welcome West Brom to Ewood Park to avoid a fourth consecutive loss. Blackburn have been sliding down the table in the last few weeks and the team finds itself with just nine points acting as the buffer zone to the relegation places. Meanwhile, West Brom remain within touching distance of the automatic promotion spots as they are only two points behind Norwich.

Betting Tips for the game
Blackburn were beaten 3-0 by Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. The result was a poor result for Blackburn, who played against 10 men for a sizeable chunk in the game.
West Brom were held to a 1-1 draw by Sheffield Wednesday at home, but this was still a positive result for the Baggies as they came back from a goal down even with 10 men.
The recent game between West Brom and Blackburn took place at the Hawthorns back in October but this will be West Brom’s first visit to Ewood Park since 2011 when both teams were in the Premier League. Back then, the Baggies picked up a 2-1 win. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for West Brom.

Blackburn may be at home but they have been quite poor in recent weeks and the manner of the loss against Sheffield United will further lower the team’s confidence. West Brom may have dropped points during the weekend, but the Baggies have consistently been in among the best teams in the division through the campaign. They are likely to get the best out of a poor Blackburn team who are on the verge of losing four games on the bounce. Even though Blackburn have lost only two matches at Ewood Park this season, our preview would go with a win for the visitors.

Correct Score odds
West Brom have been on a wonderful streak when it comes to away matches after winning four on the bounce. The team has also averaged around two goals per match when on the road. Blackburn have been quite defensively solid but recent form has taken a toll on their fragile confidence. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for West Brom.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
A reason behind West Brom finding themselves near the top two places of the table is a great balance between offence and defence. The team has been able to get two goals for every goal that they have conceded. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals largely due to Blackburn’s defensive troubles.

First Goalscorer odds
Dwight Gayle has been in stunning form for West Brom but his absence due to injury and suspension for Jay Rodriguez puts more pressure on this West Brom team. Harvey Barnes will be taking up a much more important role in this match, and he has been in good form this season after coming up with nine goals and six assists. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Harvey Barnes.
