Blackburn Rovers cannot wait to return to Ewood Park, where they host Sheffield Wednesday this weekend. Rovers have dropped to 13th-place in the table as a result of issues at the back. The club’s recent run has seen them drop to just three points above Sheffield Wednesday coming into the game. Wednesday have been struggling for consistency throughout the campaign. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Blackburn lost for a second consecutive away game as Wigan secured a 3-1 win at DW Stadium. This result comes just days after the 4-1 loss against Preston.
Sheffield Wednesday were able to sneak a narrow 1-0 victory over Bolton to arrest a run of poor results. This happens to be the first win for Wednesday since beating Bristol City at Ashton Gate Stadium in the first week of October.
The recent match between these two clubs produced a 2-1 win for Wednesday at the Hillsborough Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Sheffield Wednesday were quite fortunate to come away with a win and a clean sheet against Bolton in the midweek action. The team were not impressive and Blackburn have lost only once at Ewood Park this season. Yet, the disappointing experienced by Blackburn is down to a defence that has looked shaky. Even though it has the potential to improve in front of their own fans, our preview would go with a point for the visitors.

Blackburn win odds: 1.90
Sheffield Wednesday win odds: 4.00
Correct Score odds
Blackburn have played good football under Tony Mowbray and fans have been treated to a fair amount of goals and entertainment at Ewood Park this season. Sheffield Wednesday need to capitalise on any individual or the mistakes committed by Blackburn in order to score goals, as they have been offensively mediocre. Still, our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Blackburn are likely to be extra cautious in this match after having conceded an incredible seven goals – even if it is on the road – in the last two matches. A return to home comfort can potentially pacify the team, who have looked ragged at the back. Wednesday, however, may not be in a position to exploit the same. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals in this match.

First Goalscorer odds
Bradley Dack has been in excellent scoring form for Blackburn. Even though he has come up with two poor performances in consecutive matches, a home game can get the best out of the attacking midfielder. Dack has eight league goals this season and Wednesday have every reason to be worried. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Dack.
