Burnley v Blackburn Rovers Match Betting Odds Market.

Burnley are the clear favourites to win this game with the online bookmakers offering out a current best price of 13/10 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) for Sean Dyche’s side to continue their recent good form.

The Draw has happened more times at Turf Moor Stadium than it has at Ewood Park Stadium when these two sides have met each other over the years and with both sides in excellent form at the moment I can see some shrewd punters getting on this game to finish all square come the full time whistle at a current best price of 12/5 with Betfred (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers)

Blackburn Rovers head into this game having scored 9 goals in their previous two matches and confident will no doubt be extremely high indeed through out the whole squad, so their current price of 5/2 with Stan James (£10 Free Bets No Deposit Required for New Customers) does look over priced and will be sure to attract plenty of their own fans as well as neutrals to get on.

Burnley v Blackburn Rovers Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

A difficult game to start the weekend’s live football with as both sides have been in excellent form as they head into this game at Turf Moor Stadium on saturday lunch time.

Burnley are riding high in 3rd place of the league table after five games played and another victory would ensure they at least kept that position, but with Blackburn Rovers seemingly having now found their feet by smashing both Barnsley and Derby County it’s difficult to see this game not having many goals scored and one that really could go either way on the day despite the online bookmakers prices suggesting this should be a comfortable home win.

The average goals per game statistics suggest that this game is likely to see a few goals go in on saturday afternoon and as such the goals market looks the perfect place to look at as this one could end up 4-4 on saturday afternoon with the form both sides have been in recently.
