Reason For Ipswich vs Blackburn Rovers Betting Tips

This is a big game for Blackburn you sense. They’ve had a few big results already this season but have failed to really build on them and put a run together to drag themselves clear of trouble. Having beaten Newcastle in their last Championship game, it’s important they get something here to keep that momentum going and against an unconvincing Ipswich side, they look capable of doing that.

The Tractor Boys were spared an embarrassing FA Cup exit against non-league Lincoln City last weekend by a Tom Lawrence equaliser but a 2-2 home draw has done little to ease the pressure on Mick McCarthy. He has been in charge of Ipswich since 2012, which is an eternity by the standards of the Football League these days but the worry is that things have just turned a little bit stale. They’ve won just 2 of their last 8 games coming into this and both were against badly out-of-form sides. A home win ratio of 38% in the Championship this term isn’t that impressive nor is their record of having scored just 1 goal per game on average in the Championship this season.

Only 3 sides have scored fewer goals than the Suffolk club and they might look on with a bit of envy at Blackburn, who have a couple of very capable strikers at this level, in the form of Danny Graham and Sam Gallagher. The former has really hit form of late and averages a goal every 169 minutes in the Championship this season, which is a fine return in a struggling side. With Ipswich not looking as convincing at the back of late, backing Graham to score anytime looks a decent shout here.

Rovers look capable of getting a result too. They are unbeaten in 3 matches in all competitions coming into this and their ability to avoid defeat against top four sides Huddersfield and Newcastle in their last two Championship games only bodes well. They’ve only been beaten by more than 1 goal once since August, so almost all their games have been close and backing Double Chance – Draw or Blackburn at 3/4 looks like the value bet here as you certainly can’t feel confident about Ipswich right now.
