Blackburn vs Oldham predictions and betting tips for the EFL Cup fixture on Tuesday 13th August at Ewood Park. Both these sides have lost their first two matches in the Championship and League Two and changes are expected for both sides for this one.
It has been a poor start for both of these teams this season with two defeats coming in their openings to the Championship and League Two campaigns respectively. Blackburn’s defeat at Fulham this weekend was expected in our betting tips, but it is a surprise to see that they have only scored one goal from their two matches so far. Bradley Dack has failed to fire and that will be a slight worry for the Rovers fans. He could be rested for this match against Oldham.
The Latics are also coming into this tie off the back of a poor start to the season, losing away to Forest Green Rovers and then at home to Crewe this weekend. They themselves have also only scored one goal in those two matches. However, on a brighter note for Oldham fans, they did beat Liverpool U21 3-2 in an EFL Trophy fixture last week.
Having said that, the first of our tips for this match is going to be on under 2.5 goals to be scored. This is priced at 23/20 with Bet Victor and looks a good bet giving the goals record of the teams so far this season.
With changes expected to the starting line-ups, a low scoring match wouldn’t be a surprise and we can also back that up with a correct score prediction of a 2-0 win for Blackburn. Oldham failed to score in their opening away match of the season and they sit two divisions below Rovers, so shouldn’t really be troubling their North West rivals here. The odds for Blackburn to win 2-0 are 13/2 with Bet Victor.
Blackburn to win – 4/9
Draw – 18/5
Oldham to win – 13/2
