Blackburn vs Bury predictions and betting tips for their EFL League One fixture on Monday February 12th with an anytime goalscorer tip and correct score prediction included
Crucial points are stake at both ends of the League One table in this game with Blackburn seeking their third win at Ewood Park this year as they strive to secure automatic promotion to the Championship. Rovers have lost just one league game during 2018 and will host a Bury outfit eager to win for the second time in three away outings as they attempt to escape the relegation zone. Both teams will be eager to maintain their decent form of recent weeks, so read our Blackburn vs Bury predictions below and get yourself a free bet to use on our betting tips for today.
A late Adam Armstrong goal earned Blackburn a first victory in three matches when they won 2-1 at Portsmouth last weekend. Rovers had previously lost a first game this year when beaten 2-0 at improving Plymouth before recovering from a two-goal deficit to draw 2-2 with struggling Oldham at Ewood Park. Blackburn were also denied at the venue last month by lowly Northampton but they are unbeaten on home soil in league action since late September. Visitors Bury have recovered from a woeful sequence of form during December and early January during which seven successive League One games were lost before earning a first away win of the season at Oxford via a 2-1 scoreline. The Shakers have subsequently drawn three of four matches to suggest that this will be a closer contest than their 3-0 defeat by Rovers earlier in the campaign. Therefore, the first of our Blackburn vs Bury predictions is for a home win via a one-goal margin.
Although Adam Armstrong has netted three times in two games for Blackburn and Danny Graham has been a reliable striker for much of the campaign, the versatile Charlie Mulgrew has also caught the eye this term with twelve league goals scored this term. Mulgrew is a free-kick specialist besides being the nominated penalty taker and he could be considered as a decent anytime goalscorer tip. Therefore, the second of our Blackburn vs Bury betting tips is for Mulgrew to score anytime.
Bury failed to find the net for the first time in five outings when drawing 0-0 with Southend at Gigg Lane last weekend but the Shakers were also registering a first clean sheet in league action since late November. Containing the Blackburn attack will be a more difficult problem for Bury as only Wigan and Plymouth have denied Rovers a League One goal from mid-October onwards. As Blackburn have not recorded a clean sheet this year, our correct score tip to complete these Blackburn vs Bury predictions is for a 2-1 home win.
Odds for Blackburn to win this match are 8/15 with Bury priced at 5/1 to claim victory, while a draw is offered at 16/5.
Blackburn are quoted at 13/10 to win this match and with more than 2.5 goals to be scored during the game, while taking into account our football predictions, a ‘Yes’ for Both Teams to Score is available at 5/6.
Adam Armstrong has been Last Goalscorer in the last two Blackburn games and can be backed at 9/2 to complete the scoring in this fixture.
