Tottenham will fancy their chances of taking full points from their visit to Ewood Park this weekend, when they take on bottom-of-the-table Blackburn Rovers.
Blackburn Rovers has won five of its last ten matches against Tottenham Hotspur, with two wins going the way of the Rovers. Two of Tottenham’s wins were achieved at Ewood Park, and Tottenham has lost at Ewood Park just once during this period.
The last meeting between these clubs at Ewood Park produced a 1-0 win for Tottenham.
Blackburn Rovers has won just one of its Premiership matches this season, beating a struggling Arsenal. While the club’s form in other tournaments has been somewhat better, the club is in such dire straits that it travelled to India for a win in the midweek, where they defeated Pune FC.
Blackburn has won two, lost two and drawn one of its last five matches. Eight goals have been scored by the club during this time – a stat inflated by a big win over Pune. Defence has been soft, with 10 goals conceded in the same period of time.
Tottenham, meanwhile, is one of the form teams in English football, with four wins and a draw on record for its last five matches – including wins in the Europa League, and a victory over Arsenal.
The club’s strikers are again proving to be ultra-consistent, with 10 goals put away in five matches. Defence has been less impressive, letting in 5 goals during the same period.
Blackburn desperately needs to win this match to turn its season around, while a top four place is on offer for the Spurs if they can put this match away.
Expect a big performance from Blackburn, but don’t expect Spurs to play for the draw after conceding 2 points against Newcastle last weekend.
Our Blackburn Rovers vs. Tottenham Hotspur betting tip is to go with the straight back bet on the Spurs at the best odds on offer.
