Premier League betting – Wolves vs. Blackburn
Wolves vs Blackburn betting odds, tips & free bets
They don’t come as important as this in the Premier League, the winner of this game will be certain of another year in the English top flight, while a loss for the other team and a win for either Birmingham, Wigan or Blackpool could see the loser relegated to the Npower Championship. Six-pointer, more like multi-million pounder. Both of these teams have had a brief spell of relative good form; however it comes down to this game as even a draw could see both relegated.
Wolves League Position: 16th League Form: DLDWW
Wolves have had a torrid season with injuries to key player Kevin Doyle coming at the exact wrong time in the season, but Steven Fletcher has stepped into the fray well and has scored 3 goals in his last 2 starts meaning that he is almost certain to start the game perhaps alongside the fit again Doyle. Steven Fletcher is therefore a great bet at odds of 10.0 on PaddyPower to score a brace as he did against West Brom. Wolves have conceded one goal in their past 3 games while Blackburn have scored 1 goal in their last 3 games, so both teams to score at odds of 1.67 on SkyBet could be a good bet.
The return of England international Mathew Jarvis is very important for Mick McCarthy’s side and the winger could cause Blackburn’s Gael Givet a few problems, his crosses will mostly be nullified by the superb Christopher Samba, so he may be forced to go more direct and try some shots himself and with 5 goals to his name this season he is good value at 13.0 on SkyBet.
Blackburn League Position: 15th League Form: LLWDD
Blackburn have owed much of their good fortune of late to one man and that man is Christopher Samba, the Congolese international single handily kept them in the game against Manchester City and has produced some great display in the past weeks. One thing you can also rely on the big central defender to do is to challenge in the air at set-pieces, something which he has managed 4 times this season, so a bet on him scoring last could be a good one at odds of 19.0 on PaddyPower could definitely prove valuable.
Steve Kean’s men have seen a changing front line all season impact on their goalscoring and with no certain frontman, goalscoring duties should fall to the wingers Marme Biam Diouf and Junior Hoillet who could provide some serious trouble for the shaky Wolves backline.
The end result is most likely to be a draw but with two wins in two games under their belt you may just fancy Wolves to pip Blackburn in this sure to be hotly contested game, so with tensions high why not bet on whether there will be a red card in this integral fixture, do you think anyone will lose their heads in the final tie of the season.
