Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Despite slipping in recent weeks, Leeds have been very impressive this season, constantly receiving favourable tips in the football predictions stakes.  One win in their last four games will have irked Marcelo Bielsa, and he will want to reverse it. A Leeds win is 6/5 with Ladbrokes.

2 We fancy:

Even though the away side are favourites to win, Blackburn have shown flashes of potential this season and are always worth a shout in your weekend football predictions. The hosts should have enough attacking intent to get a goal, and that is why a 2-1 Leeds win at 8/1 with bet365 looks a promising football score prediction.

3 It's a long shot, but…

Dack is the clear threat for Blackburn in this match, but it was Jansson who netted the winner the last time these two sides met. The Sweden international also scored a late equaliser in the draw with Brentford last weekend and, if he avoids suspension, is worth a look as a football prediction in this one. The defender is 12/1 to score anytime with William Hill.

One to Watch: Bradley Dack

Dack has been the key man in Blackburn’s Championship previews so far this season, and his return of six goals means he is likely to feature in more and more Championship predictions in 2018-19.  With three goals in his last four games he is at 11/2 with Sky Bet to score first this weekend.

Blackburn Rovers vs Leeds United Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Leeds lay down a marker against Blackburn?

Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off between Blackburn Rovers and Leeds United, which this Championship preview concerns, is a must in your football betting tips for the weekend.

Leeds are flying high in third place under Marcelo Bielsa and look to have their best chance of promotion for some time, while Blackburn have been generally impressive in their first season back in the Championship.

However, the feeling is that Leeds will have a bit too much for their hosts, particularly as promotion rivals West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United have snuck ahead of them into the top two places in the Championship table. 

There is plenty of profit to be made in football bet tips and predictions in this game, with this Championship preview expecting an attacking encounter at Ewood Park.

With that in mind, a more low-risk option is an over 2.5 total goals scored bet, available at 19/20 with Betfair. 

Predicted Score: Blackburn Rovers 1 - 2 Leeds United
