Blackburn vs Man. United by Jamesington
With Manchester United sitting at the top of the Premier League and Blackburn scrapping to keep themselves out of the bottom three the two teams would, at first, not seem to have much in common - however there is one thing which they share and that is an eye for goal. Both teams have strikers who can find the back of the net and so this should be an entertaining game for a neutral.
From a betting perspective there is a little value on offer in a match where the outcome is actually quite hard to predict. Rooney to score anytime is available at 1.8 (with various firms) and Blackburn's in-form Junior Hoilett - 3 goals in his past 3 games - is available at 5.0 (Bet 365). Normally I would suggest backing both of these with the hope of a healthy profit but for me there is a much safer bet on offer at a relatively good price.
Manchester United have scored 15 goals in their past 5 away Premier League matches, against the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham, so Blackburn should really have little chance of stopping the reigning champions from scoring. MAN UNITED TO SCORE OVER 1.5 GOALS is available at a standout 1.5 (Boylesports, 10pts) and this is a really incredible price given United's recent track record in front of goal.
Pile in on this price for a simple, safe profit.
