Blackburn (12) vs Hull (14)
Blackburn are placed 6 points behind a playoff spot and should for sure go for the win tonight. Total record is 12-8-11 with 43-38 in goal difference. They are coming from losing 0-1 at home vs Fulham (3) and although they could have grabbed a point there it wasn’t really expected taking in mind the form of the guests. I expect the hosts to go for the win from start tonight.
Hull are standing with total record of 11-7-13 and 43-44 in goal difference. They are in a terrible run of results but ended the run of 5 straight losses last time out when they grabbed a point against Reading (16). As I see it the guests doesn’t really have much to lose here, and that’s a factor for my pick. I expect them to take the chances as they come but at the same time, their defence looks shaky for sure.
* The reverse fixture ended with a 0-1 Blackburn win back in August, this match ended 3-0 last season
I think we can look forward to a exciting match with both teams going for the win from start. Blackburn will be considered as big favourites for sure, and I think that’s fair. But Hull isn’t as bad as its easy to think, and they are often participating in over 2.5 goals matches. I think that will happen again here.
