Newcastle vs Blackburn by Shibby

Another Championship clash today for me. The game will kick off at 15:00 and will be played at St. James Park, Newcastle. The game will see top of the table Newcastle United host Blackburn Rovers.

Clearly Newcastle are hot favourites for this clash and the odds reflect that. I don't see any value in a Newcastle win so I'll be staying away from that on this occasion. Newcastle are in great form and are currently sat in first, which many punters would have expected. Rafa seems to have got things right at the club and wants to bring back Premiership football to the Newcastle faithful.

Newcastle have won their last 9 games in all competitions and this will no doubt give the players confidence. They haven't lost since their 2-0 defeat at home to Wolves back in September. What stands out to me is that they do sometimes concede sloppy goals. They've conceded goals recently against PNE, Brentford, Norwich and Cardiff. So they are not perfect in any way.

With Blackburn being in the bottom 3, I expect Newcastle players to underestimate the Blackburn squad and I think they will all expect three points today. With Blackburn still fighting at the foot of the table I expect them to turn up today, everyone likes a trip to Newcastle as it's one of the best stadiums in England.

Blackburn's last 5 games has seen them win two, draw one and lose two. However, what stands out to me is their goals for, they have scored 7 goals in their last 5 games which shows they are a threat.

I think that odds of 2.15 with 10Bet offers huge value for my bet, therefore, I'll be backing BTTS @ 2.15 with 10Bet. Good Luck.

Bet: Both teams to score @ 2.15 with 10bet
Result: 0-1 (lost)
