Expert Betting Tips
Bookmakers believe that Luton Town will win. However, we suggest considering the opposite option. In the previous weekend, Blackburn Rovers made up for the defeat and got a very important victory over Middlesbrough. The club has a really good chance to return to the elite of English soccer. In the first half of the season, the Rovers could not keep a comfortable lead over the Hatters. I expect that this time Blackburn will act more decisively and will not miss the opportunity to score the next three points in the Championship. I suggest betting on the following lines:
- W2 for 3.072;
- BTTS for 1.90;
- ITO2 (1.5) for 3.15.
