Blackburn heading back to the top?
The first selection of the day comes in the Championship where Blackburn Rovers face Ipswich Town. Michael Appleton has an almost fully fit squad to pick from as new signings Lee Williamson and DJ Campbell – the same man who scored 10 goals in 17 appearances for Ipswich – go in to his team. They sit mid-table after a first of the season slump but have lost just once in their last eight in a more impressive bout of form. Ipswich, on the other hand, have been indifferent this term as Mick McCarthy has gradually taken them away from the relegation places. Unlike Blackburn though, they’ve all but one of their last six and go in to this one devoid of any good form. Significantly, they’ve failed to win any of their last three on the road and haven’t beaten Blackburn at Ewood Park since 1962. The odds seem stacked with BLACKBURN, but Ladbrokes still offer the cracking price of 19/20 and that’s what we’re backing in the first pick of the day.
Form points to draw in Aberdeen
Aberdeen welcome St Mirren to Pittodrie in the second pick of today’s Dunter. Although much pre-match focus has been on the state of the park at Aberdeen, there should be considerable attention drawn to the recent form of St Mirren and, in particular, their on-loan Portuguese signing Esma Goncalves. The Rio Ave forward joined Danny Lennon’s side before the League Cup semi-final with Celtic and has gone on to hit four goals in three games, all of which St Mirren have won. Although an away win sits at just over 2/1, it may be asking too much of the St Mirren to make it four in four. Aberdeen have been in good form this season under Craig Brown and could go back in to the top four with a win today. Their home form has been a problem though as they’ve won just three from 12, plus the fact they’ve failed to win any games in five, but with the return of Ryan Jack and Gary Naysmith they should continue to improve. Significantly, five of the last eight between these teams has finished in a draw and you’d have to go back to May 2011 to find a winner between them at Pittodrie. Surely the DRAW has to be the best bet? Well, that’s what we’ve gone for at odds of 23/10.
So for the Double it’s a simple 5.43/1. It’s huge odds considering the real chance both bets have of coming up. Blackburn have definitely turned a corner under Michael Appleton and should have enough to beat an average Ipswich team. As for Aberdeen against St Mirren, the form points to a draw between two evenly matched sides. We’ve had some good form over the last few weeks with two wins, but today is a bigger bet and we fancy another one to set us up for a fantastic February.
