Betting Tip: Under 2.5 Goals @ 8/11 with betvictor

Two of the more tenacious teams in the Championship clash on Thursday night, with Steve Evans taking a bow in front of the Leeds faithful before hoping to steer the team to their first home win in several months.

There have been six games at Elland Road this season which has seen three draws and three defeats for the Whites, with Evans describing the team’s lack of home wins as “disgraceful” although perhaps he might be thwarted like his predecessors.

Blackburn are not pulling up any trees although they have managed to land a point away to Hull, QPR and Huddersfield this season, even if they went down 3-0 at MK Dons on their last road trip.

Gary Bowyer will want a reaction after his team lost the Lancashire derby at home to Burnley, with Rovers having failed to score in their past three matches although Jordan Rhodes had previously plundered seven goals in five games.

Leeds’ first two matches under Evans have seen United draw 1-1 away to Fulham and Bolton, respectable results that have potentially laid the foundations for success in this match although any victory could be achieved by the tightest of margins.

Under 2.5 Goals is our pick for the game, considering that Leeds will be determined to keep things tight and work openings as the match progresses, while Bowyer will want his team to be as robust as they were when holding Derby to a recent goalless draw.
