Blackburn Rovers will be hoping to disrupt Leicester City’s momentum when the two sides meet in the Championship on Sunday. We have picked out some of the best markets available ahead of this second tier battle.

Blackburn vs Leicester Betting Tips

  • Kasey McAteer to score anytime – 21/10
  • Leicester and both teams to score (Yes) – 12/5

Team news

Blackburn boss Jon Dahl Tomasson only has two concerns heading into the weekend. Harry Leonard is out injured, while Tyrhys Dolan is currently unavailable through illness, so he will be assessed late.

Defender Callum Doyle is set to miss three to four months through injury for Leicester City, but Enzo Maresca has no fresh injury concerns ahead of their trip to Ewood Park.

Kasey McAteer to score anytime @ 21/10

Kasey McAteer has had a bright start to the season, just as the Foxes have. The 21-year-old winger has scored four goals in the Championship in six appearances so far – the most of any Leicester player.

The youngster is currently Maresca’s biggest goal threat and he is playing with great confidence, which has helped Leicester fly out of the traps in the second tier. He also heads into this game having scored against Liverpool in their Carabao Cup defeat on Wednesday

He will be relishing the opportunity to add to his tally at Blackburn this weekend given the fact that they are very susceptible conceding goals, having seen 16 goals go past them already.

Only Rotherham United have conceded more goals than Rovers in the Championship after eight matches. This will come as music to McAteer’s ears.

Leicester and both teams to score (Yes) @ 12/5

The Foxes are certainly living up to expectations this season. Many tipped they would run away with the Championship and they lead the pack after eight matches with 21 points.

Blackburn are a team that find themselves blowing hot and cold as each game comes and as already mentioned the level of which they are conceding goals is holding them back.

However, they are not having problems with scoring goals themselves. They have found the back of the net on 12 occasions so far and there has been only one game in the league so far in which they have failed to get on the scoresheet.

Leicester should have too much quality for them on the pitch, but they certainly have the talent to cause Maresca’s men some problems of their own. After all, they fired five goals past Cardiff City in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
