Rhodes 4/1 to fire Blackburn to victory

In an exciting midweek Championship clash between Leeds United and Blackburn Rovers, Coral’s bet of the day comes in the form of the visitors securing victory at Elland Road and star striker Jordan Rhodes scoring anytime at 4/1.

Rovers will travel to face their Yorkshire opposition with plenty of confidence, with the hosts having lost their last four meetings and recording no win in seven, so the Red Roses will fancy their chances of securing another three points.

Perfect time to play Leeds

Leeds recently came under the spotlight once again after controversial Italian owner Massimo Cellino decided to dismiss another manager from the club, this time it was Uwe Rosler playing the familiar role of victim.

Steve Evans has since taken charge, but is without a win under his belt yet, and Blackburn will look to pile more early pressure on the new Elland Road appointment on their travels from Lancashire this midweek.

The home side have been heavily reliant on striker Chris Wood this term for the majority of their attacking prowess, something that Blackburn can easily thwart, with Gary Bowyer’s side holding a joint-second best defensive record of teams below ninth-place in the domestic table so far.

Rhodes relishes Leeds liaison

Rovers’ rampant sharpshooter Rhodes is an obvious key danger for Bowyer’s Blackburn in this Championship clash, with their top scorer having bagged seven goals in his last eight outings this campaign.

The second tier marksman has four strikes against Leeds in his previous three encounters with these out-of-form Yorkshiremen, making him as low as 5/4 to net anytime in this clash, with a win taking the visitors above their opponents in the standings.

So it makes sense to back our bet of the day of Rhodes to fire past Leeds anytime in a Blackburn triumph at Elland Road, with incredible odds of 4/1 available!
