The Championship - England's second division - sees Wolverhampton with a new manager at the helm hosting a Blackburn side that have not performed that badly on the road.

What used to be a perennial Premier League team has now quickly deterioted into a mid-table second division side, and the visiting Blackburn Rovers will need to find a way to accelerate into high gear should they harbour any ambitions of making it back to the top flight.

Though Rovers' dramatic fall has been well-documented this season, they come into this game riding a three-game winning streak in all competitions - including two league wins. This comes after a five-game winless streak that saw them only produce three goals.

They can be had at 2.80 over at for the outright win, and with a road record of 3-3-7 (W-L-T) along with the new sense of confidence in the squad, it isn't far-fetched. However, your money would be safer on the draw -  which is at 3.25 - given that they have more draws on the road than an other team in the 24-team league.

The hosts will be led for the first time by newly named manager Dean Saunders and he will certainly want to gear his crew up for a pivotal match as they try to avert goign near the relegation zone, from which they are only six points away. Wolves have a losing record at home - albeit slightly - with a 4-5-4 record and have allowed three more goals than they've notched.

Wolves are available currently at 2.38 for the win.

I prefer the over 2.5 here given that Wolves are expected to come out flying in their first match for their new skip and given that Blackburn away games have averaged 3.07 total goals, the 1.75 doesn't seem so bad.
