Sunday could be the day to take on Blues

LIVERPOOL v/s CHELSEA
SUNDAY, 4.00PM, SKY SPORTS
THERE is only one point separating Blackburn and Wigan towards the bottom of the table and both clubs will be preparing themselves for another long, hard relegation struggle. This is far from the most exciting fixture of the weekend, but that doesn’t matter if a good bet can be found.

Blackburn have been poor so far this term, managing to beat just Everton and Blackpool. However, they were fairly unlucky against Chelsea last weekend and their home record against the lower teams in the league is strong. They won six of their seven home matches against bottom-seven finishers last season with five of those victories coming by the half-time / full-time double result.

Wigan generally struggle on their travels, losing 15 of their past 22 away games, including 11 by the half-time / full-time result. In fact, five of their last six away defeats have come by the double result and they have only taken one point from five visits to Ewood Park since promotion to the Premier League in 2005.

Although Sam Allardyce’s side have not being playing particularly well this campaign, this is the type of game they often win and I’ll be backing them at 5/6 with Paddy Power. The half-time / full-time double result is 2/1 with 888sport and that is also worth a small bet.

Spread bettors are advised to buy goals at 2.5 with Sporting Index – there have been three or more in nine of Wigan’s last 13 away trips to bottom-half sides.
