Rooney to score at any time against Blackburn – 8/15

Rooney has a good record against Blackburn over the past four seasons, netting four goals. The 26-year-old striker is in impressive form and has managed 11 goals in eight games, taking the England forward’s tally to 28 for the season. So, Rooney to score at any time at Ewood Park is definitely worth a punt at 8/15.

Blackburn and Manchester United to draw – 4/1

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have struggled at Ewood Park of late, managing just two victories in the last 11 seasons. United rescued a point against Blackburn last season courtesy of Rooney’s 73rd-minute penalty. The Tipster reckons that 4/1 for the two sides to share the spoils on Monday night is excellent value.

Yakubu to score at any time against Man Utd – 2/1

Yakubu has played a key role in helping Blackburn move out of the relegation zone and to temporary safety this season. The 29-year-old has scored 14 goals – two shy of his best tally for a campaign – and netted in their shock 3-2 win at Old Trafford back in December. So, 2/1 for the Nigerian striker to repeat the trick against the Red Devils is a solid bet.

Under 3.5 cards in Blackburn v Man Utd – 4/5

Howard Webb will take charge of United’s trip to Ewood Park and the 40-year-old has dished out an average of just 1.3 cards in his last three games. Blackburn’s last four games have finished with under 3.5 cards, as have United’s last three games. Therefore, the Tipster feels that under 3.5 cards is excellent value at 4/5 on Monday night.

The long shot: Blackburn v Man Utd to finish 1-1 – 17/2

The two sides may be at opposite ends of the league table, but Blackburn will make it a difficult task for United. Four of the Red Devils’ last seven visits to Ewood Park have ended in 1-1 draws. So, audacious as it may sound, the Tipster’s long-range effort for this edition is for Blackburn and United to draw 1-1, at a rather tempting 17/2. You heard it here first.
