Blackburn will be looking to improve their survival hopes on Tuesday night when they take on Sunderland at Ewood Park in the only Premiership game of the night. Sunderland are in decent form but do the ValueChecker wikis from each team show what the best bets in this match are?

Blackburn may not be everyone’s bet to win this game but that won’t matter for punters who are backing Blackburn to win the first half against Sunderland. The Blackburn ValueChecker wikis show that Steve Kean’s side have a great record in the first half of matches. Last season if all Premiership matches had finished at half time Blackburn would have made it into the Champions League. That suggests that Blackburn should definitely be backed to hold the lead at half time.

Sunderland’s record of coming back from a half time loss is pretty poor. The Sunderland ValueChecker wikis show that Sunderland are one of the worst teams in the Premiership for recovering from a first half defeat, last season Sunderland only managed to gain one point from the eight games they were losing at half time whilst the season before they were in a losing position at half time in thirteen games and they only managed to gain two points in total from those games. This suggests that Blackburn/Blackburn might be a very good bet in the half time/full time betting.

Sunderland are also a good team on which to bet on under 1.5 goals according to their wikis. Last season Sunderland were involved in 10 games that had under 1.5 goals and the season before it was eleven games that had under 1.5 goals. That may not look a high percentage but relative to the odds it represents a pretty decent return for under 1.5 goals backers and Sunderland are definitely one of the best teams to back for under 1.5 goals.
