Blackburn vs Wrexham prediction, odds, expert football betting tips and best bets for FA Cup fourth round

The final match of this year’s FA Cup fourth round proper sees Championship side Blackburn host popular upstarts Wrexham at Ewood Park.

Rovers will have to be on guard for an upset, as just last season, then non-league Wrexham knocked out Championship side Coventry City in this very round.

Another upset could potentially be on the cards again this time around, as Blackburn are in poor form, sitting 19th in the league table, slightly threatened by relegation to the third tier, just nine points above the drop.

Wrexham, meanwhile, are pushing for a second straight promotion as they sit second in League Two, and knocked out League One side Shrewsbury town in the previous FA Cup round. However, they fell last time out in league play, beaten by bottom-half Newport County who are on a good run. It dropped Wrexham out of an automatic promotion spot, and they’ll be looking for a response here.

Blackburn vs Wrexham prediction, odds

  • Moneyline lean: Wrexham (+310)
  • Score prediction: Blackburn 0-1 Wrexham

These two teams are trending in opposite directions, and the gap in talent between 19th in the Championship and second in League Two isn’t as great as the gulf in tiers may indicate. Blackburn have gone seven winless in league play, and while they pummeled League One side Cambridge United 5-2 in their previous FA Cup match, Wrexham aren’t nearly as susceptible to such lopsided results even against more established clubs.

Blackburn vs Wrexham best bet

  • Pick: Under 3 total goals
  • Odds: +105 (DraftKings)

While Wrexham can score goals at will while Blackburn are leaky at the Championship level, these matches are often cagey, especially if an upset is on the cards. The favoured side often prevails in a shootout, and Wrexham will know they have to defend their best if they are to advance.

Wrexham have played three straight low-scoring matches, including their 1-0 FA Cup victory over Shrewsbury town in the third round just 20 days ago, and have gone under the total in five of their last seven.

Blackburn vs Wrexham prop bet

  • Pick: Elliot Lee anytime goal scorer
  • Odds: +300 (DraftKings)

Wrexham’s leading goal scorer is 3/1 to find the net, and that’s just too tough to pass up. Elliot Lee has been so much more than his 13 goals for the Red Dragons this year, but that number also can’t be ignored. He’s been a streaky goal scorer this season, scoring goals in chunks, and it’s been over a month since he last found the net, indicating he’s due.

Lee had two shots in the third round win over Shrewsbury Town, including one on target worth 0.3 xGOT. Even when he’s not finding the back of the net, he’s heavily involved in Wrexham’s end product. If they are to spring an upset, he will be a great shout to contribute on the scoresheet.
