Blackpool vs Spurs – Visitors can score the goals for victory

| 18.12.2010

Tottenham should have no problems scoring goals as they head to Blackpool, but if they have the capability to leave with the three points remains in the balance.

Match Odds

Blackpool have been particularly impressive on their travels so far in their debut Premier League season, winning four games away from home.

However, they have not been so dominant on their own patch, winning just two of their six games which includes keeping no clean sheets.

With Tottenham having more of a focus on attack than defence, they should have little trouble finding the target against Blackpool, who have allowed their opposition more shots on target than any other Premier League club this season.

Tottenham’s betting odds are 4/6 to beat Blackpool, but they have only won one game outside the capital all campaign, which was at Stoke.

Blackpool are 4/1 to beat Tottenham, although they have failed to beat their opponents since 1966.

Despite this, the draw could be the most logical result, with Blackpool failing to win back-to-back games in the Premier League as yet.

Meanwhile, they have only lost one of their last seven games, which could make the draw a promising betting opportunity at 11/4.

Over/Under 2.5 goals

Blackpool’s poor defensive record and Tottenham’s ability to score goals make over 2.5 goals in the clash at Bloomfield Road almost a certainty.

Premier League betting odds have it at 8/15 that at least three goals are scored and this bet is backed up by the fact that only Blackburn have prevented Blackpool scoring at least two goals at home this season.

Furthermore, Tottenham have managed to keep just one clean sheet in their last 13 Premier League encounters.

A £10 bet on the scorecast of Tottenham winning 3-1 and Rafael Van der Vaart scoring first could result in a payout of £400. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
