Bet against Baggies winning

| 15.01.2011

It’s a crunch fixture that could decide the fate of both clubs’ seasons and while it’s not a six-pointer, it’s certain to affect the relegation battle.

A seventh straight loss for West Bromwich Albion would see them dragged into a relegation battle – they are 5/2 to go down having been 5/1 earlier in the season – but a win would shift the momentum back in their favour with games against Blackburn and Wigan Athletic coming up.

Match Odds

Blackpool continue to amaze in the division but a couple of consecutive losses would drag them back into the relegation race (7/2 to go down), but a win against West Brom would leave them needing just nine points for the magical 40 mark.

Blackpool won 2-1 at Bloomfield Road earlier in the season and they offer all the value in the market at 7/2 to beat West Brom – however they have failed to win in any of their last 10 trips to the Hawthorns.

It’s hard to justify West Brom being odds-on 8/11 favourites considering their miserable form entering this game, and Ian Holloway’s side are full of confidence following their double success over Liverpool.

Total Goals

In the last eight clashes between the two neither side has kept a clean sheet and considering Blackpool’s impressive away form this year, both teams to score at 1/2 looks a decent bet.

In these eight games there have been 30 goals scored and punters should take a look at the 16/5 for over 4.5 goals in the game, and the 33/1 for Blackpool to win 3-2.

DJ Campbell is the hottest striker in English football at the moment with five goals in five starts and the Blackpool striker is 9/4 to score any time and his side are 12/1 to come from behind and win.

A £25 stake on Campbell scoring first and Blackpool winning 3-2 would return £3770. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
