Bet on Blackpool vs Tottenham – Neutrals in for a treat

| 22.02.2011

It’s the fixture neutrals have been looking forward to all season and at Bloomfield Road punters can expect to witness a goal-fest despite Blackpool’s poor form.

Games involving Blackpool have produced the most goals in the Premier League this season, and with Spurs boasting the fifth best away attack in the Premier League, backing over 3.5 goals at 6/5 looks the pick of the market.

Match Odds

Blackpool may be a huge price at 4/1 to win at home, but they are currently on a six match winless streak while Tottenham Hotspur enter the game on the back of a four match winning streak.

That includes Spurs’ incredible victory over AC Milan last week and while Harry Redknapp’s side continue to fly high, punters should take the 4/6 for Spurs to win but look for value in the scoring markets.

Total Goals

Jonathan Woodgate returns to the physio table leaving Michael Dawson and William Gallas as Spurs’ only fit central defenders and considering Blackpool’s threat at corners, backing DJ Campbell to score the first goal at 7/1 looks great value.

65 per cent of Spurs goals have come from their midfielders so it will be a huge boost to Harry Redknapp that Luka Modric is fit to start and the Croatian is 7/2 to score any time.

The second half looks a great bet at 5/6 to produce more goals than the first half, but three of the four opening goals in the last four games at Bloomfield Road have come between the 10th and 15th minute.

Backing the first goal at 3/1 to happen between the 10 and 19.59 minute looks great value but the value of the day is backing Spurs at 7/1 to come from behind and win.

A £25 stake on Spurs beating Blackpool 3-2 would return £575. New customers can sign up here for a free Premier League bet worth £25.
