Bet on goals at the most exciting ground in the Premier League

| 03.02.2011

While punters scour betting markets for value, the 11,000 that applied for a season ticket at Bloomfield Road this season have found the bargain of the season.

£440 was the cost of the most expensive season ticket to watch Blackpool this season and, 11 home games into the season, the Tangerines faithful are yet to witness a game producing less than 2.5 goals.

Blackpool have scored in every home game this season and every away team has managed to find the net, and with 41 goals at Bloomfield Road, only St James Park (41) and Old Trafford (45) have produced more.

Nobody can argue that Blackpool have brought an added spice to the Premier League this season, but their home form could well be what sends them down after suffering their sixth home defeat of the season at West Ham last night.

Having been as long as 6/1 around the Christmas period, Blackpool are now into 9/4 to be relegated, and West Ham are out to 8/11 from 4/7.

Bloomfield Road takes a break on Saturday when Blackpool visit Merseyside to play Everton, and the Tangerines could find themselves deeper in a relegation battle as David Moyes’ side are as short as 1/2 to beat Blackpool.

But it’s been Blackpool’s away form that has amazed with five wins from 13 games and Blackpool may offer a bit of value at 11/2 to win considering Everton are winless in their last five games.

The relegation battle is sure to come down to the wire as the bottom of the Premier League continues to remain tight, and following the midweek result’s, the relegation odds have changed dramatically.

Don’t rule out Blackburn (12/1) and Newcastle (10/1) being dragged into the relegation battle.

A £25 stake on West Brom being relegated would return £87.50. New customers can sign up here for a free Premier League bet worth £25.
