Bet on a tight match between Blackburn and Blackpool

| 19.03.2011

The top of the Premier League has got very interesting over the past few weeks, with Manchester United slipping up and allowing the chasing pack to catch up.

However, it’s the bottom of the league that is really intriguing, with almost all the bottom half of the table struggling to pull away from the drop zone. Blackburn Rovers and Blackpool are no different and this is a huge game for both clubs.

After making a decent start as Rovers boss, things haven’t been going too well for Steve Kean in recent weeks, with his side picking up just one point from their previous five league games.

Things have hit the skids for the Seasiders too recently, with them picking up just four points from their last nine games thanks to one win and a draw.

However, Blackpool have the seventh best away record in the league, meaning they look pretty tempting at 7/2 for the win.

Rovers came out on top 2-1 in their meeting at Bloomfield Road earlier this season, with Brett Emerton getting a last minute winner for the visitors. Another 2-1 win for Rovers is currently priced at 7/1.

However, with two teams in such poor form, this promises to be a tight and tense game. Backing the draw at 5/2 looks a very tempting bet.

A £20 stake on Blackpool and Blackpool to draw 2-2 would return £280. New customers can sign up here for free bets worth up to £60.
