Fulham vs Blackpool – Home win to nil on the cards

| 03.04.2011

Fulham have been in fine form at home of late to give themselves some breathing space from the Premier League relegation places and they should have enough to beat Blackpool at Craven Cottage.

Match Odds

It is 4/7 in the Premier League odds that Fulham beat Blackpool and they have taken maximum points in four of their last five home games, while also remaining unbeaten at Craven Cottage in 2011.

Furthermore, they also have a good record in their most recent showdowns with Blackpool, losing just one of the last 14 league meetings between the pair.

While Fulham have been making moves up the table, Blackpool have gradually begun to slip in the other direction and are now just one point from falling into the relegation places.

One victory in ten Premier League games is largely responsible for their current position, with Blackpool’s betting odds 9/2 to win at Fulham.

Fulham have drawn more games than any other team in the Premier League this season and it is 3/1 that the game ends all square, which would help both teams in their quests for survival.

To Win To Nil

No team has conceded more Premier League goals than Blackpool this season, which makes it hard to see them keeping a clean sheet at Fulham.

Meanwhile, Fulham have shut out the opposition in five of their last seven home games and despite Blackpool’s adventurous style, they may still struggle to break through at Craven Cottage, especially as striker DJ Campbell is serving the last game of a suspension.

Therefore, Fulham’s odds of 15/8 to win to nil against Blackpool could be decent value, while it is 11/8 that Mark Hughes masterminds another clean sheet.

A £20 stake on the scorecast of Fulham beating Blackpool 2-0 and Zoltan Gera scoring the opening goal would return £800. New customers can sign up here to take advantage of free bets totalling up to £60.
