Blackpool vs Bolton – 6/5 big betting value on under 2.5 goals

| 14.05.2011

With a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United waiting on the final day of the season, Blackpool will feel they have to beat Bolton to have any chance of staying up and they can be expected to do so.

Match Odds

A win for Blackpool would give them a decent chance of moving out of the relegation places and they are 6/5 in the Premier League odds to pick up an imperative three points.

Bolton’s dreadful away form only enhances their chances of claiming victory, with Owen Coyle’s men losing ten of their last 11 Premier League away games and drawing the other.

The fact that they have nothing really to play for over the final two games of this season and that none of the last ten matches between Blackpool and Bolton have been won by the away side are also elements in their favour.

However, Bolton may fancy their chances of collecting a rare away win as Blackpool’s form at Bloomfield Road is hardly dominant.

Blackpool have triumphed in just one of their last ten home games and have collected fewer points on their own patch this season than any other top-flight club.

It is 21/10 in the Premier League odds that Bolton seal a victory that would almost certainly condemn Blackpool to relegation, while the draw that would not really be good enough for Ian Holloway’s team is priced at 5/2.

Over/Under 2.5 goals

Goals have been plentiful in the majority of the games involving Blackpool this season, but they have been much less open of late as the battle for survival has picked up.

There have been no more than two goals in any of Blackpool’s last three games, which has come after seven in succession saw a minimum of three goals scored.

Meanwhile, Bolton have managed a total of just four goals in their last 11 Premier League away fixtures and therefore 6/5 looks great value that the fixture witnesses fewer than 2.5 goals being scored.

A £30 stake on Blackpool beating Bolton 1-0 would return £210. New customers can sign up here for a free £30 bet.
