Blackpool v Exeter: Back all the goals in play-off cracker

| 27.05.2017

It’s widely regarded that the play-offs often bring some of the most entertaining football of the year, and that view has certainly held true in League Two.

The two semi-final clashes each produced 11 goals, with Exeter and Blackpool prevailing 6-5 on aggregate after a pair of thrilling ties.

And the signs point to another goal-fest at Wembley.

Exeter head into the final as favourites at 31/20, with Blackpool at 15/8.

There’s little in it however, the draw is just 9/4.

Exeter are 8/11 to go up, with the Tangerines at Evens.

The Grecians ended the regular year with just six wins from 17, but a run of 10 wins and two draws from the 12 games prior to that shows what they’re capable of.

Blackpool meanwhile, lost just three of their final 16 fixtures.

But while it’s less clear who will win, backing plenty of goals looks assured.

Four of Blackpool’s last five have seen over 2.5 goals, while each of Exeter’s last five have witnessed four goals or more.

So, over 2.5 looks assured at 5/6, while over 3.5 must be given consideration at 21/10.

More than 4.5 shouldn’t be ruled out either at 5/1.

The League Two Play-Off Final is now stranger to high-scoring affairs, with Dagenham and Rotherham playing out a 3-2 thriller in 2010.
