Man City vs Blackpool – Hosts to win clash of form teams

| 01.01.2011

Manchester City triumphed in an open and attacking game away at Blackpool in October and there is no reason to suggest that a similar result will not occur when the duo clash again at Eastlands.

Match Odds

Roberto Mancini’s team have shown title-challenging form of late with ten points from a possible 15 and will believe that they can secure another victory over Blackpool.

Manchester City’s betting odds are 2/7 to beat Blackpool and a victory could take them to the top of the standings depending on other results.

Blackpool have not been in bad form themselves of late, as they are unbeaten in their last five.

They are 9/1 to beat Manchester City and continue to push clear of the relegation places.

To Score At Any Time

With goals almost guaranteed at Eastlands, some of the best betting opportunities may be finding a player at longer odds to score within the 90 minutes.

Carlos Tevez is not only well rested after sitting out of City’s 4-0 romp over Aston Villa, but he also grabbed a double in the win over Blackpool earlier in the season.

He is likely to hit the target again, but is a short price to do so at 8/13.

Instead, Adam Johnson and James Milner may be dangerous if selected in the wide positions and are 6/4 and 7/4 respectively to strike against Blackpool.

For the visitors, DJ Campbell has all of their last three league goals and is 7/2 to score at any time.

Gary Taylor-Fletcher is another player who poses an attacking threat and can be supported in the same market at 9/2.

A £10 stake on a repeat of Manchester City’s 3-2 win would return £280. New customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
