Blackpool 2/9 to end up in drop zone

| 06.05.2011

Blackpool are 2/9 to find themselves in the relegation zone at the end of this weekend’s fixtures according to Ladbrokes.

West Ham aren’t given much chance of escaping at 1/14 with Wigan 4/11 to occupy a spot in the bottom three. It’s 66/1 Blackburn find themselves adrift.

Chelsea travel to Manchester United at the weekend for the title decider and it’s 4/1 the visitors have a goal disallowed. Howard Webb is 9/2 to award Manchester United a penalty and it’s 2/1 he books any player for diving.

Carlo Ancelotti is odds-on (1/2) to not be in charge come the first game of next season and his counterpart Ferguson is 5/1 to retire in the summer with the double still firmly in his sights. It’s 9/2 United win neither trophy.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “There’s still plenty to play for at both ends of the table and punters aren’t holding back. We’re expecting a colossal weekend of turnover with Manchester United one of the best backed selections on the coupon.”

He added: “Webb taking charge adds extra spice to an already highly charged fixture and the specials have all been popular. Hopefully he doesn’t brandish too many cards during a match which could easily boil over.”
