Tottenham vs Blackpool – Bet on Spurs avenging away defeat
Blackpool may not be in the relegation places at the moment but Ian Holloway’s side find themselves the joint favourites to be relegated at 1/4.
Having picked up just 10 points from a possible 54 in the Premier League in 2011, Blackpool are producing the kind of form that many expected from the Tangerines before the season started.
Tottenham Hotspur were left reeling after their 3-1 defeat at Bloomfield Road earlier in the season and Harry Redknapp’s side are 1/3 to avenge February’s loss.
Like Blackpool, Spurs have hit a poor run of form which all but rules them out of a top four finish and having won just one of their last eight games in the Premier League, punters should be weary of the draw which is backable at 4/1.
Except Blackpool have picked up just one point from a possible 21 in their last seven away games and it’s hard to look past Tottenham although we are tempted by the draw at 10/3 in the handicap betting which offers Blackpool a two-goal start.
Holloway has been lauded for his attacking approach as Blackpool manager but it could ultimately be goals conceded that see Blackpool relegated and Blackpool have the worst defence in the Premier League.
The last four Premier League games involving Tottenham have produced an average of 4.5 goals per game and we could be in for another thriller on Saturday with over 3.5 goals available at 11/10.
Spurs are 9/1 to reverse the result at Bloomfield Road and win 3-1, and as Spurs continue to share the goals around the team – their last nine goals have been scored by seven different players – we’re backing Gareth Bale to score the first goal at 7/1.
