Blackpool and Coventry City both have three wins out of their last five matches, but that is where the comparisons end for this Tuesday’s clash.
The Seasiders are the joint third strongest outfit in the Championship in front of their own fans this season with eight home wins. Needless to say, Coventry’s big fat total of zero wins on their travels makes the 9/2 odds offered on away win hopelessly short.
Blackpool are well worth backing for an outright home win at 3/5. Ian Holloway’s side are still stuck firmly in the brave attacking mode that saw them sensationally promoted the Premier League two years back and won’t have room for hesitation or complacency against Coventry as they aim to make another push for the play-offs.
Those looking for a bigger payout should disregard the3Way result market (which also offers a draw at 27/10) and look instead to goal bets.
One remarkable fact stands out above anything else ahead of this fixture – Coventry’s past eight defeats have, amazingly, all come by the margin of a single goal.
Eleven of the Sky Blues’ 15 league losses have been by that frustrating margin this season, making a bet on Blackpool to win by one goal via handicap betting a snip at 5/2.
Blackpool have kept six clean sheets at Bloomfield Road this season and with Coventry firing seven blanks away, a bet on a 1-0 home win looks decidedly tempting at 23/4.

Likewise, backing Coventry not to score at 23/20 looks a surefire way to double your money tomorrow.
