Bloomfield Road promises to be in for a potential fire-cracker of a game this weekend as Blackpool and Millwall lock horns after scoring eight goals between them in midweek.
Although the two teams last met back in 2007, Blackpool haven’t beaten the Lions in any competition since 1998, but that stat may be about to change.
The Seasiders look at a decent price in bwin’s 3way football betting market at evens, while Millwall are available at 12/5 and a draw can be found at 5/2.
Admittedly, Blackpool have had an indifferent return to the Championship after a fleeting visit to the Premier League and with just six wins out of 15, currently sit just outside the play-off places.
But after a stunning 5-0 win against Leeds at Elland Road on Wednesday – their sixth game to contain four or more goals this season – they are brimming with confidence and looking for a big win. Results such as 3-1 at 27/2 and 3-2 at 22/1 stand out almost as much as the club’s tangerine shirts.
Blackpool have scored ten after the break in seven games at home, while Millwall score almost 75% of their goals in the second period. If you bet on over 2.5 goals to be scored in the second half at 3/1 with bwin’s free £25 bet for new customers, you could rake in £100.
Millwall will be quietly confident, though, having picked up their form after a poor start by winning their last three in emphatic style, scoring ten goals in the process.
However, their away form is far from perfect, with only one win on their travels so far this season – last month’s shock 3-0 triumph over Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
Their goal tally is good with seven scored, but they have allowed 12 to go in at the other end. With this game bound to produce plenty of attacking action, then, over 4.5 goals could prove a tempting option at 4/1.
In addition, a closer look at the statistics shows that both of these teams have come to life in the second halves of their matches this season.
Blackpool have scored ten after the break in seven games at home, while Millwall score almost 75% of their goals in the second period.
If you bet on over 2.5 goals to be scored in the second half at 3/1 with bwin’s free £25 bet for new customers, you could rake in £100 if it comes in.
