Friday night’s live Sky game will see a true clash of styles between two Championship play-off challengers.
Blackpool have climbed to fourth on the back of just one defeat and 20 goals in their past eight league outings.
By contrast, visitors Hull City sit four points behind (with two games in hand), boast the division’s tightest defence and are looking for a club record-equalling seventh consecutive clean sheet.
With both teams in good form, Blackpool’s record at Bloomfield Road of just one home loss since October means they start as 21/20 favourites in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, with Hull at 5/2 and the draw at 9/4.
However, it’s been 13 games since both teams scored in a game featuring Hull and it’s evens for that streak to outweigh Blackpool’s goal barrage tendencies.
Holloway’s entertainers have averaged over two goals a game in their recent run, but all bar one of those came after half-time, making 3/2 for Blackpool to score more in the second period than the first look good value.
Equally, Nick Barmby’s side have often stayed tough until late on, with three-quarters of the goals against them coming after the break.
So it’s likely most goals in this game will come in the second half at 23/20, while punters should also consider under 0.5 goals in the first half at 37/20.
Gary Taylor-Fletcher’s 84th-minute winner in the reverse fixture between the sides was one of those second-half strikes conceded by Hull and it’s 27/4 for Blackpool to repeat their opening-day 1-0 triumph and 9/2 for the visitors to go in level but come away with no points at the finish.
New customers using the free £25 bet they receive when registering with bwin would win £193.75 if the Seasiders again emerge 1-0 winners.
Even if Blackpool are able to maintain their scoring run, with Tigers fans seeing more than three goals in a game just four times this season, 3/10 for under 3.5 goals may be the best option of all.
Recommended bet: More goals in the second half than the first @ 23/20
Outside punt: Draw/Blackpool in the HT/FT market @ 9/2
