Two wins in eight is not the kind of form that brings about promotion and Blackpool manager Ian Holloway will know that.
Nevertheless, he will see Saturday’s home game against Brighton & Hove Albion as an opportunity to make it three wins from nine and the Seasiders are rated as 19/20 favourites in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
However, the Seagulls’ impressive 12-match unbeaten run in the Championship has seen them move above Blackpool into the play-off positions.
They will look to stay there and are priced at 14/5 to take three points from their visit to Bloomfield Road, while odds of 23/10 are given for Albion to grab a respectable draw.
Despite their lack of points to show for it, Blackpool have scored in each of their last 12 league matches.
And with 59 goals in total from their 36 matches, they are the division’s second-highest scorers, behind table-toppers Southampton.
That means that they look likely to at least score in this match-up and are priced at 9/50 to do so, while the odds on neither side to keep a clean sheet are 18/25.
With both teams jumping between divisions in recent years, their August meeting was their first since 2007.
That ended 2-2 at the Amex Stadium and a repeat would hardly be a shock, given that both sides are committed to getting the ball down and playing attractive attacking football.
The odds on that result occurring again are 12/1, which would win new customers using their free £25 bet for joining bwin.com on this selection a huge £325 if the game does indeed end 2-2.
Recommended bet: Both teams to score @ 18/25
Outside punt: Blackpool 2-2 Brighton @ 12/1
