Play-off hopefuls Leicester and Blackpool meet at the King Power Stadium this evening, although neither team is showing the sort of form which will secure them a place in the top six this season.
Leicester have improved since the arrival of Nigel Pearson, although with only two wins in their last six there is still significant scope for improvement.
Meanwhile, Blackpool have shown the same level of unpredictability which made them such a hit in the Premier League last season.
Two wins, two draws and two defeats tell just half the story: their losses have come against Burnley and Nottingham Forest, both teams in the bottom half of the table.
Meanwhile, fellow play-off contenders Leeds were thrashed 5-0 at Elland Road and upwardly-mobile Middlesbrough and Birmingham were held to 2-2 draws.
This suggests the result of this evening’s clash is anyone’s guess and makes Leicester’s status as odds-on favourites in bwin’s 3Way football betting market all the more surprising.
The home side go into the match priced at 3/4 for victory, with Blackpool available at 333/100 to secure all three points and the draw at 13/5.
Given Leicester have lost two of their last four games at the King Power Stadium, their price of 3/4 for the win looks too short to consider backing.
At 13/5, the draw looks far more favourable, with this being Blackpool’s most common result away from home.
A successful £25 free bet on Leicester to draw with Blackpool would return £90, with the free bet available to new customers who sign up for a bwin account.
Bigger returns could be secured by betting on a correct scoreline, with another 2-2 result looking the most tempting at 12/1.
Four of Blackpool’s last 20 games have finished 2-2, including their last two, while there have been four goals or more in four of the last five games involving the Tangerines.
One final bet to consider would be on there being more goals in the second half than there are in the first at odds of 11/10.
Leicester’s home games have featured more goals after the interval this season, with this also being true for Blackpool’s away games.
