FOOTBALL BETTING: Betrescue’s Sam Tomlinson takes his weekly look at all the big games in the football league and fancies the chances of Blackpool, Bristol City, Orient, Leeds and Macclesfield.
Strong on their own patch and with a play-off place still in their sights, everything is in place for Blackpool to secure three points as they welcome Nottingham Forest to Bloomfield Road.
The visitors no longer have anything to play for having missed out on automatic promotion and guaranteed themselves a top six berth and with half an eye on avoiding injury ahead of the play-offs, they may not be firing on all cylinders in a clash that is 6/5 with Betfred to throw up a home win.
Ian Holloway’s side meanwhile, are also cracking value at 2/1 courtesy of Partybets to prevail without conceding against a Forest outfit short of goals on the road.
Staying in the Championship, Bristol City can capitalise on Scunthorpe’s troubles by leaving South Humberside three points better off. Feeling the heat in a tight relegation scrap, the Iron have lost three in a row and so Victor Chandler’s 11/5 for the Robins to increase the tension at Glanford Park.
Dropping into League One, Leyton Orient are a home banker at 1/2 (Totesport) to defeat rock bottom Stockport and fresh from their victory against leaders Norwich, the O’s can prevail by at least two clear goals; an outcome bet365 quote at 6/4.
Leeds, whose three straight wins suggest they’re over their blip , are worth backing at 5/6 with 888Sport to see off Gillingham, while Betdaq’s 7/4 marked against a Hartlepool triumph as they host faltering Colchester, is the other eye catching bet in the division.
Chesterfield have won just one of their last eight and Victor Chandler’s 2/1 for them to go down at Macclesfield subsequently stands out in League Two, where William Hill make Grimsby 13/10 to overcome Torquay.
