Blackpool are flying high after the emphatic 4-1 triumph over Middlesbrough in midweek and with the Seasiders enjoying home advantage again as they entertain Huddersfield, bookies expect to at least maintain their position by picking up a fifth victory in seven outings.
Stan James have installed Ian Holloway’s charges as 8/11 favourites at Bloomfield Road, where BetVictor quote the Terriers at 4/1 to halt Blackpool’s momentum and William Hill post 3/1 against the draw.
The visitors are unbeaten in four so the stalemate might attract some and it follows that a 2-2 scoreline at 14/1 with bet365 could lure the speculative. However, the Seasiders have a hundred percent record in front of their own supporters and have amassed an impressive dozen goals in three home fixtures so they should have the edge in this one.
In a clash that’s a safe-looking 8/11 via Stan James to produce three or more goals, Ladbrokes’ 15/2 for Holloway’s men to finish on the right side of a 2-1 scoreline isn’t without appeal and Skybet rate Blackpool at 11/4 to register any victory by a one-goal margin.
Although it could be a relatively close affair, the Seasiders can get their noses in front in the first 45 minutes and it’s 15/8 (Stan James) for them to lead at the end of each half. An early strike by either team, inside 27 minutes, is a 17/20 chance at BetVictor while bet365 chalk the Tangerines up at 1/2 to break the deadlock and Nathan Delfouneso is 13/2 (BetVictor) to grab that opening goal.
The loan striker, who bagged a brace on Tuesday, is 2/1 with Paddy Power to score at any time.
