In action a day before many of the teams above them, Blackpool have the chance to close in on the play-off places but first they’ll have to get the better of Wolves in front of the television cameras at Bloomfield Road.
On the back of the impressive win against Blackburn, the Seasiders are BetVictor’s 23/20 favourites while the topsy-turvy visitors are 12/5 with Stan James to end Blackpool’s eight-match unbeaten run and it’s 5/2 via bet365 to finish all square.
The Seasiders’ abundance of stalemates under Michael Appleton might tempt some towards a wager on the Seasiders at 4/7 in Paddy Power’s ‘Draw No Bet’ market but Wolves have yet to share the spoils on the road, where they have lost seven of their eleven matches so it should be a conclusive affair, edged by the hosts.
Bet365 offer a generous 10/3 about Appleton’s charges shading it by a one-goal margin and it’s 15/2 courtesy of BetVictor to finish 2-1 in favour of Blackpool, as it did when the two sides last met here, back in November 2010.
In that one, the Seasiders led at the end of each half, a feat they’re 12/5 (Stan James) to repeat in this one and alternatively, for fans perhaps expecting a more comfortable afternoon for their team, there’s bet365’s 10/1 marked against a second consecutive 2-0 triumph and Skybet’s 3/1 for a home victory ‘to nil’.
