Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 1/2 @ 888sport
In what is a real relegation six-pointer at the foot of the Championship table, Blackpool will welcome Huddersfield to Bloomfield Road on Tuesday night.
Starting with the hosts, while Blackpool might have stunned almost everyone across England last month as they claimed a 4-1 romp against Premier League outfit Nottingham Forest, it appears that was just a minor boost for Mick McCarthy’s side. Last seen over the weekend putting in a nightmare display as they were hit with a 3-0 drumming at the hands of Middlesbrough, the former Cardiff boss has seen his side lose each of their last three domestic contests. With that run highlighted by a deserved 2-0 loss away at Watford on January 14th, the Oranges have also won just one of their previous 13 matchups across all formats. With that extended blip stemming all the way back to October 29th, Blackpool have also shown some rather glaring issues at the back. In fact, Tuesday’s hosts have failed to record a single clean sheet over the past five months.
As for the visitors, while Huddersfield might have been last seen over the weekend playing out a 1-1 draw at home against QPR, Mark Fotheringham’s men are enduring their own extended blip. Signing off January with a 2-0 loss away at Coventry, the Terriers have now failed to win any of their previous five matchups across all formats and are at the heart of a relegation scrap. Opening the midweek fixtures sat two points adrift of safety, the Yorkshire-based outfit have also shown some glaring issues on the road this season. On a run that is highlighted by a 3-1 drumming at the hands of Preston last month, Huddersfield have collected just a single point from their last three showdowns away from the John Smith’s Stadium. With Fotheringham’s side seeing each of their previous eight matchups finish with over 1.5 goals, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Blackpool vs Huddersfield 1/2 for Tuesday’s Championship battle @ 888sport
