Blackpool Preview – Can Pool make it four wins on the spin?

Blackpool won promotion from EFL League One via the play-off route last season and have not looked back since. The Tangerines have had an excellent campaign back in the Championship so far, collecting 51 points from 36 games.

Blackpool are still in the play-off picture after picking up three successive wins. Pool are 12th position at present, six points behind the final play-off berth. Overall, Neil Critchley’s boys have won 14, drawn nine and lost 13 of 36 Championship matches.

Our betting prediction:
Blackpool to score first

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1207 GMT, Tuesday 15 March)

The Seasiders’ top-six hopes are still alive after back-to-back wins over Reading, Stoke City and Swansea City. Can Blackpool make it four victories on the trot with a massive three points in midweek? The bookies are offering the tempting odds of 12/5 for a home triumph.

Sheffield United Preview – Will the Blades get the points at Bloomfield Road?

Sheffield United have been one of the form teams in the Championship over the last few months. Since taking over from the sacked Slavisa Jokanovic in November, Paul Heckingbottom has turned the Blades into genuine promotion candidates.

Despite their excellent form, Sheffield United were disappointing at the weekend, crashing to a heavy 4-1 away loss at the Coventry Building Society Arena. That was United’s second away defeat in a row having been beaten at Millwall at the end of last month. They have taken just one point from their last three on the road, which will be a slight concern for Heckingbottom.

Sheffield United would love to get back on track with three points at Bloomfield Road on Wednesday. The away win is nicely priced at 6/5.


Blackpool vs Sheffield United Betting Advice

Blackpool left Bramall Lane with all three points back in October. Keshi Anderson netted the only goal of the game in the Steel City 14 minutes from time.

The fixture back in October was the first meeting between the pair since they clashed at Bloomfield Road in a League One affair back in January 2016, which ended in a goalless draw.


Key Facts – Blackpool vs Sheffield United Betting Tip

  • Blackpool have won three in a row
  • Sheffield United have lost two away games on the bounce
  • The Blades are six points above Pool in the table


This is a massive matchup for both teams. A home win will take Blackpool to within three points of the Blades, but a Sheffield United victory would open a nine-point gap and could put paid to the Tangerines’ slim play-off hopes.

It is likely to be a tense and tight affair, which neither team will want to lose, so backing the draw could be the way to go in this one. The draw and under 2.5 goals is available at 11/4. The 1-1 stalemate at 5/1 is also worth having a punt on.
