Blackpool and Swansea City clash at Bloomfield Road in the EFL Championship on Saturday. The Tangerines have kept their slim play-off hopes alive with back-to-back wins over Reading and Stoke City. Can the hosts beat the Swans, who were hammered at home by Fulham in midweek? Neil Critchley’s boys are the slight favourites with the bookies? Take a look at the latest betting odds and predictions.

Blackpool Preview – Can the Tangerines make it three in a row?

Blackpool have had a fine first season back in the second tier. Neil Critchley’s side booked their place in the 2021-22 Championship via the EFL League One play-off route. Staying up was the main aim before a ball was kicked, but Pool still have eyes on a top-six finish this term.

After no wins in four, Blackpool got back to winning ways in their last home fixture, coming from behind to thump Reading 4-1 at Bloomfield Road. The Seasiders followed that up with a 1-0 win at Stoke City, with the in-form Josh Bowler netting the winner late on at the bet365 Stadium.

Our betting prediction:
Blackpool to win & both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1057 GMT, Friday 11 March)

Blackpool are in 14th spot right now but are only nine points away from sixth. Reaching the play-offs is unlikely, but Critchley’s boys will not give up until it is mathematically impossible.

Swansea City Preview – Will the Swans bounce back from heavy defeat?

Russell Martin has had a difficult first season at Swansea City. After 34 games played, last term’s Championship play-off runners-up have won 12, drawn eight and lost 14. They are in 16th position right now with 44 points to their name.

Swansea are in patchy form, winning four and losing five of their past nine in the Championship. After impressive back-to-back wins over West Bromwich Albion and Coventry City, the Swans were beaten 5-1 at home by leaders Fulham last time out.

Swansea were superb in their last away match, picking up a deserved 2-0 win over West Brom at The Hawthorns. That ended a run of six without victory on the road (four losses, two draws). Can the Welsh side follow it up with three points on their travels at the weekend?


Blackpool vs Swansea City Betting Advice

The first meeting between the clubs for 11 years ended in a 1-1 draw back in November. Joel Piroe gave Swansea a first-half lead, but Keshi Anderson rescued a point late on.

You have to go back to March 2010 for the last game between the pair at Bloomfield Road – Pool ran out emphatic winners that day, with Brett Ormerod netting a brace in a 5-1 win. Blackpool went on to gain promotion to the Premier League, beating Swansea’s rivals Cardiff City in the 2010 Championship play-off final.


Key Facts – Blackpool vs Swansea City Betting Tip

  • Blackpool have won their last two
  • The last meeting between the duo in Blackpool ended 5-1 to the hosts
  • The Swans have not beaten Pool since 2005


After two excellent wins, Blackpool will be well up for this one. Swansea will still be licking their wounds after Tuesday’s humbling defeat to Fulham, and we fancy the home victory here. The hosts are available at 7/5.

23-year-old Josh Bowler is in red-hot form for Blackpool, scoring six in his last eight Championship games. Bowler is priced at 4/1 to notch anytime on Saturday.
