Burnley and Blackpool square off in EFL Championship action at Turf Moor this Saturday. After slipping down from the Premier League, the Clarets will be looking for an instant return. However, they have failed to win since the opening weekend of the season. This will be a tough assignment against the Tangerines, who have picked up two wins already. Online-betting.me.uk has the best betting odds and predictions.

Burnley Preview – Will the Clarets claim first win in four?

Burnley have started life back in the Championship with one win, two draws and one defeat. Vincent Kompany’s boys kicked off their season in style, picking up a 1-0 victory at Huddersfield Town, but only two points have followed.

Burnley were held to a 1-1 draw by Luton Town in game two before losing to Watford at Vicarage Road. They drew 1-1 at Turf Moor again in their last outing, with Hull City leaving Lancashire with a point.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1117 GMT, Friday 19 August)

Burnley will be hoping to get back to winning ways after collecting just two points from a possible nine. As you would expect, the Lancashire side are the favourites in this one, with the bookies offering 3/5.

Blackpool Preview – Can Pool build on the midweek win?

Blackpool had a fine first season back in the second tier following their EFL League One promotion at the end of the 2020-21 season. Staying up was the priority, and the Seasiders passed that test with flying colours. Can they kick on this year?

Blackpool’s season has begun with two wins and two defeats. Michael Appleton started life back at Bloomfield Road with a hard-fought 1-0 win over Reading. His side then lost 1-0 to both Stoke City and Swansea City. Pool returned to winning ways last time out, as Josh Bowler scored the only goal of the game at Queens Park Rangers.

This will be a stern test for the Tangerines, but Appleton’s troops will be keen to build on the midweek win at Loftus Road. The away victory here is priced at 9/2.


Burnley vs Blackpool Betting Advice

These two clubs have been on very different paths over the last decade or so. The last meeting between Burnley and Blackpool was a Championship affair back in April 2014, which the Clarets won 1-0 at Bloomfield Road. Burnley also won the reverse fixture at Turf Moor, with Danny Ings and Scott Arfield on target in a 2-1 success.


Key Facts – Burnley vs Blackpool Betting Tip

  • Burnley have not won since the opening weekend
  • Blackpool have taken six points from a possible 12
  • These two have not met since the 2013-14 Championship season


Blackpool will no doubt be formidable opponents for Burnley, but Kompany’s men should have enough to get the job done on home turf. The home win and under 2.5 goals is nicely priced at 13/5.

Jay Rodriguez got off the mark last Tuesday, netting the equaliser against Hull. The veteran is available at 9/2 to score anytime in this one.
