Coventry City and Blackpool clash at the Coventry Building Society Arena in the EFL Championship this Tuesday night. Both clubs were tipped to be in a relegation scrap before a ball was kicked this term, but the Sky Blues are 12th, while Pool are level on points in 13th. The pair look hard to split on paper and this one could go either way in the Midlands. We track down the latest odds and give you our top tips.

Coventry City Preview – Can the Sky Blues get back on track?

Mark Robins’ Coventry City took many people by surprise by their superb start, with the Sky Blues spending the early weeks of the season in the top six of the Championship. However, they have slipped into mid-table after a poor run of results of late.

Coventry have picked up just two wins from their past ten league fixtures, suffering four defeats along the way. Last time out in the Championship, Robins’ troops lost 1-0 to Middlesbrough at the Riverside Stadium. They then lost 2-1 to Southampton in the FA Cup last Saturday.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1331 GMT, Monday 7 February)

Coventry have slipped five points away from sixth spot, but things are very tight in the hunt for a play-off place right now. Three points this Tuesday will put the Sky Blues well and truly back on track.

Blackpool Preview – In-form Tangerines to leave Coventry with maximum points?

Blackpool were promoted from EFL League One via the play-off route last term, so staying in the Championship is their main priority. However, after taking 40 points from 29 games, the Tangerines could be a dark horse in the race for the play-offs.

Blackpool have been in fine form lately, picking up three wins and draw from their last four Championship affairs. That was just what the doctor ordered after five defeats in six. Last weekend, Neil Critchley’s boys beat Bristol City 3-1 at home.

Coventry City vs Blackpool Betting Advice

In the reverse game at Bloomfield Road back in August, a Viktor Gyokeres goal was enough to give the Midlands club a 1-0 away win. The previous meeting was a League One affair in September 2019, which Coventry won 3-2. Pool’s last victory in this fixture was a 2-0 away success back in January 2019.


Key Facts – Coventry City vs Blackpool Betting Tip

  • Coventry have won the last two meetings
  • Blackpool have taken ten points from the last 12 on offer
  • The Sky Blues have won only two of their past ten in the league


Coventry’s impressive start has been undone somewhat after a run of just two wins from ten in the league. In contrast, Blackpool are heading in the right direction again, recovering after a slump in form.

The pair are on 40 points, but Blackpool are the team in form. We fancy the Seasiders to leave the Coventry Building Society Arena with all three points on Tuesday. The away victory is priced at 16/5.

We are also backing Coventry to get on the scoresheet on their own patch, so check out the tempting odds of 8/1 for the away victory and both teams to score.
