Derby County Preview – Can the Rams pick up a precious three points?

Derby County are having their issues off the field, but Wayne Rooney’s men have remained competitive on the pitch. In recent weeks, the Rams have beaten Bournemouth and drawn at Fulham.

However, County head into this one having just suffered back-to-back defeats. They lost 2-1 to Queens Park Rangers in their last home match before falling to a 1-0 defeat away at Bristol City. The victory over the Cherries last month remains their only three points since September.

Our betting prediction:
Under 1.5 goals

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1259 GMT, Friday 10 December)

Relegation is looking more and more likely for the East Midlands club, but Rooney and his men will continue to fight on the field. Can County avoid a third straight Championship defeat at the weekend? The home win is priced at 13/10 and the draw is available at 11/5.

Blackpool Preview – Can the Seasiders get back on track with three points?

Blackpool have had a mixed bag of results on their Championship return. Last season’s EFL League One play-off winners have picked up seven wins, suffered eight defeats and drawn six of their 21 league matches.

Blackpool bulldozed their way into the play-off slots after recording seven wins from ten Championship games. However, they have been in poor form over the past month or so, failing to win in six. Pool have lost three and drawn three since a 1-0 win at Bramall Lane on 3rd November.

Derby County vs Blackpool Betting Advice

This will be the first meeting between the duo since they locked horns in the 2014-15 Championship season. Blackpool were relegated at the end of the campaign, and the Rams did the double over the Seasiders.

A Chris Martin penalty was enough to give County a 1-0 victory at Bloomfield Road in October 2014. Several months later, goals from Darren Bent (2), Craig Bryson and Tom Ince gave Derby a 4-0 win at Pride Park.


Key Facts – Derby County vs Blackpool Betting Tip

  • Derby have won the last four meetings, scoring 13 goals to boot
  • The Rams have suffered just seven league losses this term
  • Blackpool are without a win in six (three draws, three defeats)


Derby are the draw specialists in this season’s Championship, with ten of their 21 fixtures ending all square. Rooney’s men need wins, but after two defeats on the spin, a point would be a decent outcome from this one. The draw is priced at 11/5.

Derby skipper Tom Lawrence has been in good goalscoring form of late, netting three goals in his last four outings. We fancy the Welshman to get his name on the scoresheet in this one, and you can get 11/4 for Lawrence to score anytime.
