Things Looking Up For 10/3 Blackpool

league-2It hasn’t been a happy few years for Blackpool, who have suffered three relegations since their brief stint in the Premier League (2010/11), but their recent results have made the bookmakers take notice and their League Two promotion odds have been slashed from 8/1 at the end of September to a best price of 10/3 with BetVictorSky Bet and Ladbrokes following their 4-1 victory over Newport.

Last Saturday’s win was the third successive home game in which Gary Bowyer’s side have scored 4 goals, a run which includes a 4-0 thrashing of Notts County and a 4-2 win over strongly fancied Doncaster (5/2 favourites to win League 2).

Add in a 2-1 win at Leyton Orient and the Tangerines have won four of their last six league games to climb from 17th place up into the play-off places. Shots data shows that only Luton and Portsmouth have had more shots on target than Blackpool this season, while only 3 teams have allowed their opponents fewer shots on their goal.
