Draw odds: 3/1 (4.00) – 25.0%

Burton Albion odds: 21/5 (5.20) – 14.0%

BTTS is currently priced at 7/10 (1.70), giving our second Blackpool vs Burton Albion prediction a 58.82% success chance. Meanwhile, the Brewers are the undeniable underdog in this race, with only a 14.0% win probability at 21/5 (5.20). Logically, this means that Blackpool are the expected winners with a staggering 61.0% win probability. No other team on matchday 1 has such a tremendous shot at the three points.

Blackpool vs Burton Albion Lineups & Team News

Blackpool

The Tangerines’ last match was a 3-0 win over Hibernian. This pre-season friendly showed which face of Blackpool we’ll see this season. Hopefully, coach Critchley’s boys won’t let their guard down versus the Brewers, as our Blackpool vs Burton Albion predictions depend on it. We believe that the home-field advantage at Bloomfield Road will play a crucial part on Saturday, as the Brewers aren’t used to playing away from home.

Predicted lineup – Grimshaw (GK), Lyons, Thorniley, Nelson, Connolly, Fiorini, Patino, Carey, Bowler, Hamilton & Rogers

Burton Albion

The only good thing we can say about the Brewers’ 2022/23 League One campaign is that coach Maamria’s boys managed to pull themselves together in the last two months of the race. Avoiding defeat is hardly an accomplishment to take pride in, but it’s still something that the players can use to build on.

Predicted lineup – MacGillivray (GK), Brayford, Hughes, Moon, Hamer, Powell, Oshilaja, Ashworth, Helm, Carayol & Taylor

Player to Watch: Shayne Lavery

Shayne Lavery, 24, didn’t show the best version of himself during the 2022/23 Championship season. In 27 official games for the Tangerines, he scored twice, assisted on three occasions, saw the yellow card twice, and got sent off with a red once.

Surely, the Northern Irish player would perform way better in League One and will prove our Blackpool vs Burton Albion predictions correct. Shayne is on penalty duty for coach Critchley, so we don’t think he’ll bench him at the start of the season.
