Blackpool vs Burnley prediction and top betting tips

It is completely plausible that these two teams are an entire league apart next season with Burnley looking destined to win promotion to the Premier League and Blackpool staring relegation to League One in the face. Will this game play out according to the league table or does Mick McCarthy have a magic trick up his sleeve? Find out with our Blackpool vs Burnley match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Blackpool vs Burnley Prediction 1: Burnley to win

When Mick McCarthy was named Blackpool boss he would have looked through the fixture list and plotted where his side could get the points they need to stay up; this game would not have been one of those games. That doesn't mean Blackpool will roll over for their visitors but we are still predicting that Burnley run out winners. Blackpool have won just one of their last nine games with six of those other eight games ending in defeat. Contrast that with Burnley who are unbeaten across their last 14 games since losing to Man United in the League Cup in December and the challenge at hand for the Seasiders is clear. We just can't see anything but an away win.

Blackpool vs Burnley Prediction 2: Both teams will not score

The second of our football betting tips for this game comes from the both teams to score market and we come down in the ‘no' camp. Blackpool, who are likely to set up with the intention of frustrating Burnley, have seen three of their last five games end with a ‘nil' in the final scoreline and are also in the midst of a striker crisis. Burnley meanwhile have also seen three of their last five games end with at least one side failing to score. On top of that, just one of the last four head to head games have seen both teams bag goals.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the Blackpool vs Burnley odds translate into probability ahead of this game? Let's find out.

Blackpool odds: 9/2 (5.50) – 18%

Draw odds: 14/5 (3.80) – 26%

Burnley odds: 5/8 (1.63) – 62%

The 62% probability the bookies have afforded to Burnley is low in our minds when considered the trajectory these two teams are on, which means backing Burnley to win – as we have done above – gives us great betting value. By contrast, Blackpool and the draw are probably not long enough odds to entice many bettors to take a punt. The over and under goals market is another intriguing one; the bookies have under 2.5 goals as the most likely outcome here.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Blackpool vs Burnley

Blackpool

Blackpool have failed to follow up on a solid victory over Stoke a few games back and are now four points from safety with time running out. More notably though is perhaps the hamstring injury suffered by Jerry Yates; he's now expected to be out for the entirety of March along with fellow attackers Gary Madine and Shayne Lavery. The latter duo both came off during Blackpool's last match leaving them very light up front!

Predicted lineup – Maxwell, Husband, Thorniley, Nelson, Lyons, Garbutt, Carey, Connolly, Bowler, Poveda,Rogers

Burnley

Burnley rested and rotated their squad a bit in the week as they faced Fleetwood in the FA Cup but we won't be seeing that “weakened” lineup in this game. Expect Vincent Kompany to name a side that is more in keeping with Burnley's previous league game. In fact, after a 4-0 rout a fully unchanged XI is surely pretty likely; the exception to that being Ian Maatsen who came off injured in that game.

Predicted lineup – Muric, Roberts, Ekdal, Beyer, Taylor, Cullen, Brownhill, Tella, Zaroury, Gudmundsson, Barnes

Player to watch

Blackpool are likely to operate a deep defensive line in this game, which will make it tough for Burnley to get in behind them. With that in mind, we see veteran forward Ashley Barnes being a key man in this game. His ability to play the more traditional front man role could be crucial for the Clarets in this clash.
