Blackpool vs Huddersfield: Our top betting predictions

We cannot stress what a big game this is at the foot of the Championship table with Blackpool 23rd on 26 points and Huddersfield just one place and one point better off. It really could be that the winner of this game stays up as a result of the three points. So, who wins? Find out with our Blackpool vs Huddersfield match preview with free tips, predictions and odds mentioned along the way.

Blackpool to win

With both sides woefully out of form across practically across the entire season it's hard to justify backing either of them to win. We have, however, looked at all aspects and decided that someone will take all three points here; we're predicting Blackpool to win. Both sides are in poor runs of form but the Seasiders are edging things having won one and drawn one of their last five games. Huddersfield have lost three and drawn two of their games across the same period of time. On top of that, Blackpool have home advantage on their side and also know they have the beating of this Terriers squad having taken three points off them at the John Smith's stadium in the reverse fixture.

Both teams to score

Neither side are in good form but that doesn't mean they're not scoring goals – they are. Blackpool have seen both teams score in three of their last five games as they've netted a combined six goals whilst shipping nine. Huddersfield meanwhile have seen four of their last five games end with goals at both ends. They've scored a total of four goals in that time – one in each of the four matches we mention – and have shipped nine. With both sides knowing that a win is needed, that should also add to the openness of this match.

So, that gives you some insight to how the different bookmakers see the action unfolding. How though do the bookies odds translate into probabilities ahead of this game and how might that impact your view of our predictions? Let's find out.

Blackpool odds: 4/3 (2.33) – 43%

Draw odds: 15/7 (3.14) – 32%

Huddersfield odds: 15/7 (3.14) – 32%

Blackpool come into this game as favourites in the eyes of the bookmakers but, as you can see from the above, it is far from nailed on that they win this game with the draw and Huddersfield win betting options not far behind the home win in respect of probability. Another betting market of interest is the total goals market. Here the 2.5 cut off is the most commonly used by punters and the bookies have ‘under' priced significantly odds on. That means they are expecting a tight game.

Check out the predicted lineups ahead of Blackpool vs Huddersfield

Blackpool

Blackpool lost last time out but Mick McCarthy hasn't long been in the door. He's someone that will believe in continuity and, despite their heavy loss last time out, we can see him sticking with the same lineup here in what is a very different match from that Middlesbrough game.

Predicted lineup – Maxwell, Hamilton, Nelson, Goode, Connolly, Lyons, Patino, Trybull, Bowler, Yates, Lavery

Huddersfield

Huddersfield earned a point last time out against QPR and they'll hope to build on that here against a relegation rival. Expect an unchanged lineup as the Terriers look to build some much needed momentum.

Predicted lineup -Vaclik, Turton, Lees, Helik, Lowton, High, Hogg, Kasumu, Hungbo, Waghorn, Rudoni

Player to watch

Martyn Waghorn is a man that Mick McCarthy will know well having signed the forward previously in his career. Now though, Waghorn lines up against his former boss and has the ability to win this game for Huddersfield. The Seasiders will need to keep a close eye on him because he's already bagged for the Terriers despite only making two appearances for them!
