Blackpool to avoid defeat
Preston North End have no wins in their last three games, with a draw and two losses; they've managed just one win in their last seven games, with three draws and three losses. On the other hand, Blackpool have been relatively better than Preston recently; they lost just one of their last five games, with three wins and a draw. It's also worth mentioning that Blackpool won the reverse fixture of this clash, and they lost just once in their last five meetings with Preston. With this in mind, we're making the prediction that Blackpool will not lose this match.
Banking on a lack of goals
We've mentioned that Preston have struggled to win games recently; we would also like to point out that they have also found it difficult to score goals. Ryan Lowe's men did not score a single goal in their last three games. As a result of their lack of goals, Preston's games tend to be on the low-scoring side; four of their last six games went below the 2.5 goal line, with three of those games going under 1.5. Moreover, we would like to mention that Blackpool kept three clean sheets in their last four games; three of their last four games saw less than two goals scored. Additionally, clashes between these sides have not produced a lot of goals; all of their last five meetings went under 2.5. On that note, we shouldn't expect a lot of goals here.
