Barrow vs Blackpool Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Barrow vs Blackpool will be a curious game between teams from different leagues. Here are our predictions.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

We have two different teams but they both share one similarity – they do not score a lot of goals and they typically do not concede too many. Barrow have done well in League Two this season but the team has scored more than one goal in just two games to date. They play quite well defensively, so we do not expect Blackpool to have extreme success here. Their form seems to be bad right now and they scored in one of their last six games in all tournaments.

Match Result Prediction: Draw

The teams met in the EFL Cup last season and the game ended in a 0-0 draw at full time. We expect something similar in this match. The teams may be from different levels of English football but the stronger side is the away team here and this makes it fairly equal. We do not expect much from Barrow here and it will be a surprise if they even score a goal. Blackpool, in turn, have had a bunch of 0-0 games this season already.

Correct Score Prediction: 0-0 Draw

As mentioned above, we believe that the 0-0 draw is quite possible between these teams once again. Yes, the teams met in a friendly match two months ago and Blackpool won a massive win but we do not think that it will happen again based on the recent performances. The 1-1 option is also good but since Blackpool had a series of 0-0 results in a row, it is riskier. When we compare the Barrow vs Blackpool line ups, the visitors should have a slight advantage on paper.

Barrow vs Blackpool Team Previews

Barrow Preview

Barrow have started the new season in an impressive way and sit near the top of the table in League Two. The team, however, has a lot of problems and their results are more surprising than deserved. Their attack is not really strong, so when they win, they win with small results. Their defense is not bad at all but it will not be enough for long unless they start scoring more.

Blackpool Preview

Blackpool's new campaign has been nothing but problems to date. The team was supposed to be one of the best in the league but their performances have not been good. Their attack is one of the weakest in the entire league right now. They only not lose because of their defense. They had 3 consecutive 0-0 draws in League One. They have to start scoring goals or they will not achieve anything this year.
