Blackpool vs Sunderland: Top Free Betting Tips

After securing an away victory, Sunderland will travel to Blackpool for their next EFL Championship fixture on Sunday, 1 January. The Pool has struggled in recent outings and are currently on a lengthy winless streak in the league. Both teams will be eager to pick up a crucial three points in this matchup to kickstart the calendar year on a positive note.

Match Result Prediction: Sunderland to Win

Blackpool are struggling in the Championship, having gone winless in their last eight outings and losing five of them. Sunderland, on the other hand, comes into this game on a winning streak in the league, having secured two consecutive victories. The Black Cats have also been impressive in recent away matches, winning four of their previous five. Additionally, Sunderland has defeated Blackpool in three of their last four visits. Given these factors, it is likely that Sunderland will come away with three points from this matchup.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

The Pool has hit the target only four times in the last five outings but scored only one goal in the previous four hosting duels. Sunderland seems confident in this respect and rattled the net ten times in the last five outings away from home. But the team has allowed only three goals in that duration. Four of the last five H2Hs of these teams have concluded with low-scoring totals. Considering the current forms, we don’t see the teams featuring a high total in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 0-2 to Sunderland

Blackpool has struggled to score at home, failing to find the back of the net in three of their last four attempts. Sunderland, on the other hand, has kept two clean sheets in their previous five away matches. Additionally, the Black Cats have scored at least twice in three of their last five away games, and have hit the target six times in their last two league matches. Given these factors, it is possible that Sunderland may take a 0-2 lead by the end of the match.
