Blackpool vs Coventry: Top Free Betting Tips

After thrashing Queens  Park Rangers at home, Blackpool hosts Coventry City in the upcoming Championship fixture on Saturday, 18 March. The Sky Blues are getting desperate for three points as they ended the recent successive games in draws.

Match Result Prediction: Draw

Coventry City has avoided defeat in the latest league outings but the team has won only two of the last five duels. On the other hand, Blackpool has lost three of the recent five league games, together with one victory and a draw. Nevertheless, the Seasiders have also followed an unbeaten streak at home but ended four of the previous six league games in draws. Both teams have also won twice in the last five outings. Given the present statistics, we expect an exciting duel in this game and predict the teams to share the points.

Total Goals Prediction: Under 2.5 Goals

Blackpool scored six goals in the last duel at home but the team still has a total of only nine goals in the previous five hosting attempts. On the other hand, Coventry City have rattled the net seven times in the last six away duels. The defence of both sides has also been at its best as Blackpool and the Sky Blues have claimed three clean sheets in the last four home and away outings respectively. The last three H2Hs of these teams at the Seasiders’ home have ended with low-scoring patterns and we expect the same in this game.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

Blackpool have hit the target more than once in only one of the last six league attempts while allowing only seven in that duration, keeping two clean sheets. On the contrary, Coventry City have not conceded more than one goal in any attempt since the start of February. The Sky Blues have also scored once in each of the previous two attempts. So following the teams’ scoring flow, we predict the scoreline of 1-1 at the end of this game.

However, Blackpool has a total of only eight wins and 11 draws in 37 attempts which placed them in the twenty-second position on the table. Left-winger Keshi Anderson won’t feature in this game due to a medial collateral ligament injury.
