​Blackpool vs Exeter: Top free betting tips

Our Blackpool vs Exeter prediction is for an easy and decisive home win. Will the Grecians at least find a way to score a rare away goal?

Blackpool’s great home form, won 7 of their last 8 home matches, is the main reason why the Seasiders remain in the race for promotion. They sit just outside the top 6 right now and remain highly motivated. Exeter on the other hand are only just above the relegation zone and the pressure on them is huge right now. 

​Half with the most goals prediction: Second

Our first Blackpool vs Exeter prediction is that the majority of the goals will be scored in the second half. So far, Exeter have scored 72.2%, or 13 out of 18, of their league goals in the second half. 

Blackpool also score mainly after the interval at home – 66.6% or 20 out of 30 home league goals. 

​​Clean sheet prediction: Blackpool clean sheet

Blackpool conceded just 1 goal in the last 4 home H2Hs. At the same time, Exeter failed to score in 4 of their last 6 away league matches. This is why our second Blackpool vs Exeter prediction backs the Seasiders to keep a clean sheet. 

​​Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Blackpool

With our final Blackpool vs Exeter prediction we back the hosts again. We think Blackpool have a good chance of winning this match 2-0. This was the exact scoreline in 2 of Exeter’s last 5 away defeats. Also, Blackpool scored exactly 2 goals in the last 2 home matches vs Exeter – 2-1 and 2-0 wins.

How far will Exeter’s fans travel to Blackpool?

All Exeter fans who decide to embark on this very long journey up north must be prepared for freezing temperatures. That’s why we advise an extra layer of clothing and lots of enthusiasm as the best way to keep warm while at the stadium will be lots of jumping up and down and loud singing. 

The estimated travel time, without any unforeseen delays, is 5 hours and 11 minutes. The one-way distance that needs to be covered is 283 miles (456km).

​Blackpool vs Exeter: Tickets

There are still plenty of tickets available on sale for this match. The ticket booths will be open on Saturday too and tickets can be purchased right up until kick-off time. 

The home fans will have to pay from £22.00 for a ticket to £40.00 if they want a VIP box, or a hospitality package that includes hot drinks at halftime and a warm meal before the game. Maybe, not such a bad idea to consider if the temperatures will be freezing on Saturday. 

Exeter have been allocated 600 away tickets, all priced at £25.00 for adults. All away fans will be located in the East Stand and tickets can be purchased even from Blackpool, directly from the white booth located next to the away turnstiles.
