​Burton Albion vs Blackpool: Top free betting tips

Can Burton end their winless run on Boxing Day? Our Burton Albion vs Blackpool prediction is for yet another defeat for the Brewers. 

Burton are in serious trouble after going on an awful 8-game winless run (D2 L6) in the league. The Brewers are under serious pressure right now and they badly need a win. Blackpool on the other hand are on a run of 7 wins in their last 9 matches and they remain just outside the play-off positions. 

Goalscorer prediction: Rodhes to score anytime

Blackpool’s star striker Jordan Rodhes has been in sensational form since joining the Seasiders in the summer. Rodhes has 15 league goals in 20 appearances for Blackpool. He scored 7 goals in just the last 7 rounds. This is why with our first Burton Albion vs Blackpool prediction we back Rodhes to find the back of the net at some stage. 

​​​Correct outcome prediction: Blackpool to win

With our next Burton Albion vs Blackpool prediction we back the visitors to claim all the points. Burton lost 3 of their last 4 home games. At the same time, Blackpool won 4 of their last 5 matches. Also, the Seasiders won 2 of the last 3 H2Hs 

​​​Correct score prediction: 2-0 to Blackpool

Our final Burton Albion vs Blackpool prediction is as usual the correct score. We think Blackpool will win this match with a 2-0 result. This was the exact scoreline between the teams when they met in August, Blackpool won 2-0 at home. Also, 2 of Burton’s last 4 home matches were 0-2 defeats.

How far will Blackpool’s fans travel to Burton?

For this game, Blackpool’s fans will have to leave the comfort of the coast and head towards the ‘deepest, darkest’ inland of the country. The journey itself is not the most exciting but at least the road network between the cities is good so it should be a straightforward trip. 

The driving distance between Blackpool and Burton-upon-Trent is only 115 miles (185km) and normally it would take around 2 hours and 14 minutes to cover it. Because the roads are expected to be pretty quiet on Boxing Day the journey time could be even less.
