Ian Holloway’s Tangerines have given every game a real go in their debut Premiership season and this match has all the makings of a goal feast.
Paddy Power offer 11/4 that the game yields more than 4.5 goals so let’s have a crack at that and hope both sides play to type.
The Blackpool v Spurs game is a warm up for the main event which sees Man Utd travel to Chelsea in the 4 o’clock kick-off on Sky.
Both sides have had their wobbles this year and a draw would suit both. But perhaps more value can be found in backing Wayne Rooney to score at any time.
Rooney showed glimpses of his real form against Arsenal last week and will be chomping at the bit to score after sailing his late penalty over the bar.
He is just the kind of striker to trouble the Chelsea central defence and the 2/1 from Paddy Power about Rooney to score at any time in the 90 minutes looks a decent bet.
With Christmas just around the corner it might also be worth a little dabble in the White Christmas market.
I’m no Michael Fish, but it’s bloody cold at the moment and set to get even more Arctic next week.
SkyBet offers 5/4 that London will see snow On Christmas Day – and just one flake has to fall on the Met Centre roof for us to collect.
Perhaps the Government should lump on as well. That way we might even have a big enough budget to clear the stuff and keep our roads open.
