Competition: League One
Market: Over 1.5 goals
Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport
Desperate to extend on their charge for safety on Tuesday night, Rochdale will welcome Blackpool to an empty Crown Oil Arena in midweek.
Starting with the hosts, while Rochdale might have opened April tipped as the leading contender in the relegation race, Brian Barry-Murphy’s men have certainly breathed new life into their charge. Managing to build off of what was that crucial six-point showdown against fellow scrappers Swindon last week, The Dale put in another impressive display on home soil over the weekend. Eventually picking up a deserved 3-1 romp against Accrington Stanley at The Crown Oil Arena, Rochdale have collected back-to-back League One victories for the first time since the end of October. Knowing that another win in midweek could move them just a single point adrift of breaking out of the bottom-four, Murphy’s side have also caught the eye with their recent displays on home soil. Including a 3-3 draw against Peterborough last month, Tuesday’s hosts are unbeaten in their last four straight home fixtures.
As for the visitors, managing to make an eye-catching return to winning ways over the weekend, Blackpool have continued to impress many across League One this season. Sat in pole position to secure themselves a play-off spot this season, The Oranges shocked some as they claimed a victory against Sunderland on Saturday. Maybe with their sights still set on making a late charge for the automatic positions, Neil Critchley’s side are enjoying a 16-match unbeaten run that stems all the way back to February 6th. Smelling what could be another chance on their travels in midweek, Blackpool should be boosted by their continued success away from Bloomfield Road. Including victories away at the likes of Portsmouth, Charlton and Oxford United, Tuesday’s guests have collected 16 points from just their last six League One away fixtures.
Bet: Over 1.5 goals at Rochdale vs Blackpool 4/11 in Tuesday’s League One matchup @ 888sport
