Betting options for the FA Cup tie

The romance of the FA Cup is usually typified by a giant killing, but with Blackpool and Bolton evenly matched, great odds can get had for tomorrow’s clash.

The Seasiders are without a win in seven, whilst Bolton have won just two in that period and sit six places below Pool in The Championship table.

Last season Fulham knocked Blackpool out of the FA Cup via at replay at the third round stage. Bolton did make it to the fourth round, where they were beaten by Everton.

Pool can be backed at 12/5 to reach that stage this year.

Bolton are at 11/10, whilst a draw is at 12/5.

At 8/1 Blackpool can be backed for a narrow 1-0 victory.

Ricardo Fuller returned to the side on Wednesday and is at 6/1 to score first at The Reebok Stadium.

Bolton’s danger comes from Jermaine Beckford, who is at 9/2 to break the deadlock, and Andre Moritz, who is at 13/2.
