Latest Odds For Saturday's Game

Only one away team failed to score in the last round of games - and we look set for another action packed weekend in the Sky Bet Championship.

Read on for Sky Bet’s take on Blackpool’s chances this weekend.

Blackpool have started the Championship season in fine fashion, leading the table in the early stages after four wins and draw. Paul Ince’s men consigned Watford to their first loss after a 1-0 victory last time out, with a late goal from Thomas Ince. 

Next up is a trip to newly-promoted Bournemouth, who have had a mixed season so far, having already conceded 12 goals in five games.

There is a case to make Blackpool strong favourites here, having won four of their last five matches. Impressively they’ve had win/win results in their last five wins against promoted teams and they should get chances. Blackpool are available to back outright at 15/8, or an even more attractive 9/2 with a handicap of -1. 

The Seasiders have conceded just two goals all season, so it is entirely realistic to see them keep a clean sheet against Bournemouth, available at 5/2 If you fancy a clean sheet and a Blackpool win the ‘Win to Nil’ market represents great value at 4/1.

Other reasons to bet:

- Blackpool have scored first in their last seven matches 11/10
- Blackpool have had under 2.5 goals in their last four matches 4/5
- Blackpool have been level at half-time in their last four matches 11/10
