- Blackpool have won five of their last six matches at Bloomfield Road.
- West Brom were beaten in three of their last four games.
- The Baggies have won only one of their last 17 fixtures overall.
Few goals anticipated at Turf Moor
League One outfit Blackpool have been finding form at home just in time for their meeting with West Brom on Saturday, and the Seasiders will hope to make waves against a Baggies team that have looked completely out of sorts of late.
WBA busted coupons everywhere with their incredible 1-1 draw at Liverpool a couple of weeks ago, though Albion’s success at Anfield has been the standalone positive moment of Sam Allardyce’s tenure so far.
West Brom’s draw with the Reds was sandwiched in between harrowing 3-0 and 5-0 home defeats to local rivals Aston Villa and Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, while their 4-0 hammering at the hands of Arsenal in their last outing would have dented their already fragile confidence even further.
Blackpool have won five of their last six matches at Bloomfield Road, and if they can start quickly and aggressively against WBA, then they could find some unexpected cup joy.
With the factors aligned, backing Blackpool in the double chance market this weekend looks an attractive proposition at the prices quoted, while our 1-1 correct score prediction tips the tie to enter extra time.
West Brom have scored exactly once in each of their last three away matches, and a Blackpool team that have averaged 1.5 goals per 90 minutes across their last six home assignments look capable of matching their visitor’s haul.
