Blackpool vs. Millwall Betting Tips: Back Bradshaw to score and be carded at Bloomfield Road
Blackpool take on Millwall in the Championship on Friday evening live on Sky Sports. We’ve provided you with our two best bets for the game including a 31/1 longshot.
It’s a case of do or die for Blackpool on Friday with the Seasiders three points from safety and just two games remaining of the season. Stephen Dobbie’s side kept their hopes of survival alive with a 1-0 away win at Birmingham last week and have now taken six points from a possible nine under their caretaker manager.
Millwall are winless in their last two and after occupying the play-off spots for a large proportion of the campaign, they dropped down into seventh last week. A defeat to Wigan who sit bottom of the table was the last thing Gary Rowett needed, but with matches against Blackpool and out of form Blackburn on the last day, there is still plenty of reason to believe that The Lions can make their way back into the play-off zone.
Blackpool vs Millwall Tips
The first selection we want to highlight from Bloomfield Road is for under 2.5 goals to be goals to be scored in the match. This is widely available at several betting sites including both BoyleSports and bet365.
In all three games since Stephen Dobbie took over in the Blackpool dugout they have featured under 2.5 goals, and if they are to have any chance of survival, they will need to keep it tight against Millwall. Blackpool have kept clean sheets in two of their last three and face a Millwall side that has not scored more than two goals in a match in their last 13 outings.
Millwall have been one of the best teams to side with this season in The Championship when it comes to low scoring affairs. In total, 64% of Millwall’s matches have seen Under 2.5 goals land this season and in more recent weeks it has copped in six of their last seven!
We’ve also had a little bit of loose change on Tom Bradhsaw to score and be carded in the match. No player has notched more goals for Gary Rowett’s side this season than Bradshaw who has 15 to his name.
The striker has also picked up four yellow cards, with this bet for him to score and be carded landing twice already this campaign. At north of 30/1 we think this looks a little too big a price in a game that could have a massive impact at both ends of the table.
