Leeds United travel to Blackpool for their second Championship fixture this week on the back of an impressive 1-0 win against Wolves on Saturday. Blackpool also got off to a winning start, beating Millwall 2-0 away from home.
Blackpool are the 6/5 favourites to win this one with Paddy Power, the draw is a 12/5 shot and Leeds are 23/10 with Youwin.
Blackpool will look to home advantage in search of victory in this one, their impressive 2-0 win at Millwall on Saturday brings them into this one in high spirits and they finished last season with three home wins (all to nil) before losing to West Ham on the last day of the season. Thomas Ince scored both goals at Millwall and he is 8/1 to score first with Bet365 on Tuesday.
Leeds got off to a flying start at Elland Road on Saturday, beating relegated Wolves by a goal to nil and it was Luciano Becchio who got the vital goal in the first half, if you fancy him to score again he is 7/1 to score first or 2/1 to score anytime with Bet365.
Leeds finished last season with two defeats and a draw on the road and won only two of their last eight games. This away form will need to improve dramatically if they are to push for promotion and it this game against Blackpool is set to be a real stiff test. From a neutral point of view the value is probably to back a Blackpool win but the loyal Leeds fans could profit from looking at the anytime goalscorer market. Ross McCormack is a 15/8 chance to score in the 90 minutes and he could prove a sensible option, as would Becchio at 2/1.
A correct score bet on a Leeds win would provide you with some big odds, 2-1 to Leeds is 14/1 with 188bet and 1-0 is 11/1. The loyal fans may well fancy a small punt on one of these options.
