Despite the riches on offer in the Champions League, there’s another match this weekend that, financially at least, is worth more.
Blackpool and West Ham play in the Championship play-off final, competing for a return to the Premiership and the cash windfall that involves. Having finished third in the regular season, it’s Sam Allardyce’s men that are odds-on at 8/13 via Stan James to gain promotion.
Paddy Power make Ian Holloway’s charges their 11/8 underdogs to go up while the Londoners are also favoured in the match betting at 21/20 courtesy of William Hill and in what should be a close affair. Skybet post 11/4 against it finishing all square after 90 minutes at Wembley, where BetVictor quote both teams at 11/1 to prevail on penalties.
The Seasiders are perhaps overpriced at 11/4 (Boylesports) to nick it in normal time and in a fixture that looks good value at 10/11 courtesy of Coral to produce three or more goals Betfred’s 11/1 chalked against a 2-1 Blackpool success isn’t without appeal.
Ladbrokes have Holloway’s troops at 11/2 to emerge victorious by a one-goal margin,
