Hammers tipped for riches

Have your say

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,
