Blackpool - Derby County predictions and free betting tips [03/10/2023]
English football matches are must-watch events, brimming with emotional thrills and unforgettable moments that tantalise the interest even of those who aren't football enthusiasts. On the 30th of September in League One, England's third strengthdivision, at "Bloomfield Road" stadium, "Blackpool" will play against "Derby County". Let's look at the situation of the teams and try to make a decision that could increase our bankroll.
The team has spent the last 2 years in the Championship, but they didn't have much success there and ended up in 24th place last season, dropping back down to League 1. As of now, "Blackpool" is not doing particularly well, holding the 14th position in the leaderboard.
In the 5th round, they suffered a defeat from "Lincoln" with a score of (0:3). After that, they achieved a victory over "Wigan" (2:1). But in their next game, they lost again, this time to "Wycombe" with a score of (0:2). Then the boys won "Reading", routing them with a score of (4:1). Their last match saw them achieving a narrow victory over "Barnsley".
The well-known "Derby County" has been going through a rough patch in recent years. The team encountered serious financial troubles at the start of the 2021/2022 season, leading to a 21-point deduction. Had that not happened, "Derby" would still be contending in the Championship. Last year, "The Rams" performed quite well, but they started to falter in the final games of the season and missed the Championship playoff by 1 point.
In the 5th round of the current season, they won an away game against "Peterborough" with a score of (4:2). Then "Derby" lost to "Bolton" (1:2). After this, the team played a draw against "Portsmouth" (1:1). In the succeeding round, they won an away match against "Carlisle United" with a score of (2:0). Their last match against "Cambridge" ended in another draw (0:0).
The last head-to-head match between "Derby" and "Blackpool" took place on the 8th of August, 2023 in the English League Cup. That encounter ended with an away victory for the "Tangerines" with a score of (2:0).
In the upcoming match, I would identify "Blackpool" as the favourites. The home side's situation appears to be improving, as evidenced by their recent away victory against "Barnsley". Yet, "Derby" is also looking robust, especially in their away matches where they won 3 out of 4. Given that both teams are exhibiting excellent football, I suggest placing a bet on a draw.
