Blackpool vs Exeter City Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Blackpool ended the season in seventh place and qualified for the final by seeing off Luton 6-5 on aggregate in two cracking legs. Exeter booked their place in the play-offs by finishing fifth and in their semi-final they defeated Carlisle 6-5 on aggregate. These two sides met twice in the regular season with Blackpool winning one and the other ending all-square. The first game was way back in August and that was won 2-0 by the Lancashire side thanks to a goal from Kyle Vassell and a Troy Brown own-goal. The second meeting came in February and that ended 2-2 with Ollie Watkins and Reuben Reid netting for the Grecians and Colin Daniel and Brad Potts for Pool.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Bookmakers Exeter marginal favourites for the game for their end of season form and the fact they finished above Blackpool. This was just by one point though and the Tangerines also played well to end the season. The Lancashire side can point to the fact they took four points from Exeter in the regular season but that win came in August when the Grecians were a much different side to now. All the signs point to a difficult game to predict and as such I would recommend sticking with the side markets. These two teams have a ton of goals in them as shown by recent games so it might be worth a small play on a goals market. Try a little interest on YES both teams to score in the first-half and YES both teams to score second-half. This would have paid in three of the four halves of the Blackpool semi-final and the same amount for Exeter.
