Luton Town vs Blackpool Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

The first leg was a five-goal thriller that Blackpool won 3-2 in front of their own fans. Mark Cullen was the hero for the Tangerines with a first leg hat-trick while the Hatters had a goal each from Danny Potts and Isaac Vassell. Although Luton are favourites to win this leg bookmakers make the Lancashire side favourites to qualify for the final and have them as the market leaders in the race to be promoted to League One.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The match prices look about right in this game so instead, I will recommend a couple of plays in the goalscorer markets. Firstly, Mark Cullen got a hat-trick in the first game to make it five in four yet can still be backed at generous odds in the anytime market. Secondly, look at Luton wing-back James Justin who is given licence to get forward in a 3-5-2 and scored against Accrington recently.
