Betting Tip: Both teams to score

Two teams that come into the play-offs in flying form meet at the Kassam on Tuesday. It is two very different approaches and management styles on either side. Neil Critchley has based his Blackpool side on solid defensive foundations, they’ve conceded the fewest goals in the league this season (38). Karl Robinson has seen Oxford score 77 goals this season, only automatically promoted Hull and Peterborough found the net on more occasions.

Of late, Yellows have seen goals galore in their games, each of their last 10 have seen over 2.5 goals and 7 of those 10 have seen over 3.5 goals. They’ll find it tougher than most against Blackpool, but it’s hard to not see this top heavy Oxford side from not scoring, however the threats Blackpool have going forward in Jerry Yates, Ellis Simms and Sully Kaikai should have enough to trouble the hosts.

Both teams to score therefore looks a tempting price at even-money, it’s landed in 5 of the last 6 games at the Kassam, the 1-1 draw looks interesting too at 11/2 if you’re after a bit of a bigger price. Neither side will want this to get away from them.
