Championship stats and best bets – Saturday 5th February

Although the best bets in this write up are backed up by statistics they are not certainties and still could lose. I will use the statistics to point out likely events in these games, and the best bets are the types of bets that I believe stand a good chance of coming in. The best bets will vary in price as this is a case of taking what the stats give us, rather than trying to force bets for the sake of it. I will be as transparent as possible in each write up about why I feel each bet is best bet material. All bets are rated on a 1-3 points system of how strong we believe the chance of it happening is, with 3 being the strongest. This is just an indication of my confidence and should not be taken as advice on what amount to place on a bet, you should only bet what you can afford to lose.


Blackpool vs Bristol City 

Blackpool have played 28 league games this season, scoring 29 and conceding 33 with 14 games having both sides score and 11 over 2.5 goals. Bristol City have played 29 league games this season scoring 38 and conceding 51 with 20 games having both teams score and 18 over 2.5 goals. Blackpool’s stats are not massively impressive, but Bristol City games have been seeing a lot  of goals this season, particularly their 14 away games which have seen 10 end with both teams scoring and 12 end over 2.5 goals, so I am hopeful of goals here.

Both teams to score – 5/6 bet365 (3 points)

Over 2.5 goals – 6/5 Skybet (3 points)

A goal in each half – 5/6 Skybet (3 points)
