Tip Reasoning

It’s been a near certainty this season that matches involving Carlisle have finished with both teams scoring, so with odds still as high as 4/6 with bet365, for this to happen this weekend it’s an easy pick for our tip. For our correct score tip we think Carlisle will have enough to claim all three points and we are backing a 2-1 home win at 8/1 with the same site.

Only six of Carlisle’s 29 games this season has finished with one of the sides involved keeping a clean sheet, which is a frankly ridiculous, 79% of all their matches in the league so far. It’s also now 13 games in a row where both teams have scored and the Cumbrians are yet to fail to score at home this season. The loss of striker Charlie Wyke to Bradford in the last stages of the transfer window leaves a big hole to fill but it is yet to show on the pitch as they have continued to find the back of the net.

Blackpool have drawn each of their last four in the league and despite having hopes of bouncing straight back into League One at the start of the campaign, it looks as though they are going to have to settle for a season of consolidation. Although nowhere near as impressive as the Carlisle stat, half of Blackpool’s games have also finished with both teams scoring.

It is also something that has been common when these sides have met in the past as eight of the last ten meetings have finished with both teams finding the back of the net, which includes the 2-2 draw when the sides last met earlier this season.
