Our resident betting expert is backing Sam Allardyce’s side to beat Blackpool in an exciting clash, tipping the Hammers to win by at least two goals against the Tangerines.
Vaz Te has been a revelation for West Ham since moving from Barnsley in the January transfer window. The 25-year-old has scored 11 goals in 17 appearances for the Hammers, including his strike against Cardiff City just over a week ago. So, The Tipster’s opening bet for this edition is for Vaz Te to score at any time at Wembley at 11/8.
Allardyce’s side have beaten Blackpool at both Upton Park and Bloomfield Road this season – scoring four goals on each occasion. In fact, West Ham are unbeaten in their last four games against the Tangerines. Therefore, the London outfit look to be good value at 19/20.
The Hammers beat Blackpool 4-0 at home this season and were equally impressive in their 4-1 win at Bloomfield Road. Allardyce’s side were 5-0 aggregate winners against Cardiff in the play-off sem-final – and The Tipster is backing West Ham to win by at least two goals on Saturday at 12/5.
This fixture has traditionally produced plenty of goals, and even in recent times, three of the last four meetings between Blackpool and West Ham have finished with over 2.5 goals. There have been at least three goals in the Hammers’ last four fixtures, and three of Blackpool’s last four games. So over 2.5 goals in the play-off final at Wembley is a value bet at 4/5.
West Ham were the Championship’s second highest goal scorers this season with 81 goals – only promoted Southampton scored more. Allardyce’s side scored three goals or more in 10 games this season – and in successive matches against Cardiff. So The Tipster’s audacious long shot for this edition is for West Ham to score over 2.5 goals at 3/1.
