Goalscoring tips #1 – Hull City v Blackpool

5 Aug

Main Bet: Fryatt (Hull) – first goalscorer @ 11/2 [VCBet, SkyBet]

Decent shout: Brady (Hull) – e/w first goalscorer @ 12/1 [Bet365]

Watch in-play : Sutherland (Blackpool)
Sky start our football season viewing with a colorful affair at the KC stadium in the battle of oranges of Hull and Blackpool.

The former Premiership underdogs find themselves back in the Championship looking to get back into the big time.

Blackpool’s task looks harder at the minute with the loss of most of their firepower last season including Charlie Adams and DJ Campbell.
Hull consolidated under a new manager last term and hope to kick on this.

Let’s take a look at the goalscoring options available to both teams.

With McLean and Simpson doubt’s for this game the striker roles are limited to Fryatt and new signing Adebola.
Never seen Adebola as a main source of goals, so proven scorer Fryatt looks the obvious choice here with Hull the favourites to win.
Captain Koren can weigh in with goals but Man U loanee Robbie Brady looks a good price @ 12/1 to net first and show his Premiership potential with 4/1 if he nets any other time.


As already mentioned, Blackpool have lost some firepower and replaced them with Super Kevin Phillips and Barry Ferguson among others.
Phillips should still do the biz at this level but is getting on a bit, as is Ormenrod. The likes of Billy Clarke and Taylor-Fletcher will look to star at this level again but it’s youngster Craig Sutherland who’s caught my eye.
Had a good pre-season after coming over from America, the young scot may not start but if he comes on, maybe worth keeping an eye on his price in-play for the next goal.
He’s first goalscorer price has already shrunk this week.

A few have predicted this to be a low scoring contest which makes the 10/1 no goalscorer quite interesting.
However, I can’t see Ollie abandoning his attacking tactics and with the same leaky defense, Hull should take advantage.
Fryatt for me today with a little interest on the new boys in the teams.
