Sportingbet Preview: Blackburn

Our official betting partners Sportingbet give us the rundown on some of the markets on offer ahead of tonight’s trip to Blackburn…

Tottenham will welcome a swift return to action as they seek to put Sunday’s result right this evening, but they must face one of the form home teams in Blackburn.

Rovers’ record on their own patch is second only to Manchester United and Spurs themselves over the last six, so pulling off the 6/5 win will be no mean feat for Harry Redknapp’s men. The hosts are priced up at 2/1 for the Ewood Park clash with the draw available at 11/5.

Here’s hoping the goals flow in the right direction tonight – but flow they must if Sportingbet’s Goal Rush promotion is to pay off! Simply back a First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score or Scorecast tip and if there are five or more goals in the game, we’ll give losing punts another chance as a free bet.

You could hedge your bets by tipping some tighter scorelines in the Correct Score market, with 1-0 Tottenham priced 13/2, 2-0 deemed a 9/1 shot and 1-1 offered at 5/1.

It could also be worth a dip into the goalscorers with that insurance offer in mind, with Rafael Van der Vaart 5/1 to notch first, Steven Pienaar 21/5 to get off the mark at any time and Sebastien Bassong to add to his two goals this season paying 12/1.

Add the markets together for a Scorecast bet and you could turn £10 into £410 if Jermain Defoe scores first in a 2-1 win!

Keep an eye on the Sportingbet Spurs Zone for news on who has won that incredible trip to the San Siro. The lucky winner will be jetting off on the club private jet before staying in five-star luxury and taking in the Champions League last 16 first leg, so we hope you’re in the hat!

Even if you don’t win this time, there are plenty of other great prizes on offer in the Get Close section, and you don’t even have to have a Sportingbet account to enter.

Odds correct at time of writing.
