Our betting partners Sportingbet give us the lowdown on the markets available ahead of Sunday's fixture at Blackpool.

Fresh from their clash with the Premier League champions, Tottenham head north to face surprise package Blackpool on Sunday priced 3/5 for victory with Sportingbet.

Didier Drogba’s missed penalty gave it the feel of a point earned at White Hart Lane last week, and punters backing the 11/5 draw would have been doubly grateful for the Ivorian’s lacklustre spot kick.

This week’s clash could hardly strike a more stark contrast but Spurs star Gareth Bale has insisted on caution ahead of the clash with the 4/1 underdogs. He looks right to be wary, given the Tangerines’ shock value this season.

Tipped to be among the Premier League’s worst ever teams, Ian Holloway’s side continue to make waves, having beaten Stoke at the Britannia Ground last time out.

They have suffered at the hands of the league’s big teams however, losing heavily to Arsenal and Chelsea, so surely the 13/5 draw would be considered a good result for the hosts.

With both teams known for their attacking intent, it could hardly be a better weekend for Sportingbet to run the Goal Rush promotion, where you can get losing bets refunded if there are five or more goals in the match.

Simply back your hunch in the First Goalscorer, Anytime Goalscorer, Correct Score and Scorecast markets to qualify, with up to £25 getting a second chance as a free bet if the goal-fest ensues.

Rafael Van der Vaart could be in contention to make an early return from injury and the 6/5 on him to beat one of the league’s worst defences at any time looks appealing, while the same argument could be made for Jermain Defoe (4/5), Gareth Bale (11/5) or Luka Modric (3/1).

Meanwhile, the Sportingbet Podcast was on fire last weekend, tipping up winners in the Premier League, weekend horse racing and NFL among others - so tune in this week to see if we can maintain our form. Listen now!

Odds correct at time of writing...
