Oxford vs Blackpool Head-to-head (h2h)

  • The host has recorded three of the last five wins in their clashes.

  • Blackpool has failed to score in three of the prior four fixtures.
  • Their previous encounter awarded a 2-1 home win for the Seasiders.

Oxford vs Blackpool Prediction

Even though Oxford is winless in their last four matches, three of them have ended in a draw. In their previous ten clashes, the Yellows have lost only three games in all major competitions.

In their previous encounter, the host was on the road in the FA Cup clash. They faced Newcastle and both teams failed to find the back of the net in ninety minutes.

Along with that, the home team will have the home ground advantage in the game. Their stats at home also prove the same as they have lost only two of their ten attempts in all major competitions.

Blackpool has been winless in their last nine overall fixtures with six losses in it. Also, they are on a three-game losing streak in the league and seems to continue that trend.

Their previous encounter with Wycombe on the road ended with the host scoring early two goals to secure the win despite the one goal fightback from Blackpool.

Another concern for Simon Grayson will be playing with an away handicap in the match. His side has been winless in the last ten away games with three losses coming within the last four trips.

So, the punters will lean towards the host having the upper hand in the league table along with their home ground advantage. As such, it is better to draw no bet upon Oxford since they are not at their best form right now.

Another area where the punters can probably have a good shot will be at the goal-scoring department. Since their most recent h2h saw both teams scoring in the ninety minutes, we can expect the same trend to follow in the match.
