Last updated : 14 January 2009 By Covsupport News Service
Coventry City are odds on favourites to beat Blackpool on Saturday according to Bookmakers BET365.

The Sky Blues won their last home league game beating Sheffield Wednesday 2-0 but had not won a home game in the previous six attempts.

The Sky Blues are 4/5 to win the game at the Ricoh Arena which kicks off at 3pm.

Blackpool are a 3-1 shot and you can get 12/5 on a draw.

This is the 23rd match between the two sides. City have won seven with two draws and have scored 22 goals compared to Blackpool's 29.

Earlier in the season, the sides drew 1-1 at Bloomfield Road. Freddie Eastwood scored for the Sky Blues to cancel out Ben Burgess' 56th minute goal.

In the corresponding fixture last season, City beat Blackpool 3-1. Andy Morrell opened the scoring but City hit back with a Michael Doyle penalty and goals from Michael Mifsud and Robbie Simpson.
