Last week, Fulham extended their winning streak in the Championship, although Marco Silva's squad conceded two goals in their third consecutive meeting. Again, it was the attacking power of the Cottagers that made the difference. On Matchday 28, the London team took on Stoke City on the road with a score of 3-2. In the last four matches of the tournament, Fulham scored a total of 22 goals. With 57 points in their assets, the Cottagers are confidently leading the standings.
Blackpool have managed to play only two matches in 2022. First, the team failed on the road at hands of Hartlepool - a 1-2 defeat and relegation from the FA Cup. Then the club took Millwall at home in the next round of the Championship. Blackpool rehabilitated for the failure in the Cup and defeated the Londoners. Prior to that, Blackpool outplayed Hull City, and the last two appearances in the tournament saw the team beat their opponents with a score of 1-0. With 36 points Blackpool are in 14th place in the Championship table.
In the first round of the current Championship campaign, Blackpool really shocked the opponent at their arena and won 1-0. The only goal in this meeting was scored by Bowler at the beginning of the second half. In total, the clubs have met in 92 matches. Surprisingly, Blackpool are ahead by the number of wins, 36-27.

Expert Betting Tips
The participation of one of the Fulham leading players, Mitrovic, is questionable, but even without the powerful forward, the Londoners have someone to score and make the difference on the field. In the first half of the season, Blackpool managed to make a sensation, but now there is simply no reason why the guests will be able to beat the Cottagers, especially at their Craven Cottage. I believe that Fulham will get another easy win in the Championship and the game will be productive, that is, the stats with Total Under in head-to-head will change. I suggest betting on the following options in the upcoming match:
- Total Over (2.75) for 1.675;
- H1 (-1.5) for 1.775;
- W1 in 1st Half for 1.74.
