Last updated : 11 December 2010 By Dan Buxton

Stoke City will look to extend their unbeaten run to six games when they host Blackpool in todays big game.

The Potters are favourites at 4/6 with BetFred, Boylesports and PaddyPower whilst the visitors are outsiders at 5/1 with BetFred for the game whilst a draw is available at 16/5 with VictorChandler.

Stoke will hope to repeat the recent home win against Liverpool to rise further up the table. A repeat of that 2-0 home win is available at 17/2 with WilliamHill. All but two of the Potters league wins this season have been by a one goal margin. A 2-1 win, to keep that run going, is available at 15/2 with SkyBet.

Blackpool will be hoping to seal another incredible top flight win  and 1-0 would do the visitors would do them just nicely. That score is available at 16's with most bookmakers. Six of the Potters games this season have ended 2-1 so 18/1 with BetFred for a 2-1 Wigan win could turn out to be a good bet.

Kenwyne Jones is the Potters top scorer and on his day is unplayable and is 9/2 with Bet365 to open the scoring whilst Ricardo Fuller has two in three and looks set to start up front and is also 11/2 with unibet to score first. In form winger Matthew Etherington has netted in the last three games and can be backed at 9's, with PaddyPower, to break the deadlock.

Blackpool are enjoying life in the top flight and star man Charile Adam is firing and is 12's with BlueSQ to break the deadlock, whilst Luke Varney will be looking to build on his recent good form in fronit of goal and is 12/1 with Coral to net first.
