Carlisle United are 4/1 to derail Blackpool's play-off push with victory at Brunton Park today.

While the Blues are already relegated, their visitors are holding onto hopes of a top-six finish.

Paul Simpson, against his former club, will hope to guide Carlisle to back-to-back victories for the first time this campaign, with William Hill pricing a United win at 4/1 and BetVictor offering 15/4.

Neil Critchley's eighth-placed Blackpool are hoping to make up a three-point gap to the play-offs, and they are odds-on for victory in Cumbria.

A Tangerines win is 4/6 with SpreadEx and 13/20 with Bet365.

The draw at Brunton Park is 3/1.

Sam Lavelle, Carlisle's Blackpool-born defender, has scored in two of United's last three games including Tuesday's winner at Cheltenham Town.

He is 40/1 to open the scoring today and 18/1 to find the net at any stage against his home-town club.

Shorter-odds contenders for the opener today include Blues frontmen Luke Armstrong at 10/1 and Georgie Kelly at 12/1.

Joshua Kayode, meanwhile, is 12/1 for the first goal on his first Brunton Park appearance for three years, with the striker 5/1 for a goal at any point in the game.

For Blackpool, both Shayne Lavery and Jake Beesley are 5/1 to hit the first goal this afternoon, with CJ Hamilton 10/1 and Karamoko Dembele 17/2.

Longer shots for the game's opener include United's Jon Mellish at 28/1 and Fin Back at 40/1, while for Blackpool, Matty Pennington is 25/1 and Marvin Ekpiteta is priced 33/1.

Carlisle went down to a 3-0 defeat at Bloomfield Road in December, and the Seasiders are 12/1 to win by a similar scoreline this afternoon.

That result in United's favour is priced 80/1.

A second successive 1-0 win for the Cumbrians is 12/1 as they eye a first home victory since New Year's Day.

A 1-1 draw is 7/1 while Blackpool are 15/2 for a 2-1 victory.
