Brighton are 4/7 () to beat Notts County and move 10 points clear at the top of League One with a sixth straight win.
It’s now five wins in a row for Brighton as they edge towards the League One title and the Seagulls have to be fancied for a sixth straight success as they entertain relegation-threatened Notts County. Gus Poyet’s side are just 4/7 with to send the Magpies home empty-handed but a combination of the hosts’ mean defence and the visitors’ goal-shy attack could provide punters with a healthier return.
Brighton have kept three clean sheets in a row while County have managed just one goal, a penalty, in five outings so a modest stake on a Seagulls success ‘to nil’ at 7/5 (Paddy Power) is the call at the Withdean Stadium.
Promotion-chasing Southampton have won four in a row and should extend that sequence against out of sorts Charlton, but as Saints are away from home and quoted at a shade of odds-on to collect all three points (10/11, Stan James), it’s prudent to seek value elsewhere.
The place to look is the Colchester Community Stadium where U’s tackle Oldham. Both teams are in poor form, the Latics winless in ten and the hosts having lost four in a row but crucially both sides are struggling in attack, drawing plenty of blanks of late, which is why the best bet is Sportingbet’s 12/5 for the clash to produce fewer than 1.5 goals.
