EFL preview: Brighton set for further boost

Last Updated April 22 2017, 14:05Football

Simon Crawford makes Brighton to win at Norwich his best bet for this weekend in the Sky Bet EFL.

Recommended bet: 


3pts Brighton to beat Norwich at 2/1 - Already-promoted Brighton are an inviting price to defeat a Norwich side with nothing but pride to play for

Our fully transparent tipping record can be found by clicking here. 

Brighton to beat Norwich, Championship

Having clinched promotion to the Premier League on Monday by beating Wigan 2-1, we fancy Brighton to go on now and win the title. The Seagulls have won seven of their last eight games and look too big at 2/1 to win at a Norwich side who have slipped out of the play-off race and have won just two of their last six at Carrow Road with Fulham winning there 3-1 on Good Friday.

Other bets worth considering:

Bristol City to draw with Barnsley, Championship

There will be an expectant and large crowd at Ashton Gate hoping to see Bristol City get three points that would go a long way to ensuring Sky Bet Championship survival. But we think there may be some jitters for the home side to endure and with already-safe Barnsley having drawn four of their last seven matches a share of the spoils looks a good call in this one.

Fleetwood to win at Gillingham, League One

The automatic promotion-chasing Cod Army are odds against to win at struggling Gillingham and we feel that has to be of interest. Fleetwood are on a good run having won four and drawn two of their last eight as they look to pip Bolton for second spot. The Gills are desperate for points at the wrong end of the table and have lost five of their last seven games so we expect an away win here.

Rochdale to win at Oldham, League One

Derby matches are never easy to predict but at this stage of the season, with so much still to play for, form and momentum are huge factors so we are siding with play-off chasing Rochdale in this one at odds against. Dale are just outside the top six but are putting together a late push with three wins in their last four games. Oldham need a point to be totally safe and we feel Rochdale will make them wait a little longer before that safety is guaranteed.

Grimsby to beat Yeovil, League Two

Grimsby are an easily backable 17/10 to win Saturday's home game against Yeovil, who have won just three times on the road this season and we feel that's a price that has to be snapped up. The Mariners have won eight and drawn five of 21 games at Blundell Park this season and beat an in-form Cambridge 2-1 on Good Friday. Yeovil have won just one of their last seven and look there for the taking for Grimsby at a big price.

Leyton Orient to win at Crewe, League Two

Orient look certain to be relegated out of the Football League for the first time in their proud history. But a 2-2 draw at high-flying Luton followed by Easter Monday's 2-1 home win over Hartlepool suggest they will not go down without a fight after having lost their previous six. The O's are over 4/1 to win at a Crewe side still not clear of danger and without a win in their last four so we think Orient's do-or-die attitude could prevail here.
