Ferret's Tips: Crystal Palace v Albion

30 November 2012

Ferret is backing Albion to seal all three points during the second half on Saturday...

BetButler is a brand new way for punters to get involved in all of their favourite sporting action - including the Albion - and offers a painless and speedy way to always ensure that you get the best possible price.

BetButler scours the prices lists of over 100 different bookmakers - so you don't have to - and presents the best odds available for you to place your wager.

Take this weekend's Brighton match against Palace for example. The very best odds available on an Albion success are 3.35, and that is what BetButler will offer you.

Meanwhile, the home side are given a 2.38 quote. However for my own punting I prefer the look of the Draw at a very long 3.55. The price is long enough to offer appropriate compensation should the Seagulls not secure all three points, while also offering value so the stake commitment does not have to be too large to get a fairly decent return.

Although the net has bulged in the two recent away matches, in general goals have been something of a premium this season and Saturday may follow that pattern. Derbies always produce a highly-charged atmosphere and as a result, you either get a goal-fest where both sides throw caution to the wind, or more commonly a bit of gridlock, where the teams lock horns and cancel each other out.

For this reason consider backing Under 2.5 goals at 2.0. Is this really an even-money shot given results this season and the nature of this game?

Finally, I obviously have to throw in a blue 'n' white flavoured nugget to give you a way of celebrating should we secure the spoils. Opt for a cagey first half followed by an Albion winning second half. Back Draw/Brighton in the half-time/full-time category at odds of 7.8.

All prices are quoted in decimal, which may seem odd at first if you are used to more conventional odds. Whereas in conventional odds, your stake is not included within the odds, in decimal it is. So 2/1 becomes 3.00, meaning that for every £1 that you invest you will get £3 back - your £1 stake, and £2 profit.

Also note that BetButler will deduct 3% from winnings as a service fee, but this is an acceptable price to pay for the greater value achieved and compares positively with the up to 5% charged by the spread-betting companies like Betfair.

Additionally, prices are dynamic and can and will change with market fluctuations.
