Brighton & Hove Albion take on Milwall in the Friday night clash at the Amex, as the Seagulls look to return to winning ways.
Sky Bet, the official sponsors of the Football League and Albion's bookmaking partner, have priced up Sami Hyypia's side as their odds-on 19/20 favourites, which will attract a degree of backing from value-conscious punters. The draw is priced 23/10, while the visitors are given a 3/1 quote.
Odds-on is a tricky price to get involved in however, so I will look for better value elsewhere.

Darren Bent immediately jumps out at 5/1 to score the first goal of the contest and he can reward us by netting for the second home game in succession.
In the half-time/full-time contest, two contrasting wagers represent the best value and both can be backed at the prices available; Brighton/draw is 16/1, while Millwall/Brighton is 28/1.
Finally, for a total goals tally I like the look of four at 11/2.
The best value elsewhere in the Championship is to back three draws in a combination wager; Leeds/Fulham (13/5), Brentford/Blackburn (5/2) and Birmingham/Reading (12/5).
