Ferret's Tips: Derby Away

17 January 2014

Life after Adam El-Abd begins for the Seagulls when they visit Derby County this Saturday and SkyBet are very certain where favouritism lies. 


The Football League's official sponsor has priced up the Rams at a very short looking 11/10, with the Seagulls paired with the Draw at 12/5. There is no value to be found in these outright prices, although Albion would be tempting if they slipped to 5/2 or 13/5.

The first recommendations this weekend should be familiar ones. BRIGHTON/DRAW and DERBY/DRAW are both 16/1 in the HALF-TIME/FULL-TIME category and this is always a backable price for the scenario - which I think is a more than realistic prospect.

For a goalscorer, JON OBIKA is interestingly priced at 15/2.  The same odds are on offer for first or last goal and perhaps in this case it is last goal that we should opt for. Obika has a solid scoring record at lower levels and is fancied to make the jump to the Championship with aplomb. I doubt that kind of price will be available to him in a month's time so we should try to make hay while the bookie overprices!

Good luck and happy punting!
