Sky Bet have installed Brighton & Hove Albion as their 11/10 favourites for the match against Fulham on Saturday.
The visitors are 23/10 and the draw is the outsider of the three options at 5/2. The 11/10 bet is a short price for an Albion win and I much prefer the value offered up by the draw at 5/2.
This show of confidence from the Football League's sponsors comes after the loan signing of Darren Bent, who is 11/2 to net first.

The Aston Villa forward is certainly worth backing in the anticipation that he will start, and the third option in the game is to back draw/Brighton at 9/2 in the half-time/full-time category.
This much larger price helps insure against the risk of the main bet, while also ensuring a win-win scenario if it pans out.
Away from the Amex, betting value can be found in the following fixtures:
Watford to draw with Cardiff (5/2)
Liverpool to draw with Stoke (3/1)
Tottenham to draw with Everton (5/2)
