FERRET'S WATFORD TIPS AND PREDICTIONS

24 April 2015


Ferret secured a 7-3 victory over Paul Waitforit Huber in last week’s Championship predictions.
 
Looking ahead to the Saturday and Monday's fixtures, Ferret puts his predicting skills to the test once again as he takes on another Albion fan - this week, it is Adam Fagg.
 
There are three points up for grabs for each correct score, while there is one point available for correctly guessing the result (picking the correct winner or a draw).
 
Throughout the rest of the season each fan’s score will be calculated and stored, with the supporter who has gained the most amount of points winning a to-be-confirmed Albion-related prize.
 
To be in with a chance of facing the Ferret for the final game of the season, keep an eye on the club’s official Facebook page.

FERRET'S WATFORD TIPS

Having effectively (if not mathematically) secured safety from relegation in midweek, Albion now have the chance to be party-poopers at the other end of the table in their last two games.
 

Given the tightness at the top of the Championship, it is fair to say that if Albion get even a point from either Watford or Middlesbrough then that will almost certainly be sufficient to prevent their opponents from securing automatic promotion to the Premier League.
 
Watford are up first, this Saturday, in a televised early kick-off at the Amex, and Sky Bet’s odds reflect the challenge that Chris Hughton’s men will face.  The Hornets are 4/5 odds-on favourites with SkyBet, with the Seagulls 10/3 and the draw in between at 13/5. 
 
Rather than bet on the outrights, we will instead spread our bankroll across the first goalscorer market. It is surprising how often in this type of game that the underdogs score first, and there are some good value propositions out there.
 
Chris O’Grady is 8/1 to score first and as an outsider, Jake Forster-Caskey could reward backers at 18/1.  Again if he does not get a starting berth then chances are that stakes will be refunded.
 
Finally No Goalscorer is 10/1 and certainly comes into play with the Albion back five definitely wanting to end the season with a clean sheet. Our goals against record is up there with those challenging for the play-offs and there is no guarantee that the Watford strike force will be able to break us down.
