Brighton & Hove Albion travel to Bloomfield Road on Saturday to face bottom of the table Blackpool.
On paper it should be one of the Seagulls’ easier trips, but Blackpool cannot be completely written off. They held Albion to a goalless draw at the Amex earlier in the season and led 2-0 at Watford last Saturday before succumbing in the second period.
Sky Bet however have no qualms in installing Brighton as their odds-on 5/6 favourites, with the home side 10/3 and the draw 5/2. Backing odds-on away from home rarely represents value and so we will swerve the outrights.

Chris O’Grady is 11/2 to score the first goal and, on current form, this should be taken.
In the correct score markets, we struck lucky with a 3-2 prediction against Ipswich and, at 33/1, it is worth a small investment that this score line can be repeated.
Finally, and given the Albion’s penchant for a tardy start, Blackpool/Brighton is overpriced in the half-time/full-time category at 28/1.
