Brighton vs Charlton – Unbeaten home record could go

| 28.12.2010

Brighton may still be unbeaten at home in League One this season, but this run could soon come to an end as they host a Charlton side with a fine away record against the Seagulls.

Charlton have won both of their last two away games with Brighton, including when gaining a 2-0 win at the Withdean Stadium last season.

It is 11/4 that Charlton leave with another three points to bridge the gap at the top of the table, while another 2-0 success in favour of Phil Parkinson’s team can be backed at 14/1.

Brighton are 1/1 to secure the three points as they did when thumping Charlton 4-0 away from home in October, but perhaps the best betting opportunity may be attempting to uncover how many goals will be scored in the League One higher echelon clash.

Eight of the last ten encounters featuring the pair have seen a minimum of three goals scored and odds of 20/21 are available that this meeting sees more than 2.5 goals scored.

All of the last four showdowns between Huddersfield and Southampton have gone in favour of the home team, which bodes well for the Saints in another game featuring two of League One’s big promotion contenders.

Southampton are 10/11 in the League One betting odds to beat Huddersfield and they have managed nine goals in their last two home meetings with the opposition, including a 5-0 romp last season.

Huddersfield won the first game between the pair this season in October and they are 3/1 to ensure they take six points out of six from Southampton.

A £10 bet on Charlton beating Brighton 1-0 could lead to a return of £80. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £10 bet.
