Bet on Brighton to stay top

| 14.01.2011

Darren Ferguson could not have asked for a tougher start in the first game of his second stint as Peterborough manager as it comes away at current table-toppers Brighton.

Peterborough are 7/2 to beat Brighton, which would be just their fourth away victory in League One this season.

Furthermore, the Posh did win away at Brighton in the league during the last campaign, although this is their only success in the last 15 meetings between the pair.

Brighton are the only team in League One to still have an unbeaten home record this season and it is 4/5 that they beat Peterborough.

If Brighton do lose at home, then Southampton could take over top spot in the title race if they win at St Mary’s against the improving Notts County.

Notts County come into the game on the back of a seven-game unbeaten run and have won their last three games in all competitions, including an away win at Premier League Sunderland in the FA Cup third round.

It is 5/1 in the League One betting odds that Notts County beat Southampton and continue to climb the table, but Southampton are in no bad form themselves, winning their last five games in all competitions.

Southampton are 8/15 to beat Notts County, with the draw priced at 3/1.

Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton are two of the other teams fully involved in the League One promotion picture and the hosts represent the best betting option to take the three points at Hillsborough at 1/1.

The Owls have won their last five home games and stuck six past Bristol Rovers in their last game at Hillsborough.

Charlton are 11/4 to land the spoils, with the draw 12/5.

A £25 bet on Brighton beating Peterborough 3-1 could see a return of £400. New Ladbrokes customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
