Bournemouth fail to take advantage as Brighton crash out of cup

| 20.02.2011

Brighton may have crashed out of the FA Cup to Stoke, but Gus Poyet can take solace in the fact that his side are now odds-on for the League One title.

With second-placed Bournemouth and third-placed Huddersfield facing off and sharing the spoils on Saturday, Brighton are now 4/5 to win League One.

Brighton lead Bournemouth by two points in the League One table but have three matches in hand on Lee Bradbury’s side, and are looking strong as the title race enters the final third of the season.

Huddersfield (10/1) find themselves ahead of Bournemouth (12/1) in the League One winners betting market after taking the point away from home, but the dangers to Brighton still remain Southampton at 7/4 to win the title.

Like Brighton, Southampton didn’t feature in League One this weekend but they find themselves eight points behind Brighton having played the same amount of games as the league leaders.

Brighton are at home to Plymouth and are the short-priced favourites at 4/11 to beat the Devonshire side.

Southampton travel to Hartlepool in what could be a potentially difficult fixture for Nigel Adkins’ side, but the betting market makes Southampton the 5/6 favourites to win.

With eight games in League One on Tuesday night, there are plenty of betting opportunities for punters to take advantage of and Tuesday night could prove very profitable.

A £25 double on Brighton and Southampton winning would return £62.50. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
