Bournemouth not slowing down in chase of Brighton

| 31.01.2011

Bournemouth may be overpriced at 12/1 to win League One this season as their assault on the title shows no signs of slowing up.

Away victories have largely proved the small problem for Bournemouth, but they did collect their third win on the road with a victory at Plymouth.

The result not only saw Bournemouth remain in the second automatic promotion spot and move to within three points of Brighton at the head of the League One standings, but also represented a first victory for Lee Bradbury since being appointed as permanent manager.

However, they have played two games more than Brighton, but the fact they have won the most home games in the division this season will no doubt keep them in the promotion race.

This should ensure that they lose no ground on Brighton in the next round of League One fixtures, when they host Swindon.

Bournemouth are 8/11 in the League One betting odds to beat Swindon and do the double over the opposition this season following their 2-1 success at the County Ground.

There is also a strong possibility that they could bridge the gap further on Brighton as the leaders face a tricky trip to Leyton Orient next.

Brighton have failed to win any of their last four away games with Leyton Orient and this is perhaps why they are 5/4 to secure victory.

Orient will also want revenge for their 5-0 drubbing at Brighton earlier in the season and are 21/10 to claim the three points.

Brighton’s hefty position in the League One standings has led to them being priced at 5/4 to earn the title this season.

A £25 stake on Bournemouth beating Swindon 3-0 in their next league encounter would return £275. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
