This is no foregone conclusion

BETTING: After stumbling to a rare defeat at Millwall last weekend, the Canaries will be keen to return to winning ways when they visit Brighton tomorrow. On paper, this looks a straightforward assignment as only bottom club Stockport have a poorer home record than the Seagulls, hence Betfred have had little hesitation installing Norwich as their 10/11 favourites.

After stumbling to a rare defeat at Millwall last weekend, the Canaries will be keen to return to winning ways when they visit Brighton tomorrow.

On paper, this looks a straightforward assignment as only bottom club Stockport have a poorer home record than the Seagulls, hence Betfred have had little hesitation installing Norwich as their 10/11 favourites.

However, Brighton have suffered just one league defeat in their last seven, a record which suggests this could be much closer than many punters expect and which adds appeal to Jaxx.com's 5/2 odds posted against the draw.

Norwich were two up inside 22 minutes when the sides met at Carrow Road in November and punters expecting a repeat performance can get 9/2 (William Hill) against City leading at the 15-minute mark. Victor Chandler rate Norwich an 8/13 shot to open the scoring and Stan James posts 13/10 about them being in front at the break.

In other markets, 888Sport offer 6/5 against the Canaries retaining a clean sheet - something they failed to do against Brighton in November - while bet365's even money odds for the game's total goal minutes to exceed 135 has been well supported.

Punters anticipating goals will like the look of Betdaq's 10/11 for the fixture to yield more than two, while Partybets price City at 5/2 to win when kicking off the second half with a one-goal deficit.
