Football League best bets for Good Friday


Norwich look cracking value to win at Brighton

The Easter weekend is jam-packed with football fixtures and it all kicks off with Football League action on Good Friday.

We’ve got the Championship, League One and League Two matches to investigate and there is some value knocking around.

NORWICH to beat Brighton @ 13/10 with William Hill
The Canaries are two points off automatic promotion and they face former manager Chris Hughton at the AMEX Stadium, with the Brighton boss having previously been in charge at Carrow Road.

However, Alex Neil is the gaffer now and the Scot has achieved good things in a short space of time with Norwich which means we’re prepared to back the visitors at a tasty 13/10 on Friday.

Until a recent 2-2 draw at Huddersfield, City had won their last four matches on the road and we reckon the same thing can happen against a Seagulls team who are short of goals at the moment. They have failed to score more than a goal in their last four games.

IPSWICH DNB to beat Bournemouth @ 11/10 with bet365
The bookies seem to be a bit generous with their odds about the Tractor Boys for this Sky Sports clash as the promotion race in the Championship intensifies.

Ipswich have won twelve, drawn four and lost three at Portman Road this term and face a Cherries team who are top of the table but are not world-beaters on the road, with ten wins from nineteen games this term.

Indeed, Eddie Howe’s team recently lost matches at Brentford and Nottingham Forest, with this game sure to be difficult against a team who nullified the Watford attack a fortnight ago.

CHESTERFIELD to beat Yeovil @ 6/5 with Ladbrokes
The Spireites are in the play-off places and Paul Cook will fancy his chances of another away win against a Glovers side who are going out of League One with a whimper.

Four straight defeats indicate that Town have given up the ghost this season, although Chesterfield could be headed the other way and they bounced into the top six with a midweek win at Bradford.

This match should represent an easier assignment, with five wins from the last seven matches for the visitors and just one goal conceded in the past four games.
