Reds v Brighton: Betting Preview

3 April 2014

Brighton will attempt to halt Barnsley’s resurgent survival battle when the two sides meet at Oakwell on Saturday.

The Tykes have been cut from 4/1 to 12/5 to stay up by the Football League title sponsor Sky Bet after winning their last two, recording 3-1 and 4-1 victories at Reading and Yeovil respectively, with another three points potentially bringing them level with 21st-placed Charlton.

However, the Seagulls have their own objective still in sight as they sit three points outside the play-offs and are rated 16/1 chances to secure promotion.

Oscar Garcia’s men are the 11/10 favourites to collect maximum points this weekend with their hosts 5/2 outsiders, while Sky Bet go 23/10 for spoils to be shared.

Barnsley defied the odds when they triumphed 2-1 at the American Express Community Stadium earlier in the season, a result which they are 10/1 to repeat.

Brighton’s leading marksman Leonardo Ulloa is the 7/2 favourite to open the scoring while Chris O’Grady, who bagged at brace at Yeovil last weekend, is considered the hosts’ biggest threat at 5/1 to break the deadlock.
