Brighton To Secure The Championship Title At Norwich
With promotion to the Premier League already assured, Brighton can secure the Championship title by winning Friday night's game at Norwich and the Seagulls look good value to get something out of their trip to Carrow Road...
- Norwich have won 1 of their 12 meetings against the current top-seven teams in the Championship - Drawn 3, Lost 8
- Since sacking Alex Neil on 10th March, Norwich have won 3 of 7 games - Drawn 1, Lost 3
- Brighton have won 5 league games in a row

|Tips||Brighton win with 'draw no bet' Best Bet||@ 23 / 20|
Brighton have gone so close to promotion in recent years but they finally confirmed their return to the top-flight for the first time since 1983 by beating Wigan 2-1 last weekend. A seventh victory in eight games moved them seven points clear of second-placed Newcastle and a win on Friday would be enough to see them crowned champions.
Brighton are 2/1 for the win (Bet 365) and they will fancy their chances against this Norwich side, who are out of the race for the play-offs despite beating Preston North End 3-1 last weekend.
Brighton Offer Value
Norwich's season is effectively over so they make little appeal as 27/20 favourites for this match, particularly when you consider the fact that they have lost eight of their twelve fixtures against the teams above them in the table this season (won one, drawn three).
With that in mind, the Brighton win with 'draw no bet' at a touch of odds-against (23/20 with Paddy Power) is too good to ignore and the visitors are our tip for what promises to be an entertaining game.
Brighton haven't kept a clean sheet in six fixtures played at fellow top-eight sides this term, while Norwich have been the division's great entertainers, with the Canaries scoring 76 goals (only Fulham have scored more) and conceding 66 goals (only relegated Rotherham and relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest have conceded more).
Over 2.5 goals is a bet for odds on backers (8/11 with Sky Bet) and it is a bet that has paid out in 70% of Norwich's league games, including in eleven of their twelve meetings with the current top-eight teams in the division.
Murray Is Mint
Indeed, when the teams met in October, Brighton thrashed Norwich 5-0 as they recorded a first win in eight meetings with the Canaries and Glenn Murray helped himself to a hat-trick at the Amex Stadium.
Murray, who has scored four in his last five league outings, is 5/1 favourite to score first on Friday (Sky Bet) but it is worth noting that 19 of his 22 goals have come on home soil this season.
