The late-blossoming Leeds promotion push you’ve been reading about intently on this very site will have to wait another game before it gets going, with three points for Norwich nailed on this evening.
Their Carrow Road clash accounts for one arm of our three-pronged path to profit where a 10/1 payday lies at the end.
Fulham and Huddersfield account for the other two segments, but the odds-on Canaries represent the best value of tonight’s bets.
Norwich to beat Leeds @ 1/2
A mid-autumn wobble has seen the East Anglian outfit ousted from the summit.
They haven’t won in three, losing to Charlton and Fulham in that time, but the travel-sick Whites will kindly help them back on track.
Five of Leeds’ seven away outings have ended in despair, including both sojourns under Darko Milanic and they’ve only won once at this venue since 1980.
Huddersfield to beat Brighton @ 17/10
A performance entirely void of attacking ideas saw the Seagulls shot down by a far-from-brilliant Middlesbrough side last time out and any half-decent defence should stymie Sami Hyypia’s side with ease.
With three wins and a draw from their last four, it wouldn’t be unfair to assume the Terriers are in possession of such a backline and, having put nine past their foes on this run, Brighton are likely to be too preoccupied with stopping the hosts scoring to consider bagging themselves.
Fulham to beat Rotherham @ 17/10
The Cottagers’ up-turn in form under Kit Symons means it’ll be mighty harsh if the west Londoners overlook their caretaker gaffer when it comes to eventually appointing a new manager.
They’ve won four from five under the Welshman across all competitions after losing seven of eight league games with Felix Magath at the helm.
Rotherham don’t tend to score many, with the two goals plundered at home to Leeds last time out taking their tally at the New York Stadium to just six from as many matches.
Fulham have the superior resources and shouldn’t have a great deal of difficulty getting the job done here.
