Brighton certainly stand out here on both the overall head to head statistics and recent form statisitcs, add to that their excellent record at home this season and a chance to go top of the championship league table with a victory in this game, the hosts do look great value at their current odds on offer.

Sheffield Wednesday are doing ok this season but don’t have a great record in this fixture, however they are more than capable of nicking a point from this game and the draw should definitely be considered as your main cover option for this game with a correct score of either 0-0 or 1-1 looking the most likely outcome if the game did finish all square.

My First Goalscorer Free Tip is going to be for Brighton & Hove Albion striker Glenn Murray to score the first goal of this game as with 15 goals so far this season he is showing no signs of stopping and he looks a good choice at reasonable odds to fire his side into the lead in this one.
