6 fold – TNS, Brighton, Derby, Leeds, Luton and Monaco all to win @ 12.66/1 (BetVictor)
TNS are 31 unbeaten, only failing to win once in that run. That game being a 3-3 draw in their last away game, where they conceded a 94th min equaliser. Since then they have won 3 on the bounce, scoring 13, and haven’t conceded. Carmarthen on the other hand are a mid table side, and their form in their last 11 proves this, winning 4, drawing 3 and losing 4.
Brighton are currently 2nd in the Championship, and on a superb run of form at home, winning 6 on the bounce. They need to bounce back on from a couple of disappointing results Saturday, after losing to a good Huddersfield side and drawing 3-3 away at Brentford. They will face a Burton side who are in a relegation battle. They have won 3 of their last 12, losing the rest, showing why they are where they are. Also, with the uncertainty around their manager Nigel Clough going to Nottingham Forest to follow in his father’s footsteps, that could provide an unwelcome distraction.
Derby’s home form speaks for itself, winning 7 of their last 10, drawing the rest. The key to Derby’s home record is that they don’t concede many, 4 goals in 10, 2 of which came in the cup against Leicester, and the other 2 coming against a fellow promotion contender in Reading. Tomorrow they play Bristol City, who are struggling, picking 1 point up in their last 10 away from home in the league.
Leeds have won 10 of their last 12 at home this season, with only Newcastle able to beat them, and Wigan snatched a draw with a last minute equaliser. Cardiff on the other hand have been a mixed bag this season, and find themselves in a pack of teams stuck between mid table and the relegation zone.
Luton have done well this season, and find themselves currently sitting in a playoff spot. In recent weeks they have won 4 of their last 5 at home, but the main reason for backing them tomorrow is the poorness of their opposition, Crawley. They have only managed 12 points away from home all season (15 games), the worst in the league. The main problem for this is their inability to find the back of the net, only managing 15 goals away from home, and conceding almost 2 goals a game when on their travels (conceded 29) they should find this very difficult.
Monaco are the last team to kick off in the acca at 7pm so hopefully it’s still alive at this point. They sit top of Ligue 1, mostly thanks to their home form, only dropping 5 out of a possible 36. However, they have also played well away from home recently, and are unbeaten in 8 in the league. They play against mid table Metz, and I can only see this game going 1 way. Metz have only managed to score 1 goal away in their last 7, losing 6 of those games and 1 drawing the other.
