Brighton Can Win Vital Point Against United
Brighton are currently in 14th place in the Premier League and five points above the relegation places. With just three matches remaining they look safe but a bizarre combination of results could still see the club make an immediate return to the Championship. Brighton are owned by Tony Bloom who has been a successful professional gambler in the past and owns several race horses.
Bloom probably seeks out value but a good insurance policy is to back BRIGHTON to be relegated which is on offer at 50/1 with bet365. It would be grossly inappropriate for Bloom to back his own club to lose their Premier League status but its just like taking out an insurance policy against Brighton dropping to the second tier. They still need points from tonight’s home match against Manchester United.
The visitors have qualified for the Champions League, second place is just about secured and they play Chelsea in the FA Cup Final on May 19th. On that Saturday there is a huge global occasion at an iconic venue in the London area. There are two factions involved, everybody will probably drink too much and there will be a huge fight at the end. We are not talking about the Cup Final but the Royal Wedding!
United have three league matches before the meeting with Chelsea at Wembley, starting with Brighton on the road. The hosts have lost once in seven fixtures at home in all competitions and they can avoid defeat tonight. Despite needing the points more than United a DRAW could be their best outcome and that result is with 3/1 with Betfair.
There are four Flat meetings in Britain and Cheltenham stages their hunter chase fixture but most prize money is on offer at Cork’s all hurdles and bumper night in Ireland. The richest race is the handicap hurdle over two miles four furlongs at 6.30. COURTNCATCHER has won off a higher handicap mark in the past and has run promisingly on recent starts so can make the frame at 25/1 with William Hill.
