This is the final matchday in the Championship. Brighton have secured the historic first promotion to the Premier League a while ago, and their motivation dropped significantly later on. Brighton lost their last two matches without finding the net, and now must win at Aston Villa to be crowned as the second division champions, but it is unclear whether that title is really important for them. Aston Villa are closing a very disappointing season in midtable, and can be expected to give a real fight in order to make the fans happy before the summer break.

Aston Villa 3.40
(Odds taken from Bet365)
Aston Villa have a very good home record, especially in the last two months when they won six out of seven fixtures at Villa Park. That makes them favourites against rather unmotivated Brighton, and the odds on Aston Villa are incredibly good at 3.40. This is truly a phenomenal value bet. As always in such cases, the Draw No Bet insurance makes the chances of losing your stake much smaller, and the odds are still attractive at 2.37. It is worth mentioning that even in November, when Aston Villa were in crisis and Brighton were in top form, the game between them ended in a draw.
