Big Saturday Multiple: Canaries on song at home to Seagulls

Norwich will be looking for no less than three points today
Norwich will be looking for no less than three points today

It's Saturday - and you know what that means! Jonno Turner gives us his three picks from the bottom three divisions in English football...

Bet 1: Norwich City (HOME) @ 1.834/5

Bet 2: Notts County (HOME) @ 2.37

Bet 3: Portsmouth (HOME) @ 1.84/5

We're eyeing Championship action to kick off this three-team multiple, and we're off to Carrow Road, as Norwich City welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to Norfolk.

The Canaries head into this clash having lost their last two games - tricky ties at both Middlesbrough and Nottingham Forest - but will be looking to put that poor run to rest on their own patch today.

And they've been a lot more consistent in front of their own fans. In fact they've lost just one of their last nine competitive fixtures there, notching four wins and four draws, a run which has seen them to 10th in the table.

Boss Neil Adams will be looking towards his strike force of Cameron Jerome and Lewis Grabban to fire his team to glory here, and with 14 goals between them already this campaign.

Visitors Brighton line up for this encounter sitting in 20th, and are in the midst of a miserable run, having won just one from their last 10.

Sami Hyypia's charges are even worse away from the Amex Stadium too, they're without a win in five, and a quintet of goals shipped in their last three hours of football suggests that they have holes in their backline.

Historically, this is a positive fixture for the hosts - they're unbeaten in five meetings against the Seagulls, winning four and drawing one.

Bet 1: Norwich City (HOME) @ 1.834/5

Dropping a division now, to League One, as Notts County host struggling Yeovil at Meadow Lane.

The Magpies have put together an impressive string of results of late, unbeaten in 13 of their last 15 outings, and that has seen them climb to fourth in the third tier.

In addition to that, seven wins from 10 indicates that Shaun Derry's side have developed a real cutting edge in the last few weeks - and three clean sheets from five suggests that they're not too shabby at the back, either.

At home, County have not lost in six of their last seven, and nine goals notched, in comparison to four clean sheets, underlines just how strong they have been.

Away side Yeovil make the long trip up from the south west without a win in five, and boss Gary Johnson hasn't seen his team score in three of their last four.

That leaves the Glovers sitting rock bottom of the table, with 14 points from their 17 outings so far this campaign, and 10 goals shipped in five points to the possibility that they are likely to concede today.

County have won two of their last three meetings with Yeovil at home, and I reckon they're a decent bet to repeat that here.

Bet 2: Notts County (HOME) @ 2.37


And finally, we're looking at the bottom tier, as Portsmouth welcome Morecambe down to the south coast in League Two.

The home side are unbeaten in four outings at Fratton Park going into this game, and that leaves them sitting in 13th place in the table as we fast approach December.

In fact, back-to-back league wins on their own turf, will have them full of momentum, and six goals notched in those two ties suggests that they're firing on all cylinders right now.

And that makes 10 League Two games unbeaten from their last 11 at their stadium, with a massive 22 goals scored.

Visitors Morecambe sit just above their hosts, in eighth place in the table, but their recent form has been less than perfect.

Eight losses from their last 12 suggests that the Shrimpers have a soft centre, and on the road, they've been poor, too.

Indeed, five losses from seven away from the Globe Arena indicates that the guests might be suffering from a touch of travel sickness, and boss Jim Bentley will be keen to find the cure. 

The last time they played away from home, Morecambe lost 1-0 to non-league Dover Athletic in the FA Cup a fortnight ago - and the last time they lined up at Fratton Park, they were on the wrong side of a 3-0 beating.

Bet 3: Portsmouth (HOME) @ 1.84/5
