Championship betting, Brighton - Doncaster

After a superior season in 3rd tier, the Seagulls probably couldn’t wish a better opponent for a first game in Championship. As every newcomer, their enthusiasm will be highest at the start. In fact, when I think a little bit better, they maybe even have some chance for good result. Poyet made a first class surprise and beat other rivals for a Craig Mackail-Smith’s signature (35 goals last season in League One). 
Donny were one of the worst travellers last season and conceded 50 goals in 23 away games. They haven’t strenghten the team too much (I’ve noticed Giles Barnes from WBA) and probably one more season of struggling is in front. However, they usually have a good start of the campaign and maybe they can surprise today.
I was in dilemma, home win or goals. Brighton will have to adopt to their new home, Falmer Stadium (will probably be packed though). They scored 54 goals in League One at home and got huge quality in Mackail-Smith. On the other hand, both sides play a nice passing game that usually produces some goals. Over for me.
