Nigel Adkins believes new signing Billy Sharp can help his Southampton side clinch a second successive promotion this season.
The former Doncaster Rovers striker played a key role in Saturday's 2-0 win against Burnley, a result that leaves the Saints at 1213.00 to win promotion from the Championship.
West Ham United are 1.50 go up this term, while Birmingham City can be backed at 5.00 and Brighton at 1213.00.
Adam Lallana's early header had put Southampton in control before Sharp sealed the victory with a second goal.

Adkins said of Sharp: "He's going to be a massive threat in this league. But it isn't about 11 players, we have a very strong squad to deal with the latter stages of the campaign.
"You can see the link-up play between Rickie Lambert and Billy, there are goals in both of them. They are going to be a huge threat for any defence."
Lambert is 1.12 to be the Championship's top scorer this season while Sharp is available at 81.00.
