Brighton v Bournemouth Prediction & Betting Tips, 1st January 201831st December 2017 / lee
Brighton v Bournemouth Premier League Preview, 1st January 12.30pm
The Seagulls need to continue with some positives on home soil to keep themselves afloat. They have to recognise that this is a good opportunity at getting some survival points on the board as they welcome Bournemouth. The Cherries have been floundering on the road and may have trouble breaking down the Seagulls. Brighton are 6/5 to get the win, with the draw at 11/5 and Bournemouth are at 12/5.
Brighton News and Form
Brighton have collected just one win in their last seven home league games, but also during that sequence they have lost just once at the Amex and that was against Liverpool. They ground out a 1-0 home win over Watford just before Christmas in their most recent home game and that is three clean sheets in their last four at home now for the Seagulls. Brighton to win to nil at Coral is worth considering. Up in the correct score market, the 0-0 draw and the 1-0 home win are both going to be running as strong short-priced options. Just 30% of Brighton’s home games in the top flight this season have gone over 2.5 goals. The Seagulls have netted ten goals and have conceded twelve so far at home in the top flight and five of those goals conceded came in that loss against Liverpool recently. So they have taken a clean sheet in 40% of their home games. The half time draw may well have good appeal as the Seagulls have been level at the break in six of their ten home fixtures.
Bournemouth News and Form
The Cherries badly need to pick up some points out on the road to give themselves a lift. They go to the Amex after back to back away defeats against Manchester United and then Manchester City. They failed to score in either of those defeats and they are winless in four out on the road now, failing to score in three of those. Away from home, they are W2 D2 L6 for the season and they have tallied just the six goals away from home. They have conceded at a rate of an average of 1.5 goals per game away from the Vitality. Overall home and away Bournemouth have not managed a clean sheet in any of their last seven games and the Cherries have conceded at least two in each of their last three. So they are going to be a little vulnerable here. 67% of the goals that they have scored this season away from home have been in the first half of matches. Four of their away defeats have been by a one goal margin. Both teams not to score at Coral is going to be a decent option to consider for the clash down on the south coast. Callum Wilson is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option for them.
Brighton v Bournemouth Head to Head
Bournemouth have won two meetings already with the Seagulls this season, taking home wins over them in the league and the EFL Cup. They are on a four match winning streak against Brighton in all competitions and are unbeate in eight against them. Things are even in the last four between them at Brighton though with a win each and two draws.
Who will win – Brighton v Bournemouth Predictions
There is a good chance for Brighton here and they could be a bit of value on home soil to get the win on the board. This is likely going to be a low scoring affair and a1-0 correct score on the home side looks decent enough value.
