Brighton v Everton Prediction & Betting Tips – 15th October 201712th October 2017 / lee
Brighton v Everton Premier League, 15th October 1.30pm
Big clash on the south coast as Brighton and Everton are sitting on just the seven points for the season in the bottom half of the table. That means that they are just a couple of points away from the drop zone. So there are an important three points up for grabs here and can the Seagulls pull off the win on the back of their home form, as Everton have been struggling on their travels this season? Everton are 13/10 to pick up the away win, with the draw at 23/10 and Brighton are at 21/10.
Brighton v Everton Betting Tips
Brighton may fancy their chances on home soil in this one. They have done alright at home actually with a W2 L1 record from their three league home games so far, winning the last two back to back. The one loss at the Amex was against Manchester City so that can be written off. While they are struggling on the road then, they have a case to make for themselves at home in this one. Six of Brighton’s seven games this season have seen two goals or less and under 2.5 goals at bet365 returns a price of 4/7 which has to scream appeal. Brighton are not blessed with a great array of attacking power and Everton have been struggling for goals all season long, so this probably will be a tight affair and both teams NOT to score is a quote of 3/4.
Last Six Head to Head
Brighton 1 – 2 Everton
Everton 2 – 2 Brighton
Brighton 3 – 1 Everton
Everton 1 – 1 Brighton
Everton 4 – 3 Brighton
Brighton 1 – 3 Everton
So can the Seagulls grind one out in this one? Glenn Murray is a 9/4 anytime goalscorer option for them. Unfortunately, Tomer Hemed who had scored in his last two home games is serving out a three match ban for violent conduct against Newcastle in their last home fixture back on September 24th. In the bet365 correct score market, the 1-1 draw is the shortest priced option at 11/2 and a Brighton 1-0 will return a price of 7/1. A win for them is highly unlikely to be any bigger score than that. The Seagulls have scored in just three of their seven league games this season. This will be the first clash between the two sides since way back in the 1982/83 season of the Old Division 1. The Seagulls have not been behind at half time in any of their home games so far so they can stick in there.
Current League Form (most recent last)
Everton’s disappointing season took another major hit just before the international break. After beating Bournemouth 2-1 on September 23rd to snap a four match unbeaten streak, they went back out at Goodison Park in their next match and lost against Burnley. So, boss Ronald Koeman has to be closer still to an exit if they don’t pick up a win in this one. A loss here may just break the camel’s back for Koeman’s job security. So far away from home in the Premier League this season, Everton have collected just the one point and they have scored just the one goal as well. Granted, they haven’t had the easiest sequence of away games, having been to Man City, Chelsea and Man Utd. Still, they should have been more competitive.
Their failure to replace Romelu Lukaku in the summer looks a major foul by them and Wayne Rooney, Sandro Ramirez and Dominic Calvert-Lewin along with Oumar Niasse are all 2/1 anytime goalscorer options for them and that’s it. You would expect them to have someone at odds-on. But Everton have failed to score in four of their seven games this season and have totalled just the four league goals. Only Swansea and Crystal Palace have managed fewer. That is whey the Toffees find themselves stuck near the drop zone, level on points with Brighton. A half time draw at even money with bet365 screams some big value.
Who will win – Brighton v Everton Predictions
Brighton to win: With Everton misfiring this season the Seagulls are worth a punt in this one as they are at least carrying some home from going into this one. It will probably be a low scoring match but the Seagulls can collect three points in this one.
