Brighton v Tottenham Premier League Preview, 17th April 7.45pm
The Seagulls failed to win for the fourth game in a row as they lost out at Crystal Palace on the weekend. They have a comfortable buffer between themselves and the drop zone though so are going to be safe. This is another game though which may not offer up much for them. Spurs had their long unbeaten stretch snapped as they found Manchester City too hot to handle at Wembley on the weekend.
Brighton v Tottenham Betting Odds*
Tottenham 4/9, Draw 15/4, Brighton 7/1* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018)
Brighton News and Form
The Seagulls have taken just the one point in their last four league games. They had a right old ding-dong battle with Crystal Palace on the weekend at Selhurst Park, losing 3-2 but showing plenty of fight. The Seagulls have been alright at home recently with a W3 D1 L1 record at the Amex going, but they are winless in two there. Overall this season they have picked up a W6 D7 L4 record for the season at home. The half time draw at bet365 for 7/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) is worth considering as Brighton have been level at the break in ten of their home fixtures this season. The Seagulls haven’t actually kept a clean sheet in any of their last seven league home games though and on average have conceded 1.4 goals per home game. They have taken a clean sheet in only 24% of their entire home games. But still with all that added up, less than half of their home games have gone above 2.5 goals so it’s worth looking under the goal line. Two-thirds of their entire matches this season have ended under 2.5 goals. Brighton have scored 64% of their home goals this season in the second half of matches.
Tottenham News and Form
Tottenham just didn’t get a look in at home against Manchester City on the weekend at Wembley, losing 3-1. They were a distant second best to the newly crowned Premier League champions. It snapped a fourteen match undefeated streak of form that they were on too. Their away form is still good though having put together a four-match winning streak away from Wembley, scoring at least two goals in each of their last three. Spurs are undefeated in their last eight road games in the top flight and overall this season on their travels they have produced a W10 D3 L4 record. The LIlywhites are on an eleven match scoring streak away from home and they have scored in each of their last 21 league games home and away combined. They will likely get a battle from the Seagulls and Spurs to win by a one-goal margin is at 11/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6:57 p.m. on April 15th, 2018). Naturally, Harry Kane heads up the anytime goalscorer market but Christian Eriksen continues to perform so well for them at longer value. They start midweek only four points out of second place so need to keep competing.
Brighton v Tottenham Head to Head
Tottenham were 2-0 home winners over Brighton earlier this season and that is back to back wins over the Seagulls by that scoreline for them in all competitions now. That was the first Premier League meeting between the two sides and only the fifteenth meeting overall. From those previous clashes, it is Spurs who are 9-3 ahead with three drawn matches. Spurs did lose their last visit to Brighton which was back in the old Division One in 1983.
Who will win – Brighton v Tottenham Predictions
Tottenham may not have been good enough to match Man City, but they are good enough to beat most sides in the league. Look for some kind of response to come from the Lilywhites, but maybe a win by only the one-goal margin.
