Crystal Palace v Brighton Prediction & Betting Tips, 14th April 201811th April 2018 / lee
Crystal Palace v Brighton Premier League Preview, 14th April 3.00pm
Palace collected a point last weekend at Bournemouth which leaves them three points only above the drop zone. They threw away maximum points in the last minute as well, so how much will that come back to haunt them? Brighton are four points better off than the Eagles are and got a point of their own against Huddersfield last weekend. This looks like a tricky away game for them though.
Crystal Palace v Brighton Betting Odds*
Crystal Palace 5/6, Draw 23/10, Brighton 10/3* (Betting Odds taken at 11:22 p.m. on April 9th, 2018)
Crystal Palace News and Form
The Eagles have taken only the four points from their last seven league games, but they have all come in their last three fixtures. They so nearly got three points at Bournemouth last weekend but conceded an equaliser in the 89th minute. That was a big blow. They head back to Selhurst Park this weekend looking to snap a three-match losing streak and a winless four-match streak there. Granted they have hosted Spurs, Man Utd and Liverpool in their last three home fixture. The Eagles do at least go out and show a lot of fight and most of their games are pretty close. They have only taken a clean sheet in 12% of their home games this season though and they are without one in any of their last four. But they are facing a Brighton side who aren’t loaded with goals and Palace to win to nil at Paddy Power is at 15/8 odds * (Betting Odds taken at 11:22 p.m. on April 9th, 2018). Every point matters now for Palace and Luka Milivojevic is playing a big part for them having scored in each of Palace’s last three games.
Brighton News and Form
If Brighton loses this they would see Palace move to within a point of them and that would make them sweat a bit. The Seagulls are winless in three league games now (D1 L2) and they collected a point at home against Huddersfield last weekend. Away from home, they have only won twice this season and they are without one in any of their last nine on the road. Brighton have not kept a clean sheet in any of their last eleven Premier League games so there should be chances here for Palace. In the Paddy Power correct score market a Crystal Palace 1-0 is at 5/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 11:22 p.m. on April 9th, 2018) which looks a reasonable proposition. Brighton, after all, have scored in just two of their last nine away from the Amex. They only totaled the seven away goals all season and each of their last ten away from home have ended under 2.5 goals, so that is another big trend to look for in this one. Just 13% of their away fixtures this season have produced at least three goals. So expect a tight game.
Crystal Palace v Brighton Head to Head
This will be the third meeting between the two of them this season. There was a 0-0 league draw between them at the Amex, while Brighton took a 2-1 victory there in the FA Cup meeting in January. Those were the first games between them since the 2012/13 Championship season when Palace beat Brighton in the promotion play-offs. Both teams have scored in just one of the last six meetings with things even between them in that sequence of matches with two wins each and four draws.
Who will win – Crystal Palace v Brighton Predictions
Palace really should have won at Bournemouth last weekend, but at least they showed adventure and fight and got their goals. Brighton have just gone off the boil a little bit again and this isn’t an easy away game under the circumstances. Palace should be able to take them down.
