Southampton News and Form
The Saints will have been mightily relieved to have picked up their first win of the season which came in a 2-0 success out at Crystal Palace just before the international break. That moved them on to four points from their four games for the season. Their two home performances have yielded just the one point which was in a 0-0 draw against Burnley right at the start of the season. Southampton are not a side in great home form at all as they have failed to win 12 of their last 13 home games in the Premier League now. Because we see the win over Palace doing the Saints a power of good though, Southampton to win by a 1 goal margin is at 13/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.)
Boss Mark Hughes pretty much has a full squad to choose from and whichever way this swings we can only see it going under 2.5 goals and that is an 8/13 odds option at bet365* (Betting Odds were taken on September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.). Each of the last three between these two have gone under the line. It is still hard to see how Southampton are actually going to get a lot of goals on the board this season. Danny Ings has two of their three league goals this term. All four of their goals this season have come in the second half of matches so the half time draw should have big appeal.
Brighton News and Form’
Brighton have put four points on the board in the Premier League this season but all of those points were delivered on home soil with a win over Manchester United and then a draw against Fulham just before the international break. So they have found some nice form and scoring at the Amex but the story on the road is totally different for them. They are without a point and without a single goal away from home. Both teams to NOT score is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on September 13th, 2018 at 8:16 p.m.). Both of Brighton’s away games this season have ended up that way.
Brighton are without a win in any of their last fifteen away games in the Premier League now and we spot a trend in their games. They have been losing at half time and at full time in each of their last four road games in the top flight. A Southampton/Southampton half time/full time bet is at 5/2 odds and is one of our top Southampton v Brighton betting tips. Their defence has been a concern as they have conceded exactly two goals in three of their four games played this term.
Southampton v Brighton Head to Head
The two south coast rivals have met already this season with the Saints taking a 1-0 EFL Cup win at Brighton. There were 1-1 draws in both league meetings between them last season and those were the first games between them since the 2011/12 Champions League. Both teams have scored in just three of the last seven classes. Southampton are unbeaten in three on home soil against the Seagulls (W1 D2).
Who will win – Southampton v Brighton Predictions
Brighton have done well this season to collect the points they have done, but those were on home soil. We have to roll with the Saints collecting a narrow win in this one. So for our Southampton v Brighton betting tips, we are going with a Southampton to win by a one-goal margin effort.
