The Eagles have won three of their last five games and relegation concerns seem to be well behind them at the moment. They will be looking for more against Brighton on the weekend at Selhurst Park. The Seagulls snapped a long winless streak last week to ease some of their own rising relegation worries. Read our Crystal Palace v Brighton betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 4/5
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on March 6th, 2019 at 7:38 p.m.)
The Eagles secured a very good away win at Burnley last weekend which was their third win in five Premier League games (D1 L1). They have only lost one of their last six played, home and away, so things are going well at the moment. Their record at home this season isn’t great at just W3 D4 L7 though. They are W1 D1 L1 in their last three there. But as a positive for them in this one Crystal Palace have lost just one of six home games this season against other teams in the bottom half of the table.
The Eagles are at just the ten goals at home this season. 21% of games at Selhurst Park have ended under 2.5 goals. That having been said Palace have scored in each of their last four home fixtures in the EPL. 80% of their home goals conceded have been in the second half of matches. Bottom side Huddersfield are the only team who have a worse home record in the division than the Eagles have. Palace have scored the opening goal in 5 of their 14 home games only.
Brighton took a 3-1 home win over Crystal Palace earlier this season
The Eagles are unbeaten in four home games against Brighton (W2 D2)
Palace were 3-2 winners in last season’s corresponding fixture
Each of the last three meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Brighton were winless in seven league games before grinding out a 1-0 home win over bottom side Huddersfield last weekend. That was a big three points for the Seagulls to stop their slide. They are W1 D3 L5 in their last nine. That home success last weekend has done nothing to arrest their poor away form though. The Seagulls are winless in six top-flight away games, collecting just the one point in that sequence. They have tallied 13 away goals this season.
The away record of the Seagulls is W2 D2 L10. They have conceded quite heavily on their travels with 1.8 goals against them per game on average. They have conceded a total of ten goals in their last four away games alone. Brighton have managed to earn just one away clean sheet themselves this season. They are without one in any of their last nine on the road. Brighton have actually conceded at least two goals in each of their last five away games.
The Eagles are in good enough form to come up with three points here. The away form of Brighton just hasn’t been there and the Eagles can take them down. Home win in a low scoring game probably.

The drop in form that Brighton have had recently has started to raise some relegation concerns for them. They get a chance to put some big survival points on the board on the weekend as they play host to relegation-favourites Huddersfield. Read our Brighton v Huddersfield betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 27th, 2019 at 6:06 p.m.)
Brighton were going really strongly at home over the first part of the season. However, since the middle of December things have started going a little bit sour for them. Brighton are just W1 D2 L3 in their last six league home games. So they have started to get badly exposed and their overall drop in form has seen them slide back towards the relegation zone.
After a loss at Leicester on Tuesday, they have one point in six, home and away. But this really is an opportunity on home soil that they can’t afford to miss. Overall this season Brighton have a record of W5 D4 L4.
Three of the four losses which they have taken at the Amex Stadium have been against current top six sides. Two of their last three home losses have been against Liverpool and Chelsea. Brighton have averaged 1.2 goals per home game this season and less than half of their home fixtures have gone over 2.5 goals.
The Seagulls have a clean sheet in 31% of their home fixtures this term. Four of the five home victories which they have recorded have been by a one-goal margin only. 70% of all of their league points this season have been earned on home soil and they badly need a big boost of a win in this one.
Brighton earned a 2-1 away win at Huddersfield in December
From three previous EPL meetings, things are even with one win each and one draw
Brighton are undefeated in their last six home games against the Terriers
Both teams have scored in three of the last four meetings
A 1-0 home win over Wolves on Tuesday night gave Huddersfield their first win under new boss Jan Siewert and it snapped a long losing streak of form that they were on. Huddersfield had only claimed one point from their previous 14 games before that success over Wolves.
But they are heading back out on the road this weekend in search of what will be just their second league victory away from home this term. Incidentally, their only away win happened against Wolves.
In their last seven games out on their travels, Huddersfield have managed to claim just the one point. They have not scored in any of their last four away games either. In total, the Terriers have produced just eight away goals this season while they have conceded at over two goals per game on average away from home.
Just twice this season have the Terriers recorded an away clean sheet. The Terriers have conceded at least two goals in each of their last two away games and Fulham are the only side with a worse away record in the division than Huddersfield.
Brighton really need come up with something to steady the ship a little bit and we can see them having just enough to get over the finish line in this one. Probably it will be by nothing more than a one-goal margin though and they have a good shot at a clean sheet.

The Foxes sacked Claude Puel on the weekend after yet another setback. Leicester took a hammering at home against Crystal Palace which was the last straw for the board. Brighton remain in a bit of trouble near the relegation zone but should be rested after not playing on the weekend. Read our Leicester v Brighton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 24th, 2019 at 7:43 p.m.)
The poor form of Leicester continued on the weekend as they lost 4-1 at the King Power against Crystal Palace. That was their third defeat in a row and it has left them having collected just the one point from their last six league fixtures. They are actually W1 D1 L6 in their last eight EPL outings. Overall this season on home soil Leicester are W4 D2 L7 and their form on home soil lately has been poor all of the way.
Leicester are currently on a four-match losing streak at home and they have lost five of their last six at the King Power (L1). In total they have come up with the 14 goals in their 13 home games, so haven’t been an offensive threat. Home and away, Leicester have taken no clean sheets in their last six played. They have not taken one in any of their last six on home soil in the top flight. Less than half of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals.
Brighton and Leicester played out a 1-1 draw in November
The Foxes are unbeaten in their last three against the Seagulls
The three previous EPL meetings have all ended under 2.5 goals
Leicester’s last two wins over Brighton have been by a 2-0 scoreline
The Seagulls got the weekend off because they had been due to Chelsea, who were taking part in the EFL Cup final. So they got a break. It will have given them a bit of a chance to regroup because their form has fallen away. They have taken only the one point from their last five league games and they are winless in six. Brighton have managed to collect just the one victory in their last eleven league outings.
Their defence has been having a hard time as they have conceded at least two goals in four of their last six played. Overall this season their away form is W2 D2 L9. In attack, they have averaged less than a goal per game on their travels. They are without a clean sheet in any of their last eight on the road. They have actually conceded at least two goals in each of their last four road fixtures. The Seagulls have been trailing at the break in 7 of their 13 road games.
The Foxes clearly needed a shakeup. Because of not knowing what comes next for them the option of the draw in the outright market looks a good proposition. Brighton are rested but haven’t produced much away form.

Brighton will be looking to snap a five-match winless streak of league form when they play host to Burnley on the weekend. It’s an important game for the Seagulls too because a loss would see the Clarets move level on points with them. Burnley starts fourth from bottom. Read our Brighton v Burnley betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on February 5th, 2019 at 11:38 p.m.)
The Seagulls have been struggling to get themselves going since the beginning of December really. They have taken just the one win in their last ten played now in the Premier League. They are without a win five (D2 L3). Last weekend they picked up a 0-0 home draw against Watford, doing more than enough to win the game but they couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net. Brighton’s home form isn’t bad at W1 D2 L1 in their last four, the loss in that sequence too was a 1-0 reverse against Liverpool.
Only 42% of their home games this season have ended over 2.5 goals. Each of their last four at the Amex have finished under the goal line. The Seagulls have taken a clean sheet in 33% of their home games. They have two in their last three on home soil. Brighton’s overall home record is W5 D4 L3. They scored in each of their first ten home games of the term but have failed to strike in their last two there. All three of their home defeats incidentally have been against current top-four sides and all by a one-goal margin.
Burnley earned a 1-0 home win over Brighton in December
There has been one goal in total in the last three meetings
Five of the last six meetings have ended in a draw
Just one of their last eight games between them have ended over 2.5 goals
Burnley are on a six-match undefeated streak of form (W3 D3) and they have drawn each of their last three (against Watford, Man Utd and Southampton). Their overall away form is just W2 D4 L7 this season though. But they have improved to an unbeaten three-match streak on their travels (W1 D2). So the improvement has clearly been there and they have looked spirited and up for the fight lately. Burnley have only produced the 11 goals across their thirteen league away games this season, so they have been a bit short there.
The Clarets have conceded at an average of 1.85 goals per road game, having earned only the three clean sheets (all 0-0 draws incidentally). 54% of their away games have ended over 2.5 goals. Burnley’s half time away record is well worth a look as there is a big trend there. It is W0 D9 L4. They have conceded 67% of their away goals in the second half of fixtures and have scored 64% of their away goals after the halftime break. Fulham are the only side to have conceded more league goals than they have done this season.
Brighton actually did well at home against Watford last weekend but came up against an inspired performance by keeper Ben Foster. They may be able to force it home against Burnley though as the Seagulls are tough to beat at home. Home win.

Brighton v Watford Premier League Preview, 2nd February 3.00pm
Watford looked as if they were going to get three points out of a trip to Tottenham on Wednesday evening. However, it fell apart for them inside final 10 mins as they ended up suffering a loss. Speaking of losses Brighton suffered their third in a row as they were torn apart by the relegation-threatened Fulham on Tuesday. Read our Brighton v Watford betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on January 29th, 2019 at 4:59 p.m.)
Brighton found themselves 2-0 ahead at half-time away at Fulham in midweek. Come the end of the game they had been beaten heavily 4-2. That leaves the Seagulls on a three-match losing streak in the Premier League. It leaves them with just the one victory in their last nine league games, Brighton losing six of those. So they are struggling for form at the moment. Overall this season on home soil, Brighton have posted a W5 D3 L3 record. Each of their last three there have ended under 2.5 goals.
Brighton have come up with 15 goals across their home fixtures this season in the league, while they have taken a clean sheet in 27% of them. To their credit, they have only been trailing at the halftime break in three of their 11 home games this season. Four of the five home victories which they have recorded have all been by a one-goal margin. As a positive Brighton have scored in all but one of their home league games this season. They go into this match certainly needing a huge boost of three points to try and steady the ship.
Watford earned a 2-0 home win over Brighton back in the middle of August
Brighton have taken one win in their last nine games against Watford
Both teams have scored in just one of the last six meetings
Only one of the last nine games between them have managed to get above 2.5 goals
It was so near yet so far for Watford on Wednesday evening as they couldn’t hold onto their one-goal lead at Tottenham. Watford ended up losing the game 2-1 late on. That ended a four-match undefeated streak of form that Watford were on in the top flight. But still, that was just their second defeat in their last eight games, the other one in that sequence being against the current top five side Chelsea.
Away from home this season Watford have posted an even W4 D4 L4 record. They can take some heart from having won two of their last four road games as well (D1 L1). Watford have scored at least two goals in four of their last five on the road. The Hornets are on a five-match scoring streak on their travels in the top flight. In total they have managed 17 away goals this season, conceding 16.
42% of their away games have ended over 2.5 goals. Clean sheets in general for them this season away from home have been a struggle. Watford have just the three but two of them have been in their last three road games. Watford have opened the scoring in half of their away fixtures. Wherever you can look for them all of their stats just come out around average. For example, the half-time away record is W4 D4 L4 as well away from home this season. Watford’s last three away games have all gone over 2.5 goals
It seems like a decent opportunity to have a punt on a draw in the match outright. Brighton have done pretty well on home soil, but they will be smarting after the way they lost in midweek. Watford are a team who can blow a bit hot and cold away from home. Draw.

The Cottagers are now in heaps of trouble down in the relegation zone. Last time out in the League they were denied a point as they conceded a late goal at home against Tottenham. That was their third defeat in a row. Fulham have won just one of the last 10 League fixtures now, losing six in that sequence. The overall home record of Fulham is W3 D3 L5 this season and in those fixtures, they have tallied 13 goals. They have struggled defensively having conceded an average of 1.9 goals per game against at Craven cottage.
There has been only the one home clean sheet by Fulham this season and 45% of their home games have gone over 2.5 goals. One small positive is that they are on a three-match scoring streak at home in the top flight and of the goals that they have produced a home, 62% have been in the first half of games. Fulham have actually opened the scoring in five of their 11 home fixtures. With 51 goals against them this season in the top flight, Fulham have the worst defensive record of all teams.

Brighton are undefeated in their last six games against Fulham, winning four of those
Fulham have lost their last three home games against Brighton
Six of their last seven meetings have ended over 2.5 goals
Brighton’s current form doesn’t read great but they have been through a couple of tough fixtures. They have lost back-to-back games but those were against Liverpool and Manchester United. The Seagulls have only taken one win in their last eight Premier League outings though, losing five of those. So there are just go through a rough patch at the moment. Overall this season away from home Brighton have taken just the two victories in a W2 D2 L8 record. Only the current bottom three have worse away records than that of Brighton’s.
Brighton have struggled in front of goal away from home having only scored 10 in total. They have conceded 20 goals in their 12 away games. Brighton have collected just one point from their last four out on the road, and have won just one of their last seven away fixtures. 50% of away games that Brighton had been involved in have ended over 2.5 goals. Brighton have earned one clean sheet away from home all season and haven’t taken one in any of their last seven on the road. Brighton have actually conceded a least two goals in each of their last three away games.
Things just are not happening for Fulham not matter what they try, and they may struggle to get the win on the board in this one. Brighton have been poor on the road but they should be a able to earn a valuable point in this one at Craven Cottage. Draw
