What Trueform says for Crystal Palace vs Brighton
Crystal Palace have put in some impressive performances of late and may just have the attacking flair to beat Brighton at Selhurst Park.
It is always a hard-fought affair when these fierce rivals come together, but we reckon the Eagles are in better shape at the moment.
Punters can get 4/5 for a home win and that is our opening Crystal Palace vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace made it five wins in their last eight Premier League and FA Cup matches when powering to a 3-1 victory at Burnley.
Wilfried Zaha was again the catalyst for success at Turf Moor, playing a part in an own goal by Phil Bardsley before finishing off the scoring himself.
It was a fifth strike in as many games for Zaha, after previously going 18 matches without one, and he was a thorn in Burnley’s side throughout.
Roy Hodgson beamed: “Wilf was good. He’s always good. He’s in good form at the moment.
“He’s a dangerous player to have to mark if you’re a defender, because he’s an extremely good dribbler and he’s got strength to add to that.”
Michy Batshuayi was also on target for the second time in three games and he has really made a positive impact since joining on loan from Chelsea.
Looking at the Crystal Palace vs Brighton odds, we like 2/1 for the Eagles to win and over 2.5 goals in the match.
Last Palace line-up: Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Dann, Schlupp, Wan-Bissaka, Milivojevic, Meyer, Kouyate, Zaha, Batshuayi.
Goalkeepers Wayne Hennessey and Vicente Guaita are vying to start for Palace, but otherwise Hodgson has a largely settled team.
Mamadou Sakho (knee) and Pape Souare (shoulder) are the only senior absentees.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton enjoyed a welcome top-flight triumph when edging out basement dwellers Huddersfield 1-0 at Amex Stadium to pull five points clear of the drop zone.
Substitute Florin Andone’s 79th-minute header helped the Seagulls end a seven-game winless run in the Premier League.
Lewis Dunk told the club website: “There were going to be a few nerves – the pressure on us is massive.
“Every game is a must-win and we have to fight under that pressure.
“We had targets at the start of the season, but I think now it’s survival mode.
“If we play like we did in the second half, then I think we’ll be fine at the end of the season.”
However, Albion have only picked up one point from their last six road trips in this competition, even though they have scored in four straight top-flight away fixtures.
That all makes 16/5 for a home victory and both teams to score worth adding to our Crystal Palace vs Brighton betting tips.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Montoya, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo, Bissouma, Stephen, Propper, Knockaert, Murray, Jahanbakhsh.
Brighton will again be without midfielder Pascal Gross, due to a hamstring injury, but Chris Hughton reported no fresh concerns.
