What Trueform says for Brighton vs Crystal Palace
Brighton and Crystal Palace both enjoyed encouraging Premier League wins over the weekend and look pretty closely matched on our overall Trueform chart.
Albion have only lost to Tottenham in six top-flight home matches, but the Eagles do not have a bad away record, picking up two road wins and a draw at Manchester United.
These fierce rivals shared the spoils in this M23 derby at Amex Stadium last season and 37/20 for another stalemate is our initial Brighton vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton followed up a 1-1 home draw with Leicester by coming from behind to beat Huddersfield 2-1 in Yorkshire, although they were favoured by some key refereeing decisions.
Town were leading 1-0 through Mathias Jorgensen’s first-minute header when Steve Mounie was shown a controversial straight red card just after the half-an-hour mark.
Shane Duffy and Florin Andone then struck for the Seagulls, who were fortunate not to concede a penalty when Alex Pritchard appeared to be wrestled to the ground.
Brighton midfielder Solly March, who provided assists for both his side’s goals with excellent crosses, insisted: “We would have been confident if it had stayed 11 v 11, I think we would have got back into the game.”
Lewis Dunk preferred to focus on Romania striker Andone, who marked his full debut with a 69th-minute winner.
“I thought he was excellent,” the defender said. “He gave us a different dimension. We had to stretch them and make the pitch as big as possible and he did a great job.
“He never stopped running and got the goal, so credit to him. It was a great run across to the front post and a great header, so I’m really buzzing for him.”
Albion have netted in every Premier League home match this term, so 17/5 for a score draw is another tempting option from the Brighton vs Crystal Palace odds.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Bruno, Duffy, Dunk, Bernardo, Bissouma, Gross, March, Propper, Andone, Izquierdo.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace earned their first home win of the season with a 2-0 victory over Burnley, with James McArthur and Andros Townsend doing the damage.
The Eagles dominated from start to finish with a commanding display and could easily have prevailed by a more convincing margin.
Roy Hodgson commented: “This was an important game that we needed to win, even if it was by hook or by crook.
“But, as it turned out, we didn’t get the three points that way, but because we were clearly the better side.”
Palace do have the potential to climb quickly up the table, but perhaps we shouldn’t get too carried away by one triumph following an eight-match winless run.
Hodgson would almost certainly settle for another point at Amex Stadium and 5/1 for a 1-1 scoreline completes our Brighton vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Hennessey, Van Aanholt, Tomkins, Sakho, Wan-Bissaka, Milivojevic, Meyer, Kouyate, Townsend, McArthur, Zaha.
Huddersfield 1-2 BRIGHTON – Shane Duffy, Florin Andone
CRYSTAL PALACE 2-0 Burnley – James McArthur, Andros Townsend
