Huddersfield v Brighton – Match Preview and Betting Tips
Huddersfield v Brighton – Sat 1st Dec, 15:00, John Smith’s Stadium
Referee: Michael Oliver
Six of the last ten meetings between these two have produced draws, can either side get a win this Saturday? Well, the Terriers have hit a bit of form after winning two of their last three matches and drawing one.
Conversely, Brighton have lost two of their last three games while drawing one. The Seagulls have not got the best record on the road, with just one win in their last 20 Premier League away matches.
They have lost three of their last five on the road, won one and drawn one. But, they have managed to get a goal in four of their last five matches on the road while only failing to score at the Etihad. Glen Murray is the clear danger man for Brighton and has scored 40% of their Premier League goals.
Huddersfield have struggled at home this season, with just one win, two draws and four losses. Although, three of those losses came against top teams in the likes of Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea.
They managed to win against Fulham, but only scored one goal against the worst defence in the league. I can see this being a tight and cagey match with very few goals.
Huddersfield are best priced at 6/4 for the win with Betfair, the draw is 39/19 with 10Bet and a Brighton win is 5/2 with BetVictor. I personally would avoid this game, but I can see value in another draw at 39/19 with 10Bet.
My banker for this match is under 2.5 goals which is best priced at 4/9 with bet365. The Terriers have scored a measly eight goals all season while Brighton hasn’t scored more than once in any of their last eight Premier League matches.
Under 2.5 goals has landed in six of the last seven home matches for Huddersfield, but Brighton have seen over 2.5 goals in three of their last five away matches. Still, I cannot see either team banging in goals this Saturday.
