Brighton v Burnley Betting Tips and Preview
Brighton v Burnley – Sat 9th Feb, 17:30, Amex Stadium
Referee: Stuart Attwell
Burnley are looking to extend their six-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League, but they will not find it easy at the Amex. The Seagulls have only lost three matches at home this season against Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea.
Simply put, they are a tough team to beat at home. Chris Hughton is known for his defensive, hard to breakdown style and there are very rarely high scoring games with Brighton involved. In fact, the Seagulls have seen under 1.5 goals in five of their PL games at the Amex, including the last three in a row.
Burnley will be confident going into this match, but they have drawn their last three games while seeing both teams score in four of their last five matches. A drawing trend is seen when these two teams meet, with five draws in their last six league meetings.
In fact, there has only been one goal in their last three meetings, with two 0-0 scorelines. Why on earth is this match on TV?! Hopefully, it will break away from its boring, goalless trend of the past, but there is little to suggest it will.
Brighton may have a little bit of fatigue play into this match after they needed extra time to beat West Brom in their FA Cup replay. But, it should be plenty of time to see no real consequences from that victory.
Firstly, Brighton are 23/20 to win, the draw is 12/5 and a Burnley win is 16/5.
To be honest, I see the best value in the draw at 12/5 with bet365. Brighton are a difficult team to beat at the Amex, but they haven’t won a game since early December. Meanwhile, Burnley are on a six-game unbeaten streak, with three draws in their last games.
On that note, I could even see this being a 0-0 or a team nicks this 1-0. So, under 1.5 goals is best priced at 9/5 888sport.
