What Trueform says for Brighton vs Burnley
Brighton are four places and three points above Burnley in the Premier League table but that gap has closed up since the Festive period.
The Clarets travel to the south coast unbeaten in their last six top-flight fixtures, following up a hat-trick of wins with a trio of draws.
Head-to-head clashes between these teams over the past 18 months have been incredibly tight, so 11/5 for a stalemate makes sense for our first Brighton vs Burnley prediction.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton were denied a welcome win by an inspired performance from Watford goalkeeper Ben Foster in Saturday’s goalless draw at this venue.
The former England shot-stopper twice denied headers from Albion forward Jurgen Locadia, as well as keeping out efforts from Shane Duffy and Florin Andone.
“It’s a game we should have won, a game we deserved to win,” said Chris Hughton. “But we came up against a goalkeeper that made three very, very good saves.”
However, that did make it five league games without a victory for the Seagulls, who will be keen to avoid being dragged into a relegation dogfight by losing here.
Looking at the Brighton vs Burnley odds, we reckon 13/4 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time is good value.
Last Brighton EPL line-up: Ryan, Bong, Duffy, Dunk, Montoya, Bissouma, Gross, March, Propper, Locadia, Murray.
Midfielder Dale Stephens (hip) will be assessed ahead of the game. Jose Izquierdo, who has not featured since December 4, has returned to training following a knee problem but is unlikely to be involved.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley showed a never-say-die attitude when securing a share of the spoils with Southampton at Turf Moor thanks to a stoppage-time penalty from Ashley Barnes.
That was the first top-flight spot-kick awarded to the Clarets since April 2017, although Sean Dyche was still incensed that another appeal was turned down earlier in the game.
One big plus point from that stalemate was the disruption caused by late substitute Peter Crouch on his debut for the club, with Saints defender Jack Stephens handling in the area under pressure from the ex-England striker.
“The big man was brilliant,” Barnes said on Burnley’s official website. “You could see when he came on how many chances we got and he’s won the penalty for us.
“He attracts a lot of the defenders away, which gives you more space to get a few more chances.”
Barnes added: “Everyone knows, and the fans know, we don’t stop until the end and we give it our all and fight until the end – and that’s what we’ve done.
“But we’ve still got a long way to go until the end of the season and we need to keep picking up as many points as possible.”
That admirable attitude can help the Clarets to grind out a goalless stalemate here at 5/1 to finish off our Brighton vs Burnley betting tips.
It was 0-0 in both matches between these teams last term, while the only score at Turf Moor in December came when Jack Cork’s shot fortuitously deflected in off the chest of James Tarkowski.
Last Burnley line-up: Heaton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Hendrick, Westwood, Barnes, Wood, McNeil.
Steven Defour is likely to miss out once again for Burnley due to a calf complaint. Matt Lowton will have a late fitness test after recovering from a cracked toe bone.
