What Trueform says for Burnley vs Brighton
Brighton travel to Burnley on a high following back-to-back Premier League wins which pushed them into the top half of the table.
The Clarets are second from bottom, 12 points adrift of Albion, after a trio of defeats, including a couple of losses at Turf Moor.
Sean Dyche’s side have picked up only one point in seven games, so 33/20 for an away win is tempting enough to be our first Burnley vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
To be fair, Burnley did show some battling qualities when going down 3-1 to Liverpool here on Wednesday, with Jurgen Klopp criticising the ferocity of several challenges.
Jack Cork gave the Clarets the lead early in the second half, but the Reds hit back with goals from James Milner, Roberto Firmino and Xherdan Shaqiri.
Dyche was happy with what he saw from his side, which he thinks was an improvement on recent weeks, and had no qualms about the approach they took.
“I thought there were some excellent challenges,” he declared. “I thought some of the timing of the challenges were superb. That’s part of that front-foot mentality.
“You’ve got to win the ball, you’ve got to challenge against these boys. You’ve got to put a marker on the game – not only with good tackles, but also with good play.
“I thought we were effective. We mixed it. Not effective enough, don’t get me wrong. But we’ve got to get back to being ‘us’.”
Burnley produced enough energy and endeavour to suggest they will be competitive against Brighton, but the visitors are still playing better football at the moment.
That makes 5/1 for an away win and both teams to score stand out from the Burnley vs Brighton odds.
Last Burnley line-up: Hart, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Bardsley, Cork, Gudmundsson, Brady, Westwood, Barnes, Wood.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton followed up a win at Huddersfield by beating Crystal Palace 3-1 on home turf, despite going down to 10 men inside half an hour.
The Seagulls led through a Glenn Murray penalty when Shane Duffy was dismissed, but still managed to power 3-0 ahead at the break, with Leon Balogun and Florin Andone netting.
“We are scoring goals at the moment and playing well – that’s big for us as well because we are still relatively new to the division, so we obviously want that to continue,” Chris Hughton said.
Albion have suffered from travel sickness in the past, but they did also win on the road at Newcastle during a run of three straight top-flight triumphs in October.
We think they can complete another hat-trick of victories in Lancashire and are adding 2/1 for Andone to score at anytime again to our Burnley vs Brighton betting tips.
The Belgian, a £5.3million signing from Deportivo La Coruna, bagged a fine individual goal against Palace after breaking his duck for the club at Huddersfield.
Andone should get another chance to shine after coming off the bench to replace the injured Murray, while Jose Izquierdo also picked up a knock.
“We are really pleased for him, because he’s put a lot of work in,” added Hughton. “We have good competition there now.”
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Duffy, Dunk, Montoya, Bernardo, Bissouma, Gross, March, Propper, Murray, Izquierdo.
