Brighton & Hove Albion Odds and News

Brighton ended a 34-year absence from the Premier League by finishing second in the EFL Championship in the 2016-17 season and has stayed in the top flight since. The bottom three teams in the Premier League are relegated and Brighton currently sits 15th with 33 points, six up on the 18th-place team.

The Seagulls are unbeaten in their two matches since the restart. They beat visiting Arsenal 2-1 on June 20 and then drew 0-0 at Leicester City last Tuesday. Brighton, which kept its seventh clean sheet of the EPL season, had a penalty shot in the first half, but Neal Maupay was denied by goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. Maupay leads the team with nine goals in league action.

Brighton manager Graham Potter started the franchise’s youngest ever starting lineup in a Premier League game; there were five players under the age of 23 in the first 11. For example, 19-year-old defender Tariq Lamptey got his first career start with the club. However, he suffered a head injury in the match and is in question for this one. So is Adam Webster (hamstring).

Maupay is the favored anytime scorer for this match on Brighton at +265, followed by Glenn Murry at +300. The Seagulls are +190 to score first.
