Seagulls To Soar In South Coast Derby Against Saints

There is a derby on the South Coast to enjoy on Sunday lunchtime as Brighton come up against their near-neighbours Southampton in an intriguing Premier League clash and we are backing the Seagulls to soar at the Amex Stadium...

  • This will be the first Brighton v Southampton meeting since the Seagulls won 3-0 in the Championship in January 2012
  • Brighton are unbeaten in three at home - Won Two, Drawn One

Tips Brighton win draw no bet    Best Bet @ 11 / 8  

The Story So Far

Chris Hughton's men will be cock-a-hoop after stunning West Ham with a 3-0 win at the Olympic Stadium last week and they are making a decent fist of life in the top-flight, winning three of their nine matches since gaining promotion (drawn two, lost four).

The Seagulls have looked solid on home soil as they are unbeaten in three at the Amex since losing to Manchester City on the opening day, beating West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle already.

Winning home games against the teams that are likely to be around you in the table will be crucial when the season reaches the business end of proceedings.

It is therefore a surprise to see that Brighton are 5/2 underdogs in the betting for Sunday's match and we fancy them to get something out of this match.

The Brighton win with 'draw no bet' can be backed at 11/8 (Bet Victor) and that is the way to go for us as they prepare to face an unconvincing Saints.
Match Odds:

Lack Of Goals

Southampton have also won three this season (drawn three, lost three) but they have had the advantage of playing six games at home already and they were very fortunate to beat West Brom 1-0 in a game that must be a contender for the 'worst game of all time' last weekend. It is a surprise to see that they are as short as 11/8 for the win on Sunday.

Mauricio Pellegrino is struggling to shake Saints out of the torpor that enveloped them during Claude Puel's reign and it is telling that their nine games this term have produced a grand total of seventeen goals.

Indeed, six of their nine have gone under 2.5 goals and six have seen at least one team fail to score.

With that in mind, odds-on backers will be interested to see that betting 'no' in the both teams to score bracket is 4/5 (Betfred) to land for a seventh time in ten Brighton matches, while under 2.5 goals is 8/15 (Bet 365) to also pay out for a seventh time in a Seagulls' game this season.
