Brighton And Bournemouth To Start The New Year With A Low Scoring Affair

  • Bournemouth are unbeaten in eight meetings with Brighton - Won Four, Drawn Four

Tips Both teams to score - No    Best Bet @ 4 / 5  

Home And Away

Both sides are likely to be in a relegation battle come the business end of the season and their lack of fire-power going forward ensures that goals could be at a premium in a game that is being shown live on Sky Sports.

Brighton have been rock solid at home as only Manchester City and Liverpool have won at the Amex this term but whether the Seagulls are worth backing at 6/5 (Bet 365) is open to debate. The hosts simply don't score enough goals - 10 in 10 games at home so far - and they have a poor record in this Brighton v Bournemouth fixture.

Bournemouth are unbeaten in the past eight, including a 2-1 league win and a 1-0 win after extra-time in the League Cup earlier this season, albeit both of those matches were played at the Vitality Stadium.

Eddie Howe's men have struggled on the road, losing six of ten (won two, drawn two) this season, and they have managed to score a paltry six goals away from home. It is difficult to make a case for the injury-hit Cherries at 12/5, while the draw is available at 11/5.
Match Odds:

Lack Of Goals

Bournemouth have failed to score in six of their ten away games so far and ticking 'no' in the both teams to score bracket looks like a very solid option at 4/5 (Bet Victor), particularly when you consider their respective struggles in front of goal.

Under 2.5 goals is 8/15 to pay out for an eighth time in eleven home games for Brighton, while under 1.5 goals could provide interest at 7/4 (Betfair) as there is unlikely to be too much to choose between these goal-shy teams.
