Stadium: Turf Moor
TV: Sky Sports Arena
Burnley and Brighton have a history of evenly-matched contests, with six of their last eight Premier League encounters ending in stalemate.
The Clarets come into this meeting on a seven-match unbeaten run, while Albion have gone six away games without tasting defeat, so another close encounter is on the cards.
We’re taking 12/5 for a draw at Turf Moor as our initial Burnley vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley have only lost to Manchester City in their last 15 top-flight fixtures and made it four wins in seven outings when prevailing 2-0 at Norwich.
The Clarets were aided by the Canaries having two players sent off and scoring a late own-goal, but Sean Dyche was delighted to equal their previous best points tally with a game to go.
Dyche said: “We get on with things. We have a lot of respect in our group and if people respect us outside then great, if they don’t, they don’t.
“We’re happy just continuing to play hard to try and get points on the board and keep developing the players.
“They’re doing a great job themselves at the moment with the way they’re going about it.
“People sometimes question us, they sometimes praise us, and we see beyond all that and get on with whatever comes our way.”
Jay Rodriguez drew a blank at Carrow Road but does have three goals in Burnley’s last four games against the bottom six.
That makes him worth supporting at 7/2 to score first here in our Burnley vs Brighton betting tips.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Tarkowski, Pieters, Bardsley, Long, Gudmundsson, Brownhill, McNeil, Westwood, Wood, Rodriguez.
A Look At Brighton’s Betting Odds
Brighton made sure of their safety when grinding out a goalless stalemate with Newcastle at Amex Stadium on Monday.
Since returning to action, the Seagulls have lost to both Manchester clubs and Liverpool, but registered two wins and three draws from five other fixtures.
“You spend lockdown two points above the relegation zone, you can feel the pressure, the responsibility, the implications of coming out of the Premier League,” said Graham Potter.
“It was a really psychologically challenging period, but the way that everybody has pulled together and worked has been really, really encouraging.”
The stats point firmly towards this being a low-scoring affair and Albion will come up against Burnley keeper Nick Pope in determined mood, as he chases the Golden Glove award for most clean sheets.
Under 2.5 goals will be popular at 83/100 in the Burnley vs Brighton odds, but for better value, we’ll go with 4/1 for a draw at half-time and full-time.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Lamptey, Dunk, Webster, Burn, Stephens, Bissouma, Trossard, Gross, Mooy, Maupay.
