Odds: Brighton 9/25, Draw 7/2, Coventry 31/4
Kick Off: 1500, 17/02/2018
Stadium: Amex Stadium
Brighton should have few problems maintaining their unbeaten run when a faltering Coventry side travel to the south coast in the FA Cup fifth round.
Coventry shocked Premier League Stoke in the third round, but that result came on home soil and since then their League Two promotion bid has faltered with successive defeats to Forest Green, Accrington and Colchester.
The Seagulls have scored in the first half of their last three games and, with the Sky Blues having fallen behind before the break in both aforementioned losses, the hosts to lead at half-time and full-time at 21/20 is the pick of our Brighton vs Coventry betting predictions.
A Look At Brighton & Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Chris Hughton has rotated his squad for FA Cup matches this term, but with the likes of Tim Krul, Beram Kayal and Tomer Hemed coming into the team, the Seagulls are still sending out a side packed with international experience.
While Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough were only eliminated by narrow margins in the previous rounds, Brighton will expect to make lighter work of a side more than 60 places below them in the Football League pyramid.
Record signing Jurgen Locadia could be fit enough to make his Seagulls debut, and if the Dutchman can transfer his prolific Eredivisie form to these shores, there could be plenty of goals at the Amex.
A price of 40/1 for Brighton to win 4-1 makes plenty of appeal.
A Look At Coventry City’s Betting Odds
While Coventry’s form has seen them slip out of the League Two play-off places, top scorer Marc McNulty poses a significant threat.
The Scot has struck 12 times in his last 16 outings and Brighton have only managed one clean sheet in 2018.
With Coventry capable of getting on the scoresheet, there is plenty to like about the odds of 6/5 on offer for Brighton to win and over 2.5 combined goals scored in the game.
Stoke 1-1 BRIGHTON – Jose Izquierdo
