Brighton have made a blistering start to the season and will go top of the Premier League table if getting the better of arch-rivals Crystal Palace.
This fixture has been full of entertainment and late goals in recent seasons and we could be set for more Monday night drama.
We fancy the visitors to take home the three points and claim the bragging rights at 8/5 as our opening Crystal Palace vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Having secured a first victory of the season when downing Tottenham, Patrick Vieira’s Palace got a firm dose of reality when making the trip to Liverpool last Saturday.
The 3-0 defeat was the second time they have shipped a trio of goals this season and the Palace defence could be in for another difficult evening as they welcome the in-form Seagulls.
However, form does somewhat go out of the window for these grudge contests and the Eagles have just about shaded the most recent meetings between the two.
This may be Vieira’s first taste of this clash, but he knows all about big games and his squad have plenty of experience in this fixture.
Wilfried Zaha has scored in the last two contests between this pair at Selhurst Park and we like 23/10 for the Ivory Coast international to net at any time again from the Crystal Palace vs Brighton odds.
Last Palace EPL line-up: Guaita, Ward, Mitchell, Guehi, Andersen, Kouyate, McArthur, Gallagher, Ayew, Zaha, Benteke.
A Look At Brighton’s Betting Odds
VAR came to Brighton’s assistance last weekend, as the Seagulls recorded a fourth Premier League victory out of five by beating Leicester 2-1.
Neal Maupay struck from the spot and Danny Welbeck doubled Albion’s lead before Jamie Vardy pulled one back.
The Foxes then had two equalisers ruled out in the final stages, with Harvey Barnes judged to be offside and obstructing the goalkeeper on both occasions.
Those video reviews helped us land a clean sweep of successful selections in our match preview at 7/4, 5/1 and 19/2.
Graham Potter’s side are the surprise package of the top flight this term, but it will come as little shock to those who have observed Brighton since the 46-year-old took over at the Amex.
The main difference this season is that ‘Potter’s Pinstripes’ are putting the ball in the net, rather than squandering a multitude of chances.
The manager will be delighted by the early form of Maupay, who could continue to make hay while confidence is high.
Albion have scored two goals in three of their four wins to date and we expect them to add to their tally in Monday’s match-up.
It is 16/5 for the Seagulls to keep the trend of exactly two strikes going and that rounds off our Crystal Palace vs Brighton betting tips.
Last Brighton EPL line-up: Sanchez, Dunk, Duffy, Veltman, Cucurella, Bissouma, Lallana, March, Maupay, Trossard, Welbeck.
