What Trueform says for Fulham vs Brighton
Fulham are deep in relegation trouble following three straight Premier League defeats and Brighton are rated a value bet to add to their woes at Craven Cottage.
Albion are 12 points above the second-from-bottom Cottagers and have shown improved away form this season, including wins at Newcastle and Huddersfield.
Chris Hughton’s side also drew at Southampton and West Ham and this is another good chance to shine on the road.
Punters can get 23/10 for the Seagulls and that is too tempting to turn down for our initial Fulham vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Fulham’s Betting Odds
Fulham failed to capitalise on being gifted the lead by a Fernando Llorente own-goal when entertaining a depleted Tottenham team last time out.
Sloppy defending allowed Dele Alli to level things up and Harry Winks then headed in a heart-breaking stoppage-time decider.
Claudio Ranieri praised his side for a “fantastic” first half, but added: “We lack experience. Calm, stay calm, keep possession, finish the match.”
Ryan Babel did make an encouraging debut for the Cottagers, who have scored exactly one goal in each of their last six matches.
However, an off-field issue involving Aboubakar Kamara has cast another shadow over the club’s current plight.
Looking at the Fulham vs Brighton odds, we like 6/1 for an away win and both teams to score.
Last Fulham line-up: Rico, Odoi, Chambers, Ream, Le Marchand, Christie, Bryan, Babel, Schurrle, Jean Seri, Mitrovic.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton had to endure a frustrating goalless draw in Saturday’s FA Cup clash with West Brom on home turf.
The Seagulls had 24 attempts on goal but were unable to break down their dogged Championship opponents.
“On the balance of play, I felt we were the better side, but we couldn’t find that way through,” commented Hughton.
“We didn’t do enough to win the game, we didn’t test the goalkeeper enough.”
However, Hughton did make six changes for that tie and the main priority clearly remains Premier League survival, even though Albion have built up a decent cushion between them and the drop zone.
In the top flight, Brighton were competitive in narrow losses to Liverpool and Manchester United, having previously drawn with Arsenal and West Ham either side of beating Everton.
That form is solid enough to appeal here and the Seagulls should not fear visiting this venue, having prevailed on three straight visits when these teams met in the Championship.
The last couple of those victories were via 2-1 scorelines and 23/2 for a repeat result is added to our Fulham vs Brighton betting tips.
Last Brighton EPL line-up: Button, Bong, Duffy, Dunk, Montoya, Stephens, Gross, March, Propper, Locadia, Murray.
