What Trueform says for Brighton vs Stoke
Other than Brighton’s big win at West Ham, there is little to choose between the Seagulls and Stoke from our Trueform ratings of their recent Premier League exploits.
With the Hammers in disarray at the time of that 3-0 triumph, we reckon it may be wise to focus on the other results on show.
That move makes Albion and the Potters very hard to split, so 21/10 for a draw gets the nod in our Brighton vs Stoke betting predictions.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton climbed to as high as eighth in the table after Glenn Murray’s 29th-minute strike proved enough to secure a 1-0 win at Swansea.
That triumph also meant the Seagulls had claimed back-to-back away victories in the top flight for only the second time in their history.
Murray may have been gifted his opportunity but that was a third straight Premier League game in which he found the net.
Brighton boss Chris Hughton said: “We know what we have in Glenn. He has been consistent wherever he has been and has always scored goals.
“Perhaps as you get a bit older and more experienced you lose a few bits from your game, but you never lose where the goal is. We are delighted that he has been able to do that with us because it is having a great impact on the team.”
Albion have scored in seven of their last eight league games, while Stoke have drawn a blank in front of goal just once in nine top-flight fixtures.
That makes Evens for both teams to score a percentage pick for our Brighton vs Stoke betting tips.
A Look At Stoke City’s Betting Odds
Stoke are three points and six places behind their opponents but will have been buoyed by a couple of decent results before the international break.
The Potters picked up a welcome 1-0 win at Watford and then twice came from behind to draw 2-2 against Leicester on home turf.
Switzerland star Xherdan Shaqiri showed his class with a clinical finish for City’s first equaliser and provided the corner for Peter Crouch’s second leveller.
“It is important that you consistently pick up points,” commented Mark Hughes. “It is about getting a steady return. Every time you get a Premier League point, you should celebrate.”
Brighton boss Hughton would agree after securing 1-1 draws with Everton and Southampton in Albion’s last two home matches.
Looking at the Brighton vs Stoke odds, 5/1 for a repeat of that scoreline here is fair value.
