Brighton vs Everton: Albion tipped to close in on safety

Kick-off: 2015, 12/04/2021

Stadium: Amex Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Home advantage has been the key to recent encounters between Brighton and Everton, with the away team tasting defeat in their last six head-to-head meetings.

Current Premier League form also favours Albion, so we’re expecting that trend to continue in Monday’s night’s contest at Amex Stadium.

Punters can get 27/20 for the Seagulls to prevail and that is our first Brighton vs Everton prediction.

A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds

Brighton eased their relegation fears with back-to-back wins over Southampton and Newcastle before the international break and returned to action with a brave effort at Manchester United.

Danny Welbeck opened the scoring against his former club at Old Trafford and was unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty when tangling with Harry Maguire.

However, goals from Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood gave United a 2-1 win, leaving Graham Potter frustrated to come away with nothing.

“Over the course of the game we did a lot well but when you’re 1-0 up you want to try and hold on and get something,” said Potter.

“On another day we could have done that. We just need to move forward to the last eight games and get the points we need.”

Albion are certainly playing well enough to steer clear of trouble and this is another decent chance to close in on safety.

Looking at the Brighton vs Everton odds, we like 9/1 for a 2-1 home victory.

Last Brighton line-up: Sanchez, White, Dunk, Veltman, Bissouma, Gross, Lallana, Moder, Maupay, Trossard, Welbeck.

A Look At Everton’s Betting Odds

Everton were being talked of as top-four contenders at times this term but their season is in danger of fizzling out.

The Toffees went into the international break under a cloud after losing two league games and crashing out of the FA Cup.

Starting up again with a 1-1 draw against Crystal Palace at Goodison Park will have done little to improve Carlo Ancelotti’s mood.

Eagles substitute Michy Batshuayi scored a late equaliser two minutes after coming off the bench to cancel out James Rodriguez’s 56th-minute strike.

Ancelotti said: “After we opened the scoring, we had opportunities, we could have closed the game.

“Sometimes it can happen in the last 10 minutes you have to defend and there might be a little mistake. That’s what happened and we have two points less.

“I think a position in Europe is still there because we are in the fight and we have one game in hand but we have to be more focused in this situation.”

Everton have the talent to move back up the table but momentum is a big thing in sport and they are lacking that asset right now.

Let’s finish off our Brighton vs Everton betting tips by taking 9/2 for the scores to be level at half-time and then Albion to win.

Last Everton line-up: Olsen, Holgate, Keane, Digne, Mina, Coleman, Rodriguez, Gomes, Davies, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.
