Brighton have put together a solid sequence of Premier League results and can close in on safety by beating already-relegated Sheffield United.
Albion can be guilty of being the better team in matches without making the most of chances created, but this is a golden opportunity to pick up maximum points.
Punters can get 3/4 for an away win at Bramall Lane and that is our first Sheff Utd vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Sheffield United’s Betting Odds
Sheffield United suffered the joint-earliest relegation in Premier League history after a 1-0 loss at Wolves made it five straight defeats in this competition.
The Blades have managed to score just two goals in 10 games overall, while only West Brom have a worse defensive record this term.
Captain John Egan told SUTV: “There are a lot of reasons, it’s 30-odd games played now and you are where you are for a reason and the reality is, we haven’t been good enough.
“There are no excuses or bickering ‘this is why, that is why’. It’s about performances on the pitch, they relate to points and we haven’t got enough this season.
“I feel like I’m saying the same things a lot of times this season. We’re very disappointed. The writing has been on the wall for a while and we’re all gutted.”
Egan insisted United are a “humble group” who will continue to “work hard no matter what the situation”, but a lack of confidence, as well as quality, is evident.
Looking at the Sheff Utd vs Brighton odds, we like 12/5 for an away victory and under 2.5 goals in the game.
Last Sheff Utd line-up: Ramsdale, Baldock, Stevens, Egan, Ampadu, Bryan, Fleck, Norwood, Osborn, McGoldrick, Brewster.
Sander Berge (hamstring) should feature before the end of the season, while Jack Robinson has also returned to training. Oli McBurnie (foot), Billy Sharp (thigh), Jack O’Connell (knee) and Chris Basham (leg) all remain sidelined.
A Look At Brighton and Hove Albion’s Betting Odds
Brighton edged ever nearer to staying up when battling for a goalless stalemate at Chelsea, having previously drawn 0-0 at home to Everton.
Before the international break, Albion enjoyed back-to-back wins over Southampton and Newcastle, while they returned to action with a slightly unlucky 2-1 loss at Manchester United.
Another resilient display at Stamford Bridge was only marred by Ben White’s late red card after Danny Welbeck had earlier fired against the woodwork from long range.
Graham Potter saluted his side’s dogged approach to claim a deserved point in west London.
“We hit the post and had a couple of good chances, but overall, I thought our players were amazing,” said the head coach.
“The commitment for the game, we sacrificed for each other and showed great personality, so we’re happy with the clean sheet and the point, and we move forwards.”
The Seagulls have actually secured more points away from home this season, posting wins at Newcastle, Aston Villa, Leeds, Liverpool and Southampton.
Four of those came by a one-goal margin, so 5/1 for a 1-0 away victory is added to our Sheff Utd vs Brighton betting tips.
Last Brighton line-up: Sanchez, White, Webster, Dunk, Burn, Veltman, Bissouma, Mac Allister, Gross, Trossard, Welbeck.
Defender White will serve a one-match suspension. Forward Percy Tau (hamstring) could return to the squad but Tariq Lamptey (hamstring) and Solly March (knee) remain out.
Wolves 1-0 SHEFF UTD
Chelsea 0-0 BRIGHTON
Head-to-head: Brighton 1-1 Sheff Utd, Sheff Utd 1-1 Brighton, Brighton 0-1 Sheff Utd
