Brighton vs Leicester prediction, betting tips & odds

Kick-off: 1400, 04/09/2022

Stadium: Amex Stadium

TV: Sky Sports

Brighton and Leicester are rated similar in terms of quality but Albion are playing with much more confidence and self-belief this season.

The Foxes are bottom of the table with just one point from five outings and still seem shaken by what was a turbulent transfer window.

A home win at 1.88 has to be the percentage pick for our opening Brighton vs Leicester prediction.

Brighton Odds

Brighton cashed in on Marc Cucurella, Yves Bissouma and Neal Maupay this summer but Graham Potter has established a settled style of play which helped in the recruitment of replacements.

Albion kicked off with a cracking win at Manchester United and went on to secure 10 points out of a possible 12 before slipping up at Fulham last weekend.

Aleksandar Mitrovic’s 48th-minute strike and a Lewis Dunk own goal gave the Seagulls a mountain to climb at Craven Cottage.

Alexis Mac Allister pulled one back from the penalty spot but Deniz Undav’s late effort hit the post as Brighton pushed for an equaliser.

“I think we were below par,” admitted Potter. “We weren’t quite as good as we can be and when you’re like that in the Premier League it can be tough.”

However, Potter was re-energised by landing Scotland international Billy Gilmour from Chelsea on a four-year deal on deadline day.

“Billy’s an exciting signing for us,” beamed Potter. “He’s an able footballer and a great character, he has a great personality.

“He’ll fit into the group and add competition in midfield. We’re really pleased to have him here.”

Meanwhile, Danny Welbeck netted in both Premier League meetings with City last term and is 5.0 to open the scoring here in the Brighton vs Leicester odds.

Last Brighton line-up: Sanchez, Webster, Dunk, Estupinan, Veltman, March, Mwepu, Mac Allister, Gross, Caicedo, Trossard.

Leicester City Odds

Leicester have suffered four straight defeats since blowing a 2-0 lead when drawing 2-2 at home to Brentford first up.

Arsenal, Southampton and Chelsea prevailed against the Foxes before Manchester United managed to grind out a 1-0 win at King Power Stadium on Thursday.

City were again disjointed in defence and lacking an attacking spark for large parts of that contest.

Brendan Rodgers has been left picking up the pieces following a frustrating summer, which saw Wesley Fofana and Kasper Schmeichel depart.

At least deadline-day signing Wout Faes was acquired while James Maddison and Youri Tielemans will no longer be distracted by transfer rumours.

“I’m happy that the window’s shut, if I’m being honest,” Rodgers said. “I mean, there were huge distractions.

“This group have shown that they can compete but we needed help – and, unfortunately, we haven’t been able to get that.”

Leicester still have a decent side on paper but the vibes are that too many people have been feeling sorry for themselves so far.

Until seeing some improvement, we reckon 8.5 for Albion to win 2-1 is another solid Brighton vs Leicester prediction.

Last Leicester line-up: Ward, Justin, Evans, Thomas, Barnes, Tielemans, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Ndidi, Soumare, Vardy.
