Premier League

Saturday 8th October 2022

Brighton & Hove Albion v Tottenham Hotspur 17:30

  • Met 20 times in the league before, Brighton 6, Draws 3, Spurs 11
  • Last season’s repeat fixture ended, Brighton 0-2 Spurs
  • Each side took 3 points off the other in the league last season
  • Spurs are unbeaten in 10 of their last 13 vs Brighton
  • 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads went UNDER 2.5 GOALS
  • Both teams DIDN’T score in 3 of the last 4 head-to-heads
  • Spurs have scored in 15 of their last 18 vs Brighton
  • Harry Kane (Spurs) has scored in 6 of the last 10 head-to-heads

As we head into week nine in the Premier League for most of the sides – as the weekend starts its 4th vs 3rd as Brighton host Tottenham in the 5:30pm offering at the Amex Stadium.

The Seagulls have made a nice start to the season with 14 points and will be full of confidence after last week’s 3-3 draw against Liverpool last weekend.

Spurs will need to bounce back from a defeat to their London rivals Arsenal, but are still going well in the league with 17 points and just 3 off City and 4 off Arsenal.

The match betting for the game suggests a tight clash, with Brighton at 2.75, the Draw 3.40 and Spurs on offer at 2.50.

Last season this fixture ended 0-2 to Spurs, so if you fancy a repeat of that, it’s on offer at 13.00, while the London side are also unbeaten in 10 of their last 13 against Brighton.

Brighton did get their revenge in the reverse clash last season though, with a 0-1 away win at Spurs, so you feel it won’t all be plain sailing here for Conte’s men.

With 3 of the last 4 meetings going UNDER 2.5 GOALS and seeing both teams NOT score, then less than 3 goals in the game (Under 2.5 Goals) is another option to note at 1.90, while both teams ‘not’ to score is 2.05.

Harry Kane has made a good start to the season with 7 league goals, and he’s got a fair record when facing Brighton too – scoring in 6 of the last 10 meetings. The England man can be backed at 5.50 (1st) or 2.75 (anytime).

Brighton’s Trossard hit a purple-patch last weekend with a three-timer over Liverpool and the Belgium man might be worth a second look in the scoring markets at 9.00 (1st) or 4.00 (anytime).

Overall, it looks a tough away trip for Spurs, who were also in Champions League action on Tuesday night, so we’ll opt for the game to go Under 2.5 Goals at 1.90 – a bet that’s paid out in 75% of the last 4 head-to-heads.
