Southampton v Brighton – Premier League Betting Guide: 17th Sept 2018

Monday 17th September 2018
 
Southampton v Brighton & Hove Albion 20:00

It’s off to the south coast this Monday night as Southampton and Brighton do battle at the St Mary’s Stadium.

Both sides have 4 points after their first four Premier League games but a win here for either team will see them move into the top half of the table.

The repeat fixture from last season ended in a 1-1 draw so if you fancy that outcome again you’ll be rewarded at odds of 6.50.
The match betting sees Southampton as the clear favourites at 2.05, with the draw 3.30 and Brighton at 4.20.

They’ve also already met this season – in the EFL Cup – with that game ending 0-1 to the Saints, but it is worth noting both league clashes last term ended in draws. Both also ended 1-1!

In fact, the Saints have lost just one of their last 6 home league games against the Seagulls, however, it’s also been a meeting that has had plenty of incidents – we’ve seen 3 red cards in the last 5 head-to-heads.

Brighton’s Glenn Murray seems to love playing Southampton too – the veteran striker scored in both head-to-heads last season so the 3.75 on him scoring in the game might appeal.

It looks like being a tight game on paper with the last three head-to-heads all going UNDER 2.5 GOALS – a repeat of this can be backed at 1.61.

However, the call here is to stick with the DRAW. This bet paid out in both league meetings last season, while 2 of the last 3 repeat league fixtures also ended all-square.

BEST BET: DRAW @3.30
