Brighton are rock-solid when it comes to home games as they have only lost to Liverpool, Chelsea and Tottenham on home soil this season. In fact, they have only lost to one team from outside of the traditionakl ‘Big Six’ since the start of the 2017/18 campaign (their only defeats were against Man City, Liverpool (twice), Chelsea (twice), Tottenham and Leicester).
Chris Hughton’s men tend to get points against the lesser lights in the division at the Amex and the draw is looking tempting at 23/10 this weekend.
Five of the past six meetings have ended in draws, with the 0-0 correct score available at a tempting 13/2 with Bet Victor.
The last three meetings between Brighton and Burnley have finished 0-0, 0-0 and 1-0 to Burnley. With that in mind, under 2.5 goals is one for odds-on backers (4/7) and our best Brighton v Burnley bet is under 1.5 goals at 17/10 with BetVictor.com
The worry for Brighton is that they have gone 301 minutes without scoring a goal in front of their own fans in all competitions (ticking no in the ‘Both Teams To Score’ bracket is a 4/5 bet), albeit Burnley are hardly firing on all cylinders.
Sean Dyche’s side have improved to go unbeaten in six league games, but they don’t travel well.
The Clarets have failed to score in seven of thirteen league matches on the road, winning only two, and a low scoring draw is increasingly looking like the best bet for Saturday’s match.
