Brighton sit 16th on the table and while extremely unlikely they could still be relegated mathematically.  Their recent form has been poor with just 1 point taken from the last 9 they have played for and that came in an away match at Southampton last time out.  They have had a tough run of fixtures though, their 2 home defeats were against Manchester City and Liverpool.

Newcastle are 13th on the table, 6 points ahead of Brighton and after a good run they have hit a really wobbly patch losing their last 3 and only taking 1 point from the last 12 they have played for.  Their last 2 away games were a 2-1 defeat to Watford and a 5-0 loss to City.

These sides played out to a goalless draw earlier in the season and their last 5 head-to-head matches have had 2 goals or less in them.

Brighton 17/20

Draw 26/10

Newcastle 71/20

Suggested Bet:  Brighton win at 17/20

Both these sides are in shaky form, but Brighton have had by far the toughest of the fixtures and at home I am backing them to put Newcastle away.
