Brighton v Man United, Betting Preview & Prediction

BRIGHTON v MANCHESTER UNITED – Click here to bet

Brighton got their first points of the season with a 3-0 away win over Newcastle last week and that came on the back of a 3-1 home defeat to Chelsea.  They currently sit 8th on the table 7 positions ahead of Manchester United who have only played 1 game, but that was a very disappointing 3-1 home loss to Crystal Palace last week.  To give you an indication of how big an upset it was, Palace were available at 8/1 before the match.

Mnchester United did the double against Brighton last season winning this fixture 3-0 and beating them 3-1 at home.

BETTING

Brighton 73/20

Draw 11/4

Manchester United 8/10

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Brighton (+1) at 1/1

Brighton will be carrying plenty of confidence into this fixture after their win against Newcastle and United looked very vulnerable last week and Brighton will fancy their chances here.

Brighton v Chelsea, Betting Preview & Prediction

BRIGHTON v CHELSEA – Click here to bet

Brighton finished 15th on the log and ended their season with a victory, their only win in their last 5 matches.  They now face a Chelsea side that finished 4th on the table with 3 wins and 2 losses in their last 5 games.

These sides met in a friendly at the end of August and the game finished 1-1, the same score when this fixture finished last season.

Betting

Brighton 17/4

Draw 63/20

Chelsea 13/20

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Brighton (+1), the draw at 11/4

For this bet to land I need Chelsea to win by exactly 1 goal and the reason I am playing it is I believe we will get a tight match as we had the last time these sides met in Brighton.  Overall though I think this is a stronger Chelsea squad this year and that they will get their campaign going with 3 points.

West Ham v Newcastle, Betting Preview & Prediction

WEST HAM v NEWCASTLE UNITED – Click here to bet

West Ham narrowly avoided relegation last season and they did so thanks to a strong finish with 2 draws and 2 wins in their last 4 matches.

Newcastle went on a good run just after the COVID-19 break, but they ended the season with 4 defeats and a draw in their last 5, but still managed to finish 13th.

Newcastle won 3-2 at West Ham last season and there were a total of 9 goals in the two matches between the sides.

Betting

West Ham 23/20

Draw 5/2

Newcastle 49/20

Suggested Bet:  Over 2.5 goals at 19/20

The head-to-head stats suggest that we could have some goal bounce action in this one.

Liverpool v Leeds, Betting Preview & Prediction

LIVERPOOL v LEEDS UNITED – Click here to bet

Liverpool were Champions last season winning by 18 points and they face newly promoted Leeds United who make their return to the top flight for the first time since being relegated in 2004, meaning there is no recent head-to-head stats to go on here.

Betting

Liverpool 7/20

Draw 19/4

Leeds 8/1

Suggested Bet:  Handicap, Liverpool (-1) at 8/10

I expect Leeds will give a good account of themselves, but Liverpool should be too strong in the end and I back them to win by more than a goal.
