Arsenal make the trip to the AMEX Stadium in order to take on the Seagulls on Boxing Day. Brighton remain in the bottom half of the table but the advantage over the bottom three is not very substantial after the recent results. Arsenal are back level on points with Chelsea after the Blues slipped up last weekend. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Arsenal were able to come up with a 3-1 success over Burnley at home to take full advantage of Chelsea’s loss against Leicester City. This was the first win for Arsenal after back-to-back losses into competitions.
Brighton lost for three consecutive games after a 2-0 loss against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium. It is not a surprise that Brighton’s last success came against Crystal Palace at home.
The recent game between Brighton and Arsenal also happened to take place on this ground with the Seagulls getting a 2-1 success. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Arsenal.

Brighton are one of the strongest teams when it comes to home record this season. Chris Hughton has watched his team take just one fewer home point than Spurs. Even though Arsenal have only won 50% off their away games this season, the Gunners will have a strong motivation to go for a victory and possibly get into the top four places. Even if Arsenal only match Chelsea’s result, there is a possibility of the North London outfit overtaking the Blues since the goal difference advantage is not great. Our preview would back a win for Arsenal.

Correct Score odds
Arsenal came up with three goals against Burnley to make a strong case for being one of the top offensive teams in the division. The injury-time goal from Iwobi has just seen Arsenal go to 2nd place in terms of goals scored this season, while Brighton are one of the poorest with just 20 goals. Yet, their threat from set-pieces makes our correct score prediction go for an Arsenal 2-1 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The Brighton team has been able to get most of their success with a narrow 1-0 score. However, it will be extremely difficult for the Seagulls to contain an Arsenal team that has come up with more than two goals on average in the last six. Since Brighton are a decent threat from set pieces, our total goals prediction will go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang came up with a brace that put him back on the top of the Premier League scoring charts this season. The 29-year-old was able to get his 12th goal of the season and he will be looking to add more with Mohamed Salah and Harry Kane breathing down. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Aubameyang.
