Brighton have been able to remain clear of relegation trouble and the club hope to make a leap towards the top 10 when Burnley visit the AMEX Stadium this weekend. Brighton are six points behind the top 10 places, while Burnley have been able to remain just above the bottom three. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brighton were unable to manage a home win over Watford despite having 21 shots at goal. The game finished as a goalless draw, and Brighton picked up a 3-1 extra time success over West Brom in the midweek FA Cup replay.
Burnley were able to snatch a late point against Southampton after Ashley Barnes equalised in the 94th minute to make it 1-1. It is quite incredible that Burnley are unbeaten in six matches coming into this encounter.
The last game between these two clubs at the AMEX Stadium produced a goalless draw, while the reverse fixture witnessed Burnley getting a narrow 1-0 victory. Our betting tips and predictions anticipate a draw.

Brighton and Burnley have been defensively solid in recent years and they have largely played out stalemates. The 1-0 win for Burnley back in December is the first success for anyone of teams in the last six meetings. Such has been the close nature of this contest and it is unlikely to change in this encounter, as Brighton have been hard to beat at home. Brighton have been on the losing side at the AMEX Stadium only to the top five opponents. Our preview would go with a victory for Brighton if not for some poor finishing. Now, a draw is a more appropriate choice.

Burnley win odds: 2.15
Brighton win odds: 3.75
Correct Score odds
A strong feature of Brighton this season has been their defence and it has kept the club clear of any relegation worries so far this season. Even though January signing Crouch made an immediate impact for Burnley, the Clarets remain weak going forward. At the same time, both teams have been difficult to separate in terms of goals conceded. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There has been a solitary example of a high-scoring game between Brighton and Burnley whenever these two opponents have met each other since 2014. Such has been the tight contest of this fixture. There is unlikely to be any change this time around, as both teams have been defensively excellent of late. This is especially true of Burnley, who have conceded just five goals in the last six games. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Glen Murray had multiple chances to score against Watford and it is likely that he will once again be the primary target for Brighton’s wingers. The 35-year-old has come up with 10 league goals for the Seagulls and he is their only player to hit double figures for the campaign. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Glen Murray.
