Brighton are up against Crystal Palace at the AMEX Stadium having to make a significant move into the top half of the table. The Eagles are only two points behind Watford in the 10th place and they can even catch Leicester City in the eighth spot with a favourable set of results. Crystal Palace have done extremely well to move three points clear of the drop. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brighton picked up a comeback victory in the Premier League for the first time after beating Huddersfield 2-1 at the John Smith’s Stadium during the weekend. Brighton capitalised on Steve Mounie’s first-half red card.
Crystal Palace had the third highest shots in the Premier League game, but the 29 shots against Burnley yielded just two goals. The 2-0 win over the Clarets is the first league win for Palace since the middle of September.
The recent game between Palace and Brighton took place at Selhurst Park with the London outfit managing a 3-2 success. Brighton’s last home game against Palace was in the FA Cup and they managed a 2-1 win. The last league meeting between these two clubs at the AMEX Stadium produced a goalless draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a success for Brighton.

Crystal Palace are given odds of 2.87 but they are not a good pick to come out successful in this match. Brighton have had the joy of playing against 10 men for much of the game against Huddersfield during the weekend. Further, Chris Hughton rested key players like Glen Murray. Palace lack a proper centre forward and this may have been a factor behind the club’s poor shots conversion ratio, which stands at just over 5%. Our preview would pick a win for Brighton.

Brighton vs Crystal Palace draw odds: 3.00
Crystal Palace win odds: 2.87
Correct Score odds
There has been a decent return of goals whenever Brighton have stepped onto the pitch. Chris Hughton’s men have had more focus on the defence in recent times but they have kept committing individual mistakes to render them at a disadvantageous position. Palace may once again come in with plenty of shots at goal, but their conversion ratio remains poor due to the absence of a centre forward. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Brighton.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This game is between two teams that have experienced decent form over the last few games. Even though they may not be too far apart in terms of scoring goals, the two teams have enough threat to come up with goals. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Glen Murray is expected to start the game after being rested for the match against Huddersfield. The 35-year-old has been Brighton’s ray of hope with his seven league goals helping the club to a significant return of points. Murray has scored in his last two games against Palace and the first goalscorer prediction would back the 35-year-old.
