Betting Tips for the game
Brighton were able to overcome a three-game losing streak to pick up a 1-1 draw with Arsenal on Boxing Day. It was an impressive performance from Chris Hughton’s men, who have been able to get many points off top teams at home.
Everton were able to come up with a first victory in six matches after beating Burnley 5-1 at Turf Moor. Since the home success over Cardiff towards the end of November, Everton had been without a win.
The recent game between Everton and Brighton produced a 3-1 win for the former at Goodison Park. However, the two teams played out a 1-1 draw when they last met each other at the AMEX Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Everton and Brighton are given attractive prices to win the match, but it is difficult to back both teams for a victory in the game. While Everton have been conceding too many goals in recent weeks, Brighton tend to play with an eye on a clean sheet. The Seagulls have been defensively prudent the season and this is especially true when it comes to games at home. Everton, though, will be able to come up with at least one goal considering that their forward line up is still in a great moment. Our preview would pick a draw.

Brighton win odds: 3.50
Everton win odds: 2.25
Correct Score odds
The recent matches for Everton have been involved with several goals as Everton’s defence has been ripped apart time and time again. The blues have ended up conceding more than two goals per game on average in the last six matches. Brighton, meanwhile, remains solid at the back without being outstanding in front of goal. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
These two teams have faced each other only in three games since the Premier League era began. Just one of those games has been a high-scoring fixture and there is a strong likelihood of the game experiencing under 2.5 goals. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Glen Murray is the leading scorer for Brighton with eight goals and he has been able to score the majority of his goals at home. Just one of the eight goals have come in an away match. His threat from set pieces and penalty situations is quite obvious and our first goalscorer prediction would back Murray.
