Brighton take on a highflying Fulham at the AMEX stadium looking to reverse a recent run of poor results. Chris Hughton’s men were unable to build on the impressive win over Manchester United, as they are stuck on just three points from the opening three matches. Fulham are starting to come good after a poor set of results in the opening couple of games. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brighton were unable to repeat the magic shown in the Manchester United match as the team full to a 1-0 defeat against Liverpool during the weekend. This was followed by a home defeat against Southampton in the second round of the League Cup.
Fulham are starting to get deserved results as the impressive team assembled by Slavisa Jokanovic has been able to get back-to-back wins – Burnley during the weekend and Exeter City in the midweek League Cup action.
The recent game between Brighton and Fulham was in the Championship and it finished as a 2-1 win in favour of Brighton. The Seagulls were also able to claim a similar victory in the last meeting at the AMEX stadium. Our preview would go with a win for Fulham.

Brighton are at short odds of 2.20 to emerge victorious, but we would not choose Chris Hughton’s men for a victory. Despite an impressive win against Manchester United, the seagulls have not been impressive. The same cannot be said about Fulham, who may be level on points with Brighton but have certainly deserved more. Fulham are impressive in several aspects of the game and this is especially true when the team are going forward. Our preview would choose a win for Fulham.

Brighton vs Fulham draw odds: 3.30
Brighton win odds: 2.20
Correct Score odds
The Fulham team is impressive going forward and it is not a surprise that the club has scored more goals than the likes of Manchester United in this early part of the campaign. Buoyed by the physical threat of Aleksandar Mitrovic and the pace of Sessegnon, Fulham are a force to reckon with. Brighton can be pushed by the home supporters for a goal but it is difficult to look beyond a moderate return. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 2-1 win for Fulham.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The last low scoring game between Fulham and Brighton took place almost 4 years ago and it speaks volumes about the high-scoring nature when these two teams meet each other. Fulham’s attacking presence alone is capable of increasing the goal tally in the game. Our total goals prediction would back more than 2.5 goals.
[bet_tip_now stars_1_2_3=”3″ block_title=”Goals odds and prediction:”]Total goals over 2.5 at 1.95[/bet_tip_now]
First Goalscorer odds
Mitrovic is up there with one of the top scorers since February 2018. The striker helped himself to a brace against Burnley and this adds to his goal against Spurs. The 23-year-old is up against Brighton for the first time in his career and our first goalscorer prediction would back Mitrovic.
