Brighton remain hopeful about avoiding relegation when they take on a relegation rival at the AMEX Stadium this weekend. Brighton have been slipping ever closer towards the drop following the latest set of results, while Huddersfield received a major boost in their fight to survive in the division as the team closed the gap to Fulham down to three points. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brighton’s poor form extended even further with the team missing multiple opportunities in the 2-1 defeat against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. Brighton have only picked up one win in the last 12 league outings.
Huddersfield were able to breathe a huge sigh of relief after beating Wolves 1-0 at home in the midweek action. This was the first win of Jan Siewert’s time with the club and it is also the first win achieved by Huddersfield since beating the same opponent back in November.
The reverse fixture witnessed Brighton getting a 2-1 win over Huddersfield, who were reduced to 10 men, back in December. The recent game between two teams at the AMEX Stadium produced a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions for this match anticipate a win for Brighton.

Huddersfield were able to manage a very crucial win over Wolves but it does little to improve their chances of survival with the team an incredible 11 points behind safety. Huddersfield have only picked up three wins all season long and they are up against a Brighton outfit that has also been struggling for results. Even though Chris Hughton’s men may have poor set of results on paper, their performances have been quite decent. Our preview would go with a home win.

Brighton vs Huddersfield Town draw odds: 3.40
Huddersfield win odds: 5.25
Correct Score odds
The recent matches for Huddersfield have been very low on goals as the relegation-threatened outfit struggle to overcome one of their biggest failings. Brighton have also been low on goals and the game against Leicester especially highlighted the offensive issues for Chris Hughton’s men in recent weeks. Both teams need to convert the chances that come their way and Brighton are slightly better in this regard. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-0 win for the hosts.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This is a game between two clubs that have managed a grand total of seven goals between them over the last six matches. Huddersfield are predictably at the bottom of the pile in terms of scoring goals. Both teams may have been defensively poor, but our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Glen Murray missed a couple of glorious opportunities against Leicester but the veteran remains the important player for the club. He is also the club’s top scorer with 10 goals – well ahead of Duffy in the second place. However, the 34-year-old may not start due to the very little recovery time. Florin Andone is a better choice and the 25-year-old recently scored in the draw with West Brom. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Florin Andone.
