The AMEX Stadium is the destination for the meeting between Brighton and Leicester City just after the international break. The Seagulls and Foxes are separated by just three points with both teams fighting to grab a place in the top 10 of the table by the end of the campaign. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brighton lost for a second consecutive Premier League game as they were undone by a late winner from Cardiff City in a 2-1 result at the Cardiff City Stadium. The result comes just a week after the 3-1 loss against Everton.
Leicester were unable to pay a winning tribute for their former chairman in the first game at the King Power Stadium since the tragic accident, as they were held to a goalless draw by Burnley. The foxes have picked up one win in the last five games.
The recent game between Leicester and Brighton produced a 2-0 victory for the Foxes at the AMEX Stadium back in March. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Leicester are given a price of 2.50 to win the match. Yet, this would not be our choice. Similarly, Brighton may also get an attractive 2.80 price for a victory but they are unlikely to pick up three consecutive home wins. Claude Puel’s men are sufficiently solid at the back but they have struggled going forward. Brighton do not score many goals and this should result in an easy afternoon for Leicester’s back four. Our preview would stick with a draw.

Brighton win odds: 2.80
Leicester City win odds: 2.50
Correct Score odds
Leicester have been able to score just four more goals than Brighton from the first 12 matches of the campaign. Chris Hughton’s men have a reputation for being heavily dependent on Glen Murray and set pieces for their goals. Leicester – without Riyad Mahrez – may not create many opportunities and it is not a surprise to see the team score just an average of one goal per game in the last six. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though both clubs have been involved in high-scoring matches this season, the general expectation is that this match may not be an entertainer in terms of goals. Brighton will look to go solid at the back after conceding five in the last two league outings. Leicester do not have many prolific scorers up front. Our total goals prediction would opt for under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Glen Murray has been unable to score in his last two appearances but the 35-year-old may appreciate the extended break over the last two weeks. He has been able to score in three out of the last four matches at the AMEX Stadium – including the opener in all of those games. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Glen Murray.
