Manchester City look to win the Premier League title for the second consecutive campaign when they take on Brighton at the AMEX Stadium in the final game of the season. Brighton are safe from relegation but the Seagulls have an opportunity to finish ahead of Southampton going into the last game of the campaign. Manchester City, meanwhile, have a one-point advantage over Liverpool and will win the title if they match Liverpool’s result. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Brighton were able to prevent Arsenal from getting a home victory after a 1-1 draw at the Emirates Stadium. Even though this was the ninth consecutive game without a victory in all competitions for Brighton, they were able to achieve Premier League safety.
Manchester City have been able to register a remarkable 13 successive victories in the league after the 1-0 win over Leicester City at home. Since conceding three against Tottenham in the Champions League, City have kept four successive clean sheets.
City required an early goal from Gabriel Jesus in order to beat Brighton in the recent meeting at the Etihad Stadium. This match was for an FA Cup encounter. City’s last home league match against Brighton saw them register a 2-0 victory. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a victory for Manchester City.

City are close to completing a remarkable comeback in the Premier League as they have overcome Liverpool’s stellar run with an impressive run of their own in the second half of the campaign.

Brighton are unlikely to put up much of a resistance with the Seagulls now expected to be thinking about their holidays after saving themselves from relegation. Our preview would pick a victory for Manchester City.

Brighton win odds: 15.00
Correct Score odds
City have had to work hard for recent victories but they have also been diligent in recent matches. The tight victories achieved against Leicester and Burnley is likely to be repeated once again with Brighton giving away very little despite their poor form. Brighton’s season has been built on defence and it is not a surprise that they have conceded the fewest number of goals amongst teams in the bottom six. Our correct score prediction would go with a City 2-0 win.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Manchester City have every right to be nervous coming into the game. The domestic cup double will not be sufficient for Guardiola. It is not a surprise that City have scored less than 2.5 goals in the last four encounters. Brighton’s defensive arrangement would make it difficult again for City. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Sergio Aguero will be leading the starting line-up in the hope of finding his 21st league goal of the campaign. Crucially, he will be looking to guide City to a league title just like the 2011-12 campaign. Aguero has managed to find the back of the net in his two league appearances against Brighton – including the reverse fixture. Our first goalscorer prediction would take a punt on Aguero.
