Fulham take on Brighton at Craven Cottage looking to avoid three consecutive losses in the league. The Cottagers are in the bottom three of the league table after having failed to capitalise on the lift provided by Claudio Ranieri’s arrival at the club. Brighton continue to keep the push for a top-10 finish going along very well and the team are only a couple of points away from the top 10.

Betting Tips for the game
Fulham were at the end of a 2-1 defeat against Tottenham and this was the fourth consecutive loss for the team. The last victory for Fulham was in the final match of 2018.
Brighton had to settle for a replay in the FA Cup after a goalless draw with Darren Moore’s West Brom at the AMEX Stadium. Brighton have managed only one victory in the last five matches.
The recent match between Brighton and Fulham produced a 2-2 draw back in September. Brighton, though, picked up a 2-1 victory when they last visited Craven Cottage around the same time last year. Our betting tips and predictions expect a success for Brighton.

Fulham are struggling for results coming into the match and Claudio Ranieri has seen his team suffer some embarrassing defeats over the last few weeks. The Londoners have lost all of the games in 2019 and it makes the team devoid of any confidence coming into this match. The same cannot be said about Brighton, who may have lost back-to-back games in the league. The Seagulls have been able to come up with a strong set of performances even on the road and it should help them against a fragile Fulham outfit. Our preview would go with a win for Brighton.

Fulham vs Brighton draw odds: 3.25
Fulham win odds: 2.40
Correct Score odds
Brighton and Fulham have managed the same number of goals (5) in the last six matches, and they are not too different in terms of conceding goals either. The addition of players like Ryan Babel has infused new blood into Fulham, while Brighton will once again look to remain solid – as they have been throughout the campaign. The visitors are expected to edge the encounter by a slender margin. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Brighton.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
There have been over 2.5 goals in the last six meetings between Fulham and Brighton. A majority of those games have in fact turned out to be goal fests. The likelihood of a high-scoring match is quite high with both teams mediocre at the back. Our total goals prediction would back over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Glen Murray has been struck on eight goals for several weeks. The forward last scored a goal almost 2 months ago in the home match against Crystal Palace. Florin Andone has been the player on form for Chris Hughton’s men. The 25-year-old was extremely hard and he did score in Brighton’s visit of Bournemouth. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Andone.
