Brighton News and Form – Will the Seagulls beat Bournemouth?

Adam Webster gave Brighton the lead at Spurs on Thursday and the Seagulls were up at the half time break. But they collapsed in the second half to a 2-1 defeat. That is a four-match run without a win from the Seagulls now in the top-flight (D2 L2). They have claimed just one victory in their last eight EPL games (D2 L5). As some kind of positive for Brighton is that they have only failed to score in one of their last six fixtures now. Their home form sits at W3 D3 L3 in this campaign.

Bet365

Brighton’s last win on home soil happened against Norwich back at the start of November and have taken one point from their last three at the Amex only. The Seagulls failed to score in two of their last three on home turf. Brighton average 1.3 goals per home game this season and only one-third of games there this season have made it above the 2.5 goal line. Seven of the nine league games at the Amex this season have been level at the halftime break, which is a solid trend to consider. The Seagulls have conceded two-thirds of their home goals in the second period of fixtures.

Bournemouth News and Form – Can Bournemouth lift themselves to beat Brighton?

Bournemouth put in a big defensive shift against Arsenal on the weekend to play out a 1-1 draw at home against the Gunners. Every point is a relief for Bournemouth at the moment who have lost six of their last eight played (W1 D1). The Cherries have scored only two goals in their last five league games now and Dan Gosling has netted both of those. Those were both opening goals of fixtures as well. Overall it has been a poor run of form from the Cherries who are only W3 D1 L5 on their top-flight travels for the campaign.

That is one more win at least than they have managed at the Vitality Stadium this season. Under 2.5 goals has happened in each of Bournemouth’s last three games. They will have reason to be confident as they have only lost one of their last 12 games against the Seagulls in all competitions. The Cherries have scored at least two goals in each of their last three on the road against Brighton as well. Bournemouth are averaging 1.1 goals per away game this season. Two of their three away wins have been against teams who start the weekend in the bottom seven.

Brighton vs Bournemouth Tips & Odds

Home win at 4/5
Under 2.5 goals at 10/11
