Crystal Palace News and Form – Will Palace beat Brighton?

The Eagles have earned 7 points in their last three games which has been a great return. They have been watertight at the back as well, not having conceded in that run of three fixtures. The wind there were against Burnley and Bournemouth, while they played out a 0-0 draw at Watford last weekend. The home form of the Eagles this season reads W3 D2 L3 and they seem to be a well-settled team at the moment. They have only given up 7 goals in their eight home fixtures.

William Hill

Just one game at Selhurst Park this season has made it over 2.5 goals. Palace have earned a clean sheet in half of their home games. Four of the six league wins that Crystal Palace have put in the bag this season have been by a 1 goal margin. After last weekend’s round of action, only bottom side Watford had scored fewer goals than the Eagles. Another good trend to consider for a betting angle is the half time draw. Six of the league matches at Selhurst Park this season have been level at the break.

Brighton News and Form – Can the Seagulls win at Palace?

The Seagulls are only three points back of Palace in the standings. Last weekend they earned a good point at home against Wolves. That was straight after an away win at Arsenal. It has not been a terrific season by Brighton out on the road as they have only taken a W2 D1 L5 record. They were on a four-match losing streak on their travels before that shock success out at Arsenal at the beginning of the month.

Four of the five away losses that Brighton have suffered this season have been against teams starting the weekend in the top five. It has been an average of a goal per away game by Brighton this season. In each of their last four games against Crystal Palace, Brighton have scored at least two goals, so they could fancy their chances in this one. There is enough in this one to suggest things are going to be tight at least. The difference-maker could be that Brighton only have two away clean sheets and have conceded at an average of 1.75 goals per away game.

Crystal Palace vs Brighton Predictions

Crystal Palace to win: This will probably be tight. Just like the defence of Palace has been. They may be able to stand strong enough to go and edge a win at Selhurst Park. Brighton will be in this though because if you take out their results against top-six sides, they have done alright. Home win.
