Premier League Betting Tips Today

Now that the international break is done, our experts are back for another Premier League weekend here at BettingTips.net. We’ve analysed the facts, the stats and form to come up with our Premier League betting tips & predictions for this weekend.

For our Premier League predictions today, we’re turning our attention to South London. At Selhurst Park Crystal Palace host Brighton as both sides look to bounce back from consecutive defeats. If you’re looking for Premier League tips & betting info for this one, then read on!

The current constitution

Crystal Palace lok to bounce back

After a blistering start, that saw them beat Southampton at home and grab an impressive away win at Manchester United, Palace faltered in their last 2 games. Roy Hodgson had a bad case of the blues after getting beaten at home by Everton and suffering a 4-0 Thumping away to Chelsea. Palace have a history of keeping the scores low at home though, so our Premier League predictions suggest their luck could be about to change. The Eagles’ have bolstered their squad with the short term signing of Nathaniel Clyne. However, they’ll miss James McCarthy through injury.

Brighton need to turn performances into points

Brighton only have 3 points on the board after 3 games, with a 3-0 win over Newcastle being the only green sticker on their record. However, it could be argued that the Seagulls’ performances have deserved more. They were unlucky in their 3-2 loss against United and have managed to find the net in every game so far. Given that their 3 losses have been to Chelsea, Everton and Manchester United, they should be hopeful of taking something home from Selhurst Park on Sunday. All eyes are on French forward Maupay who’s in fine form.

Head to Head

This fixture last season ended in a 1-1 draw, with Palace taking all 3 points in the return fixture at the Amex. Generally, there’s an even spread of wins between these sides, as the last 5 games have ended in two wins apiece and one draw. 4 of the last 6 games have been won by a single goal, so we can expect a slowly contested fixture on Sunday. No side really appears to enjoy a home advantage in this fixture either, so the fact it’s the first fanless encounter between the teams shouldn’t affect our Premier League prediction weekend too much.

Our Betting Tip for Today

Having considered the above information and recent form, our Premier League predictions today point to a Brighton win by a single goal.

Brighton to Edge it

On paper, Palace look like the side in slightly better form, however on the pitch Brighton have been impressive if a little bit unlucky. Given that Crystal Palace are very much a beatable opponent, we reckon that Brighton can see them off. That being said, it won’t be easy, especially given The Eagles’ track record of keeping modest score lines at Selhurst Park. Furthermore, 4 of the last 6 games between these sides have been decided by a single goal. Of the remaining two, one was a 3-1 win for the Seagulls and the other 1-1 draw. We’re therefore backing Brighton to win by a single goal. SkyBet are offering this on odds of 4, the best around. If you’re looking to back scorers from either side, then Brighton’s Neal Maupay and Palace’s Wilfred Zaha are always a good shout.
