Brighton vs Newcastle betting tips and predictions for tonight’s top of the table clash in the Championship where these two are separated by just one point.
Tonight could be pivotal in the race for the Championship title, Brighton currently sit one point ahead of Newcastle at the top of the table and Huddersfield are a further five points back. A win tonight will put one of these teams in a commanding position for a place in the Premier League.
Newcastle have dropped four points in their last three matches with two draws. They went 2-0 at home to Bristol City at the weekend before rescuing a point and also conceded two away to Norwich. Their defence is a concern for tonight because Brighton are strong at the back, and score plenty of goals. They’ve won seven of their last eight at home, conceding just four. Based on Brighton’s home form, my first Brighton vs Newcastle prediction for tonight is Brighton to win and the best odds are 31/20 with bet365.

Despite Brighton’s solid home form I do think Newcastle will get on the scoresheet. They have only failed to score once on the road this season. It’s surprising to see the odds for both teams to score so generous tonight. The best odds for BTTS are Evens at Betfair and that looks like a great bet for tonight’s second Brighton vs Newcastle betting tip.

We’re spoilt for choice for a goalscorer bet tonight. Dwight Gayle is the obvious choice in the Newcastle line-up but we’re looking at a Brighton player at more generous odds. Sam Baldock has scored 10 goals this season and four in his last four. We’re looking to strike while the player is in form tonight and get another winning bet to complete our Brighton vs Newcastle predictions for tonight. The best odds for Baldock to score anytime are 11/4 with bet365.
