Brighton vs Huddersfield predictions and betting tips for the Premier League fixture on Saturday 2nd March 2019. Brighton have been dragged right back into the relegation fight and they need to start picking up points quickly. See our predictions and betting tips below.
Following their defeat to Leicester City in midweek, Brighton have now gone seven league matches without a win and the only victory in their last 12 Premier League matches was the 1-0 home win against Everton. They now sit just two points above the relegation zone and with games against fellow relegation rivals upcoming, they’ll know they need to turn their FA Cup form into league form sooner rather than later. That could start against bottom side Huddersfield here, but the relegation doomed Terriers pulled off a shock 1-0 win last time out against Wolves, however their form on the road is dreadful.
Huddersfield have picked up just one point from their last eight away matches and they’ve failed to score a goal in their last five on the road. It is hard to see how this one is going to be a high scoring game in truth, so under 1.5 goals is the first of our Brighton vs Huddersfield predictions.
This will be one of the matches where Brighton have earmarked it as a must win. They have much tougher assignments coming up and if they can’t beat bottom of the table Huddersfield at home, they probably deserve to be in the position they are. Chris Hughton’s side have been poor of late and in the last 11 home Premier League matches, they have scored more than one goal only once. This really is a must win for them and we’re predicting they will get the job done, just.
For all their faults, it is very rarely that Huddersfield concede a lot of goals in a single game. The recent 5-0 loss at Chelsea was an exception to that of course, but they are quite good at keeping things tight at the back for long periods of matches. With that in mind, the correct score prediction for this game is Brighton to win 1-0 and the odds are 9/2 with bet365.
