Brighton vs Southampton predictions and betting tips for the Premier League fixture on Saturday 30th March 2019. Neither side are safe from relegation yet but a win for Brighton would see them move onto 36 points, Southampton are currently on 30, two points above the drop.
Brighton are in good form going into this match ans as well as winning their last two Premier League matches, they’ve also made it to the FA Cup semi-final after beating Millwall on penalties. That has given them renewed impotence and will expect to avoid relegation this season, a win here would help. They rarely score a lot of goals but don’t concede a lot either, so a low scoring Brighton victory would be the prediction here.
Southampton have won two of their last three games but these have both come at home, they have lost their last two away but they were defeats at Arsenal and Manchester United – prior to that they had gone unbeaten in four away games, beating Huddersfield and Leicester and drawing with Chelsea and Burnley. The Saints would go level on points with Brighton with a win against their south coast rivals, but for our Brighton vs Southampton match prediction, we’re betting on a home win at odds of 8/5 with William Hill.
Glen Murray is always the first name that comes to mind when predicting the goalscorers of Brighton matches but he had gone off the boil since his tremendous first few months of the season until he scored in Brighton’s last Premier League match. Before that goal against Crystal Palace he had scored two in 13 but we’re hoping to strike while the iron is hot here and take the 9/2 with bet365 that Glen Murray scored the first goal in this game.
If you were looking for an anytime goalscorer then there are a couple of Southampton players that spring out – one being James Ward-Prowse, who was away on international with England duty last week. He has chipped in with a few goals this season including a superb free-kick in their win against Tottenham last time out. You can get odds of 11/2 with Betfair for him to score anytime, but Glenn Murray is the betting tip here.
The last betting tip for this Brighton vs Southampton match on Saturday is going to be a correct score prediction and we’re expecting another tight win for the home side. In their last eight matches at home, they’ve scored just eight goals but Brighton rarely concede a lot either, the 3-1 loss to Burnley being the exception. Southampton do normally get on the scoresheet when they play away from home and they’ve found the net in seven of their last 10 Premier League away matches. With this in mind, we’re going slightly against the bookmakers predictions of a really low scoring match and going for a 2-1 Brighton victory, which completes this weekend’s Brighton vs Southampton betting tips. The best odds for Brighton to win 2-1 are 10/1 with Betfred.
A win for Brighton here would move them to 36 points and that would surely be enough to secure their place in the Premier League next season. Chris Hughton’s side have picked up two vital wins of late including against rivals Crystal Palace, winning 2-1.
Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will hope Southampton can get another positive result after they shocked Tottenham with a 2-1 victory last time out. They are only two points above the relegation places so will have one eye on Fulham’s 12.30pm kick-off against Manchester City and Cardiff’s game with Chelsea on Sunday.
