Brighton & Hove Albion vs Tottenham | Prediction, Betting Tips & Odds
This is one of the crucial games for the Spurs this season. They have no room for mistakes, and they have to win in order to boost their morale. The recent turn of events delivered some huge hits for both the team and the fans. Meanwhile, Brighton failed to use the momentum after defeating Man Utd, and they too are under pressure to make a positive result out of this one.
The Seagulls got one point against Southampton at St. Mary’s, last Monday. Someone might say that it was pure luck, someone that it is due to their warrior mentality, but we can all agree that it was a good result for them. The Spurs lost to Liverpool at home, 1:2, and afterward got hammered against Inter Milan in the Champions League, just a few seconds before the end of the injury time. This cold-streak simply has to stop at one moment, and it appears that they hope to do that this Saturday.
Brighton & Hove Albion
Hosts didn’t win in the previous four games. We said that the momentum they had after defeating United at Amex was lost right away. First, they had two minimal losses against Liverpool and Southampton in the EFL, followed by two draws with the same result, 2:2, against Fulham and again with the Saints. It is interesting that they either play very efficient matches or extremely dull. Also, for all the statistic fans there is one fun fact about this team, and that is that they couldn’t keep a clean sheet in the latest 13 straight fixtures.
Watford started this very unpleasant series for the Spurs. The Hornets defeated them with 2:1, after that Liverpool, took all three points from Wembley with the same result, and in the end, they lost with the same result again this Tuesday in Milan. Mauricio Pochettino is coping with many issues, and among them are injuries, fatigue after the World Cup, a lack of stability in the back line, etc. But what is constant with this club is the fact that they always provide efficient matches. In the preceding seven games, we saw over 2.5 goals each and every time. This is why Spurs are desirable on your ticket. Many things in their game will depend on whether is Dele Alli fit to play or not. After all, he is the heart and soul of this squad.
Latest Team News
Brighton will have their three important players back in action. Pascal Gross, Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo will probably be ready for this match, and that is a massive boost for the Seagulls. As we said, Alli is doubtful, same as Moussa Sissoko. Hugo Lloris, Vincent Jansen, and Juan Foyth are ruled out for this one.

Brighton & Hove Albion vs Tottenham | Top Betting Tip: Tottenham (1-2)
Both teams to score is our first choice, and we want to tell you that right at the beginning of this paragraph. Hosts like to play exciting matches lately, with goals on both sides of the pitch. The same situation is with the visiting team, whose matches are efficient no matter the opponent. Besides both teams scoring, over 2.5 is almost sure here. As soon as one side strikes, be sure that other one will focus only on hitting the back of the net, without thinking about consequences. That is their mentality of play. About the final outcome, we didn’t have any doubts. Spurs have to stop their negative series, and Brighton is the perfect victim for this. The overall difference in quality is just too big between the two sides. Final result, Brighton – Tottenham 1:2.
