Chelsea vs Brighton Betting Tips
Chelsea are odds-on betting favourites to win this Premier League clash on 20 April, with the Blues chasing down a top four spot under Thomas Tuchel and they got back on track with regard to this aim when winning 4-1 at Crystal Palace.
They will clash with Brighton & Hove Albion at Stamford Bridge, with Graham Potter’s team potentially obstinate opponents for this clash, especially as Chelsea will previously have clashed with Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final after a Champions League clash against Porto.
Can Chelsea Be Trusted to Beat Brighton?
Chelsea are faring well under Thomas Tuchel although the Blues have won less than 50% of their Premier League matches this season and they came a cropper against West Brom in their most recent home clash when losing 5-2 against the Baggies.
Our prediction is that the London side might have a few problems breaking down Brighton in this clash, with the Seagulls likely to set up to contain opponents who have a busy fixture schedule even if Chelsea can rotate their squad and freshen things up where necessary.
Why We’re Betting on Chelsea v Brighton to be Low-Scoring
Brighton have been flirting with the relegation zone for much of the 2020/21 season although they are now seven points clear of the drop zone and will look to keep churning out the positive results in order to stay safe.
Our tip is that there will be two goals or less scored throughout this contest, with the Seagulls often short when it comes to the attacking third and they recently played out a goalless draw against Everton which wasn’t particularly entertaining.
We think the most likely outcome is a slender Chelsea win which could be a 1-0 or 2-0 winning scoreline although Under 2.5 Goals looks to be the best value pick.
