Tip Brighton - Everton
Brighton and Hove lost in the dying moments at Aston Villa last week and dropped to 16th in the table. They host Everton who beat West Ham last week to escape the relegation zone and climb to 15th. Brighton are only a point behind their opponents but also only a point above the bottom three. They have only two league wins this season, a win at Watford and the 3-0 home victory over Tottenham. Brighton tried to build on that last week and took the lead at Aston Villa, only to lose 2-1. Home form hasn't been great aside from that win over Tottenham. They struggle for goals too with only nine in nine games. Closer examination shows that six of those nine goals came in their two wins.
Everton beat West Ham last week to end a run of four straight league defeats. That took them out of the bottom three and probably bought manager Marco Silva a bit more time at the club. Now Everton need to correct one of their biggest problems, namely their away form. Everton have only earned one point on the road this season, that was on the opening weekend at Crystal Palace. Only one away league goal has been scored this season in their 3-1 loss at Bournemouth. A bet on under 2.5 goals looks to be the one that can get us as winner.
Key points Brighton - Everton
Everton have only scored one away league goal this season.
Three out of four Everton away league games have had under 2.5 goals scored in them.
Only one of Brighton's four home league games have had over 2.5 goals scored in them.
Three of the last four meetings between these two clubs have had under 2.5 goals in them.
Conclusion Brighton - Everton
A win for either of these clubs would give them some momentum in the Premier League. That's certainly the case for Everton who have made a disappointing start to their season. They won last week but their away form has been causing them problems for a fair while with no wins in their last seven league matches. Both sides are inconsistent when it comes to scoring goals. A bet on under 2.5 goals looks a winner.
