Competition: Premier League
Market: Brighton to beat Stoke
Odds: 6/4 @ 888sport
The international break brought some hugely entertaining matches with the World Cup playoffs providing some incredible drama. Indeed, Italy failed to make it to the World Cup following their defeat across two legs at the hands of Sweeden. While this game was incredibly interesting, the average fan will be very pleased to see their favourite clubs back in action, with league football providing something that an international game does not. With this in mind, Brighton host Stoke on Monday in the Premier League.
Brighton have been in fine form this season and they look anything but the Championship-bound team that many had them tipped as. They currently sit in eighth-place in the league following four wins and three draws, meaning Brighton have accumulated 15 points already. This has allowed the newly-promoted side to put six points between themselves and West Ham in 18th, while they are just seven points short of fourth-placed Chelsea. Of course, survival is their main objective, but the fans will be enjoying their early-season success.
Stoke have struggled massively this season, taking just 12 points from their 11 games. Three wins, three draws and five defeats means that Mark Hughes’ men are teetering above the relegation zone, with just three points separating them from West Ham in 18th. 13 goals scored shows they have not been prolific going forward, while they have conceded 22 goals already, as many as bottom-side Crystal Palace. With this in mind, we are backing Brighton to win with odds of 6/4 from 888sport.
