Competition: Premier League
Market: Brighton win
Odds: 7/10 @ 888sport
Smelling a real chance to make a return to winning ways on Saturday evening, Brighton will welcome a struggling Newcastle to the Amex this weekend.
Starting with the hosts, while Brighton might have struggled to pick up maximum points recently, they will be boosted by a stunning comeback last weekend. Making the trip to Champions League outfit Liverpool and snatching a point after going 2-0 down, Graham Potter’s side have continued to gain a host of plaudits since opening the 2021/22 campaign. Opening Saturday’s contest still firmly battling it out in the European chase, the one-time Swansea boss should also be boosted by an eye-catching record against this weekend’s guests. Including landing a 3-0 romp the last time Newcastle visited the Amex back in March, the Seagulls collected back-to-back Premier League wins against the relegation scrappers. While Brighton might have failed to win any of their last six domestic contests, they will be smelling a golden chance on the south coast.
As for the visitors, with it looking like Eddie Howe will finally be announced as their new boss, Newcastle fans will be desperate for the former Bournemouth manager to hit the ground running. Firmly in the midst of what has become a Premier League nightmare, the Magpies are remarkably yet to pick up a single top-flight victory from their opening 10 attempts. Last seen getting hit with a 3-0 drumming against Chelsea on home soil and with just 21% possession to their name, Saturday’s guests could face another stern test this weekend. With just a single point from any of their last four top-flight matchups, they have also continued to gain a reputation for their rather glaring issues at the back. Suffering back-to-back losses against Brighton last season, we’re backing a similar home win here.
Bet: Brighton 7/10 to beat Newcastle in Saturday’s Premier League battle @ 888sport
