Brighton v Everton betting tips: Toffees out to buck historic trend
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
The Seagulls and Toffeemen have both recorded their first Premier League wins and meet at the Amex Stadium, so we look at some Brighton v Everton betting tips.
Brighton maintained their 100 per cent start to the season with a 2-0 home win over Watford, while Everton were twice pegged back by Leeds at Elland Road in an entertaining 2-2 draw.
Saturday’s match, which takes place at the American Express Stadium, Brighton, kicks off at 3pm BST.
Brighton v Everton match odds
Brighton got their Premier League campaign off to the best possible start, taking maximum points at Burnley and then followed up with a cosy home win over Watford last week.
They seek to win their first three league games for just the fourth time in 95 seasons in the Football League.
Graham Potter’s side, who have conceded just one this season – and that was a controversial goal – have found the net twice in each of their two games and are 7/5 to beat Everton in the Brighton v Everton betting tips.
First-half goals from Shane Duffy and Neal Maupay gave them victory over Watford, extending their unbeaten run at the Amex to six games. They have never managed to remain unbeaten in seven at home in the division.
Everton got off the mark with a win over Southampton on opening day, but twice relinquished leads given to them by Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Demarai Gray at Elland Road last weekend as Leeds hit back to earn a point.
Only Liverpool (17) and West Ham (16) have had more shots on target than Everton (14) in the opening two Premier League games so far this season. The Toffees are averaging seven shots on target per game and are 11/5 to win the clash, while the draw is available at 21/10.

Brighton v Everton key battles
How Brighton’s defensive trio Lewis Dunk, Adam Webster and Duffy cope with the guile of Everton’s Brazilian striker Richarlison could be crucial to the outcome.
Everton boss Rafa Benitez has switched the Brazilian to the centre of a three-man midfield in behind Calvert-Lewin and it has paid dividends.
