Brighton v Leeds betting tips: Whites’ worries increasing
Odds and preview for Saturday’s Premier League match
Leeds are looking anxiously over their shoulders after several results went against them last weekend and we have studied the odds to find some Brighton v Leeds betting tips.
The Whites were the only team in the bottom seven to lose last time out and start the weekend just two points above the relegation zone.
Saturday’s match at the Amex Stadium kicks off at 5.30pm and is live on Sky Sports.
Brighton v Leeds match odds
Brighton have gone seven matches without a win but have been priced up as firm favourites to get back on track at 21/20.
They looked set to pick up a point at Aston Villa last weekend but the deadlock was broken by Ollie Watkins in the 84th minute before Tyrone Mings added a late second.
That was only a third defeat of the season and Brighton have drawn five of their last seven matches, with the points being shared again here priced at 5/2.
Leeds have been competitive in recent weeks at least and their last eight matches have either been drawn or settled by a one-goal margin.
They took a first-half lead through Dan James at Tottenham on Sunday but struggled after the break and were beaten 2-1 after goals from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Sergio Reguilon.
Brighton v Leeds head-to-head
Leeds impressed in their first season back in the Premier League but had no joy against Brighton, who won both meetings.
Neal Maupay’s first-half goal secured a 1-0 win for the Seagulls at Elland Road and they were 2-0 winners at home, with Pascal Gross converting a first-half penalty before Danny Welbeck made the points safe in the 79th minute.
Brighton have won eight of the last nine meetings and seven of those were to nil, which is 13/5 in the Brighton v Leeds odds.
At least one team has failed to find the net in the previous five contests and ‘no’ in the both teams to score market can be backed at 21/20.
Brighton v Leeds key battles
Leeds have been missing key players and those absences are taking their toll, with Patrick Bamford, Raphinha and Rodrigo all absent at Spurs.
Nineteen-year-old Joe Gelhardt led the line as he started a Premier League game for the first time and is 11/2 to score first here.
Brighton’s aerial threat at set-pieces could be a problem for the Leeds defence, who have often looked vulnerable in this area under Bielsa.
