Brighton v Newcastle betting tips: Seagulls bid to keep fine record
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
The Seagulls hope to continue their good run against the Magpies when they meet in the Premier League and we look at the odds to find some Brighton v Newcastle betting tips.
Brighton bounced back from a home defeat by champions Manchester City to hold Liverpool to a draw at Anfield last week while Newcastle are still searching for their first win after losing 3-0 at home to Chelsea.
Saturday’s match, which takes place at the Amex Stadium, kicks off at 5.30pm and is live on BT Sport 1.
Brighton v Newcastle match odds
Brighton are enjoying their best start to a top-flight campaign, their 16 points (W4 D4 L2) the most they have compiled in 10 games.
Two defeats – both at home to Everton and Manchester City – is their joint-fewest at this stage of a top-flight campaign, equalling their record in 1981-82 (W3 D5 L2).
Graham Potter’s side are a heady eighth in the table with three games against struggling sides upcoming – they travel to Aston Villa and host Leeds after this clash.
The Seagulls, who came from behind with goals from Enock Mwepu and Leandro Trossard to draw 2-2 with Liverpool at Anfield last weekend, are 3/5 to beat Newcastle.
Newcastle are second from bottom and have drawn four of their 10 games (L6).
They have yet to win and come into this on the back of a 3-0 home defeat by Chelsea. They are already six points from safety and alarm bells are starting to ring.
The Magpies, who are 19/4 to win, have never had a longer winless start to a league season – they last went more than 10 league games without a win between December 2007 and March 2008 (13 games).
Only Norwich have conceded more goals (25) than the Magpies (23).
They are also one of only two teams still looking to keep a clean sheet in the competition this season, along with Watford.
The draw is on offer at odds of 14/5 in the Brighton v Newcastle betting tips.

Brighton v Newcastle head-to-head
Brighton have never lost in eight previous Premier League meetings with Newcastle (W4 D4), with the Seagulls conceding just one goal in those eight games.
Potter’s men won both Premier League meetings against Newcastle 3-0 last season – the previous six games between the sides in the competition had produced just four goals combined!
It is 5/6 that fewer than three total goals will be scored this time in the Brighton v Newcastle betting tips.
Indeed, the Seagulls have lost just two of the last 16 meetings with the Magpies in all competitions (W8 D6).
Brighton v Newcastle key battles
Newcastle have only scored with one of their 96 shots in the Premier League against Brighton.
That is a remarkable stat and one that will need to be improved upon if the Magpies have any chance of victory.
Callum Wilson is their likeliest hope.
He is averaging a goal or an assists every 50 minutes at the Amex Stadium in the Premier League (two goals, two assists), scoring in both starts there when playing for Bournemouth.
He is 2/1 to score at any time.
