Crystal Palace v Brighton betting tips: Seagulls flying high
Preview and odds for Monday’s Premier League clash
The Seagulls and the Eagles is a cracking rivalry and on Monday they square off in the Premier League, so we look at the odds to find some Crystal Palace v Brighton betting tips.
Brighton have started the season well and earned a notable win over Leicester last weekend, while Palace failed to back up their thumping win over Tottenham by losing 3-0 at Liverpool.
Monday’s match, which takes place at Selhurst Park, kicks off at 8pm and is live on Sky Sports.
Crystal Palace v Brighton match odds
Palace sit 14th in the Premier League table with five points after five games, having beaten Tottenham 3-0 and drawn at West Ham and at home to Brentford.
They have been efficient under Patrick Vieira, scoring five goals from just 11 shots in total, and therefore have the best ratio of goals to shots in the division.
The Eagles have kept a clean sheet in both their home games this term and they will look to make it three consecutive home shutouts to start the season, which they last managed in 1979-80.
Brighton sit fourth, having won four of their last five Premier League games, suffering only one defeat – a 2-0 reverse at home to Everton – and are looking for three consecutive league victories for the first time since October 2018.
While they have won both of their Premier League away games so far this season, they have never won three in a row on the road in the top flight. Graham Potter’s side are 8/5 to win and buck that trend.

Crystal Palace v Brighton key battles
Brighton have been relatively tight at the back this term and have faced the fewest shots of any team other than Manchester City. They are 9/5 to keep a clean sheet.
They also could cause problems at set-pieces for the hosts, who have conceded three times from corners this season. Brighton have created 11 chances from 26 corners this term, the highest ratio in the division.
The visitors will fear Wilfried Zaha, however. He has scored seven goals against Albion in his career and has netted in the last four games against them. He is 23/10 to score at any stage.
