The bottom two teams to successfully avoid relegation as per last season’s EPL table, Burnley and Brighton & Hove Albion, are starting the upcoming campaign against each other. After struggling to move away from the bottom positions, these teams survived the test and are now probably aiming for higher achievements. David Coote will be the umpire in the Burnley vs Brighton match, scheduled to play on Saturday, 14th August, at Turf Moor. The two competitive sides are likely to give each other a hard time, making it almost impossible to predict the winner. However, Dyche Sean’s Burnley has impressed in the preseason encounters are the favorites to win.
Although the Clarets recently suffered a 2-0 loss to Cadiz while the likes of Kevin Long and Dale Stephens will miss the match, they are known to be competitive at home. After all, Brighton will not have Ben White, moved to Arsenal, and Danny Welbeck is injured.
Safer Burnley vs Brighton Prediction
From previous head-to-head Burnley against Brighton matches, we can confirm that the 3-way betting tips might not be reassuring. It’s under these circumstances that we opt to highlight other, more promising markets.
Burnley vs Brighton Over/Under prediction
We will expect to celebrate a goal or two, but the two are not the type of EPL teams with consistent records of big goal margins. Therefore, the ideal selection would be “Under 2.5” goals. Again, it is their first game of the season, and we won’t expect a lot of threat-creating action.
Burnley vs Brighton Double Chance prediction
Given that Brighton is the underdog and the unobvious nature of that tip, we see the best way to go with this as 12, home or away, to win.
