Brighton betting (2020 updated)
The 2020/21 season is the fourth consecutive season in the Premier League for Albion following a 34-year absence.
Though it’s good to see the Seagulls successfully climb out of the mud they found themselves in at the turn of the millennium, their prospects for the coming season seem dubious. Survival seems to be the extent of their ambitions for now, which may limit your Brighton and Hove betting options.
That said, coach Graham Potter brought about a noted improvement over his predecessor. Between 2018/19 and 2019/20, Albion climbed up two spots for a 15th placement, no longer avoiding relegation by a hairpin.
With 6.00 odds to be relegated, their place in the top-flight seems secure for now. Conversely, a bottom-half finish is also pretty much guaranteed at odds of 1.12.
Brighton Key Players
The first name that pops into anyone’s head when talking about Brighton’s players is centre-back and team captain Lewis Dunk. The praise he receives regularly is there for a reason, and his flexibility works great with Potter’s tactics.
Namely, Potter doesn’t like to stick to one formation or strategy. This brings forth various approaches, which has received mixed results so far. On one hand, their table position is improving. On the other, their performance was actually below most analysts’ expectations. Similarly, the importance of individual players and their roles are just as fluid.
Still, the attacking side seems to almost always consist of the trio of Neal Maupay, Tariq Lamptey, and Leandro Trossard. Anthony Knockaert left for Fulham in the transfer window, though, leaving Potter with fewer options on the wings.
That said, the midfield received some much-needed attention over the summer. Fresh arrivals include Jakub Moder and Liverpool’s Adam Lallana.
Usually referred to as the A23 derby or the M23 derby, matches between Brighton and Crystal Palace make for a feisty rivalry which burst onto the scene in the late 1970s. The unusual nicknames of this derby come from motorway roads connecting Sussex with south London.
Brighton and Crystal Palace had been the founding members of the Football League Third Division but their rivalry did not truly arise to prominence before both sides fast-tracked their way into the First Division during the 70s. Matches between these two rivals would bring plenty of on-pitch excitement. Similarly, it would often turn into incident-filled encounters. Last of them occurred in December 2018 when a melee ensued over penalty disputes. Shane Duffy even threw a head butt on Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt leaving Brighton to record a compelling 3-1 win with only ten players on the pitch.
The year 1901 marks the birth of Brighton & Hove Albion. It wasn’t until 1920, however, that Brighton became a member of the Football League. The Seagulls are not among the most successful clubs in the country and the FA Cup final in 1983 – and a loss to Manchester United – to this date stands as arguably the most notable result in history. During their time, Brighton have changed the total of five different stadiums. They first played their home matches at County Cricket Ground during their formative year. The Goldstone Ground was Brighton’s home for five years, before the club moved to Priestfield Stadium. Withdean Stadium was the place Brighton spent 12 years at, before moving to their current home – Falmer Stadium.
Historically speaking, the club’s main colours are blue and white, with a striped combination being the most frequent occurrence on their shirt. The nickname – Seagulls – is only natural, knowing that this bird is the focal point of the club’s crest.
