Manchester United - Brighton & Hove Albion betting tips and odds

Kickoff starts at 13:30 on 18/12/2021 played @ The National Stadium refereed by Stuart Attwell

A quick look at the betting odds with some of the biggest bookmakers online is enough to tell you who the favourites are. Priced at 1.62, a home win seems the obvious choice. An upset is not quite impossible, mind you, which adds a small degree of risk but is ultimately food increasing profits.

With a price of 6.00 on an away win among most online sportsbooks, it’s clear Brighton & Hove Albion will likely not fare well against Manchester United. Even a draw seems to be too optimistic for the away team.

Man. Utd supporters had reasons to feel optimistic last round even though the team was playing away, but that game didn’t quite pan out. The two teams were tied at both halftime and the final whistle, marking a rather unremarkable : draw.

Brighton are coming on the back of a narrow home defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers. The match could have gone either way, but the opposition displayed better form by grabbing an early lead and maintaining it until the 0:1 finish.

The Red devils’s past two matches only feature a goal or less each. As such, you may want to consider an Under 2.5 bet – or even Under 1.5, if you’re feeling confident.

The previous two matches Albion played at home ended without much excitement. Neither featured more than a single goal.

The home team is currently 6th in the standings, leaving plenty of room for moving both up and down. A win here seems likely and will be a great start towards the 1 point needed to get into the Europa League qualifying spots.

The betting odds are clearly in the hosts’ favour, and the last time they clashed with Brighton things went their way. In fact, they snagged a decisive victory with an advantage of more than two goals.

The hosts went through a slew of unfortunate injuries recently, rendering some of their players unavailable for the match this Saturday. Nemanja Matić, Edinson Cavani, Anthony Martial, Raphaël Varane will not be playing, though the team is still considered likely to win.

If you’re feeling confident, a Draw/Home wager in the Half Time/Full Time market is the way to go. It’s a fairly risky move, but likely the best way to get some value out of the match this Saturday.
