Brighton v Leicester betting tips: Foxes have upper hand

Brighton v Leicester betting tips and odds

Leicester must put Thursday’s Europa League disappointment behind them as they make the trip to the south coast to face in-form Brighton on Sunday when both teams are priced at 17/10 to win.

The Foxes let slip a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Napoli during which midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was shown a second yellow card in the final minute.

City have an excellent Premier League record against Sunday’s opponents so let’s check out some of the options in our Brighton v Leicester betting tips.

Match Odds

Leicester finished agonisingly outside the top four for the second season in a row but are below Brighton in the table following two wins and two defeats in their first four matches.

The Foxes have never lost to the Seagulls in the Premier League era, winning six of their eight meetings, so it is slightly surprising to see the layers find them impossible to split.

Graham Potter’s side have won three of their four games but they will have much sterner tests than Burnley, Watford, Everton and Brentford, with Sunday’s match coming into that category.

Both of Leicester’s wins came by one-goal margins and they are 13/4 for a repeat while we go 12/5 on a victory for the visitors and under 3.5 goals.

That said, manager Brendan Rodgers picked a strong team for Thursday’s clash with Napoli which saw Jannik Vestergaard, Harvey Barnes and Ryan Bertrand in the starting line-up, so with only three days to recover a draw cannot be ruled out at 21/10 as one of Sunday’s Brighton v Leicester betting tips.

All four of Brighton’s games have produced three goals or fewer so a 0-0 or 1-1 draw is available at 11/4 while a goal in each half and the points to be split is 5/1 as one of our #GetAPrice specials.

Talking Tactics

Rodgers played Kelechi Iheanacho, Patson Daka and Barnes in attack on Thursday in a 4-3-3 formation in which goalscorer Ayoze Perez played on the right in a midfield also comprising Boubakary Soumare and Ndidi.

Jamie Vardy stepped off the bench in the final two minutes, so should be restored to the starting line-up, possibly in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with Youri Tielemans, James Maddison and Caglar Soyuncu also likely to be in the side from the off.

Brighton centre-back Adam Webster limped off with a hamstring injury in the first half of Saturday’s 1-0 win at Brentford and was replaced by Jakub Moder, so the Pole could line up in a back three alongside Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy, with Neal Maupay ploughing a lone furrow up front.

Goalscorer Odds

Vardy is expected to start on Sunday and is the 9/2 favourite to break the deadlock or 15/8 to be on the scoresheet while Seagulls striker Maupay is priced at 5/1 and 2/1 in the same markets.

Barnes was on target on Thursday and is 14/5 to score in back-to-back games, with Maddison 3/1 to bag his first of the season as one of our Brighton v Leicester betting tips.

Leandro Trossard netted a late winner for the Seagulls last weekend and is 17/2 to grab the game’s opener or 3/1 to score. Alex Mac Allister is slightly higher at 10/1 and 4/1 in those options.
