Brighton and Everton face off on Monday in an English Premier League showdown at Falmer Stadium. 

Brighton vs Everton Odds

Brighton is the favorite sitting at -255 while Everton is the underdog is sitting at +650. The total in this game sits at 2.5 goals with the over paying out at -175. 

Brighton Betting Preview

Brighton comes into this game sitting in 7th place in the standings having picked up 55 points. On Thursday Brighton faced off against Manchester United and they were able to secure the 1-0 victory. The goal for Brighton came in the 99th minute on a penalty kick. Brighton had 60 percent of the possession and six shots on target. Evan Ferguson is dealing with an injury and is a major doubt for this game. There is a chance he could be back, but it doesn’t seem like they want to rush him back. Pascal Gross missed the game over Manchester United, and now he must prove himself ready for this game. It wouldn’t be shocking if they decide to let Gross sit another game. 

Everton Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Everton who sits in 19th place in the standings having picked up 29 points. Last Monday Everton faced off against Leicester City and they played to a 2-2 draw. Alex Iwobi scored the second goal in the 54th minute. Seamus Coleman is dealing with a ligament injury and he’s going to miss the rest of the season. Ben Godfrey has played well heading into this game, but he’s also dealing with a groin injury and it looks like he could miss this game. MIchael Kearne has had some bad play heading into this game, and now there is a lot of talk about him here. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Everton is dealing with some major issues heading into this game with the injuries and they are going to really struggle again in this game. Brighton is going to score two or three goals, and Everton is going to fail to score a goal. Back Brighton get the job done on the money line. I’m also throwing a few dollars on Brighton -1.5. 

Shane Mickle's Free Pick:Brighton -1.5
