Brighton Betting Preview
Brighton comes into this game sitting in 3rd place in the standings having picked up 15 points. Last Sunday, Brighton faced off against AFC Bournemouth and they were able to secure the 3-1 victory. They also played a midweek EFL Cup and they were knocked out by Chelsea 1-0. Brighton had 61 percent of the possession and two shots on target. Adam Lallana is dealing with a minor injury and he’s not going to be able to go in this game. Kaoru Mitoma, Solly March, Joao Pedro, and Danny Welbeck are all expected to play in this game for Brighton.
Aston Villa Betting Preview
Aston Villa sits in sixth place in the standings having picked up 12 points. Last Sunday, Aston Villa faced off against Chelsea and they were able to secure the 1-0 victory. It was Ollie Watkins that scored a goal against the short handed Chelsea team and that was enough for the victory. Aston Villa had 47 percent of the possession and seven shots on target. Leon Bailey suffered a midweek thigh strain and now he’s not going to be able to go in this game. Alex Moreno should be back soon for Aston Villa but it looks like this game is going to be a little too soon for him to return to the team.
Shane’s Free Pick
This game seems like a true toss up, and I am going to stay away from the side. I do think Brighton’s defense is going to be good though and in the last game they gave up only a goal to Chelsea. Aston Villa’s defense is also going to step up and this game is going to stay under the total. Back the under.
