Leeds United Betting Preview
Leeds United currently sits in 17th place having picked up 22 points so far this season. Last Saturday Leeds United faced off against Chelsea, and they were defeated 1-0. Leeds United had only 42 percent of the possession and they only managed one shot on goal. Two games ago against Fulham in the FA Cup, they were defeated 2-0. The offense has been an issue heading into this game and they need to find a way to get the offense going here. Rodrigo, Stuart Dallas, and Adam Forshaw are all dealing with long-term injuries and aren’t going to be able to go in this game.
Brighton Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Brighton who sits in 8th place in the standings having picked up 38 points. On March 4th against West Ham, Brighton scored four goals and that led to the victory. Brighton had 66 percent of the possession and nine shots on target. Alexis Mac Alister scored in the 18th minute, and they scored three more goals in the second half. Adam Lallana and Jakub Moder are dealing with long term injuries and they aren’t going to be able to go in this game. In this game, Brighton needs to find a way to get the offense going early, and try to really put the pressure on the Leeds United defense.
Shane’s Free Pick
Leeds United’s offense has been awful heading into this game, and it’s not going to get any easier in this game. Brighton scored four goals in the last game and they are going to find the back of the net a couple of times. Brighton is going to score at least three goals here, and that is going to be enough to get the job done. I’m also throwing a few dollars on Brighton -1.5 because they should win this game by a couple of goals.
