Kick-off: 1500, 11/09/2021
Stadium: Brentford Community Stadium
Brighton’s positive start to the season was curtailed slightly when Everton visited the Amex before the international break, but they have the chance to get back on track as they travel to Premier League new boys Brentford.
Thomas Frank’s side are yet to taste defeat in the top flight, taking five points from their opening three games, and just about shade the betting.
However, we like the look of the visitors to take home the three points at 9/5 in our Brentford vs Brighton betting tips.
A Look At Brentford’s Betting Odds
There is a lot to like about the way the hosts have approached their first foray into the top division and, following two draws on the road, they return to their Community Stadium home looking to build on an impressive opening victory there against Arsenal.
Talisman Ivan Toney bagged his first Premier League goal in the 1-1 draw at Villa Park last time and there could be more to come from the 25-year-old.
Meanwhile, Bryan Mbeumo has started in all three league fixtures and will be hoping to add to the EFL Cup goal he notched up against Forest Green Rovers.
Brentford have proven they can more than hold their own and will be wanting to pick up every point possible in order to extend their stay in the Premier League.
With that in mind, they may look to keep things tight and, with all six league games featuring these two sides having a maximum of three goals, under 2.5 at 8/15 appeals from the Brentford vs Brighton odds.
Last Brentford line-up: Raya, Henry, Pinnock, Jansson, Ajer, Norgaard, Mbeumo, Janelt, Canos, Ghoddos, Toney.
Brentford defender Frank Onyeka is back in training following his positive Covid-19 test, but Mads Bech Sorensen (knee) and Josh Dasilva (hip) both continue their recovery.
A Look At Brighton’s Betting Odds
Graham Potter’s side have added well-needed goals to their resolute defence as they look to make the leap from relegation candidates to a solid Premier League outfit.
French forward Neal Maupay remains at the club having been linked with a move away from the south coast and the 25-year-old has hit the target in both of the Seagulls’ victories versus Burnley and Watford.
Up until the defeat to Everton, Adam Webster, Lewis Dunk and Shane Duffy had formed Brighton’s back three, but it will be interesting to see if new signing Marc Cucurella heads straight into the defensive ranks following his move to the Amex.
Albion beat the Hornets via a 2-0 scoreline and 11/1 for the same result here is our final Brentford vs Brighton prediction.
Last Brighton line-up: Sanchez, Webster, Dunk, Duffy, Bissouma, Mac Allister, Gross, Lallana, Moder, Maupay, Trossard.
Jurgen Locadia is in contention having recently returned to the club following a loan spell with FC Cincinnati, but Dan Burn (knee) and Tariq Lamptey (hamstring) remain out.
