Brighton vs Crystal Palace predictions: Tips, odds and team news
Brighton hosts rival Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday at 3pm (UK time).
Brighton vs Crystal Palace odds
*Odds correct as of 18:30 on February 2
Brighton were shocked in midweek in their 4-0 defeat to Luton, and now they have to pick themselves up ahead of the visit of their biggest rivals. The Seagulls are now winless in their last three since a 4-2 victory over Tottenham and have dropped to eighth in the table, only ahead of Manchester United on goal difference. Their current winless run also included two goalless draws against West Ham and Wolves, now going 42 shots without scoring in the Premier League in January.
Crystal Palace, meanwhile, travel to the Amex with two wins from their last three, putting a bit of distance between themselves and the relegation zone. However, only six points separate Palace and 18th-placed Everton, so they cannot afford to let things slip. After winning their final game of 2023 against Brentford, Crystal Palace were hammered 5-0 by Arsenal to start 2024. However, they came from behind midweek to secure a hard-fought 3-2 victory over Sheffield United.
