Brighton vs Cardiff: Prediction

It is extremely difficult to pick an outright winner here with either sides coming on the back of losing streaks. Brighton’s home record this season is nothing to write about, so do Cardiff’s exploits on the road, thus 1×2 option must be avoided here.

The safest option for punters is over 1.5 full-time goals in this game, since 69% of Brighton’s and Cardiff’s 73% games in the top tier produced ending up with 2 or more goals.

Meantime, both teams to score priced at 2.20 odd is a value bet, considering 3-points is at stake for either sides to stay in Premier League next season.

Brighton vs Cardiff Betting Tips

  • Over 1.5 full-time goals @ 1.45 (5/11) odd
