Brighton vs Grimsby Prediction

Brighton have a phenomenal h2h record against this rival, and they are also a team going after a top-five finish in the English Premier League – the toughest domestic league in Europe. Note that they also won five of their past six appearances at home.

On the other hand, Grimsby are part of the League Two, the fourth tier in English football. They are struggling to show consistency even there, and on top of all that, they have a worrying h2h record against this opponent.

As such, a -2.5 Asian Handicap on Brighton would be a good pick at 2.00 odd.

Going on, they scored three or more goals in 100% of h2h clashes in the past three decades at this venue, barring a single game. They also scored five goals from their past two home games, while Grimsby have just two clean sheets on the road since September.
