Football Betting Tips for Brighton vs. Newcastle; The Seagulls and the Magpies meet on the South Coast in the Premier League evening kick-off this Saturday. Both teams will be looking to bounce back from disappointing losses last weekend in what is a tough match to call from a betting perspective
- Who - Brighton vs. Newcastle
- Competition - 2023/24 Premier League

Roberto De Zebri and his Brighton team must be wondering what went wrong in their 3-1 home defeat to West Ham last Saturday. According to the stats, the Seagulls had 25 shots on goal (10 on target) and a whopping 78% possession against the Hammers. It’s no wonder the club signed Barcelona forward Ansu Fati on loan for the season in the following days.
The fixtures don’t get any easier for Eddie Howe and his Newcastle side either. After a visit to the Etihad that ended in a 1-0 defeat, followed by a 2-1 home loss to Liverpool, a road trip to Brighton isn’t ideal for the Toon Army.
The Liverpool loss would have been hard to take. The Reds played over an hour with ten men after Virgil van Dijk saw red after 28 minutes. So, to lose 2-1 to two late goals from Darwin Nunez would have been a bitter pill to swallow.

Brighton vs. Newcastle Prediction
Brighton vs. Newcastle Betting Tips
The match is too close to call, so we’ve gone for the draw in our prediction. But the truth is, a 2-1 win to either team wouldn’t surprise us here. 2-1 to Brighton is 8/1, and 2-1 to Newcastle is 9/1.
But at 4/9 on over 2.5 goals, the best football betting sites have priced this market too short for us to bet on in a single. The odds of 2/5 on both teams to score isn’t helpful either.
We expect Newcastle to be under the cosh a bit here. In the Bet Builder markets, Joelinton is 4/9 to commit two fouls or more, and Kieran Trippier is 7/5 to do the same.
This gives us a football betting double of 3.23, just over 2/1. For a £10 bet, this pays £32.30.
