Arsenal have the chance to return to the summit of the Premier League, for a few hours at least, when they take on Brighton at the Emirates on Sunday afternoon. Both teams suffered a minor setback in their previous match, so they will be looking to get back to winning ways. Arsenal and Brighton like to play on the front foot, so this is a game that should offer up plenty of entertainment. Check out my prediction below to find out who it is that I think will go on to claim all three points in this match.

🏆 Arsenal vs Brighton

Arsenal were sitting pretty at the top of the table ahead of last weekend's fixtures, but a 1-0 defeat against Aston Villa coupled with Liverpool beating Palace saw them hand top spot over to Liverpool. Arsenal play before Liverpool this weekend, so they will be looking to pile the pressure on their rivals. The Gunners' home form has been very good this season - they are unbeaten in their previous 11 matches at the Emirates. In this run, they have scored 35 goals, which is an average of 3.18 goals per match.

Brighton have been punching above their spending power in recent seasons, and they are currently sitting in 8th place in the table with 26 points from 16 matches. They will be eying up another top 6 finish, so that they can play in Europe again next season. However, they will need to improve their away form if that is to happen - in their previous 10 away matches, they have picked up just 4 wins. This includes a 6-1 drubbing at Villa Park, a draw at Goodison, and a defeat at Stamford Bridge.

Given the home form of Arsenal and Brighton's away form, I see nothing, but an Arsenal win here. The Seagulls will make a good fist of it like they always do, but I fancy Arsenal to be too strong in the end and come away with a 2-1 victory and three vital points.

My Prediction: 🏆 Arsenal 2 Brighton1 ⚽

💯 Arsenal vs Brighton Match Odds

I am now going to take a look at the odds that some established and new UK betting sites are currently offering for three highly popular football betting markets. These markets are the match winner, both teams to score, and over/under 2.5 goals.

Nowadays, many top sports betting sites offer free bets to those who register with them, and you can find out about the different promos and bonuses that are on offer by clicking on the logos in the tables.

Arsenal vs Brighton: Match Winner Odds

Given Arsenal's unbeaten run at home and Brighton's trouble on the road this season, it should come as no surprise to see that the bookies are favouring the home side to come out on top. You can find the odds in the table below for an Arsenal win, but they are not all that appealing for a single bet. Thus, you might want to think about adding Arsenal to win to an accumulator, if you place such bets.


Arsenal vs Brighton: Both Teams To Score Odds

Arsenal have scored 33 goals in their 16 EPL matches this season, which is a tally that can only be bettered by Liverpool, Manchester City, and Aston Villa. Brighton have also scored 33 goals, so it is clear that neither team has any issues when it comes to finding the back of the net. As a result, the bookies feel that both teams will score in this match, and the odds for this market can be found below:


Arsenal vs Brighton: Over/Under 2.5 Goals Odds

All of the best bookies also share the belief that there will be over 2.5 goals scored in this game. Since I have predicted a 2-1 win for Arsenal, I am in agreement with them. Check out the over/under 2.5 goals odds in the following table.

Over 2.5 Goals1.541.541.531.541.57
Under 2.5 Goals2.262.262.372.202.25

✔️ Arsenal vs Brighton - Betting Tips

It is now time for me to give you some of my top football betting tips for this Arsenal vs Brighton clash.

  • Tip 1: Arsenal to win and BTTS: The match winner odds for Arsenal are too short for my liking, so I do not suggest making a single match bet. Instead, since I see the Gunners winning the match but not keeping Brighton out, I recommend that you bet on Arsenal to win and BTTS. Betiton Sport, at the time of writing, are offering odds of 2.79 for this to happen.
  • Tip 2: Arsenal to win 2-1: If you are searching for a betting option which has higher odds, then you can think about trying to predict the correct score. If you agree with me and think Arsenal will win 2-1, then William Hill currently have odds of 8.50 available.
  • Tip 3: Arsenal to win by 1 goal: If you do not want to predict the correct scoreline, then you might want to bet on the winning margin. I think Arsenal will win by a solitary goal, and you can find odds of 3.50 at Spreadex Sports.
  • Kai Havertz to score: If you want to try and predict a goalscorer, then my recommendation would be to back Havertz to find the back of the net. He has been finding the back of the net frequently, and he will consider himself unlucky not to get an equaliser against Villa. Those who want to back Havertz to score can find odds of 3.35 at Mr. Mega Sports.

1️⃣ Arsenal Update

Arsenal have one of the best squads in the league, so it is not surprising that they are in the title race. They have an attack that has no problem scoring goals and a defence which has conceded just 0.94 goals per Premier League match. They have lost just the two EPL matches this season, which shows you just how hard Mikel Arteta has made them to beat. If they are going to pick up their first Premier League title since 2004, then they need to be winning game against teams such as Brighton.

Arteta has a number of players that he will not be able to call upon for this match, and you can see the Arsenal absentees in the following table:

2️⃣ Brighton Update

Brighton have picked up 7 wins, 5 draws, and 4 losses from the 16 EPL games that they have played this season, which leaves them sitting in 8th place and well in contention to battle it out for one of the lower European places. They have made it through to the knockout stages of the Europa League, so these extra matches might end up having an impact on their performances in the league.

The Seagulls will also be hard opponents for whoever they are facing because they always leave everything out there on the field. You might think that this is an obvious thing to say, but the same cannot be said for many teams - just take a look at Manchester United as of late. While Brighton do score plenty of goals, their main Achilles heel is the fact only two teams outside of the bottom three have conceded more than them.
