Fulham vs. Brighton Betting Tips: Brighton and Solly to March on to another three points
There are four Premier League games being shown live on BT Sport on Tuesday evening and we've asked Adam Roberts to preview the match at Craven Cottage between Fulham and Brighton. He's done just that and as usual has picked us out two interesting looking bets for your attention.
Fulham vs. Brighton Tips
With none of the top three in action on Tuesday night, Graham Potter and his Brighton outfit go into this match knowing a win would see them hit the top of the Premier League for the first time in their history. Many thought that the Seagulls may struggle to repeat their 9th placed finish last season, having lost the likes of Marc Cucurella, Yves Bissouma and now Neal Maupay. Potter, however, appears to have installed a superb team mentality and is expecting everyone in the team to contribute more and for them all to chip in with goals. One man who has done that in spades is Pascal Groß, who has scored three goals already this season, including the winner against Leeds on Saturday.
Marco Silva's side have also had a decent enough start, picking up more than a point a game and sitting safe (for now) in 11th spot. Arsenal came from behind to take all three points on Saturday evening, so The Cottagers will be hoping to get back on track against Brighton at home.
Silva is without Harry Wilson and Manor Solomon whilst Potter is missing Adam Lallana, Jakub Moder and Jeremy Sarmiento. Joel Veltman will be a late decision as to whether he is fit enough to start for the Seagulls.
My first selection is for Brighton to continue their march up the table and to take all three points here. Potter is doing an incredible job on the south coast and is enhancing his reputation on a weekly basis. The Seagulls are undefeated in their last nine Premier League games and have only conceded one goal all season in all competitions, highlighting just how well drilled they are at the back.
They will face a different proposition here with the marauding giant Aleksandar Mitrovic up against them, but they have already seen off the likes of Callum Wilson, Cristiano Ronaldo, Rodrigo and Michail Antonio already this campaign so will be confident they can deal with the big Serbian also.
Fulham have won just one of their last 14 Premier League matches and have conceded at least two goals in six of their last seven matches at home in the top flight.
The second pick is for Solly March to have 2+ shots in the match. The 28-year-old Englishman hasn't found the net so far this season but has let off 10 shots in just four matches as well as six shots on target. The winger managed four shots, with three shots on target, last time out at the AMEX against Leeds. For comparison, March had just 20 shots and 10 Sot last campaign, so its immediately apparent just how much more advanced and ambitious he is this term.
The 6/5 on offer at Paddy Power for two shots looks on the large side - he has cleared this line and more in his last three appearances and I also wouldn't put anyone off taking the 11/10 on him to have a shot on target in the match also. He is as short as 2/11 at miserly William Hill to do so. Obviously there is a chance that Potter may rotate his squad here, given the short turnaround times this week, so make sure you cash out if March isn't named in the starting 11.
