Brighton vs Leicester Odds, Preview & Analysis
When? Sunday 4th September 2022, 14:00 BST
Where? Amex Stadium, Brighton
Broadcast: Sky Sports Premier League and Main Event
Latest result: Leicester 1-1 Brighton
Leicester take a trip to the Amex Stadium to face a Brighton side full of energy and quality. They have had an excellent start to the season, and currently sit in fourth. Graham Potter’s side said goodbye to some real quality players this summer including Marc Cucurella and Yves Bissouma, but they’re not missing them at all.
Leicester also lost some stars, Ademola Lookman returned to RB Leipzig from his loan spell before signing for Atalanta in a £8 million deal. They also said goodbye to long-term servant Kaspar Schmeichel who joined Nice for less than a million pounds and young centre-back Wesley Fofana who signed for Chelsea in a £72 million deal. They struggled to replace these players and have a much weaker squad than they started with.
Which is why they’re sat rock bottom of the Premier League after five games. They are yet to win a game and have drawn just once. They’ve been beaten by Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal and Southampton with their one draw coming versus Brentford in a 2-2 draw.
Brendan Rodgers’ side need to take all three points against Brighton and build from it, or they could find themselves in a really dire situation. Brighton are no easy gig though and they’ll need to give their all to get a result.
Brighton vs Leicester Odds: Our picks
I can see this game ending in a draw. Brighton are quality but Leicester will be more than motivated to claim their first points of the season. Brendan Rodgers has a strong connection with his players and they will play for him. That said, I still can’t see it being enough for them to get the win, Brighton mean business this season.
888Sport have a draw at 5/2 for this one, but we are going to boost this with a bet builder:
- Match result: Draw
- Both teams to score? Yes
- 9.5+ corners in 90 mins
This little bet builder produces a lovely 6/1 odd which is very enticing. If you’re looking to back either side, the Brighton v Leicester odds are quite spread. Brighton are the heavy favourites in this one, ⅚ to win while Leicester are at 33/10 (3.3/1). With form and odds stacked against them, we could see a vintage Leicester City display come Sunday.
