Brighton host Newcastle United on Saturday evening for the late kick-off in the Premier League as both sides lost last time out.
Brighton vs Newcastle odds
The bookies can’t split Brighton and Newcastle in the odds as they both are priced at 6/4 to win, with the Magpies just edging favouritism if this is their short price to win away from home, while a draw is out to 11/4.

Brighton vs Newcastle predictions
The Seagulls and the Magpies were still flying high before their latest Premier League clashes.
But Brighton ended their 4-1 winning streaks with a loss to the current league leaders, West Ham, losing 3-1.
Newcastle were just about favourites at the weekend in Sunday’s feature game against Liverpool, and were looking likely to win until Darwin Nunez came on and scored a brace.
The Magpies lost despite being a man to the good for most of the match, after taking a lead in the 25th minute and Virgil van Dijk being sent off just three minutes later.
Now they face each other having gone into those games with high promise and high on confidence. It could mean a lot more goals, with both sides being prone to conceding but also with Brighton seeing 14 goals in just three games.
Brighton vs Newcastle betting tips
Newcastle to win, over 2.5 goals 9/4
Newcastle look like they may just get their heads in front of this clash though, looking the stronger of the two sides in terms of defence, which will surely improve after last week’s display in the final few minutes.
Over 2.5 goals is priced singularly at 4/9 odds-on but that boosts the odds with a Newcastle win to a great value bet in 9/4 odds against.
Newcastle were close to shutting up shop against Liverpool at the weekend but Nunez managed to storm through twice which they may not be able to withstand as Brighton’s goalscorers have been very fortuitous this season with goals coming from all over the pitch.
But Newcastle are also capable of getting a few against Brighton, a side they’ve done well against recently. Alexander Isak, Callum Wilson, Anthony Gordon, Harvey Barnes and the likes of Sandro Tonali have all netted already this season and could be in for a haul in the 2023/24 campaign.
Brighton have now lost two of their last three against the Magpies having previously gone nine meetings in a row unbeaten.
Newcastle won in the Premier League Summer Series 2-1 in the summer after winning 4-1 at home in May, but were held to a 0-0 draw in this exact fixture last season.
Dan Burn, Wilson and Bruno Guimaraes scored in their 4-1 victory just a few months ago – with two coming in the 89th and 91st minute, with late drama on the cards yet again.
