Brighton vs. Manchester United Picks
(2u) Manchester United to Win and Under 4.5 Goals @ -145
As far as Project Restart is concerned, it’s so far, so good for Graham Potter and his side.
Not only has Brighton taken four points from their two tough games against Arsenal and Leicester, but results have very much gone their way in regard to the sides below them.
The Seagulls aren’t safe, but a positive result in another tricky game—this time against Manchester United—will see them take another big step toward safety.
United has looked pretty good themselves. A demolition of Sheffield United, a creditable draw with Spurs and an extra-time winner against Norwich in the FA Cup is what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has under his belt post-restart, and while he’ll be expecting three points on Tuesday, it’s a fixture which has traditionally caused problems for United.
Brighton has won their last two matches against Manchester United at The Amex, although the absence of a home crowd will seriously dent the Seagulls’ hopes this time around.
Furthermore, United was in disarray the last time they visited Brighton, and it at least feels like Solskjaer has at least sorted them out defensively, leaving the dangerous front men to do their thing without running the risk of being outscored; something United has been guilty of in the past.
Brighton has suddenly turned into a side who are quite hard to beat (succumbing in just one of their last seven games), and while I can see them causing the visitors problems, United will ultimately be too good with the fan-less playing field levelled.
David de Gea has kept clean sheets in five of his last seven matches, while Brighton has seen under 2.5 goals in five of their last six.
This’ll be more competitive than many are thinking, so an away win and under 4.5 goals at +145 looks a fairly solid value bet.
