To clear the air, it's obvious that City is the heavily favored side. The Manchester squad has won all of the most recent 9 games vs Brighton, and currently, the odds for their win are the highest they've been for over 10 years in this match-up. This means that Brighton's chances are at a peak right now. In its' last 10 games, the hosts have won over Newcastle, Southampton, and Leeds and have drawn with Chelsea and West Ham. After seeing how the Newcastle – Man City game went, Brighton has a real chance, especially if Scott Carson starts at goal for the Citizens.
BTTS – No
As we already stated, this match-up is very one-sided, and the historic stats show this. Head-to-head Brighton has managed to score in only 3 of their last 10 meetings, and could never get a second goal. That’s why we are going for the BTTS – No bet at the decent odds of 5/6.
Under 2.5 Goals
Although City usually wins easily versus Brighton, their games do not produce as many goals. Only 4 of their last 10 meetings have had over 2.5 goals, that’s why we are backing the more frequent and also the higher payout outcome.

Will the Newcastle – Man City goal fiesta repeat?
Having nothing to fight for, and giving Scott Carson a start out of respect, put City on the ropes in the last round versus the Magpies. Newcastle had the lead on two occasions, but eventually, the Citizens managed to close the game out 4-3. Let's be honest though, if this match was played in the middle of the campaign, the result would've most likely been a 1-0 City win.
The scenario is likely to repeat against Brighton as well. The home side has nothing to play for, being 11 points clear of the relegation zone with just two games left. However, winning or even drawing versus the League Champions would certainly boost the team’s morale and will help close this season’s page on a good note.
