The Eagles are unbeaten in their last four matches against this opposition, winning two and drawing two.

In contrast, Graham Potter’s Brighton have enjoyed an excellent start to the campaign after six wins from seven in all competitions and can be backed at 27/20 (2.35) to reclaim bragging rights with a victory on enemy territory.
The last two meetings between this duo at this ground have both resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 11/5 (3.20) on them cancelling each other out once again.

Crystal Palace vs Brighton preview
Although an unusual derby considering the distance between the two clubs, recent encounters have certainly provided the excitement and drama you would expect from a grudge match.
Indeed, last season’s editions were both defined by last-minute goals, with the Seagulls scoring late to earn an away draw in the first meeting before falling victim to a 95th minute Christian Benteke winner in the home game.
It would be no surprise if Monday’s game also took a bit of time to get going considering nine of the last 11 goals scored in games featuring Patrick Vieira’s team have arrived after half-time.
What’s more, the visitors have scored all three of their goals in away games this season after the 70th minute and have only conceded twice prior to the break in seven games so far.
Crystal Palace vs Brighton tips & predictions
All in all odds of 11/10 (2.10) seem like decent value on the majority of the goalmouth action taking place in the second 45 minutes for the fifth meeting in six between Palace and Brighton.
All odds correct at time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
