Match Summary

One to Watch: Glenn Murray

If there was ever a player in this fixture who you should be backing to grab the first goal, it’s Glenn Murray. Murray to score the opening goal of the game is 15/2 and is absolutely the best football betting tip for the weekend with bet365, with them having him the same price for Jurgen Locadia.

His goal record in the Premier League is quite impressive considering his age and the teams he has played for, and while most Premier League previews will focus on Charlie Austin and Danny Ings for Southampton, Glenn Murray will be overlooked once again. He should be backed to score first though, provided you think Brighton can get something from the game.

Southampton vs Brighton Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Mark Hughes is looking for his Southampton side to beat south coast rivals Brighton on Monday night

Two south coast rivals face off in a game that, while early on in the season, could perhaps have huge implications at the business end of the season in a few months time.

Two draws in two games last season plus a 1-0 Saints win a few weeks ago in the League Cup means that Premier League predictions will either have this as a draw, priced at 11/5, or a home win at evens. Brighton to win 2-0 may seem a bit unlikely at their home of their neighbours, but could be worth something at 20/1. 

Looking at goalscorers, Danny Ings has been in good form for the hosts and is at 11/2 to score first, while Charlie Austin is favourite to open the scoring with odds of 9/2.

For Brighton, Glenn Murray is the favourite at 15/2, while key midfield creator Pascal Gross is 10/1. These odds are quite favourable if you favour a score draw, which itself is priced at 15/4.

Predicted Score: Southampton 1 - 1 Brighton
