Places where you can bet on Brighton & Hove Albion
There are a couple of online bookmakers where you can bet on this team, but still not every sportsbook will be as good as the next one.
Types of bets fans can place on Brighton & Hove Albion
Bookmarkers provide a wide range of different bets when it comes to Brighton & Hove Albion. For starters you can start by placing an outright bet, or you can opt to bet on only one of its matches.
Fans can place outright bets on Brighton & Hove, which means not placing any stake on a single match, but rather on the outcome of the entire season of the league. In most cases, bookmarkers provide bets such as Brighton & Hove Albion to win the Premier League Season of 2017/2018. These sorts of bets are typically placed prior to the start of the season, but certain bookmarkers can still offer outright options even if the season is already underway.
Full Time Result Betting
Whenever you place a bet on a full time result, you will be staking your cash on which team will win or if the match will end in a draw.
On the other hand, a rather interesting variation when it comes to this sort of bet is the double chance bet, which allows you to place a bet based on the prediction that a team will win or draw at full time.
Betting on Goals
Online bookmarkers typically offer a host of different options if you wish to bet on goals. For instance, you can have the option of predicting the exact score, total match goals, or total team goals.
Another option is to bet on both teams to score (BTTS), which you will only win if both teams manage to score before the end of the match. This is regardless of how many goals are scored or who wins the match. This is usually a good bet to play when Brighton & Hove Albion is scheduled to play against an opposing team of similar strength.
Betting on an alternative goal line option is pretty much like a variation of the normal goal line betting. Whenever you place this sort of bet, there are usually three possible outcomes; under, over, and exact. If you are able to predict the exact number, your stake will be considered as a push, and you will get your cash back. This kind of betting is quite similar to Asian Handicaps.
Certain bookmarkers also offer a split bet on alternative goal. For instance, if you happen to place some stake on Brighton & Hove Albion over 2.5 and 3 goals, this will mean that you are playing two bets, with one half being that the team will score more 2.5 goals and the other is for is for it to score not less than 3 goals.
Some of the more risky bets are the scorecast bets or wincast bets. This is because when you place a scorecast bet, you are basically placing two bets in one. First off, you need to predict the player who is going to score the first or final goal, and also the correct score. A good example of a scorecast bet would be a bet like Brighton Hove to win with 2-1 and Glenn Murray to score the first goal.
When it comes to a wincast bet, you will only place your stake on a player to score anytime, and their team to win the match. As you can see, this makes them a little bit less risky than a scorecast bet. However, the quotes for a wincast bet tend to be much lower.
Asian Handicap Bets
This sort of bet can be in the form of a double or single handicap. In the case of a single handicap a team is presumed to win by a certain margin of goals. This is then what will be subtracted from the final result in order to determine the winner. There is also the alternative of a Draw No Bet in which case there is no handicap, and all the stakes are refunded in case the match ends in a draw. For a double handicap game, there are two different forms of handicap involved, and the stake is divided in half between them.
Betting on Corners
Betting on corners has become a rather popular trend over the past few years. Aside from offering bettors with the opportunity to take a advantage of a bookmakers lack of knowhow or attention to small details. Also, the fluctuation of live corners is another reason why sharp bettors often prefer this sort of market.
Another point to note is that betting on corners in soccer is quite different from other markets like handicap or 1X2. This is because the outcome of any match may correlate to the corner count for either side, but is not always the case. Since soccer has the possibility of showcasing low scores, underdog victories and draws are often much easier to come by.
An underdog team may sneak a 1-0 win or hold on best they can to 0=0 draw. However, each team’s corner counts and are often more reliable in terms of beforehand game expectations. After evaluating what may influence the number of corners in a match and previous statistics, betting on corners will most likely prove to be a more alluring option for bettors.
Betting on Red and Yellow Cards
The fact is that betting on bookings is one of the most reliable, but regularly overlooked soccer betting markets. While a significant number of bettors will prefer to go straight to match predictions with only the team’s reputation in mind. Very few people will use this sort of information to make bookings.
One of the main obstacles may be the varying approach different bookies take towards the card markets. Odds will not be offered on totals before each game and the method of coming up with the total changes also differs based on the bookie.

Brighton & Hove Albion’s History
Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. is a professional football club that is based in Brighton and Hove in East Sussex. Many of its fans more commonly refer to the football club simply as Brighton. Brighton F.C. is set to take part in the (EPL) English Premier League in the 2017-2018 season. Brighton is currently hosting a number of matches at its 30,750-capacity American Express (Amex) Community Stadium. The football club will make its debut at the Premier League after it earned its automatic promotion from the English Football League (EFL) Championship.
Many of Brighton’s fans have fondly nicknamed the team ‘Albion’ or ‘Seagulls’. Historically, Brighton has played most of its major matches in white and blue stripes. This however changed briefly to an all-white attire in the 70s and plain blue in the 80s during a period when the club witnessed its most successful efforts. Many observers regard the Crystal Palace Football Club as Brighton’s chief rival even though their training grounds are more than 40 miles apart.
The Brighton club football club was established in 1901 and it played its debuting professional football in the Southern League (now known as the Evo-Stik League) before 1920 when they were promoted to the Football League. The club saw some of its best performances between 1979 and 83 when it competed in the First Division. It was later however relegated from the league’s top division after it lost to Manchester United F.C. during the FA Cup Final in 1983.
In 97 and 98, Brighton narrowly avoided relegation from the Football League, back to the conference, after going through a period of poor management by its officials. Following a boardroom takeover and a series of successful promotions, Brighton was able to avoid liquidation and even regain its position in the 2nd level of English football in 2002. After its successful return to the second tier, Brighton FC played in the 3rd and 2nd tiers of English football up until the end of the 2016-2017 football season when it earned its promotion to the Premier League. The April 17th promotion marks the first time that the club has made it to the Premier League in its long history. It also marks the end of its three-decade absence from top English football.
The Brighton and Crystal Palace FC’s Rivalry
The M23 derby, alternatively known as the Brighton and Crystal Palace FC rivalry, is a derby between the English teams Crystal Palace and Brighton & Hove Albion F.C. The M23 nickname comes from the M23 motorway that runs from south London and Sussex.
The two teams began their rivalry back in the 40s and 50s. Their rivalry however, intensified when both teams improved themselves and rose from the Third Division all the way to the First. This rise by the two teams was attributed to the guidance and support of young and ambitious managers in both sides. Crystal Palace was the only professional football club nearest to Brighton until 2011 when Crawley Town FC was elevated to the Football League. Crawley Town’s biggest rival just like Brighton FC, is another team in London known as AFC Wimbledon.
In a way, Brighton and Crystal Palace are almost evenly matched. They have both recorded 37 wins and 24 draws. Crystal Palace has won 32 league games while Brighton 35. Brighton FC has won 2 cup games while Crystal Palace 5.
The two teams were both founding clubs of the 3rd tier of the 1920 English football league, Football League 3rd Division after they were transferred from the Southern Football League along with a number of other football clubs. Brighton and Crystal Palace had played against each on a number of matches as far as 1906 while still in the Southern League. The two clubs rivalry however became heated up when they played again each other 2 times in a period of about 12 years. These matches included the memorable 1951 back-to-back matches on Christmas and Boxing Day. The rivalry finally became full blown towards the late 70s.
One of the possible reasons for a full-blown rivalry in the late 70s was that both football clubs had set their eyes on an elevation from the 3rd Division. At the time, Crystal Palace was managed by Malcolm Allison while Brighton was managed by Peter Taylor. A crowd of about 25,000 fans witnessed the game between the two teams played at Selhurst Park while the return match in Goldstone in Hove attracted about 33,000 spectators. One of the two games is credited with giving rise to Brighton FC’s nickname ‘Seagulls’. This is largely seen as a counter for Crystal’s ‘Eagles’ chant during the match that ended in a 2-0 score in favour of Brighton. Brighton FC later officially adopted the ‘Seagulls’ nickname.
