Aston Villa vs Brighton Bet Builder Tips: Sunday, May 28th

We’ve got Aston Villa vs Brighton bet builder tips for you to run the rule over, as the curtain is closed on another Premier League season. Who would have thought these two would be scrapping for European football back in August? Not too many. Brighton’s place is secured but Villa need a result to secure a surprise return to Europe.

In this article:

Aston Villa vs Brighton Preview

England, Premier League, Sunday, May 28th, 16:30 (UK)

Sat in 6th and 7th, respectively, are two sides who have had brilliant seasons. Each club has had to deal with managerial turnover, although for contrasting reasons.

Steven Gerrard’s exit brought a close to a less-than-desirable chapter in Villa’s recent history. On the south coast, Graham Potter’s short-lived switch to Chelsea likely has him on a beach somewhere kicking himself that he sought pastures new rather than staying put in Brighton for the remainder of the season. Instead, we’ve got Unai Emery and Roberto de Zerbi in the dugouts, and what a transformative appointment they’ve both proven to be.

In terms of this specific game, though, there’s certainly more on the line for one set of players. The 1-1 draw at The Amex confirmed that Brighton will be playing in the Europa League next season. They can’t be caught in 6th, nor can they swipe the heels of Liverpool in 5th, who are just out of arm’s reach.

Nevertheless, it’s Villa who perches perilously on the branch of European football. Emery’s men are positioned one point ahead of Tottenham Hotspur with one game remaining. There’s a massive fixture at Elland Road that will kick off simultaneously, as will the rest of the Premier League’s curtain raisers. Leeds United need to beat Spurs for any hope of top-flight survival.

They’ll be giving it everything they’ve got. Those tasked to stop Big Sam’s Leeds United? Spurs. On any other weekend, you’d assume that Spurs will have enough to get the job done there. But with the home side so desperate for three points, perhaps they’ll inadvertently hand Aston Villa a European lifeline in the process.

Aston Villa vs Brighton Stats & Facts

  • Ollie Watkins has 14 Premier League goals to his name this season and will act as Villa’s primary source on Sunday.
  • Danny Welbeck has been involved in five goals in his recent four fixtures on matchday 38.
  • Aston Villa haven’t competed in European competition since the Europa League qualifying rounds in 2010/11.
  • The Seagulls have lost their last three league outings against Aston Villa.

This will be far from straightforward for Villa. We know The Seagulls’ quality, and they’ll want to cap a mightily impressive season off in the right way. However, That Wednesday night match against Europe’s best is not ideal preparation. Considering Aston Villa have had their feet up since Saturday, the seven days of rest with a sole focus on the upcoming Brighton match can only be favourable in comparison.

So, thinking about the 90 minutes ahead, it’s hard to envisage an afternoon that doesn’t end with goals. Aston Villa won the most recent head-to-head 1-2 at The Amex (0.66xG vs 1.49xG), with a mid-season December friendly also ending 2-2 if anything can be taken from that.

With the shackles off Brighton, I expect them to register on the scoresheet, requiring Villa to do similar to accomplish their European aims. BTTS is a touch short at 1.50, but we’ll take it and also lock in Aston Villa Draw or Win, combining at 1.86. Of course, teams needing a win don’t always assume pole position in such high-pressure games, but Villa have been largely outstanding in recent months.

Bar a two-game blip at the end of April against Manchester United and Wolves, an unbeaten Villa side oversaw the other 12 fixtures dating back to mid-February. As a byproduct of intense home pressure, I’d assume Aston Villa knock on the door in terms of corners. At home this season, Emery’s men. have averaged 4.83 corners forced per90. When Brighton takes to the road, their conceded average hits 4.28 corners per90.

  • BTTS – Yes
  • Double Chance: Aston Villa or Draw
  • Over 3.5 Aston Villa Corners

What is a Bet Builder?

A bet builder is a type of accumulator bet focused on a single match. A traditional acca features multiple selections across different matches. These selections are combined to create one bet. If one selection loses, the whole bet loses. A bet builder is similar but each selection is placed on the same match. Similar to American prop bets, bet builders give you the chance to bet on a combination of events in a single match. Common selections include match outcome, total goals, cards, corners, and players to score.
