Betting Tip

Leeds United is in the relegation zone and they will create their own destiny in the last three games of the season. They are tied with Burnley and are one point behind Everton meaning that a win against Brighton can lift them up and be crucial in securing a Premier League spot for the next season. Leeds has only 8 wins this season but is a good enough team to pull one up in a key point of the season. Brighton is definitely a tough team that has defeated teams from the top of the standings and has a chance for their best finish in the Premier League so far.

However, Leeds will play in front of fans that waited for decades to see their team in the elite competition and there is no way this team will not leave their heart out in this game. With their future on the line and a packed stadium, Leeds will find a way to win this game.
