We have scoured the betting markets to give you the best bets for the action.
Correct Score Prediction
The first of our predictions is Brighton to win 3-1. They have enough quality in attack to hurt the Premier League new boys but they haven’t been solid at the back throughout pre-season.
I’m predicting Brighton to emerge victorious here. They enjoyed a fantastic season last time around. First under Graham Potter, then under Roberto De Zerbi. They secured European football and there is a sense of optimism around the club.
The summer hasn’t come without its problems. Several players have moved or are looking to move away from the club. However, they have reinvested the funds into the squad.
Luton are the odds-on favourites to be relegated ahead of the season. While I fancy them to perform better than many expect, a trip to Brighton on the opening day looks a step too far.
Brighton are available at 4/11 on the 1×2 market with Bet9ja.
Draw No Bet Predictions
The second of our tips markets is draw no bet. Luton are a much more backable price in this market but I’m sticking with my 1×2 selection and favouring Brighton
Luton have nothing to lose in their first match so expect them to throw everything at the game, particularly in the later stages. Rob Edwards’ side have scored in their last five away matches. Thy will know that a spirited performance could be the morale booster they need at the start of this season so the team should commit bodies forward.
Brighton are scoring an average of 2.1 and conceding 1.1 goals per game across their last 10 competitive home matches.

Our Analysis of the Brighton vs Luton Town Match
This game is the perfect chance for Brighton to get their season off on the right foot. They started 2022/23 with a win at Old Trafford.
Under De Zerbi last season, Brighton earned many plaudits for the way they played. They became one of the most proficient pressing teams in Europe and were a nightmare to play against. They are also exceptional on the ball and have the ability to play through their opponent’s pressure.
Luton often favour direct long balls so they shouldn’t see too much possession in this game. Brighton aren’t known for giving the ball away cheaply so Edwards’ men will need to make the most of their chances to attack.
The challenge for Brighton is preventing Luton from playing accurate balls in behind their high-defensive line. De Zerbi is a tactically astute coach and I expect him to have the answers so that his team can make a winning start.
Top Scorers Predictions for Brighton vs Luton Town
Our scorer prediction for Brighton vs Luton Town is Welbeck anytime.
Danny Welbeck has led the line in three of Brighton’s four pre-season matches. He has looked more up to speed than Evan Ferguson who will likely be their starting striker for most of the season.
Many fancy Welbeck to start here and he has netted twice in pre-season. We can get odds of 6/5 with Betking for him to do the same in the Premier League opener.
Brighton to kickstart their campaign with a win
Brighton is a well-run club and they are equipped to deal with the challenges that have presented themselves in the summer.
They have had to endure a long saga surrounding Moises Caicedo but their consistent style and seemingly endless conveyor belt of talent means they are ready for the season ahead.
They have brought in several players but their acquisition of Joao Pedro is the most exciting.
Luton went up via the playoffs. Many feel they will struggle on the road with their home form proving crucial in the race to survive in the top flight.
