The guests have three draws in a row, and they also cannot boast of good form, they are old Premier League players, and they should keep that status.

Brighton vs Newcastle Betting Tips & Predictions
Reason for Brighton vs Newcastle Predictions
Brighton is positioned 16th with 29 points. In their last game, Brighton dominated Southampton and won 2-1, getting back to winning ways after going six matches without a win. They still have no clean sheet in the last four games but will be glad to have bagged 15 points from their previous ten league matches, which places them three points above the relegation zone. Brighton has been low-scoring but also doesn’t concede a lot. In their last 11 league matches, they’ve been able to score more than a goal in just one but have conceded more than one goal in only four of the last 15 league games. An improvement in their home performances will be key if Brighton hopes to negotiate the survival curve successfully. A big stat they will be looking to with hope is the fact that in seven meetings with Newcastle, they’ve kept six clean sheets. Neal Maupay was the best player on the team last season. He scored ten goals, he is doing great in the penalty area, and he is a real team leader, all praise for him. Tariq Lamptey is a great player, he creates a lot of problems for his opponents, and the greatest virtue of this guy is speed.
Newcastle United is now winless in five matches, and their chances of staying up are still uncertain. They sit on top of the relegation region, only two points better than Fulham, and just like Brighton, they’ve also been low scorers. In the last five matches, the Magpies haven’t managed more than one goal, and they have just two wins in their previous 19 games across all competitions. In nine of the last 15 matches, Newcastle has conceded two goals or more and has managed just three clean sheets in the 15 games. From a possible 45 points in the last 15 league matches, the Magpies have managed to collect just 10 points and have a poor run of seven losses in the previous ten away league matches. Sean Longstaff plays well in the middle of the park, and he does not allow the opponent much action. Joelinton is slowly returning to a recognizable form, and he is the factor that can raise the team to a higher level with his goals.
It will be a big battle between these two teams, and it will not be surprising if the match ends in a draw. We can also expect a goal in both nets, as their defenses are leaking pretty much.
