Two teams with goals secured take the field to march towards the finish line of a spectacular season as Manchester City visit Brighton in Premier League action.

Man City were confirmed as Premier League title winners last weekend, receiving a guard of honour from Chelsea as they earned a 1-0 victory over the Blues.

Brighton, meanwhile, have for all intents and purposes confirmed their place in Europe next season after beating Southampton 3-1 in their last game. It's an enormous accomplishment for a club that has never before played in a European competition, and now will almost surely be Europa League participants in the coming campaign.

With both teams having little to play for at this point, it could be an exciting affair as they each look to put a stamp on a sensational season.

Brighton vs. Man City prediction, odds
  • Moneyline lean: Man City (-130)
  • Handicap lean: Man City -0.5 (-140)
  • Score prediction: Brighton 1-2 Man City

Brighton have been incredibly difficult to figure out as the season comes to a close. Opponents seem to have somewhat sussed out how to attack Roberto De Zerbi's tactical setup, and it has led to onslaughts like the 5-1 defeat to Everton and 4-1 reverse to Newcastle.

While the high-risk, high-reward style can definitely produce results, it seems more likely that City will be able to control this match and come away with a victory. Even if Brighton control possession, as they did in the reverse fixture at the Etihad in October (out-passed Man City 398 to 368), they will find it extremely difficult to produce enough chances to keep up.

Brighton vs. Man City: best bet
  • Pick: Half with most goals — 2H
  • Odds: -105 (BetMGM)

City have conceded just 39 percent of their goals in the first half, the second-lowest mark in the Premier League. It's easy to see both teams poking and prodding at each other through the opening 45 minutes, not stretching themselves too much to trouble the scoring given the relative lack of motivation for the two sides in this closing fixture.

Especially considering the visitors may again rest starting-calibre players in the first half before bringing their big guns on in the second half, it's likely this game will be decided after the break.

Brighton vs. Man City prop bet
  • Pick: Race to 4 corners: Man City
  • Odds: -140 (FanDuel)

Brighton are fourth in the Premier League in corners collected this season, yet in their last three games they've amassed a total of seven corners. City, meanwhile, are second in the league in corners, and they are far more consistent in their eventual per-game total.

These two teams also concede the fewest corners in the league, and while something has to give, it's wise not to give City too high of a bar to clear here.
