Brighton v West Ham Prediction & Betting Tips, 3rd February 201831st January 2018 / lee
Brighton v West Ham Premier League Preview, 3rd February 3.00pm
Brighton really need to improve their home form to be in with a fighting chance of at least getting themselves safe this season. They haven’t done too badly recently at the Amex though and they will be taking on a patched-up West Ham side. The Hammers are struggling a bit with injuries but they have improved well to go unbeaten in four on the road though.
Brighton v West Ham Betting Odds*
Brighton 13/10, Draw 2/1, West Ham 12/5* (Betting Odds taken on January 30th, 2018 at 9:23 p.m.)
Brighton News and Form
The Seagulls are increasingly getting concerned about relegation this season from the Premier League. They had a three match undefeated streak of form at the Amex broken when they were hammered 4-0 by Chelsea in their last home game. It leaves them with just the one win in their last nine home games, but if you look at the W1 D6 L2 record in that sequence, they have been grinding out points at least. A lack of goals has been hurting them this term and the Seagulls have managed only the twelve of them on home soil and they have been leading at half time in just one home fixture. So this probably will be a low scoring game and under 2.5 goals at William Hill is at 1/2* (betting odds taken January 31st at 5:15 p.m.). That will be partly based on Brighton having taken three clean sheets in their last five at the Amex. 75% of their goals at home this season have been after the half time break so a half time draw is a really good prospect for this game. Brighton have been level at half time in seven of their twelve games at the Amex so there is a trend there.
West Ham News and Form
The Hammers have improved a lot since early December and they have become a lot more difficult to beat under David Moyes. They have managed to go undefeated in their last four games away from home in the top flight now, winning their last road game out at Huddersfield. They are having issues at the back though as they have been struggling badly for clean sheets with one in their last seven league outings following a 1-1 draw at home against Crystal Palace in midweek. Overall home and away the Irons are undefeated in six and have lost just one of their last ten now. Their away record isn’t particularly pretty this season as it is just W2 D5 L6 and they have conceded an average of two goals per game. The Irons have scored in each of their last five games away from the London Stadium, but have conceded in each of their last three. Both teams to score at William Hill for odds of even money will carry appeal* (betting odds taken January 31st at 5:15 p.m.) and as the Hammers have drawn three of their last four league outings by a 1-1 scoreline, that is going to be a decent option to consider in the correct score market.
Brighton v West Ham Head to Head
Brighton bagged a brilliant 3-0 win out at West Ham earlier in the season, arguably one of their best performances of the season. That, however, snapped a four-match winless streak of form that they were on against West Ham (D1 L3). Brighton have collected one point from their last two league home games against the Irons and both teams have not scored in seven of the last eight meetings.
Who will win – Brighton v West Ham Predictions
Brighton need something badly to get themselves safe and they should be able to stick in here for a draw. West Ham are below strength at the moment and this is an occasion where the Seagulls should really take advantage of that. However, with that said, it’s worth backing a draw though as West Ham are unbeaten on the road in four.
