Match Preview

Slaven Bilic has been given the chance to turn things around slightly ahead of our West Ham United vs Brighton & Hove Albion preview and soccer predictions, with the hosts able to record some victories at home of late.

West Ham have gone from really struggling in the first few weeks of the season to losing just once in their last five competitive games. That defeat came against high-flying Tottenham, who Brighton won’t be able to match in terms of offensive quality.

Our West Ham United vs Brighton & Hove Albion predictions back the hosts to scrape a positive result from a game that could well be low on entertainment, which means that there is value in keeping faith in the Hammers and also backing less than three clear goals with this week’s Premier League odds.

Chris Hughton’s men have been dreadful on the road so far this campaign, with their home form proving to be vital on their road to survival. Away from the Amex, they’re lacking that spark.

West Ham United vs Brighton & Hove Albion Prediction and Betting Advice

Brighton’s last three matches in the Premier League have seen less than three clear goals scored, as Hughton’s men are capable of keeping themselves in tight matches but never seem to be able to find the quality required to edge their noses in front and keep them there.

10Bet offer the best odds on there being less than three goals on Friday evening, which has also been the case with plenty of West Ham’s recent form. The Hammers’ last two home victories have come in 1-0 and 2-0 scorelines respectively, with blowing teams out of the water seeming beyond their powers for the time being.

Bilic will just be overjoyed to take three points, rather than put on any kind of exhibition, and there are no excuses when facing a Seagulls side that have been dreadful on the road this season. At the London Stadium, West Ham should look to keep things tight and see out a big win.

Our West Ham United vs Brighton & Hove Albion bets believe that the home side are going to continue with their resurgence on Friday evening. The hosts have lost just one of their last five Premier League fixtures, managing to scrape away points versus West Brom and Burnley, while recording some confidence-boosting wins against teams they’d expected to beat.

Huddersfield Town and Swansea City are two of the teams that have come to their patch of late, with the duo both failing to score. Tottenham came to London Stadium and rattled home three goals in a 3-2 thriller, but Brighton tend to keep games quite closed and measured. It is very unlikely that a contest such as that will break out this week.

Our West Ham United vs Brighton & Hove Albion picks suggest that the Hammers will record their third home win in four attempts, as Bilic and company continue to climb away from the relegation zone. Betfair offer the best odds on a home win, and given their upturn in form, they should have the firepower to dispose of visitors that are winless away this campaign.
