Brighton v West Ham Betting Tips – Premier League, 5th October 8.00pm

The Seagulls are going through a bit of a rough patch of form at the moment as they are struggling to put points on the board. They have just two in their last five games. West Ham have suddenly hit a purple patch of form with a three-match unbeaten streak, including taking a fantastic win over Manchester United last weekend. Read our predictions for Brighton v West Ham.

Brighton News and Form

Brighton are having a few issues at the moment in the top flight. No-one in the top flight this season have committed more fouls per game on average so far than the Seagulls have done. Also, only Fulham and Burnley have conceded more shots against per game on average than the Seagulls have done. Brighton have conceded around 17 shots per game against on average this season. Things are not quite falling into place for the Seagulls at the moment and they are just W1 D2 L4 for the season. They have lost their last two, but they were tough games against Spurs and Man City.

At the Amex, the Seagulls have produced a W1 D1 L1 record from their three Premier League games and they have netted six goals across those fixtures. So with them having an average of two per game at home, for our Brighton v West Ham predictions we are going over 2.5 goals at bet365 which is at 43/40 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from October 2nd, 2018 at 4:14 p.m.). The Seagulls are still on the hunt for their first Premier League clean sheet of the season.

West Ham News and Form

West Ham have done very well to haul themselves out of their early-season funk. They lost their opening for games but are now W2 D1 in their last three. The wins in that sequence were out at Everton and at home against Manchester United. Sandwiched in between those two successes was a 0-0 draw against Chelsea. So it’s been much better from Manuel Pellegrini’s men and they deserve credit for their upturn in form. The two wins that they have recorded this season in the league were both by a 3-1 scoreline. A West Ham 3-1 correct score option is at a chunky 25/1 odds while a more conservative 2-1 away win is at 11/1* (Betting Odds were taken from October 2nd, 2018 at 4:14 p.m.).

Marko Arnautovic has netted in two of the last three games played and he can be backed at 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from October 2nd, 2018 at 4:14 p.m.). Out on their travels they are W1 L3 and they haven’t picked up a clean sheet out on the road as of yet, shipping eight goals in total. To be fair the two defeats were at Liverpool and Arsenal. Those were pretty tough away games. But still, they look a little vulnerable at the back still despite their form rising, so both teams to score is a good option for our Brighton v West Ham betting predictions.
