Brighton vs West Ham: Hammers to hold lowly Seagulls

Brighton vs West Ham Match Preview and Predictions

Brighton drew at Southampton on Wednesday to give us three correct betting tips and now take on West Ham as 13/10 favourites to end a six-match winless run.

Injury-hit West Ham had the better of a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace on Tuesday and they are 49/20 to avenge their defeat by the Seagulls in October.

Despite their problems with injuries, the Hammers are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games.

Match-up history

The Seagulls ran out 3-0 winners at the London Stadium in autumn, but their winless run has left them one point off the relegation zone and priced at 6/5 to go down.

Only Southampton and West Brom have drawn more games than these two sides and at 21/10 a share of the spoils is the first of our Brighton vs West Ham predictions.

West Ham have drawn three of their last four while two of Brighton's last three have finished all square, and although David Moyes' side have outscored their opponents 12-3 in the last six matches, their expected goals aggregates are quite similar as the form graphic shows.

Team news

Leonardo Ulloa could make his first Premier League start for Brighton after coming on for the last 13 minutes at Southampton.

Michail Antonio has recovered from injury but was left out of the West Ham squad for the Palace game after arriving late for a team meeting. The Hammers signed Preston striker Jordan Hugill on deadline day, but Reece Oxford has returned to Borussia Monchengladbach on loan.

Match facts

West Ham have been moving up the both teams to score table every week and the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace was their seventh successive match in which goals have been seen at both ends.

The Seagulls have scored just 12 times at home at an average of one goal a game and their attack ranks as the fourth worst at creating chances with an average xG of 1.07.

However, their average has picked up in the last six games (1.2) and so the next of our football tips is for both teams to score at 21/20.

A 1-1 draw at 11/2 is the last of our Brighton vs West Ham betting tips. The Hammers have drawn by this scoreline in three of their last four and that was how it finished when Chris Hughton's men travelled to Southampton on Wednesday. With more chances starting to fall their way and Ulloa in their side, Brighton can maintain their low scoring average at home.
