Brighton vs West Ham: Prediction and Betting Tips
Low-scoring Brighton looking to hold on to a lead
Despite winning just one of their last six matches, Brighton are guaranteed another season in the Premier League for the fifth consecutive year. In their last game against Wolves, The Seagulls lost 2-1 after leading 1-0 at halftime making it 23 points lost from winning positions in the Premier League this season.
Games involving Brighton have had very close results. Just three of their last 34 matches have seen a winning margin of one goal or more. With an average of 2.2 total goals per match in their Premier League games, the “1-0” result was the most occurring scoreline this season with seven in Brighton’s matches.
West Ham to hang on to their fifth position
Three defeats in four matches, saw West Ham drop out of a Champions League spot. The Hammers are now six points behind the fourth-placed Chelsea. With three matches still to play, they will have to battle for a Europa League spot with four or five other clubs. All three of West Ham’s last defeats were with one-goal margins. The positive for David Moyes is that his team won his last away game.
The Hammers are clear favorites to win this match. 66% of West Ham’s away matches in which they were favorites, they won. In their last five away matches, David Moyes’s team scored eight goals and conceded nine goals. Two or more goals were scored in the last four H2H matches.
- The last four H2H matches ended in draws
- There is a 56% that both teams will score in this match
- Brighton have scored in four of their last five games
- West Ham have scored in their last three away matches
Brighton vs West Ham Prediction
David Moyes feels his team deserves at least a Europa League qualification at the end of this Premier League season. West ham had a good season but a dip in form in the last four matches have seen the Hammers fall out of a Champions League berth. The Hammers will do their best to get all three points in this match.
Brighton will be content that they survived in the Premier League for another season. They go into this match knowing they haven’t lost to their visitors in four games and feel they can get at least another point here considering West Ham’s recent form.
For our first prediction, we will back a West Ham win, and for our secondary prediction, we will back both teams to score.
