Match Summary

1 Look out for:

Brighton have the best of the recent head-to-head between these sides, but the Hammers seem to be the team on the up and up. With both teams having the fourth and fifth worst defensive records in the division respectively, it is likely there could be goals in this game. It is 10/11 with bet365 for both teams to score.

One to Watch: Marko Arnautovic

The Austrian maverick has found the back of the net four times already this season and has scored in his last two games. After a bumpy start to the season, when West Ham lost their first four games, things looked pretty grim for the Londoners but since turning their fortunes around with an away win against Everton, the Hammers and in particular Arnuatovic have been in scintillating form. Arnautovic is 2/1 with 888sport to score anytime during the game and that is probably the best of the free football betting tips for this one.

Brighton vs West Ham Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will Glenn Murray prove Brighton’s saviour against West Ham?

Brighton and Hove Albion have mad a poor start to their season and remain winless since beating Manchester United 3-2 in their first home game of the campaign. Their last outing was a 2-0 loss at Manchester City, which came on the back of a 2-1 defeat to Spurs, a result that made it six games without a win in all competitions. Something worth pointing out in this Premier League preview is the fact that Brighton have lost just five of their last 23 home matches since being promoted back into the top flight.  

West Ham United had a desperate start to their league campaign but have bounced back since losing their opening four games and have now gone unbeaten in their last four in all competitions, including a massive 8-0 victory over Macclesfield in the League Cup. The Hammers’ last match was a 3-1 home win over Jose Mourinho’s limp Manchester United, and that came after a goalless draw with Chelsea. It is worth bearing in mind for anyone interested in making any Premier League predictions that West Ham have won just four times in their last 22 away games. 

Brighton are 7/5 to win and last season won this fixture at home 3-1, while also winning 3-0 in London. It is 22/1 for another 3-1 home victory here.

West Ham are 2/1 to take the three points and last beat the Seagulls in Brighton 1-0 in the Championship seven years ago. You can find odds of 8/1 for another West Ham win by a similar scoreline, and that is a decent offering for anyone looking for football betting tips for the weekend. 

The draw is 11/5 and the last time there was a stalemate between these sides was in the Championship at Brighton in 2005, when the game ended 2-2. It is 16/1 for another 2-2 draw this time around, and that is another tempting price for anyone looking to make football predictions in this game. 

Brighton top goalscorer is Glenn Murray has four goals to his name so far this season, and he is 4/1 to open the scoring in this match.

West Ham’s Brazilian attacker Felipe Anderson scored his first goal for his new side last week against the Red Devils and is around 8/1 to fire in the first goal in this one. We think that’s a great price for anyone interested in football score predictions. 

Predicted Score: Brighton 1 - 2 West Ham
