Brighton continues to disappoint by extending their winless streak to the fifth game in a row. The visitor is nine points behind the host on the table and closer to the relegation zone. They will visit after a 1-1 draw at home with Sheffield United in their previous encounter in the campaign.

West Ham vs Brighton Prediction
West Ham has failed to score in only one of their last five home matches. The host has averaged 1.5 goals in the campaign so far this season. Despite having just two wins until now, Brighton has scored 16 goals in their 14 league clashes in their schedule.
With both teams in a good scoring spree, it is only right to back them each to find the back of the net in ninety minutes. Hence, the tip for BTTS will come in handy from the goals area. At 1.75 odds, the tip is likely adequate to yield decent returns in the encounter.
The host enjoys the ground advantage in the game, and they have lost only two of their last seven home matches in the campaign this season. On the contrary, the Seagulls have only two wins in their seven outings this term in the league.
The double chance favoring West Ham will probably be the best bet for the punters. Regarding their ground advantage and position in the league table, they do possess a slight edge over the visitor. At 1.40 odds, it seems like a safe bet to go with, in the clash.
