West Ham v Brighton betting tips: Hammers seek home comforts
West Ham v Brighton betting tips and odds
West Ham will be determined to consolidate their top-four place after a couple of defeats as we search for some West Ham v Brighton betting tips.
The Hammers have suffered successive away losses to Wolves and Manchester City but remain fourth on goal difference from Arsenal.
Brighton are now ninth after stretching their winless run to eight games having made a promising start to the season.
There were more goals scored after the break in each of those encounters as well and that trend is 19/20 to continue.
Brighton are unbeaten in eight encounters with the Hammers, last losing in 2012 when suffering a 6-0 defeat in this corresponding fixture, and are 3/1 to snap their winless streak.
The Seagulls have still only lost three times all season with only Crystal Palace (7) drawing more times than their six.

They have failed to score in four matches during that run and only once – at Liverpool – have they netted more than one goal.
Hammers boss David Moyes prefers a 4-2-3-1 formation with Michail Antonio the focal point in attack.
Jarrod Bowen and Manuel Lanzini, both second-half substitutes at the Etihad Stadium, could come into Moyes’ thinking to start with Said Benrahma possibly one to make way.
Brighton have changed their system a few times this season, ranging from a 4-2-3-1 to a 3-5-2.
It was the former against Leeds, when goalkeeper Robert Sanchez was back from suspension while striker Neal Maupay returned after two games as a substitute, only to miss a sitter.
Tariq Lamptey played in a more advanced role against Leeds and was a constant threat while Solly March shone in a late cameo and could get the nod here.
