Match result prediction – West Ham to win

In our first West Ham vs Brighton prediction, we expect this PL clash to end in favour of the Hammers. David Moyes's men have been exceptional in their recent performance, winning four of their last five except a 5-0 loss against Fulham away from home.

They defeated Brighton 1-3 back in August at the start of the season, so completing the double this season against Brighton and in the first game of 2024 should be a top priority, especially against a team that struggled in recent outings.  Brighton won two of their last five, all home wins and lost two of their last three away games, one of which was a draw.

Total match goals prediction – Over 2.5 goals

West Ham and Brighton will be an exciting game. We have seen lots of goals getting scored in this matchup in recent meetings. The last two meetings yielded 4 goals each while three of their last four had four goals each. We think both teams stand a scoring chance and with the Hammers are the winning favourites, over 2.5 goals is a good pick for this PL fixture.

Correct score prediction – 3-2 to West Ham

In the final West Ham vs Brighton prediction, our bet is a 3-2 correct score. This matchup has most yield goals on both sides, noting that only one of the last 10 meetings ended with goals on one end while the other 9 ended with goal-goal outcomes. We predict a massive scoreline and a thrilling fixture with West Ham as the favourite to win 3-2 at home.
