Bet on Brighton to Build on Back-to-Back Wins

A highly-anticipated Premier League clash between Brighton and West Ham will bring down the curtain on Saturday’s action. Our sportsbook offers the best markets and Premier League live betting in the English top-flight league.

Attacking Firepower Makes Brighton Smart Bet

Three second-half goals in less than 10 minutes helped Brighton continue their perfect start to their campaign, defeating Wolves at Molineux Stadium. Brighton also beat Luton Town 4-1 in their league opener and has six points and a healthy goal difference at the top.

This season will be about consistency for Roberto De Zerbi. Is Brighton built any differently from Leicester City or Aston Villa in the past? De Zerbi firmly remains the start and end of Brighton’s current cycle. The club has shown they are eager to adapt and make ruthless changes if needed. Despite rumors of some of the big clubs wanting the Italian tactician, he has remained unfazed and committed to the job at Brighton.

The European adventure is something the fans are looking forward to. But there are some question marks around it. Brighton has updated their squad, but is it enough to sustain the Europa League and Premier League together? We expect them to enjoy another great season, so we will continue to include them in our Premier League picks and parlays. Barring any fresh injury worries, De Zerbi is unlikely to make changes to the team that outplayed the Wolves on Matchday 2.

Solid Start Not Enough for West Ham

James Ward-Prowse enjoyed a debut to remember and helped West Ham United beat Chelsea 3-1. West Ham will hope to continue their unbeaten start to the campaign when they travel to the south coast to face early leaders Brighton.

West Ham had to fight for survival in the EPL for most of last season and finished 14th in the league table. The UEFA Europa Conference League win gave them an immense confidence boost and are likely to become an attractive destination for players. With the Declan Rice money available to spend, West Ham has the budget to put together a formidable squad in the next few days.

West Ham has not been quite active in the transfer market so far and it will be very difficult for them to compete with Brighton, so if you’re betting online, you should fade them on the road. Angelo Ogbonna is widely expected to replace Morocco international Nayef Aguerd in the starting lineup. James Ward-Prowse could prove to be an important addition. In the attack, they should look to bring in a reliable goal scorer.

Brighton Has Upper Hand vs West Ham

Brighton has won their first two EPL matches for only the second time, having done it in the 2021-22 campaign. Their eight goals in their first two games are the joint most they’ve ever scored at this point of a season. Since De Zerbi’s first EPL game in command of Brighton in October, only five clubs have won more points in the division.

Brighton extend their impressive goalscoring run on the road to 15 Premier League trips. The hosts won the last three matches against West Ham, scoring nine goals and keeping two clean sheets in the process, including a superb 4-0 win back in March at this venue.

My Pick: Combine Moneyline and Total

The hosts enter this clash as heavy favorites, priced at -190 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest Premier League odds, while the goal line is set at three.

Brighton enjoyed a superb 2022-23 season in front of their fans, winning 10 in 19 games and scoring 37 goals. They kicked off their domestic campaign in style with two wins in a row and have the upper hand on West Ham, beating them in each of the last three head-to-heads.

We expect Brighton to win this game, and for better odds, we will combine the moneyline with the goals market as we expect at least three goals in the game.
