Brighton were one of the stories of the Premier League last year, when they made club history by finishing sixth in the league despite the loss of Manager Graham Potter early in the season and striker Leandro Trossard in January.

They’re off to another great start in ’23-24, with the most goals (8) and the best goal differential in the Premier League (+6) through two matches. Saturday brings a home match against West Ham, who opened the season with a draw against Bournemouth but bounced back on Matchday 2.

In Gaming Today’s breakdown of Brighton vs. West Ham predictions, odds, and props, we analyze whether West Ham can pull another upset after their 3-1 win over Chelsea last weekend.

Brighton Roster, Injuries, and Betting News

This summer, midfielders Alexis Mac Allister (Liverpool) and Moises Caicedo (Chelsea) became the latest to join a growing list of former Brighton players who have signed massive contracts with the biggest clubs in Europe.

In the long term, the money Brighton banked from those deals – particularly from the record fee for Caicedo – will provide a massive boost to the club’s bottom line. And in the short term, Brighton has once again proven that they don’t just depend on one or two players. Watching them tear Luton Town and Wolves apart the last weeks, you’d never know they were missing two players who were considered integral to last year’s squad.

West Ham will pose an interesting challenge this weekend, as they’ve shown this season that they’re content to lose the possession battle and seek opportunities to counter. Veteran Manager David Moyes’ team had possession for just 38% of the match against Bournemouth in the opener and only 25% against Chelsea, but found four goals in those two games.

Injuries

Promising 19-year-old forward Julio Enciso suffered a torn meniscus this week that will sideline him for at least a few weeks.

West Ham Roster, Injuries, and Betting News

West Ham are coming off a disappointing season last year, as they finished 14th in the EPL, just six points clear of relegation. The team’s struggles in ’22-23 followed a sixth-place finish in ’20-21 and a seventh-place finish in ’21-22.

The story of the offseason for West Ham was the loss of homegrown star midfielder Declan Rice to Arsenal. This week, the club signed Greek center back Konstantinos Mavropanos from Bundesliga side Stuttgart, and they’re reportedly on the verge of signing attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus from Dutch side Ajax.

Mavropanos is expected to be a fixture in West Ham’s back line but is not fit for Saturday’s match against Brighton.

Injuries

West Ham will face Brighton without starting center back Nayef Aguerd, who is suspended for the match. Mavropanos will not play Saturday due to a minor injury but is expected to debut for the club soon.

Brighton vs. West Ham Prediction: Brighton 2, West Ham 1

As impressive as Brighton have been through two matches, I don’t expect a third straight blowout victory for Roberto De Zerbi’s team. They’ll struggle to score, at least compared to their first two matches, but I’m not picking against them at home.

Still, the opportunity to take West Ham to keep it close — or if you’re feeling risky, Double Chance: Tie or West Ham (+160) – feels tempting.

Here are a few bets available at DraftKings that are worth checking out:

  • Parlay: Brighton Win, Under 3.5 (+135)
  • Both Teams To Score, No Draw – Yes (+120)
