What Trueform says for West Brom vs Brighton
West Brom have drawn their last two Premier League home games and we reckon that trend could continue when they host Brighton at The Hawthorns.
Albion have shared the spoils in three of their five top-flight fixtures shown on our Trueform chart and would no doubt settle for picking up another valuable point here.
A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds
West Brom finally ended a run of 21 games without a win when prevailing 2-0 at Exeter in the FA Cup, although they received scant reward for that effort when drawn away to Liverpool in round four.
Nevertheless, goalscorer Jay Rodriguez was relieved to break the drought, stating: “You see what winning can do for teams in general, no matter what league you’re in.
“When you’re in a winning streak, you feel unbeatable – and obviously on the other side, you find it hard.
“You get into a rut of not winning, you can feel it in the team. Those thoughts do creep in, you can’t hide from it that we had not won for a while.”
The Baggies have been playing well enough, though, with six draws in 10 league games featuring stalemates with Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham.
Alan Pardew’s side were only denied another point at West Ham by conceding deep into stoppage time.
Four of their 10 draws this term have been goalless and 9/2 for 0-0 stands out from the West Brom vs Brighton odds.

Brighton also progressed in the FA Cup when edging out Crystal Palace 2-1 on Monday night, earning a visit to Middlesbrough later this month.
Chris Hughton should be content with his side’s league form, too, with just one defeat in five top-flight fixtures coming at Chelsea.
The Seagulls beat Watford 1-0 at home and have drawn with Burnley, Newcastle and Bournemouth, with the first two of those stalemates finishing goalless.
With 12th-placed Brighton currently seven points ahead of second-from-bottom West Brom, Hughton would be happy just to maintain that advantage.
Another solid option for our West Brom vs Brighton betting tips is 29/10 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time.
Exeter 0-2 WEST BROM – Salomon Rondon, Jay Rodriguez
BRIGHTON 2-1 Crystal Palace – Dale Stephens, Glenn Murray
