Kick-off: 1500, 07/03/2020
Wolves will be looking to give their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League another boost when entertaining Brighton at Molineux on Saturday.
However, Albion will also be fighting hard to edge away from the Premier League drop zone and have a good record against Wanderers in recent years, with three wins and two draws from five meetings.
It was 2-2 when these sides clashed at Amex Stadium three months ago and 19/20 for both teams to score again is our initial Wolves vs Brighton prediction.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves climbed up to sixth after twice coming from behind to beat Tottenham 3-2 in London last Sunday, with Matt Doherty, Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez on target.
That victory put them level on points with Manchester United and just one win behind fourth-placed Chelsea, with 10 games left.
With Wanderers impressing just three days after a Europa League trip to Espanyol, Nuno Espirito Santo beamed: “It’s amazing the energy levels that we put into the game.
“They recover very well. It’s a challenge, but when you really embrace the challenge, you give everything you have – and this is what we are doing.”
Wolves rallied from 2-1 down at the break in London and have also been especially strong in the second half during home matches this season.
Looking at the Wolves vs Brighton odds, the stats point us towards taking 19/20 for Wanderers to outscore their opponents after the interval, while 333/100 for Draw HT/Wolves FT may suit those seeking a bit more value.
Last Wolves line-up: Rui Patricio, Doherty, Boly, Coady, Vinagre, Neves, Jota, Saiss, Moutinho, Jimenez, Traore.
A Look At Brighton’s Betting Odds
Brighton have slipped to within a point of the drop zone after a 1-0 home loss to Crystal Palace made it eight Premier League outings without a win.
However, Albion boss Graham Potter remained defiant after watching his side have 67 per cent of possession and 24 attempts on goal.
“It’s a sore one for us, but that’s football, you have to put the ball in the net,” Potter said.
“We created stuff, we tried, had shots, had chances, they didn’t have too much. I feel for the boys.
“We have to dust ourselves down. There’s enough quality there. We showed enough to say that we can move forward, that’s what we’ve got to do.”
To be fair, Brighton have picked up five draws during their current winless run and that was only the second time they had failed to score in 10 top-flight fixtures.
Let’s finish off our Wolves vs Brighton betting tips by taking 91/100 for over 2.5 goals in the game.
Last Brighton line-up: Ryan, Dunk, Webster, Montoya, Burn, Bissouma, Mooy, March, Propper, Maupay, Trossard.
