Brighton vs Wolves Premier League Predictions and Match Preview by LeagueLane

Brighton vs Wolves
English Premier League
Date: 29 April 2023, Saturday
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: The American Express Community Stadium (Falmer).

Brighton will be hoping to return to winning ways on Saturday afternoon when they host Wolves in Matchday No 34 at The AMEX.

The Seagulls did not look like themselves on Wednesday night when they allowed relegation-threatened Nottingham Forest to come from behind and beat them 3-1 at The City Ground.

Roberto De Zerbi’s men gave up chances too easily on the occasion. We assume the weekend’s FA Cup semifinal defeat on penalties to Manchester United has affected the team’s midweek display.

The Italian manager will be hoping to see his men a lot fresher on Saturday when Brighton will continue their battle for European competitions.

The Seagulls are eighth in the league table with four point between them and sixth-placed Liverpool on whom they have a couple of games in hand.

If Brighton want to play in Europe next season, they can’t drop points in games like this one, especially considering Wolves’ away form.

Wolverhampton are among the worst travelers in the league as only two of their ten Premier League wins have come away from Molineux Stadium this term.

The team led by Julen Lopetegui did manage three wins in the last four league games, but all of these victories were achieved at the Molineux. Wolves took just one point from the previous four league fixtures on the road.

Brighton vs Wolves Head-to-head

  • Brighton lead the overall head to head tie by 8 wins going into the 30th meeting with Wolverhampton.
  • The Seagulls will enter this on the back of two successive wins over Wolves, having bagged three goals in each of these along the way.
  • All but one of the previous five head to head outings between these rivals saw at least three goals scored.

Brighton vs Wolves Prediction

The bookies see Brighton as heavy favorites here but we do struggle to find the value in backing their win at the 1.50 odds knowing how tired their players looked on Wednesday night at The City Ground.

Wolves will enter this in higher spirits after a run of three wins in the previous four Premier League affairs. Regardless of their dreadful away form, we see the value in backing the visitors to avoid a defeat at The AMEX at the 2.50 odds. The alternative pick is Both Teams To Score at the 1.95 odds mainly because of the high-scoring trend in recent H2H games.

Brighton vs Wolves Betting Tips

  • Wolves to win or draw @ 2.50 (6/4)
  • Both Teams To Score @ 1.95 (19/20) odd.
