Brighton vs Wolves: Preview, Prediction and Betting Tips

Brighton vs Wolves
England League Championship
Date: Tuesday, 18th October 2016,
Kick-Off at 19:45 UK
Venue: Falmer Stadium, Brighton and Hove.

Brighton and Hove Albion extended their unbeaten run in Championship to 6 matches, but this time they were held to a draw by the visiting Preston and North End. The team which qualified for the promotion play-offs last season had a poor start to their season campaign. Now the ship seem to have steadied and they look set to challenge for the same in consecutive seasons.

Wolverhampton Wanderers managed to hold Aston Villa to a 1-1 draw at the weekend. This ended their two match losing streak, but are without a win in the last three. Wolves lack the consistency at the moment, but their 16 points from 12 matches this season is just 4 short of the play-off zone. They were 14th in the league last season and judging by their run so far they are capable of bettering that finish this term.

Brighton vs Wolves: Head-to-Head Stats

The Wolves haven’t lost to Brighton in their last four Championship meetings. In the 2015/16 season, they won the corresponding fixture at the Falmer Stadium by a 1-0 margin after holding Brighton to a 0-0 draw at home.

Brighton’s head-to-head record against Wolves at home is also a poor one. Their last five meetings saw Brighton winning only once, while Wolves won and drawn twice.

Brighton vs Wolves: Prediction

Brighton are made huge favourites for this fixture purely based on their strong home form and position in the league table. But we believe that the visiting Wolves have an equal chance to get points out of this match as they have trouble Brighton in recent meetings both home and away. As a result, a double chance on Wolves is my recommended pick for this game.

Based on player statistics and head-to-head analysis, we also believe this match will be a 1-1 draw, which is priced at excellent odds of 7.00.

Brighton vs Wolves: Prediction

  • Double Chance – Draw or Wolves at 1.93 (10/11)
  • Correct Full-Time Score: 1-1 draw at 6/1 (7.00).
