Pick: Both Teams to Score NO
Odds: 3/4
Bookmaker: Betfair
(All betting odds correct at time of writing: 27 April 2022)

Preview: Meetings between the two teams are typically competitive, with neither prevailing by more than a solitary goal in all seven Premier League encounters. However, Wolves’ 1-0 victory at Amex Stadium in December means they can complete a first ever league double over Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

Wolves – Qualifying for Europe on the line?

With three defeats in four league games and an unenviable fixture list to navigate, the prospect of Wolves playing in Europe from next season has become all the more difficult. Bruno Lage’s side sit eighth coming into the weekend, three points shy of West Ham in seventh who have played a game more, but know they cannot afford any more slip ups similar to that sustained at relegation-threatened Burnley last time.

Downed 1-0 at Turf Moor, the game against Burnley was Wolves’ first for more than two weeks, so perhaps there was an element of ring rust to the performance. Yet it means they have lost each of the last two games via the same scoreline, also losing 1-0 at Newcastle earlier in the month. Moreover, it continued a long-running trend, with no top-flight team on a longer run without drawing than Wanderers (15 games; W8 L7).

Key Stat: No Premier League ground has seen fewer goals this season than the 34 at Molineux. There has been a noticeable shift in output of late, though, with five of the last seven home league games for Wolves seeing Over 2.5 Goals.


Wolves Win By One Goal



Brighton – Potter’s side ending the campaign strongly?

The Seagulls’ decent run of form continued with a 2-2 draw at home to Southampton, even if the final outcome will have felt bitterly disappointing for Graham Potter and his players. Having taken a 2-0 lead shortly before half-time, Brighton would have been expected to see out the remainder of the contest. Instead they were undone by a James Ward-Prowse double either side of the interval.

That result made it one loss in five (W2 D2 L1), their only blemish a 3-0 scoreline away at league leaders Man City. Prior to that, though, they had gone to North London and upset Arsenal and Tottenham, beating two sides locked in a battle for fourth place by the odd goal. With 22 of Wolves’ Premier League games this season settled by a margin of one goal, whose to say Brighton cannot record another narrow success?

Key Stat: Brighton won each of their first six league games away to Wolves but have managed to win just one of 11 subsequent meetings as the away side (W1 D7 L3).

Wolves Vs Brighton Betting Advice

Eighth hosts eleventh at Molineux and I am anticipating a closely fought encounter. Not least because all seven Premier League meetings between the sides has either produced a draw (four) or a one goal margin of victory (two for Wolves, one for Brighton). Wolves emerged victorious the last two times, though, but needed a Lewis Dunk red card and a last minute winner to prevail in last season’s Molineux fixture.


Wolves Vs Brighton – Key Facts:

  • After earning a 1-0 win in this season’s reverse fixture between the sides, Wolves can make it three straight head-to-head victories whilst also completing a first ever league double over their opponents.
  • Goals could be in short supply. A bet on Both Teams to Score returned a winner only twice across Wolves’ eight prior league games and in just three of Brighton’s last 12.
  • All seven previous Premier League meetings between the teams either ended in a draw (four) or a one goal margin of victory for either side (one for Brighton, two for Wolves).


The temptation to plump for the draw is clear then. However, it has to be noted that no side is on a longer wait for a draw than Wolves, who haven’t drawn any of their last 15 top-flight matches since a goalless draw at home to Chelsea in December. Meanwhile, six of Wolves’ last eight didn’t feature both teams scoring, while it was the same for nine of Brighton’s last 12. BTTS No and Wolves/Brighton to win has logic to it then.
