Brighton vs Wolverhampton Wanderers key stats

  • Brighton’s last five matches have all produced fewer than 2.5 goals.
  • Wolves’ last six matches have all produced fewer than 2.5 goals.
  • These two sides overall average the fewest goals per game in the league (Brighton exactly two goals per game, Wolves 1.63 goals per game).
  • Wolves have scored no goals in their last four Premier League matches.

Ten without a win

Despite sitting in 11th place, Brighton have gone a league longest ten games without a win.

If any encouragement is to be taken from that, only two of these matches have ended in defeat, with Brighton drawing their last three in a row.

Brighton should be considerably fresher than their opponents as their game against Spurs on Sunday was called off, meaning they will have gone 11 days between games by the time this one comes around.

Wolves lacking firepower

Wolves have failed to score in their last four games and the task of finding the back of net became harder when striker Raul Jimenez was needlessly sent off on the weekend against Manchester City meaning he will miss this match.

The last two Wolves blanks have come against the leagues top two so could be expected and wins and under 2.5 goals were predicted for both opponents.

However, the inability to score in their matches against Burnley and Norwich – both in the bottom three – should cause concern.

Brighton vs Wolverhampton Wanderers predictions

This game is likely to be the most boring of the round, unfortunately though there is no such betting market for that.

Instead, given the distinct lack of goalscoring in both sides we predict there will be under 2.5 goals in this match.

We also predict this match will be a draw. We considered combining under 2.5 goals with the draw but the difference in odds is not much.
