Seven of Wolves’ last ten league games produced under 2.5 goals.

Wolves have conceded the first goal in 21 of their 34 Premier League games this season.

Expect a tight game at Molineux

Wolves and Brighton drew 3-3 when they last faced off in January in a free-scoring slugfest that was largely out of character for both goal-shy teams, however, it’s likely that their rematch on Sunday won’t be quite as entertaining.

Wanderers shared the spoils in a 1-1 tie with Black Country Derby WBA at the Hawthorns in their last assignment, and that was the seventh time in ten Premier League fixtures involving Wolves where under 2.5 goals were produced.

Brighton – who have now lost just once in four games – recorded an impressive 2-0 victory over Leeds in their last outing, though that was only the second time the Seagulls notched more than once in their last 17 league matches.

Indeed, under 2.5 goals were registered in 12 of those contests, and the same market is worth sticking with when Albion visit Molineux on Sunday.

Buoyed by their excellent display against Marcelo Bielsa’s Leeds, Brighton could be worth backing to snatch three points at a Wolves team that were beaten in four of their last six games on their own patch however.

With Danny Welbeck red hot, Neal Maupay a threat and Leandro Trossard in creative mood, Albion seem to have the edge of their hosts in terms of in-form forwards, and our 1-0 correct prediction tips Brighton to carve out their second victory in a row.
