Where the game will be decided
This is a matchup of the midfields. The seagulls have Pascal Gross and Billy Gilmour to tidy up in the middle as well as an inspiring attacking model in the form of João Pedro.
Wolves with probably a 3-4-3 lineup will have Lemina and Doyle feeding Cunha to convert their chances created into goals. Whoever gets to dictate the play in the midfield will come up victorious.

Last games in between these teams have been high scoring games. Last 4 games have given us 19 goals in total. Previous game was a 4-1 win for Brighton. This sets up for a more than 2.5 goals bet pretty nicely.
At home, Brighton have been prolific goal scorers. They have 22 goals in 10 home games as of now. Their last home match was vs Tottenham Hotspurs where they won with an emphatic scoreline of 4-2. With these statistics we can call for 2 or more home goals to be scored.
Wolves are on a five match unbeaten run. While doing so, they have even beaten the likes of Chelsea at home. But this game is not at home and vs Brighton they haven’t been at their best. Brighton to win prediction sounds like a low risk play.
If you are looking to get in to the risky zones, you could be look towards number of corners in the game. In the last 5 home games, Brighton have had 6 or more corners. On the other end Wolves have lower rate of getting away corners but still its still comfortably above 2 per match. This prompts us to recommend over 9.5 corners in the game.
Alongside that, when you look at how controlling Brighton’s midfield is, you will find out that they like to hold the ball as much as possible before making a striking final pass. They boast a heavy 62.6% possession at the Amex stadium in the Premier League. Wolves away have barely scraped to 50% possession. Going for above 50% possession at game end for Brighton sounds reasonable.
Both Brighton at home and Wolves away, haven’t seen a clean sheet in their last 3 games. Defensive record overall, has been bad for both teams too with the Seagulls letting in 33 goals while Wolverhampton isn’t far behind with 31. This makes us confident in suggesting no clean sheet for either teams.
