Brighton v Wolves – Match Preview and Betting Tips
Brighton v Wolves – Sat 27th Oct, 15:00, Amex Stadium
I can see this game being a fairly dull, defensive encounter between these two teams. Wolves are usually solid at the back but they suffered a rather shock 2-0 defeat to Watford at Molineux last time out. Under Chris Hughton, Brighton are a well-organised defensive unit which will be tough to break down at the Amex.
Wolves are more than capable of going forward with some brilliant attacking talent in their team, but they showed their weakness in breaking down a defensive unit when Watford sat back to hold on to their two-goal advantage.
Brighton are scoring just 1.11 goals on average per match while conceding 1.44 goals. Similarly, Wolves are averaging just 1 goal a game while conceding 0.89 per match. They have registered six clean sheets between them this season, and I can see either side knicking this one by a goal.
The Seagull’s will be without their main man, Glenn Murray after his bad head injury last weekend. Also, Pascal Gross is an injury doubt, and knowing Hughton (manager at my team Norwich City) he will set up with a compact defensive unit.
Firstly, I just do not see a lot of goals in this one. Both teams have scored in just one of Wolves last five Premier League matches while both teams have scored in two of Brighton’s last five. Under 2.5 goals is best priced at 8/13 with BetVictor which could be a good pick for an Acca.
Secondly, I struggle to see where Brighton’s goal threat will come from in this game, so I do see value in Wolves sneaking a win here. They are best priced at 31/20 with Betfair for the win.
For a cheeky longshot punt, I also like the look of the correct score 1-0 Wolves. Which is best priced at 13/2 with Betfred.
