Wolves are starting to lose grip on the top-seven chase and Nuno Espiritu Santo will be looking to revive with the same when his team take on Brighton at the Molineux Stadium this weekend. Wolves are level on points with Leicester who have played a game more, but the Foxes have better momentum going into the last few weeks. Brighton are in serious danger of dropping into the bottom three at the worst possible time with the team now just two points above the bottom three. Follow all our predictions, free bets, and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Wolves lost further momentum in the campaign after a disappointing 3-1 defeat against Southampton at the St Mary’s Stadium. It was a poor performance from Wolves, who gave the ball away on numerous occasions, just after the FA Cup exit at the hands of Watford.
Brighton took a major blow in the efforts to avoid relegation after a 2-0 loss against Cardiff City, who are one of the chief relegation rivals, at the AMEX Stadium. The Seagulls have lost four games on the bounce.
The previous game between Brighton and Wolves was a 1-0 win for the Seagulls at the AMEX Stadium. Wolves’ last home game against Brighton was in the Championship when the Seagulls picked up a 2-0 victory at the Molineux Stadium. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for Wolves.

Chris Hughton has a major worry on his hands with Brighton on a very poor sequence of results at the worst possible time. There is absolutely no momentum or confidence left within Brighton players with four games left in the campaign. Wolves are also on a mediocre run, but the club has far better quality along with home advantage. Wolves are still unbeaten in the last eight matches at home – a run that has seen opponents like Liverpool and Manchester United lose to Nuno’s men. Our preview would pick a victory for Wolves.

Wolves vs Brighton draw odds: 3.50
Brighton win odds: 6.00
Correct Score odds
Brighton have been allowing far too much time and space for the opponents, who have scored 12 goals past the Seagulls in the last five matches across all competitions. Crucially, Brighton have not scored in any of these games. Wolves will hope to correct the individual mistakes committed against Southampton. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Wolves.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Wolves have scored under 2.5 goals in the last four games at the Molineux Stadium. The lack of goals from Brighton is likely to be a significant factor behind the lower return of goals in this match. The earlier game between these two teams also produced less than 1.5 goals in total. Our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Raul Jimenez has been in good form throughout the season. The Mexican is the top scorer at Wolves with league goals. Even though he has scored only once since the last international break, Jimenez has the potential to rediscover his scoring touch against a team like Brighton who are defensively poor. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Jimenez.
