Wolves vs Brighton Betting Preview | 7 Mar 2020

Picking up what could be three crucial points away in North London last weekend, Wolves will look to continue on their European charge when they welcome a struggling Brighton to Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

Coming from behind to bag a 3-2 win away at Spurs last time out, the Midlands outfit have landed back-to-back Premier League victories and have lost just a sole top-flight appearance in their last seven outings.

On the flip side, while Wolves might be enjoying an extended purple patch after also booking their spot in the quarter-final of this year’s Europa League, Brighton find themselves in the midst of a real struggle.

Hit with a 1-0 defeat against bitter rivals Crystal Palace on the South Coast last weekend, the Seagulls have failed to record a single victory since opening the New Year and are still firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap.

However, grabbing a point off of Wolves when the two sides faced off at the Amex back in December, the last two meetings between the two sides have ended in a stalemate and another draw on Saturday can be found priced at 11/4 with Bet365.

Who can stop Diogo Jota?

Coming from behind to snatch what was a dramatic 3-2 win away at Spurs last weekend, Wolves suddenly find themselves sat just three points adrift of climbing into the Champions League positions.

Also booking their spot in the quarter-finals of this year’s Europa League thanks to a 7-2 aggregate win over Spanish outfit Espanyol last week, Nuno Espírito Santo’s side have won three of their last four matches across all competitions.

Once again finding the net in North London last time out, there is no doubt that fans around Molineux will be hugely excited by Diogo Jota’s glittering run of form entering March.

Also recording a European hat-trick in the Midlands last week, the 23-year-old has now found the net in his last three matches on the bounce, recording a stunning six goals on that run.

Enjoying arguably his most clinical spell for Santo’s side, you might be interested to know that Jota can be found priced at 15/8 with Paddy Power to extend on his tally against the Seagulls this weekend.

Elsewhere, after appearing to reinjure his shoulder against Spurs last week, key man Adama Traore could be forced to undergo surgery after dislocating his shoulder for the third time in just 16 appearances.

The struggling Seagulls

Hit with a 1-0 defeat against M23 rivals Crystal Palace on the South Coast last weekend, Graham Potter’s men now hold just a one-point buffer over the drop zone and have continued on a torrid run of form since opening the New Year.

In fact, Brighton remain the only side without a Premier League win in 2020 (D5 L3), with the Seagulls last enjoying a top-flight victory against Bournemouth on the 28th of December.

Now landing just a sole clean sheet across any competition since the 2nd of November, it is no surprise that a huge part of Brighton’s continued blip had been their worrying displays at the back.

Recording just a single Premier League win away from the Amex since the opening weekend, the Seagulls also shipped a trio of strikes in back-to-back away fixtures against West Ham and Bournemouth last month.

You might be interested to know that Saturday’s guests can be found priced at 5/2 with William Hill to once again ship over 2.5 goals on the road this weekend.
