Brighton vs Wolves: Top free betting tips

Brighton welcome Wolves to the Amex Stadium on Monday 22 January in a match that looks close to call on paper. Both teams have enjoyed rollercoaster-like form all season which makes this a hard match to predict. Our Brighton vs Wolves prediction is for the Seagulls to narrowly come out on top in what will be a match of cat and mouse between two tactical masterminds.

Match result prediction: Brighton to win

Brighton have enjoyed highs and lows this season from winning their Europa League group to long stretches of form without a win. At present, they are in a good place with just one loss in their last eight matches in all competitions while at home, have lost just once all season. Wolves, meanwhile, are in good form themselves and have won four of their last five in all comps. However, their away league form isn't great (four losses in their last five) which leans us towards Brighton here.

Total goals prediction: Over 2.5 goals

Brighton are perhaps more forward-thinking than Wolves with Gary O'Neil's men preferring to do their attacking work on the counter. However, that should suit them here against a Brighton team who will certainly play on the front foot at home. It sets us up for an intriguing match that should see chances at both ends of the pitch. Brighton have scored eight goals in their last three matches while Wolves have scored eleven in their last four.

Correct score prediction: Brighton 2-1 Wolves

Brighton need a win here to set them back on the right path towards European qualification and we expect them to get the job done. Wolves were forced into an FA Cup replay in the week so they will have some tired legs in their ranks while Brighton have had two weeks off. We're going for Brighton 2-1 Wolves.

Brighton have enjoyed two weeks of rest and recuperation which has included a warm-weather training camp in Dubai. This has allowed some players to regain fitness including Webster and Igor who should both be fit to return to the defence if needed while Solly March has an outside chance of making the squad after being spotted in training in Dubai. In terms of absentees, Adingra and Mitoma are on international duty while Veltman, Lamptey, Enciso and Fai are all injured.

Meanwhile, Joao Gomes will miss out on the match due to suspension.
