Bitesize Prediction: Brighton vs Wolves – 15/12/21

Competition: Premier League

Market: Under 2.5 goals

Odds: 4/6 @ 888sport

In what could turn out to be another low-scoring affair in midweek, Brighton will welcome Wolves to the Amex on Wednesday night.

Starting with the hosts, after being given an extended break over the past 11 days, Brighton will be desperate to end what has been a recent blip on the south coast. Although Graham Potter’s side might have managed to snatch stunning last-gasp points in their back-to-back 1-1 draws against West Ham and Southampton, the former Swansea boss finds his side in the midst of a worrying 11-match winless run across all formats, a run that stems back to September 22nd. Gaining a real reputation as a stalemate specialist, Brighton are also dealing with a host of injury issues heading into a stacked Christmas schedule. Likewise, still lacking a clinical edge in the final third, it should also be noted that Wednesday’s hosts have seen each of their last five Premier League contests finish with under 2.5 goals.

As for the visitors, while Wolves might have put in another largely rugged display over the weekend, it was another afternoon where the Oranges left with nothing to show. Now coming off the back of back-to-back 1-0 losses against Liverpool and defending champions Manchester City, Bruno Lage’s men have recorded just a single win from any of their last six Premier League matchups. Likewise, in the midst of a four-match winless run, the Midlands-based outfit have also shown some extended problems in the final third. Along with drawing four blanks on the bounce, Wolves have also recorded just a single strike from any of their previous six outings. Unable to call upon attacking talisman Raul Jiminez when they make the trip to the Amex on Wednesday night, we’re backing under 2.5 goals here.

Bet: Under 2.5 goals at Brighton vs Wolves 4/6 for Wednesday’s Premier League contest @ 888sport
