Wolves 8/13 to beat Brighton in Saturday’s Premier League showdown

Competition: Premier League

Market: Wolves win

Odds: 8/13 @ Bet 365

Knowing that three points this weekend could see them break into the top-four, a high-flying Wolves will welcome Brighton to Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, coming from behind and snatching a 3-2 win away at another top-four hopeful in Tottenham last weekend, Wolves are enjoying what is another glittering run of form. Booking their spot in the quarter-final of this year’s Europa League thanks to a 7-2 aggregate win over Spanish outfit Espanyol last week, Nuno Espírito Santo’s men know that three points this weekend could see them break into the top-four. Losing just a sole Premier League matchup since New Year’s Day and with that loss coming against runaway leaders Liverpool, one man to keep an eye out for on Saturday will certainly be the red-hot, Diogo Jota. The 23-year-old has found the net in his last three matches on the bounce, recording six goals on that purple patch.

As for the visitors, hit with a 1-0 defeat against bitter rivals Crystal Palace at the Amex last weekend, Brighton find the mood in their camp at a continued low. Still firmly at the heart of a relegation scrap and holding just a one-point buffer from dropping into the bottom-three, Graham Potter’s men are now without a win since opening the New Year. Also crashing out of the FA Cup thanks to what was a shock 1-0 defeat against Championship outfit Sheffield Wednesday back in January, the Seagulls have also failed to record a win on their travels since the 5th of December. Already shipping a trio of strikes away at the likes of West Ham and Bournemouth since opening 2020, Saturday could be another tough test for a Brighton side low on confidence and form.
