Brighton v Wolves: Predictions, team news, stats & more

Only three points separate eighth-placed Brighton and Wolves, who are 11th, going onto their Monday night meeting at the Amex in the Premier League.

Both sides approach the clash in similar form with the Seagulls unbeaten in their last four and Wolves having not lost any of their last five matches in all competitions.

It seems likely both teams will score on the night and our 15/4 Bet Builder selections also include a goal for Brighton striker Joao Pedro and at least one shot on target for another in-form forward, Wolves' Matheus Cunha.

Brighton v Wolves Bet Builder 

Both teams to score - 8/13 
Joao Pedro to score anytime - 7/5 
Matheus Cunha to have over 0.5 shots on target - 4/6 

Bet Builder – 15/4
 

Both teams to score - 8/13

With both teams in decent attacking shape heading into Monday's game, backing the two to score seems a good starting point for the Bet Builder.

Brighton have scored in 22 successive home fixtures in all competitions, scoring 52 goals in total in that run.

Brighton scored four goals for the second time in three games last time out when they won 4-2 at Championship side Stoke City in the FA Cup third round - the same scoreline they defeated Tottenham by at home between Christmas and new year.

They did draw a blank when being held 0-0 by West Ham at the start of the year but only twice in their last 20 games in all competitions have the south coast side failed to score, so they can usually be relied upon when it comes to goals.

Wolves have also been among the goals of late and have hit three or more in three of their last four matches - a fine 4-1 win at Brentford over the festive period followed by a 3-0 home success over Everton and their 3-2 FA Cup third round replay victory over the Bees last week.
 

Joao Pedro to score anytime - 7/5

Joao Pedro is having an outstanding campaign for Brighton with the former Watford striker on 15 goals for the season in all games following his second-half double in the 4-2 cup win at Stoke.

The 22-year-old also hit a brace in the win over Spurs recently, on that occasion both goals coming from the penalty spot, and he represents Brighton's biggest threat in the final third.

Across the campaign so far, Joao Pedro has taken 56 shots, of which 19 have been on target, and the Brazilian will hope to further justify his £30m price-tag by getting at least another goal against Gary O'Neil's side.
 

Matheus Cunha - over 0.5 shots on target - 4/6

After a bit of a slow start to the season, Cunha has shone for Wolves in recent weeks and he's now managed seven goals so far for the club following his permanent move from Atletico Madrid in the summer.

Cunha had four shots, all of which were on target, in the FA Cup replay win over Brentford on Tuesday so is clearly full of confidence and could well be the man to hurt Brighton on Monday.
 

Brighton Team News

Brighton remain without several players as Joel Veltman, Tariq Lamptey, Ansu Fati, Solly March and Julio Enciso are all still sidelined by injury.

Simon Adingra and Kaoru Mitoma are on international duty at the Africa Cup of Nations and Asian Cup respectively but centre-back Igor could be back in the squad after recovering from an Achilles injury.
 

Wolves Team News

Wolves winger Pedro Neto is hoping to make his first start since October but midfielder Joao Gomes is suspended and Hwang Hee-chan, Rayan Ait-Nouri and Boubacar Traore are all unavailable as they're on international duty.
 

Brighton v Wolves Stats

Brighton have won the last four meetings between the sides and last season won 4-1 at Molineux and 6-0 at home, the latter result being their biggest ever Premier League victory and, conversely, Wolves' heaviest ever Premier League defeat.

Wolves have won their last three league games and are aiming to win four successive top-flight fixtures for the first time since January 1972.
