Why you should back Brighton
The Seagulls have outscored Wolves 16-3 over the past four meetings, and that includes a 6-0 thrashing in the most recent match at Amex. Danny Welbeck and Pascal Gross each scored twice in that game, and Brighton had a 22-10 advantage in shots (8-2 on target). The hosts are 5-4-1 at home this season and have scored six more goals (22-16) and conceded five fewer (14-9) on their home turf. They are plus-8 in home goal differential, while Wolverhampton are minus-3 on the road.
Brighton are 4-3-1 in their past eight in all competitions and eased to a 4-2 victory against Stoke City in the FA Cup on Jan 6. Wolves had to replay their FA Cup match on Jan. 16 and won't be nearly as rested. Joao Pedro scored twice and Evan Ferguson also got on the board against Stoke, and they're the team's top scorers. Pedro has seven league goals and Ferguson has six, while Gross has six assists to go with his three goals. The Seagulls are second in the EPL in possession (61.1%). See which team to pick here.
Why you should back Wolves
Wolves are 5-2-1 in their past eight in all competitions and could be sharper after playing less than a week ago. Fatigue shouldn't be an issue with six days to recover from a 3-2 victory in an FA Cup third-round replay with Brentford on Jan. 16. Wolverhampton outshot the Bees 21-9, and Matheus Cunha scored the extra-time winner on a penalty in the 105th minute after Nelson Semedo scored and Nathan Fraser got the equalizer in the 72nd minute.
Cunha and midfielder Pedro Neto are the engines of the attack, with Cunha scoring six league goals and setting up five. Neto has seven assists, tied for third-most in the league, despite missing nine of the 20 games. He is expected to return from his hamstring injury. Top scorer Hwang Hee-chan (10 goals) is on AFC Asian Cup duty with South Korea. See which team to pick here.
