Mark Lawrenson backed Brighton to beat Wolves 2-0 on Sunday, in his regular prediction piece for BBC Sport.
The game should be something of a dead rubber.
Brighton look to have sealed safety with last weekend’s 2-0 victory over Leeds and Wolves are marooned in mid-table.
January’s meeting between the two sides was a thrilling 3-3 draw, as Wolves let a 3-1 lead slip in the second half.
“It is usually Brighton who struggle to score a second goal to finish games off, but they did that in impressive style to beat Leeds last week,” wrote Lawrenson.
“Instead, it is Wolves who are finding goals hard to come by – they have managed two in the same game only once in their past 10 matches.

“Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are basically waiting for the season to end, and it has been a disappointing one for them.
“I am going with Brighton to win here. They are basically safe now and, because of that, they might play with a bit of freedom. 0-2.”
Wolves need to improve on their last home display, the 4-0 home defeat to Burnley.
Brighton are dangerous opponents and cannot be taken lightly.
Nuno Espirito Santo gave his young players an opportunity against West Brom and was rewarded with an energetic performance containing some bright spots.
He needs to see something similar if Lawrenson’s prediction is to be proved wrong.
