Wolverhampton looked very good in a 2-0 win Monday over Sheffield United.
Brighton & Hove Albion also played well against Chelsea, but ended up on the wrong end of a 3-1 result. We think both should bounce back Thursday in the second round of the EFL Carabao Cup, and could be a good bet to combine as a parlay to get even better odds.
If you want to really get adventurous, you can bet a couple of heavy favorites from the UEFA Europa League Third Round qualifiers with those two teams, and maybe hit a bigger parlay.

Wolverhampton (-160) vs. Stoke City (+480), draw (+275), 2 p.m. EDT
Brighton & Hove Albion (-145) vs. Portsmouth (+430), draw (+265), 2:45 p.m.
I like Wolves win to keep a clean sheet (+115), Wolves -0.75 (-120), Brighton ML (-139), and a two-team parlay between both MLs that pays +175.
