Tom Love has previewed the match up between Wolves and Newcastle and picked out one tip.
Wolves vs Newcastle
- Newcastle have failed to win any of their last 5 meetings with Wolves
- Wolves have seen under 2.5 goals in 10 of their last 12 premier league games
- Wolves have kept a clean sheet in 7 of their last 9 home matches in the premier league
- 5 of the last 6 games between these two at Molineux have seen under 2.5 goals
Wolves were dominated in the first half last week against Leeds but managed to hold out at 0-0 until half time, Nuno’s men then got a grapple on the game and were the more threatening and came back home with a 1-0 victory and all three points. They’ll be hoping to get on a run now and have a great chance to kick on against a Newcastle side that were battered at home to an out of form Manchester United side last week.
Steve Bruce tends to set his side up in a defensive formation away at the better sides in the league, it can be a tough watch for the Toon army. They did scrape a late draw at Spurs last month but it was far from a deserved one, it does usually mean their away games tend to be low scoring and given how many Wolves games end with few goals it might be a pretty drab encounter.
Tip: Wolves to win and under 3.5 goals
Wolves are deserved odds-on favourites here but we can get 13/10 on a home win and under 3.5 goals and that looks a worthy boost given how this game is expected to play out.
