- Wolves are unbeaten in their last 6 games against Newcastle.
Betting Tip: Correct Score 1-1
Saturday night football comes from St James’ Park as Newcastle try edge further out of relegation trouble. Fulham’s ability to pick up points has meant the Magpies are still in serious danger of slipping into the bottom three and they’ll be hell bent on picking up points in fixtures like these. The Toon Army have generally been ok at home against the lesser lights, they’ve avoided defeat in half their home games this season and even the odd point here and there will be seen as a positive.
Wolves themselves have had a slightly underwhelming season but more so since the loss of talismanic striker Raul Jimenez. They initially failed to adapt to life without him but have picked up some decent results in recent times with 3 wins in their last 6. Their games are usually very tight and cagey and it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the shares spoiled on Tyneside.
The draw looks short enough at 9/4 so I’ll plump for the 1-1 correct score at 6/1. It’s actually landed in the last 3 meetings between these two, 3 of Newcastle’s 4 draws this term as well as half of Wolves’ draws this season.
Betting Tip: Leander Dendoncker to be Carded
With Willy Boly out injured, Leander Dendoncker could fill in at right sided centre half, if so I like the 13/2 about him being carded. The Belgian averages the second most fouls per game for the Old Gold and will be up directly against the tricky Allan Saint-Maximin. 13/2 looks overpriced.
Newcastle vs Wolves Odds
Wolves have seen a major improvement in form recently and because of this have become favourites for this contest with best odds of 11/8.
