Wolves v Newcastle United Tips: Benitez masterclass incoming?

| 08.02.2019

The Premier League weekend ends at Molineux tonight as Wolverhampton Wanderers host Newcastle United.

Newcastle scored a big win over Manchester City two weeks ago and can push three points clear of the relegation zone with a victory here.

But they face a formidable Wolves side that have a habit of scoring late goals this season.

Stick around for all the odds and key info ahead of the big clash…

Match Odds

The home side bagged a 2-1 win at St. James’ Park in December, with Matt Doherty grabbing a 94th minute winner.

Wolves are 4/5 in the match betting for victory. But the Toon have looked a little more refreshed in the last month and are 18/5 to score their third league away win of the season.

You can find the outright draw at 23/10. Both teams to score with the game ending in stalemate is at 4/1.

Talking Tactics

Newcastle United fans will be excited to watch their record signing Miguel Almiron for the first time.

Gaffer Rafael Benitez will have to decide whether he plays the Paraguayan from the start or use him from the subs bench.

Salomon Rondon should lead the line for the Magpies, and Paul Dummett’s return to fitness should mean Matt Ritchie pushes forward.

Wolves’ Diogo Jota will hope to shake off a knock suffered against Everton to line-up alongside Raul Jimenez.

Ruben Neves and Leander Dendoncker have been key men in the last few months and could be important to unlocking the Toon’s defence here.

Goalscorer odds

The home side’s hit-man Jimenez has four goals in his last three games and is 7/5 to bag anytime tonight.

Nuno Espirito Santo was looking for a new forward in the January transfer window, but Jota has been banging in the goals too.

The Portuguese striker is 13/2 to hit the onion bag on two or more occasions.

Almiron is 9/2 to bag anytime, with Rondon at 2/1 and Newcastle defender Fabian Schar at 7/1 to hit the net at some point.
