Wolves v Newcastle betting tips and odds

Wolves are 4/6 favourites to make it three wins in four by defeating a Newcastle team that are still searching for their first win of the season.

Raul Jimenez scored his first goal since fracturing his skull against Arsenal 10 months ago to give Wolves a 1-0 win at Southampton last time out, while the Magpies drew their second game in a row at Watford.

Steve Bruce’s Newcastle side are 17/4 to get their first win on the board but let’s look at some of the other markets and odds in our Wolves v Newcastle betting tips.

Match Odds

Newcastle have drawn their last two games 1-1 and remarkably that has been the outcome in the last five meetings with Wolves.

A share of the spoils is priced at 14/5 and a sixth successive 1-1 draw is available at 6/1, while we go 19/5 on a point apiece and goals at both ends in Saturday’s Wolves v Newcastle betting tips.

However, Wolves have lost all three home games without scoring and strangely all six of their matches have involved the home team failing to score.

With that in mind, we go 10/11 on at least one team not to score and it’s 17/2 on the visitors winning to nil, although it should be borne in mind that Bruce has yet to deliver a clean sheet this season.

All six of Wolves’ matches have produced two goals or fewer which can be backed at 10/11 and Wolves to win either 1-0 or 2-0 is available at 29/10.

In the half-time markets these sides have been level at the break in five of the last six meetings which is 11/10 but a goalless opening 45 minutes is 9/5.

Talking Tactics

Wolves manager Bruno Lage is likely to stick with a 3-4-3 which brought a 1-0 win at Southampton where Jimenez was the focal point in attack, flanked by Daniel Podence and Hwang Hee-chan, making his first start in the Premier League.

Bruce abandoned a five-man defence for the trip to Vicarage Road, going with a 4-1-4-1 in which Allan Saint-Maximin led the line and Isaac Hayden played the holding midfield role.

Joelinton played on the left wing and Miguel Almiron started on the right, with Sean Longstaff and Joe Willock in the middle.

Goalscorer Odds

Jimenez is 5/4 to build on his winner at St Mary’s by scoring against the Magpies or the Mexican is 16/5 to break the deadlock in our Wolves v Newcastle betting tips.

Leander Dendoncker was on target against Tottenham in the Carabao Cup last week and scored in this fixture two seasons ago, so we go 15/2 and 3/1 in the two markets.

Saint-Maximin heads the first goalscorer market from the Newcastle contingent at 17/2 or he’s 10/3 to find the net, while Longstaff is 10/1 to score in back-to-back games.
