Newcastle vs Wolves Odds
Live on Sky Sports, Newcastle host Wolves in this Friday night Premier League clash at St. James' Park.
Newcastle vs Wolves Tips
The hosts currently sit 15th in the league table with 31pts and 7pts above the relegation zone. After a fantastic run of 8 games without a loss, the Magpies have now lost 3 consecutive Premier League games. Their last outing was a 5-1 loss against Tottenham where they completely collapsed defensively. However, they will take confidence from the fact that all three of these losses were away from home and back at St. James Park they will be looking to make it 4 consecutive home wins in a row.
The visitors come into this game in mixed form, having won 3 and lost 3 out of their last 6 league games. They currently sit 8th in the league table with 49pts and an outside chance of making the European spots if win almost every game from now till the end of the season. Interestingly, 5 of these sides’ last 6 head to head meetings have ended in a 1-1 draw and we could be in for another competitive affair when these two clash this Friday.
An intriguing clash awaits us and as usual I have it covered for you with 2 of my best betting angles included in the preview below:
Callum Wilson, Kieran Trippier, Ciaran Clark, Isaac Hayden & Jamal Lewis are out for Newcastle while Almiron, Willock & Federico Fernandez are doubtful.
Ki-Jana Hoever, Ruben Neves & Raul Jimenez are out for Wolves.
Newcastle possible starting lineup:
Dubravka; Krafth, Schar, Burn, Targett; Guimaraes, Shelvey, Joelinton; Murphy, Wood, Saint-Maximin
Wolves possible starting lineup:
Sa; Boly, Coady, Kilman; Jonny, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Marcal; Podence, F Silva, Trincao
- Over 0 goals in the match for Newcastle
- Over 0 cards in the 2nd half for Wolves
- Over 7.5 shots in the match for Newcastle
Newcastle have won their last 3 home games in a row and scored at least 1 goal in their last 5/5 here. They scored in the reverse leg in a 2-1 loss at the Molineux Stadium and have scored at least 1 goal against Wolves in their last 9 consecutive games in all competitions. Wolves have had a 2nd half card awarded to them in their last 4 consecutive premier league clashes and with the card-happy Peter Bankes as the ref, it is highly likely we will see quite a few cards dished out.
Finally, Newcastle average 12.7 shots per game at home and have cleared the “Over 7.5 shots” line in 8 of their last 9 home games, failing only against the league leaders Manchester City. Combining these 3 selections gives us a solid bet-builder @ 4/5 and I am happy to stake 1pt on that as our main bet for this Friday night clash.
3 of Newcastle’s last 4 wins have seen both teams score and with Ruben Neves & Raul Jimenez missing for the visitors, I am getting behind the hosts to get their 4th consecutive home win and move 10pts clear of the relegation zone. Take this bet with a small 0.25pt stake as our 2nd bet for this game.
Best of luck if you follow these selections. Please always gamble responsibly.
