Newcastle United vs Wolves betting tips: Preview, predictions & odds

Newcastle is back to struggling ways of late, having lost their last two and four from six overall in recent weeks. No Callum Wilson makes their task of taking on a Wolves outfit that has been closer to the side from the previous two seasons makes this a difficult home defense at St. James' Park.

Betting prediction: Newcastle United 0-1 Wolves

A Newcastle United outfit robbed of Callum Wilson is one that will struggle, even when they perform to a decent level in the way they did against Manchester United. Wolves are in very good form at the minute (3-1-0 in their last four) but have only managed five goals in their last six in the form table (3-2-1). This matchup screams scrappy 1-0 win for either side, but I’ll go with Wolves.

Result/Both Teams to Score: Wolves – No

Given the nature of the goalscoring struggles of the sides in question, it’s hard to see anything other than just the single goal separating them come the end of ninety-minutes. Wolves’ form should be enough to get them over the line, even if it simply comes down to individual quality at the end of the day.

To Score First: Pedro Neto

Willian José has improved his play overall, but consistent performances in the final third still elude the big centre forward. Pedro Neto, even without Raúl Jiménez fit, has still been just about Wolves’ best performer all season long. He’s the clubs leading goal-scorer this term as well, and it may take an individual moment from him to break a deadlock.

Newcastle United vs Wolves: Match preview

What no one wants to witness again seems to be the way the wind is blowing of late; Newcastle is very much in danger of being relegated yet again. In what would be the third time in the last thirteen years, one of the most well-supported and iconic Premier League sides is on the cusp of dropping down to the Championship. What is frustrating for most – if not all – is that it is entirely of their own making. From ownership to management, and player performance, the days of Alan Shearer, Nolberto Solano, Gary Speed, Shay Given, and Faustino Asprilla are long gone.

Ultimately, the club has to look at the type of manager they bring into the club to guide it. Steve Bruce, a Premier League icon in his own right, was never the right man for the job especially in the wake of the popular Rafa Benitez who – at the very least – was more capable of getting the best out of his players. Everything at Newcastle this season seems to be a bit slapdash, to steal a word from Eddie Izzard. And it has been discussed before that on paper, perhaps there are enough pieces at the club for Bruce to be getting a better tune out of the band, even by a couple of percentage points.

And despite the criticisms that can and should be levied in Bruce’s direction, ownership is where the buck truly stops; literally. Mike Ashley – no matter who is on the touchline – will be a constant thorn in the side of the club…the entire city, in all honesty. When things continue to sit in a pool of negativity under one man’s watch, it is impossible to argue that the greatest problem is that one man. It is vital that Newcastle remain in the Premier League this season, especially with the level of competition and quality that is truly beginning to show in the Championship. Failing to avoid the drop this term could potentially be catastrophic; it is very hard for clubs to drop down and immediately shoot back up again despite Newcastle perpetrating that on two occasions. A vital result against Wolves is required this weekend, and if no points are collected in conjunction with a Fulham three-point haul against Crystal Palace, the Magpies are in the drop zone without a guarantee that they can claw their way out of yet another pickle.

It’s not pretty, but it will do for Wolves

There was a period during this season that seemed as though the wheels were finally going to fall off the Wolves bus with Nuno Espirito Santo at the wheel. One of the surprises of the Premier League when they were promoted three seasons ago, back-to-back seventh-place finishes and a pipeline of Portuguese talents to an unexpected destination was a much-needed addition to a league that seemed destined to read from the same script year on year. But after a decent start to the season (4-1-2), Wolves went on a fourteen-match run that only featured two wins (2-4-8), against Chelsea and Arsenal by the same scoreline.

The absence of Raúl Jiménez through injury, and the sale of Diogo Jota, could not have come at a worse juncture for Santo and Wolves during a season where so many clubs around them have performed seemingly beyond their maximum capacity while they struggled in uncharacteristic fashion. Whether if it is because they have tried to be more than a well-drilled counter-attacking side or not is hard to say, but their current mini-run of four (3-1-0) that began with their 2-1 win against Arsenal has also seen them pick up results against Leicester City, Southampton, and Leeds United. This current period smacks of Wolves from the previous two seasons; they may not score a ton of goals but they will grind out wins and there are few if any that will complain about it.

What has been vital for the club in the absence of Jiménez and arguably the chief reason why Jota was sold to Liverpool, was to give the platform for youngster Pedro Neto to thrive as a first-choice option at the club. He’s delivered in spades. Though his data return does not speak to a player who has set the world alight, the SC Braga product has been superb all season long. The nature of his influence when on the ball, and his ability to drive Wolves forward despite his tender age has been fantastic considering he is still just twenty years old. Much like Bukayo Saka at Arsenal, Wolves are also relying on a youngster to help them achieve something this season, and though it may not come in the form of silverware, getting back on the right track and not lamenting the parting of ways with Jota is still very important.

Newcastle United team news vs Wolves

Javier Manquillo, Fabian Schär, and Callum Wilson remain unavailable for selection for Steve Bruce. Federico Fernández could be back for the weekend, however.

Joelinton and Paul Dummett remain doubts, and there is the possibility of Martin Dubravka being reinstated into the matchday XI as well.

 

Wolves team news vs Newcastle United

Nuno Espirito Santo is still without Raúl Jiménez and Willy Boly, and now adds Daniel Podence to the list as well.

Marçal is a large doubt for the weekend after coming off injured against Leeds United last weekend, but apart from that, little change is expected to the side that beat Leeds.
