Newcastle v Wolves Betting Preview

Wolverhampton Wanderers are riding a wave of positive momentum as they head to Newcastle United for their Premier League encounter this Saturday. With Wolves currently in impressive form, they stand a good chance of coming away from Newcastle, who have been somewhat off the pace recently, without a defeat.

Newcastle United have been finding it tough to hit their stride, with only two victories in their last nine Premier League outings. This spell has seen them endure five losses, including a significant 4-1 defeat to Arsenal in their last league match.

Battling a substantial injury roster, Newcastle’s performances haven’t lived up to the previous season’s standards, leaving them a point behind Wolves in the league standings. Nonetheless, there’s a glimmer of optimism for the Magpies following their advance to the FA Cup quarter-finals after a penalty shootout win against Blackburn Rovers.

One particular concern for Newcastle has been their form at St James’ Park, where they haven’t won in their last four attempts. Eddie Howe’s squad has drawn their last two home games, including a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth in their most recent match in front of their own supporters.

On the other hand, Wolverhampton Wanderers are among the Premier League’s in-form teams, securing victories in four of their last five matches across all competitions. Their recent successes include a 1-0 win over Sheffield United in the league and a similar narrow victory against Brighton in the FA Cup fifth round.

Since the start of the year, Wolves have found a consistent vein of form, potentially setting the stage for a late push towards European qualification spots. Currently positioned ninth, Gary O’Neil’s team is nine points away from the top five but hasn’t given up hope.

Wolves have particularly excelled in their away games, remaining unbeaten in their last six on the road and winning the three most recent matches in this sequence.

For Newcastle, Anthony Gordon has found the net twice in his last three appearances and is available at 12/5 to score again. Alexander Isak, Newcastle’s top scorer with 10 league goals, is another one to watch, with odds of 13/10 for him to score.

Wolves’ Hwang Hee-Chan, also with 10 league goals to his name, scored in the reverse fixture and is priced at 23/10 to find the back of the net on Saturday.
