Newcastle visit Molineux this weekend sitting comfortably in fourth place after six games, a feat barely conceivable on the opening weekend of the Premier League.
Yet failure to attract a big-name signing to replace the departed Andy Carroll merely seems to have spurred on the remaining strike-force at St James Park.
Demba Ba enjoyed a fine match against Blackburn Rovers last weekend, making his mark on Tyneside by grabbing a hat-trick and securing maximum points for the Magpies in the process.
Having begun his Newcastle career hampered by the observation of Ramadan, Ba now appears reinvigorated and hungry for goals, much to the relief of the Toon Army faithful.
However, this should come as no surprise to his long-term admirers. After all, it was his impressive record of 37 goals from 97 games for Hoffenheim that attracted the interest of Premier League clubs earlier this year.
Bagging seven goals in 12 games for a West Ham team destined for relegation likewise spoke volumes about his versatility and determination.
Interestingly, Ba has just as frequently scored two goals in a Premier League game as he has just the one.
And with recent form suggesting he will hit the net again, punters should seriously consider backing him to register two or more goals against Wolves at 11/2.

Another man enjoying a positive start to the season for Newcastle is Leon Best.
A self-confessed obsessive over his goals-per-game ratio, Best has plenty to smile about, having netted nine goals from his past 16 games and grabbing three from his opening five games this season.
And with Ba now causing a tussle for the much-coveted but currently unoccupied number 9 Newcastle shirt, Best will be keen to make an instant impact against Wolves.
Odds of 13/2 for him to score first are therefore particularly enticing.
Wolves will not take this game lying down, however, and Mick McCarthy will be hoping for a return to the form that saw them secure seven points out of the opening nine.
Steven Fletcher has shown glimpses of the ability that helped him score four in the final month of the previous campaign, not least by securing a consolation against Liverpool last weekend.
Backing him at 6/1 to get the last goal of the game again could prove profitable.
