Newcastle have been dragged into a relegation battle after losing eight of their last 10 Premier League matches but can pick up a precious point versus Wolves.
Past meetings between these teams have produced four consecutive draws and we reckon another is on the cards at St James’ Park this weekend.
We’re snapping up 9/4 for a stalemate as our first Newcastle vs Wolves prediction.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle went down 3-1 at Manchester United last Sunday but were very competitive for the first hour of that contest.
Allan Saint-Maximin cancelled out Marcus Rashford’s opener with a fine strike, but second-half goals from Daniel James and Bruno Fernandes proved decisive.
Steve Bruce commented: “We’re disappointed but I can take a lot of positives from it, especially the first hour of the performance.
“I think Allan had a big chance when it was one each and unfortunately (David) De Gea saved it.
“For long periods, I was pleased, but we’ve got to put the whole thing together and get a few results, of course.”
The Magpies are only three points above the drop zone but have beaten Everton and Southampton in the past four weeks.
A fifth straight 1-1 draw with Wanderers would not be a bad result here so 23/4 for that scoreline to come up again appeals from the Newcastle vs Wolves odds.
Last Newcastle line-up: Darlow, Clark, Lascelles, Lewis, Krafth, Shelvey, Hayden, Almiron, Willock, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin.
A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds
Wolves have put together a nice little run of results, picking up 10 points out of 12 from their last four league outings.
However, they have enjoyed the rub of the green during those matches, including when beating Leeds 1-0 at Molineux.
That game was settled by a bizarre own goal, as Adama Traore’s second-half strike came back off the crossbar and hit goalkeeper Illan Meslier before rolling over the line.
Traore insisted Wolves have rediscovered their pack mentality, telling the club website: “This character shows how tough we work through the 90 minutes.
“The strikers, the midfielders, the defenders, I think that character is important, back with that feeling we are a pack, that is the mentality.”
However, defeat was harsh on Leeds, who had a goal disallowed by a narrow offside call, hit the post and forced Rui Patricio into a couple of cracking saves.
Before that, Wanderers had gone 14 league games without scoring first, so 7/5 for the Magpies to break the deadlock here is worth adding to our Newcastle vs Wolves betting tips.
Last Wolves line-up: Patricio, Coady, Jonny, Semedo, Neves, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Neto, Jose, Traore.
