Newcastle – Wolves is one of the most interesting games of this weekend in the Championship, although there are lots of things pointing towards a home victory.
In these moments, we tend to predict a home win as well, but we all know that sometimes the clearest of bets can be ruined in the most surprising ways. Let’s see if Wolverhampton Wanderers have what it takes to produce such an upset.
Newcastle vs Wolverhampton
It is worth mentioning that they haven’t met Newcastle lots of times in recent history, but have never won a domestic game against them. Their only win came in the Capital One Cup back in 2003, and since then, Newcastle has never lost against the orange jerseys.
This season, Wolves seem like a perfect mid table team – 2 wins, 3 draws, 2 losses, 8-9 goal difference, no big goalscorer, no huge objective. Just another year in the English Championship for the Wolves.
On the other hand, Rafa Benitez surprised everyone by remaining at Newcastle this year, and results are quickly coming his way.
His team now has 5 straight wins, including a most recent 6-0 thrashing of QPR, and it seems like nothing can stop them in their quest for direct promotion back in the Premier League.
They also have home ground advantage, tradition advantage and are on a clear high – along with having Dwight Gayle in great form. What more can Newcastle want?
Newcastle vs Wolverhampton Betting Tips
We strongly believe Newcastle will win this game. We would even go out of our way to predict a 2 goal victory or more, but we strongly believe you should profit and place your bet on Newcastle as soon as possible.
Odds are quickly decreasing due to more and more players betting on Benitez’s side , so hurry – at least bet that the home team will score, if you want a lower odd but better chance of victory.
Newcastle (-1): 2.40 or 7/5
