Wolves v Newcastle Betting Tips: Can Magpies end Wolves’ winning run?

| 11.02.2019

Odds and preview for Premier League clash

Will Wolverhampton Wanderers finish their first season back in the top flight as the best of the rest?

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side can move four points clear of Everton in eighth when Newcastle United come to town tonight. But the Magpies will be determined to move clear of the drop zone with a win.

Newcastle fans will get a first chance to see record signing Miguel Almiron in action too. Will he make the difference here? Tune in at 8:00pm on Sky Sports Premier League, but keep reading to warm up with the key odds and info…


A last-gasp Matt Doherty strike sealed a 2-1 win for Wolves when these sides met in December. But Newcastle’s recent record at Molineux will give them plenty of belief.

They haven’t lost on any of their last four visits to Wolves – a run stretching back to 2003.

Likely XIs

Wolves v Newcastle teams

Wolves will hope that Diogo Jota recovers from a knock to start in attack. He’s chipped in with three goals and two assists in his last three outings.

If he can’t make it, Adama Traore could fill in alongside Raul Jimenez. With Wolves on a three-game winning run, Nuno isn’t likely to make too many other changes.

Almiron’s debut is the big talking point for Newcastle. Benitez will hope the playmaker can provide Salomon Rondon with the service he craves.

Ki Sung-Yeung could also return to the starting XI, though Isaac Hayden and Sean Longstaff have done well in his absence.

Key Battles

Wolves have impressed against the big teams this term. But they can find it hard to break down teams that don’t give them space in behind.

Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho will pull the strings, but can they unlock the Magpies backline?

Newcastle will be solid and well-organised. And in Almiron, they could have an added creative spark on the counter.

If he can get the ball into Salomon Rondon, the visitors can cause plenty of problems.

Match Odds

Wolves are 5/6 favourites, with Newcastle 19/5 to get a vital win. Our traders have the draw at 12/5.

These sides have only kept two clean sheets between them since the turn of the year. We go 21/20 for Both Teams to Score, with Over 2.5 Goals for the fourth game running at Molineux a 5/4 shot.

With three goals in his last two league outings, Raul Jimenez heads the First Goalscorer betting at 7/2. His strike partner Jota is 7/4 to net at any point.

Rondon is Newcastle’s likeliest scorer at 2/1 anytime, with Ayoze Perez going for 4/1. Fancy Almiron to mark his debut with a goal? He’s 9/2 to do just that.
