Wolves v Newcastle betting tips: Wolves firing Molineux blanks
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
Wolves seek a first home win and a first goal at Molineux this season as they take on the Magpies, so we check the odds in a quest to find some Wolves v Newcastle betting tips.
Bruno Lage’s side won their second road game of the season when downing Southampton last weekend, while Newcastle were held at Watford and seek their first victory of the season.
Saturday’s match, which takes place at Molineux, kicks off at 3pm.
Wolves v Newcastle match odds
Wolves have lost each of their last four Premier League home games, last losing more consecutively at Molineux between January and April 2012 (nine).
Lage’s side have lost to Tottenham, Manchester United and Brentford at home this season and have not managed to score in any of those games, although they did manage to score twice against Spurs in their League Cup third-round clash despite going out on penalties after a 2-2 draw.
Wolves, who sit in 14th place in the table with six points from six games, are 7/10 to earn three points from this clash.
Newcastle have drawn three and lost three of their opening six matches and were pegged back by Watford after Sean Longstaff had given the Magpies a first-half lead at Vicarage Road.
Steve Bruce’s side are fourth from bottom, with three points, and are 17/4 to win.
The draw is available at 14/5 and it is worth noting that the last five league meetings between the two sides – and eight of the last 12 – have finished 1-1.

Wolves v Newcastle head-to-head
Wolves have not won any of their last seven home league games against Newcastle (D5 L2) since a 1-0 victory in the second tier in April 1993. It is 6/5 that Newcastle either win or draw the match on the Double Chance market in the Wolves v Newcastle betting tips.
However, Newcastle have won just one of their last nine league games against Wolves, winning 1-0 at Molineux in February 2017 in the Championship. It is 2/7 for Wolves to win on the Draw No Bet market.
Both teams have scored in all 12 Premier League meetings and it is 4/5 that both teams score this time.
In just four of the last 15 competitive meetings have there been three or more goals scored in total, and it is therefore 10/11 that under 2.5 goals will be scored this time.
Wolves v Newcastle key battles
The home side are slow starters, underlined by the fact that they are yet to score a goal in the first half of a game in the Premier League this season.
Indeed, over their last 25 Premier League matches, Wolves have scored in the first half on just four occasions. It is 19/10 that Newcastle score the first goal and 9/5 that a goal will not be scored in the first half.
Wolves striker Raúl Jiménez scored his first Premier League goal in almost a year in their win at Southampton. His last goal at Molineux in the Premier League came against Newcastle, in October 2020, and he is 5/4 to score at any time.
Newcastle are waiting on Joe Willock to find his form. The ex-Arsenal player scored in each of his last seven Premier League appearances last season when on loan, but he is yet to score this term and is 9/2 to break his duck at any time.
