Tip Newcastle - Wolves
With the quality in the Wolves side, the team newly promoted from the Championship was expected to challenge for a top four position but while they have had some flashes of brilliance, there has been some form of inconsistency in their run. They have picked just four points from a possible 21 matches – in their last seven and this game against Newcastle should be winnable for Wolves. Newcastle had a horror start to the campaign but in the last few matches, managed to wake from their slumber, picking three wins, with two at home. Two of their three wins in the league this season, have come at home and The Magpies have managed 10 points from a possible 15 in the last five matches and while they meet a Wolves side straight from an impressive win over a top four side, they will be the more confident, and especially since they will be playing at home. However, Newcastle will have to be at their best defensively, having managed one clean sheet in their eight Premier League home matches and playing a Wolves side that has scored six goals in their last five matches. Wolves have managed two wins in the seven away league matches they have played this season and they head to this clash winless in the last three away league matches, which somehow places them as underdogs, but going by the comeback against Chelsea we can’t write them off too fast. Newcastle have won in the last two meetings with Wolves and none of the last three matches between the two has yielded over 2.5 goals. Newcastle have won five of the last 10 meetings with Wolves while Wolves have one win, with four matches ending in draws. Of the 69 meetings between the two sides, Newcastle have 28 wins and Wolves 26.

Conclusion Newcastle - Wolves
Wolves are from an impactful win and they will want to carry this to the game but they meet a Newcastle side also keen to get back to their winning ways after a loss and a draw that stopped their run. Wolves have not had much going their way in this fixture against Newcastle and going by their run, we don’t expect that they will get much here. Newcastle have one loss against Wolves in the last 10 meetings and we expect another win for them, but with an under 2.5 goals return.
