Newcastle United vs Wolves Prediction
Despite taking down Manchester United in their previous home game, the Magpies failed to recreate a winning performance in their last trip on the road to Stamford Bridge and came off at the losing end of a 1-0 scorecard. The hosts have come out on top just once in their past six games as well. And have garnered no more than five points from a possible fifteen in the process.
If it weren’t for Norwich and Watford, Steve Bruce’s men would have hit rock bottom in the table by now.
Wolves, on the other hand, are on a promising run at the moment, especially in the Premier League. The away side have not admitted defeat in any of their last four domestic clashes, the last of which saw them share the spoils with Southampton at home. Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have not been showing any signs of slowing down on the road either, and are currently unbeaten in their last two league outings.
Their most recent away game, in particular, was one which deserves praise, considering that they slotted two unanswered goals past the reigning champions to walk away with all three points. With Newcastle boasting just one win at home so far, the evident favorites to win are undoubtedly Wolves.
However, the hosts have forced their foes to share the spoils with them in two of their last three games here. Given that two of the previous five outings for Wolves have also ended in a draw, the safest punt would have to be a double chance backing Wolves.
Furthermore, the visitors have been resilient at the back, and have kept a clean sheet twice so far in the Premier League. Meanwhile, the Magpies hold the record for the least number of goals scored on home soil at the moment.
Taking into account that Wolves have also netted just five times on the road, count on a low scoring affair in this one.
