Newcastle vs Wolves
England – League Championship

Kick-Off: 15:00 UK
Venue: St. Andrew’s, Birmingham.

Newcastle United will be looking for their 6th straight league win this season when they welcome Wolverhampton Wanderers for the matchday eight fixture on Saturday evening.

The Background

The Magpies thrashed QPR 6-0 away from home on Tuesday to register their fifth consecutive win of the season Rafa Benitez managed side lost the first two league games of the season, but they haven’t looked back since and scored 15 goals in last 5 matches and kept a clean sheet in the last 4. They are currently second in the league table, a point below early leaders Huddersfield Town.

Walter Zenga’s side suffered a heavy 4-0 loss at home to Barnsley in the mid-week, with all goals falling in the last 17 minutes. Wolves have lost twice this season, with both defeats coming inside the last three matches. And they have won 2 and drawn 3 so far and are 17th in the league table with 9 points from 7 matches.

Newcastle vs Wolves: Head-to-Head Stats

Newcastle United are unbeaten in the last 6 meetings against Wolves with 2 wins and 4 draws.

Both teams have scored in each of the last 6 meetings and the last 4 matches have seen over 2.5 goals.

Newcastle vs Wolves: Prediction

Newcastle United have started firing from all cylinders and are looking good for a top of the table finish. With the kind of form they are in at the moment, they are expected to ease past a Wolves side who are win-less in their last three matches.

There is a gap of four seasons since these have met in a competitive match. So I would like to bypass the head-to-head stats for my betting tips. Newcastle have kept clean sheets in the last four matches, so the chances of both teams to score and over 2.5 goals are very negligible.

Newcastle vs Wolves: Bet Tips

Newcastle to win at 3/5 (1.60)
Newcastle to score over 1.5 goals at 8/11 (1.72).
Dwight Gayle of Newcastle to score anytime at 6/4 (2.50).
