Wolves vs Newcastle: Past meetings point to stalemate

Kick-off: 1500, 02/10/2021

Stadium: Molineux

Punters who like to base their bets on head-to-head form will not take long to figure out their selection for Wolves versus Newcastle.

The last five Premier League meetings between these teams have all ended in stalemate, with 1-1 the scoreline on each occasion.

We’re happy to follow the trend and take 16/5 for yet another draw as our first Wolves vs Newcastle prediction.

A Look At Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Betting Odds

Wolves are coming off an emotional second win of the season, with Raul Jimenez netting for the first time since suffering a fractured skull to secure a 1-0 victory at Southampton.

The 30-year-old Mexico forward ended a 336-day wait to score again in superb fashion, slipping past two defenders before calmly slotting the ball home.

New boss Bruno Lage said: “I saw since the first day that he was a guy with a big ambition and hungry to come back to play to score goals for us.”

Jimenez added on Wolves TV: “It means a lot; a lot of hard work during this nine months. I have to keep working like this, I have to be focused on what I want.

“I wanted this and I wanted to finish the puzzle. Now I am going to keep working to continue with this, keep scoring and helping the team to have more points.”

Jimenez struck 44 times in all competitions across his first two seasons at Molineux and repeatedly scored goals in bunches.

With his confidence restored, there is plenty of appeal in 10/3 for him to break the deadlock again here from the Wolves vs Newcastle odds.

It should be noted, though, that Wanderers were also indebted to Jose Sa for making several fine saves at St Mary’s Stadium!

Last Wolves line-up: Jose Sa, Marcal, Coady, Semedo, Kilman, Podence, Saiss, Moutinho, Dendoncker, Jimenez, Hwang.

Defender Yerson Mosquera is expected to be out for up to five months with a hamstring injury.

Pedro Neto (knee) and Jonny (knee) remain long-term absentees but Rayan Ait-Nouri could return after concussion.

A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds

Newcastle are only above the relegation zone on goal difference after failing to win any of their first six top-flight fixtures.

However, Steve Bruce will be buoyed by a run of three draws in the last four league outings, while they were also competitive in a 4-1 loss at Manchester United until late on.

Having already shared the spoils with Southampton and Leeds, the Magpies picked up another point in a 1-1 stalemate at Watford.

Sean Longstaff put United ahead on 23 minutes with a curled 20-yard strike, but Ismaila Sarr levelled for the Hornets in the second half.

Bruce believes Newcastle are playing well enough, commenting: “We are creating chances, the hard part of the game we’re doing, we know we’re a threat.

“We’ve got to be a bit more clinical, that’s for sure, but in terms of how we played, we’ve done enough to win three games in my opinion.”

Yet more injury problems haven’t helped, but the Magpies do look dangerous on the break with the pace of Allan Saint-Maximin and Joelinton.

For now, however, let’s finish off our Wolves vs Newcastle betting tips by taking 7/1 for a sixth straight 1-1 draw between these sides.

Last Newcastle line-up: Darlow, Clark, Fernandez, Manquillo, Ritchie, Hayden, Almiron, Willock, Longstaff, Joelinton, Saint-Maximin.

Newcastle will have none of their wounded troops back for the trip to Molineux.

Midfielder Joe Willock suffered no reaction to his surprise inclusion in the starting line-up at Watford a day after being ruled out with a toe injury, while Martin Dubravka is expected to return to training after a foot problem in the next week.
