Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Betting Tips: Form Guide

Newcastle United Just About Keep Their Heads Above Water

While Newcastle United still have some breathing room between themselves and the relegation zone, all that is stopping them from slipping further down and back to where they so desperately don’t want to be is a few points. Right now, every game is vital for them. Unfortunately, they haven’t always been playing like that is the case. Before we get to that though, let’s look at the positives.

Last month, they had a sensational trio of victories, toppling Watford 1-0, as well as Burnley and Bournemouth 2-1 apiece. We imagine if it weren’t for this break, the Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers match previews might not view this contest as such a close call. It felt, tentatively, like a turning point following an utterly miserable run of 10 games without a win to start the season.  

Sadly, a comfortable 3-0 victory for West Ham swiftly brought Newcastle United back down to earth. Despite a quality performance, a 1-1 draw with Everton wasn’t bright enough to silence the doubters either, although a brilliant display by the enigmatic Jacob Murphy must be a spot of hope for the struggling side. Newcastle has shown promise, but they need to act now to avoid missing out on their potential.

Wolverhampton Wanderers Come Back From A Recent Dry Spell

With most recently promoted teams, there’s always an anxiety about their ability to swim in the bigger pool. Considering just how utterly Wolves dominated the lower league though, many hoped this would be a different story.

Things started off well with an entertaining 2-2 draw with Everton, and although a 2-0 loss to Leicester was a disappointment, they played well. A further 1-1 draw against defending champions Manchester City continued to give the side hope. This promise was then backed up by a string of impressive results. They beat West Ham and Burnley back-to-back in 1-0 results, and once again dragged a draw from a top side in Manchester United, which ended 1-1.

Further wins against Southampton – which ended 2-0 with help from a debuting Ivan Cavalero – and a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace made it feel like they really were breaking the mould.

Sadly, the wheels began to come off here, as they then went on a dreadful six-game winless streak – five of which ended in defeat. This led many critics to believe that Wolves were struggling with the consistency needed in the Premier League. This is a view we’ve no doubt will have influenced many Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers betting tips. However, their last match saw them shock Chelsea 2-1and prove themselves a threat once more.

Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Preview: Recent Meetings

Owing to the movement by both these teams, there’s not actually that much in the way of recent meetings. Luckily, we do have a trio of games to look at from the last five years that are relevant to Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers betting tips for today.

Perhaps a little surprising considering their position as – admittedly slight – underdogs, the advantage here does go to Newcastle United, thanks to back-to-back wins. They won their last meeting in 2017 as part of the League Championship, which ended 1-0 in their favour, while back in 2016, they traded 2-0 victories.

Alright, there’s not much in it but an edge is an edge, and in a game expected to be as closely contested as this one, that can make all the difference.

Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Prediction: Away Side Win

There’s a very interesting contrast here, as it really is a question of what is more important: recent games or how each team has performed throughout the season. If it is the latter, then there is little doubt that Wolverhampton Wanderers have been more impressive throughout. Had they not fallen by the wayside for several games, the odds of this one could have been very different indeed.

However, that recent drop off is impossible to ignore, and if we are going by sheer results, Newcastle have done better recently. That’s not to mention their head-to-head advantage. On the other hand, the recent results don’t tell the whole story, as in terms of performance, Wolverhampton did still manage to show a fair bit of fire on occasion.

Ultimately, our decision has been swung by two things. Those factors are how Wolves have performed in general – including what they managed to show in defeat – and that recent win over Chelsea, which has seen them once again gather momentum. It feels like they can’t be held down for long, and we’re not convinced that the Magpies are the ones to manage it. With that in mind, our Newcastle United vs Wolverhampton Wanderers prediction is for an away victory.
