Wolves managed to find a way through against a tricky Leeds side on Monday night, even if it did come via a large deflection, and propel them up to sixth in the table. it’s the second 1-0 victory on the bounce for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side as they now have the second lowest goals per game figure in the league, continuing their trend from the previous two seasons.
Newcastle have had a rollercoaster start to the season, beating both West Ham and Burnley by two goal margins, drawing to Spurs though have been comfortably beaten by Man United and Brighton, so it’s difficult to say which Magpies side are going to show up for this encounter.
What we wouldn’t expect is for the hosts to run riot here. Newcastle have seen two goals in both of their away games so far against Spurs and West Ham, and considering Wolves have scored just two goals at home so far this season in three games across all competitions, we’re not convinced by their ability to put teams to the sword.
The losses of Diogo Jota and Matt Doherty have clearly taken their toll on a Wolves side that were generally limited in terms of output as it was, averaging 1.29 gpg in their two seasons since returning to the premier league, with only Brighton, Southampton, Burnley, Crystal Palace and Newcastle themselves managing less per game from sides that have avoided relegation in both seasons.
Wolves To Win 1-0, 2-0, 2-1
This all points to an ‘Under 2.5 goals’ bet, though at such a short price there’s value to be found elsewhere in the market.
While the midlands side have been unconvincing, they’ve still managed to grind out results and clean sheets in three of their five matches so far, and the win to nil is very much on the cards again here.
However, the multibet provides much better value a the same price considering Newcastle have managed to find the net in seven of their eight outings so far this season in all competitions, and with the attacking potency of Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin we wouldn’t surprised if they netted here, though Wolves should have enough about them to grind out another result.
