Tip: Newcastle +0.5
Units: 1/5
Odds: +105

There’s a case for getting with Newcastle in this Monday night fixture at Molineux despite the fact that they’re currently fourteen points behind their opponents at this stage of the season.

Rafael Benitez’s side have recently beaten Manchester City at St James’ Park although they continue to peer nervously over their shoulder due to Cardiff City sitting just two points behind after beating Bournemouth.

We know what to expect from the Magpies when they take to the road, with just twenty-four goals scored in their twelve away games in the Premier League and this average of two per match is likely to continue here.

Indeed, the Tyneside club were unlucky not to hold out for a point at Wembley recently, with Newcastle goalless against Tottenham until the 83rd minute and they can clearly put up a strong rearguard against any sort of team.

Wolves are probably the team in the top flight who are punching the most above their proverbial weight, with Nuno’s team having accumulated thirty-eight points from twenty-five games and that is a massive return.

However, Wanderers have failed to win seven of their thirteen matches at home and have been known to wobble in front of their own fans when faced with a team who are prepared to put up a stubborn resistance.

Crystal Palace recently left Molineux with a 2-0 victory and Huddersfield’s only away win on the road came against Wolves, with the Midlands team conceding as many as eighteen times at home this term.

With this in mind, we will get with a Newcastle side who carry a dangerous attacking threat thanks to the form of Ayoze Perez and Salomon Rondon, while Shane Longstaff looks strong at this level and the defence are fairly robust.
