Newcastle vs Wolves: Top free betting tips
Newcastle will face Wolves this weekend in the Premier League with the two teams separated by just one point in the league table. Newcastle have experienced a dip in form this season with injuries a huge contributing factor while Wolves have far outperformed expectations under Gary O'Neil. Who will come out on top at St James' Park in a huge match in the race for European football? Check out our Newcastle vs Wolves prediction below.
Match result prediction: Newcastle to win
Although Newcastle have been ravaged by injuries all season, its two key injuries in the Wolves camp that have us leaning towards the home side, here. Matheus Cunha and Hwang Hee-Chan, Wolves' joint top-scorers with 11 goals apiece, are both missing for Gary O'Neil's men on Saturday. It means that Wolves are severely lacking any kind of goal threat which Newcastle should take full advantage of in front of their home supporters.
Total Newcastle goals prediction: Over 1.5 goals
Newcastle have struggled for momentum all season but their issues have never been in front of goal but rather at the other end of the pitch. The Magpies have scored 13 goals in their last five Premier League matches and with several attacking players, including Alexander Isak, fully fit again they should be able to find the back of the net at least twice on Saturday. Wolves have conceded nine goals in their last five matches so they can definitely be got at.
Correct score prediction: Newcastle 2-0 Wolves
Whoever comes out on top at St James' Park on Saturday can put themselves in contention for a top-six finish, particularly with Man Utd playing away at Man City on Sunday. We can see Newcastle having a strong end to the season with squad availability looking the best it has done all season and that starts on Saturday against Wolves.
Newcastle vs Wolves team news
Newcastle predicted lineup vs Wolves
After being ravaged by injuries all season, Newcastle have “only” four players in the treatment room ahead of the match with Wolves. Callum Wilson, Nick Pope, Joelinton and Matt Targett are all ruled out while Sandro Tonali is still serving his suspension. Joe Willock returned in midweek in the FA Cup but will likely to start on the bench on Saturday, however, Alexander Isak is expected to start the match up front for the Magpies.
Dubravka – Trippier, Botman, Schar, Burn – Guimaraes, Longstaff, Miley – Barnes, Isak, Gordon
Wolves predicted lineup vs Newcastle
Wolves were in FA Cup action in midweek which means they have had less time to prepare for this fixture. O'Neil went with a strong 11 against Brighton and got his rewards as his side now have a home tie with Coventry for a place in the FA Cup semi-finals. Unfortunatley, Hwang Hee-Chan tweaked his hamstring in the match and won't be available this weekend, joining Cunha on the sidelines. The rest of the Wolves team picks itself with Pedro Neto now more important than ever.
Sa – Semedo, Kilman, Dawson, Tot, Aitn-Nouri – Lemina, Gomes – Neto, Bellegarde, Sarabia
Newcastle vs Wolves: What the fans think
Newcastle fans hope a win could be the start of a strong end to the season
Nailed it 👍🏼
Another cup QF and still in with a shout at Europe through the league. Only beaten by the top 3 in 2024 so far.

Wolves fans want to focus on the FA Cup instead
Without Cunha and having not replaced Silva and Sasa due to FFP reasons, sadly we didn't have much choice but to use him and hope for the best. I'd be tempted to play an entire reserve side at Newcastle and focus on the Fulham & Coventry games. Don't want more injuries. #wwfc
