English Premier League Betting at Bet365


Newcastle – Bruce short of solutions?

Whether it be through complacency, loss of key players or simply a lack of confidence owing to bad form, all of a sudden the outlook surrounding the club is not so bright. Since the turn of the year no team has lost more matches than the eight of Newcastle (W7 D4 L14), who have one win in fourteen league outings (W2 D2 L10). As such, they are into 13/8 (Bet365) in the Premier League relegation market.

Pressure is increasing on the manager, Steve Bruce, who is probably counting his blessing that fans cannot attend games at this moment time. The St James’ Park faithful would be voicing their concerns in no uncertain terms. Particularly after one win in six at home, with three consecutive defeats – to Crystal Palace, Leeds and Leicester – preceding a 3-2 victory over Southampton last time out on Tyneside.

The Magpies conceded twice in each of those previous four Premier League home games, last enduring a longer such run 1991. With the club’s top goalscorer, Callum Wilson, still out injured, the last thing Bruce needs is a porous defence. It has contributed to their past nine top-flight matches producing a minimum of two goals, with five seeing three or more, including last week’s 3-1 loss at Man Utd.


Wolves Win & Both Teams to Score



Wolves – Santo’s men in the ascendancy?

Nuno Espirito Santo and his Wolves (W9 D6 L10) team are set for a spell out on the road over the coming seven days, in which time they travel to all of Aston Villa, Man City and Newcastle, prior to welcoming top-four challengers Liverpool and West Ham to Molineux. It is a challenging period but one they are well equipped to tackle head on after turning their ailing fortunes around in admirable fashion in February.

Wolves have won three of their past four league games, as many as they had in their previous sixteen in the competition. This includes the last two, away at Southampton and at home to Leeds, and means they will be targeting three consecutive Premier League victories for the first time this season. Coming from behind against the former – with only Man Utd (22) claiming more points from losing positions (12).

Furthermore, only the current bottom two sides, Sheffield United and West Brom, have conceded the first goal of the game more often this term (16). With their opponents on Saturday netting each of their last five league goals in the first half, Nuno Santo must guard against another complacent start. Conversely, Wolves have found the net in the opening period in just three of twelve away contests thus far.

Newcastle Vs Wolves Betting Advice

This season, just four top-flight teams fare worse in the scoring department than these teams, both of whom average little more than a goal-per-game (1.04). This is a fixture, however, which tends to bring out the best from the attackers – with both sides scoring in all eleven previous Premier League meetings. Each of the past four, meanwhile, ended 1-1, with Newcastle striking late to salvage a point at Molineux in October.


Newcastle Vs Wolves – Key Facts:

  • Eight league defeats in their last ten Premier League games (W2) for Newcastle. Meanwhile, Wolves are unbeaten in four (W3 D1) having won the last two.
  • Each of the Newcastle‘s last five league goals were scored in the first half. Conversely, only two teams have conceded the first goal more often this season than Wolves (16).
  • All 11 Premier League meetings between the clubs produced both teams scoring, with each of the last four ending in 1-1 draws.


It is, therefore, hard to ignore the lure of Both Teams to Score at close to even money. Especially as six of the last seven league games at St James’ Park featured goals for both teams. None of the last four head-to-heads here produced a win for the home side though, with Wolves triumphing twice, meaning it could pay to back an away result coupled with neither side keeping a clean sheet.
