Monday night football in the Premier League sees Wolverhampton Wanderers host Newcastle, hoping to extend their recent run of wins and cement 7th place in the division.
Wolves vs Newcastle: Back the hosts to win but it won't he a hammering
Newcastle has lost their last two matches on the road and that doesn't bode well, against Wolves who are in the hunt for a European place and with two successive home wins to their name. Wolves have scored at least three times in their last two home games and they look set to continue their winning run at Molineux but we don't expect a hammering; Newcastle tends to lose games by a single-goal margin away from home. That trend has been true for their last three defeats on the road in the Premier League.
Wolves attacking midfield star Diego Jota is the major injury concern for the hosts, and with a small squad to choose from, that will be a worry for Nuno Espirito Santo. Apart from the long-term injured pair of Jonjo Shelvey and goalkeeper Rob Elliot, the entire Newcastle first-team squad is fit and available to Rafa Benitez.
Futaa's best bet
With Wolves having won three matches in a row and Newcastle only having won two out of 12 away matches in the Premier League, we see value in backing Wolves to win priced at 1.80 on betPawa.
