Premier League betting tips: Top-flight football returns as Wolves travel to rock bottom Huddersfield and Newcastle host relegation battlers Burnley.
Huddersfield vs Wolves
Huddersfield haven’t had the bounce they were hoping for when they replaced David Wagner with Jan Siewert last month. The Terriers have lost all four of their games under the German and remain rock bottom of the Premier League, a massive 14 points off safety.
Their biggest problem is in attack, having scored just seven goals in their last 15 games and failing to score more than once in that period (D1 L14).
Huddersfield’s only positive going into this game is that their last win was a surprise 2-0 victory against Wolves at Molineux – but that was 16 games and three months ago.
Since that defeat, Wolves have lost just three times and two of those were against title challengers Manchester City and Liverpool. The newly promoted side are enjoying a stunning campaign so far as they sit 8th in the table with 40 points from 27 games.
Wolves were lucky to take a point from Bournemouth last time out after the Cherries missed a penalty at the death, but that draw extended their unbeaten run to eight games across all competitions (W5 D3). In that time, they’ve bagged 19 goals – and it’s not hard to see why with the attacking talent at Nuno’s disposal; Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota up front and Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves creating in behind.
This should be a routing win for the visitors. Wolves to beat Huddersfield and both teams to score NO can be backed at 6/4 with Novibet.
Newcastle vs Burnley
Both Newcastle and Burnley have hit decent form of late, rising to 15th and 14th respectively to ease serious concerns of relegation.
Newcastle have won four of their last seven games across all competitions (W4 D1 L2), a run that includes an unthinkable 2-1 victory over Premier League champions Manchester City towards the end of last month.
Loanee striker Salomon Rondon has been crucial to that form, contributing to five goals during that time. And January signing Miguel Almiron, who has nothing in his head but flying forward when he has the ball at his feet, will no doubt be amongst the goals himself soon.
Meanwhile, Burnley travel to St James’ Park on the back of a 2-1 win at home to title contenders Tottenham on Saturday. That win made it six victories in their last 10 – only losing to Man City in the FA Cup in that time.
The stunning goalscoring form of Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes has played a huge part in that, with the pair finding the back of the net four times apiece in their last four Premier League outings.
This is a tough one to call, but I think the home advantage may just edge it for the hosts. Newcastle to beat Burnley is at odds of 23/20 with Novibet.
