Sean Miller's Saturday soccer picks: Newcastle vs Wolverhampton, Hellas Verona vs Juventus
Newcastle (+245) vs. Wolves (+128), draw (+210), 3 p.m. EST (Peacock); Hellas Verona (+480) vs. Juventus (-177), draw (+310), 2:45 p.m. EST (ESPN+)
Wolverhampton looks to have turned season around, something Newcastle United could do with right now
While Newcastle United comes into its late match Saturday, there are not too many people who believe that will last.
In fact, if Fulham beat Crystal Palace on Sunday, and Newcastle loses to Wolverhampton today, the Magpies would fall into 18th, looking more and more likely to be in the Championship next season.
Wolves looked to have figured it out after a rough patch, following the loss of Raul Jimenez, and are scoring just enough goals to get the job done of late. While Wolves start the day in 12th, they could end it just four points behind sixth place Liverpool.
In Italy, Juventus can cut the lead o just four points with 14 games to play, and start to pile more pressure on the Milan sides. And we all know how they deal with pressure (NOT WELL).
