Newcastle are given a price of 2.50 to win the match. It is an extremely short price for a team that has struggled big time so far this season. Leicester have been able to go through a strong surge of form and have only struggled in the odd matches. The Foxes also have an excellent record against Newcastle after managing to win five out of the last six. The run of consecutive wins over Newcastle was finally broken by the victory for the Magpies back in April. Our preview would pick a win for Leicester City.

Newcastle United vs Leicester City draw odds: 3.20
Newcastle United win odds: 2.50
Correct Score odds
Leicester have been able to profit from the return of Jamie Vardy, whose goals will be extremely crucial over the next few months. World Cup duties and suspension prevented the England international from having a major impact. Now, Leicester can attack with zest. Newcastle have been struggling on this front since the start of the season. Rafa Benitez has watched his team manage only four league goals. Our correct score prediction would pick a 2-1 win for Leicester City.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The recent meetings between Leicester and Newcastle have been quite entertaining in terms of goals. This match may be quite different with Newcastle struggling for goals, but we expect home advantage to ultimately have its say. Leicester also do not possess a strong defence and have conceded close to 2 goals per game on average. Our total goals prediction would pick over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
James Maddison may be the top scorer at Leicester City but Jamie Vardy is the pick of the bunch in order to score the first goal for this match. The 31-year-old may not possess a great record against Newcastle but Leicester will be trying to find him as much as possible.
