What Trueform says for Leicester vs Newcastle
Leicester and Newcastle have both put together a rock-solid run of Premier League results recently, with each team proving very hard to beat.
The Foxes are unbeaten in four top-flight fixtures, while the Magpies have only lost at Liverpool in their last seven matches.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester were a touch flattered by Saturday’s 2-0 success at Brighton, with late goals from Vicente Iborra and Jamie Vardy coming after Kasper Schmeichel had saved a penalty.
The victory also came at a cost, with Wilfred Ndidi now suspended following his dismissal three minutes from time.
“He is a very important player for us,” commented Claude Puel. “He will get possession in a lot of balls and prevents the opponent from making contact.
“He’s been fantastic since the beginning of the season. To lose him just in this moment is harsh for us because as a team we do not have a lot of players with the same attributes.”
The Foxes are eight points above the Magpies in the table, but their last three Premier League home games all ended 1-1.
Looking at the Leicester vs Newcastle odds, 11/2 for a repeat of that scoreline has obvious appeal.
A Look At Newcastle United’s Betting Odds
Newcastle took another big step towards securing their safety when beating Huddersfield 1-0 at St James’ Park and earned us a 9/2 correct score pay-out in our preview of that match.
United’s third straight home win was hard-fought, as they squandered first-half chances through Dwight Gayle and Matt Ritchie before Ayoze Perez finally struck on 80 minutes.
The Spaniard said: “We knew winning this game would mean we were going to be really close to survival.
“That’s our position at the minute, so it’s a big three points and we are doing really well.
“The team looks compact and is working in the same way every week. That’s important now because we need those points.”
Newcastle have lost just three of their last 13 league games, two to Manchester City and the other to Liverpool.
They have also netted in nine of their last 10 top-flight fixtures, while Leicester have scored in 12 straight games in all competitions.
We’re finishing off our Leicester vs Newcastle betting tips by taking 17/20 for both teams to score.
