Match Summary

One to Watch: James Maddison

One of the brightest players we’ve seen in the Premier League this season, James Maddison will play a key role in how this game goes on Saturday – and it’s probably wise to back him in the football score predictions market. A 0-2 Leicester win with Maddison involved is 14/1, and it could be a smart betting tip for the weekend, given both Newcastle’s recent poor form and the young Englishman’s good goal against Huddersfield Town last weekend.

Newcastle United vs Leicester City Betting Tips, Preview & Predictions

Will home advantage shine through for Newcastle?

It’s shaping up to be a terrible time for Newcastle United, given they haven’t won a game yet and have only managed two points all season – one of which came against fellow bottom-dwellers Cardiff City. They face a Leicester City side in search of successive wins following an impressive victory over Huddersfield Town last time out.

A home win is 7/5, the draw is 11/5 and an away win is 2/1 with bet365, which probably suggests that most Premier League previews and Premier League predictions will go for a correct score prediction. 

A 2-1 Newcastle victory is priced at 10/1 and that could be an outside bet for a good home result, but its unlikely nature means it’s not worth the hassle. On the other hand, a 3-1 away triumph for the Foxes is definitely worth a flutter at 28/1.

Predicted Score: Newcastle United 1 - 3 Leicester City
