Leicester City FC – Newcastle United FC betting tip & odds comparison 26.12.2022

The excitement of English football returns with the traditional Boxing Day line up as Leicester City take on in-form Newcastle United at the King Power Stadium. Having endured a terrible start to the season, Leicester seem to have turned the corner a bit, easing the pressure on gaffer Brendan Rodgers. Here, they will hope to continue that run and stay away from the drop zone as much as possible.

For the Magpies, it has been an amazing year so far as they are looking to cement their status and break into the top six circle on the log. A win here will be crucial in fending off any kind of pressure from Spurs and others eyeing the top 4.

Certainly, festive football is one of the most anticipated events in England top flight. To help you spice up you Yuletide, we will be curating our prediction with odds from Betwinner and Betking.

LEICESTER CITY

The foxes began the season on a horrible note, losing their first 6 games in a row. That poor run heaped pressure on Brendan Rodgers with questions about whether or not he had the tactical ability to manage the side.

However, Leicester were able to turn the corner, returning to winning ways in a 4-0 thumping of Nottingham Forest at the start of October. In fact, since earning that win, Leicester have only lost twice in all competitions, winning 7 games and drawing 2.

In this tie, they will be hoping to halt Newcastle’s run as they aim to climb far above the drop zone into the top half of the table.

NEWCASTLE UNITED

The emergence of the Saudi owners has in no doubt redefined Newcastle’s place in English football. With access to funds and proper management of these funds for the acquisition of the right players, Eddie Howe’s side are flying high on 3rd position on 30 points, 7 behind leaders Arsenal.

In fact, the Magpies are enjoying a great run of form which has seen them qualify for the EFL cup last 8 to remain unbeaten in all competitions since losing 2-1 to Liverpool back in August.

To further keep fellow top 4 contenders at bay, Newcastle will be counting on their current run as they gun for all 3 points here.

OUR PREVIEW AND PREDICTIONS FOR LEICESTER Vs NEWCASTLE

Newcastle have won 2 of their last 3 meetings against the foxes; 4-2 in May 2021 and 2-1 in April 2022. Based on this, and their firing power up front, with odd of 2.10 from Betking, we are backing Newcastle to score at least 2 goals here.

Tip 1: Away Over 1.5 Goals

Leicester City’s initial early season wobble seem to be over now given how they navigated their last fixtures before the World Cup break, scoring 7 goals in 3 matches. Here, they will be hoping to avoid back to back home defeats to Newcastle. To make this happen, with odd of 1.90 from Betwinner, we expect a huge attacking from Leicester thereby producing at least 5 corners for them.
