Draw 9/4

Leicester 18/10

Note, odds quoted are an approximate average and are correct at the time of last update but are subject to change

Verdict:

Newcastle badly need a boost but Leicester have been pretty hard to beat for anything other than the top sides and hence this looks a really tricky call.

I’ll go with the goals markets where 2-3 in total will satisfy the betting interest.

Bet: Total goals 2-3 at even money
