Leicester 9/5 to beat Newcastle in Saturday’s Premier League encounter

Competition: Premier League

Market: Leicester to beat Newcastle

Odds: 9/5 @ Bet365

The world’s most competitive league returns for another gripping instalment this weekend as the Premier League continues to simmer away nicely. The last round of games saw no end of excitement as goals and controversy were not in shortage. Following this, there are a number of interesting clashes to come, with one such game seeing Newcastle host Leicester on Saturday.

Newcastle have been struggling massively in recent weeks as their good start to the season has been hampered by a poor run of recent form. In their last five they have picked up just one point, losing four times and drawing once. This has seen the Magpies slip down to 15th in the league with 15 points, just five clear of Crystal Palace in 18th. Rafael Benitez needs to find a way to arrest their recent slump, with a big performance culminating in three points vital in rejuvenating the confidence that they have lost.

Leicester have been a superb patch in their season lately. In their last five games they have lost just once, drawing twice and winning twice, which has seen the former-champions rise to ninth in the league with 20 points. While the fans will be dreaming of a European place, it is more important for the side to continue to put space between themselves and the relegation zone, with 18th-placed Crystal Palace 10 points behind the Foxes. Despite Newcastle having home advantage, Leicester have been in good form lately, and we are backing them with odds of 9/5 from Bet365.
