Leicester City are getting closer and closer to the title and the fairytale will take on another game this weekend as they face Newcastle in a game that they are expected to win. This week the Foxes will be at home in front on their home fans and I think that they will do an amazing job in lighting up the stadium with their skill, speed and talent.
Leicester are playing some of the best football in the world at the moment and this weekend I think that they will do the same thing. These players have managed to build quite a formidable lead at the top of the table and I think that they will continue with their good run in form this weekend. Arsenal are not playing in the Premier League this weekend and although it is likely Spurs will win their game against Villa, a win for Leicester will still have a huge impact since they will start to get to a stage where it will not be possible to catch them.
Newcastle on the other hand have no chance in my opinion. This team is poor and although there are changes happening at the club, I don’t see a situation where they avoid relegation. The Magpies are going to be outclassed and on the road for this game so I think we are going to see a big win for Leicester City.
Overall as far as betting is concerned, I think that Leicester are getting a price that is way too short. A big bet on this line is an option but I think that betting on the goal line is a better idea. I think this will be a high scoring game and over 2.5 goals in very likely so that is my pick for this match.
