Newcastle vs Leicester City prediction, odds, betting tips and best bets for Premier League match Monday
Leicester City are on a quest to save their Premier League status, but that will be a tall order as they visit St. James' Park to take on Newcastle United on Monday.
The Foxes sit 19th in the Premier League table, able to leap out of the relegation zone should they emerge with all three points. They would jump 18th-place Leeds United, who lost to West Ham on Sunday, with just a point, and they could even eclipse 17th-place Everton on goal difference should they win.
Yet Newcastle have made their home ground a fortress and the Magpies will be motivated by the prospect of securing a Champions League qualification spot with a win.
There are stakes for both sides for this prime time weekday match and it should make for an intriguing clash.

Newcastle vs Leicester City: best bet
- Pick: Newcastle -1.5 goal handicap
- Odds: -110 (BetMGM)
Newcastle have won four of their last five Premier League home games by multiple goals, only falling to Arsenal who played a near-perfect game, and they also have away wins at Everton and West Ham by multiple goals in that span as well.
This Magpies still very much have something to fight for as they look to secure a seat at Europe's top table and they are likely to be too good for this Leicester City side.
Newcastle vs Leicester City prop bet
- Pick: Race to 7 corners — Newcastle
- Odds: -135 (FanDuel)
Newcastle have collected the most corners in the Premier League this season by a significant margin, making good use of one of Kieran Trippier's best attributes.
Leicester, meanwhile, have conceded the fourth-most corners in the league, coughing up around six per match. Last time these two teams played, Newcastle racked up 12 corners to Leicester's three, and they only ended 5-5 on corners in the reverse Premier League fixture because the Magpies were 3-0 up after a half-hour and didn't need to push further.
