At this stage of the season half of the teams in the Premier League want something to play for and half want to be thinking about their summer break.
The Leicester players are delighted to be fighting to confirm their place in the Champions League and to win the FA Cup final whereas the Newcastle players are disappointed that they cannot yet put their feet up as they still have to secure their top flight survival.
The Magpies should be fine but we don’t think they’ll improve their position at the King Power Stadium on Friday and are backing Leicester to win to nil at 7/5 with bet365*.

Leicester vs Newcastle Betting Odds:
In the end, it will be Fulham and West Brom’s inability to claw themselves out of trouble that saves Newcastle rather than anything much that Stever Bruce’s team have done.
The lacklustre performance against Arsenal last weekend was a big step backwards after four positive results and did nothing to convince Newcastle fans that Bruce can lead the club to better days in the future.
Leicester fans need no convincing that they have the right man at the helm.
Brendan Rodgers continues to do a wonderful job with Leicester even if their difficult upcoming fixtures is a cause for concern when it comes to their chances of making a return to the Champions League.
Leicester struggled to break down 10-man Southampton last week and, apart from Kelechi Iheanacho, are finding it difficult to score goals so under 2.5 goals looks well priced at 11/10 with BetVictor.

Iheanacho has largely been a frustrating figure since swapping Man City for Leicester but in the last couple of months he’s finally started to fulfil his potential.
The Nigerian striker has shown a combination of technical skill, power and smart positioning to bang the goals in of late but he will be carefully watched by the Newcastle defence.
If Leicester need another player to step up and score an important goal it could be Youri Tielemans who makes the difference.
The gifted Belgian is most commonly known as a creative force but he is also capable of scoring from inside and outside of the box so back Tielemans to score first at 9/1 with 888sport.
