Top predictions for Newcastle vs. Leicester City

Green is leaning over 2.5 goals in Friday’s matchup between Newcastle and Leicester City. The Magpies are hoping for a strong offensive performance after recording a total of one goal over their previous two matches. Prior to that, Newcastle netted two or more tallies in three consecutive contests. Forward Callum Wilson, who leads the team with 10 goals, is due to break through as he enters Friday with a six-game drought.

Leicester City combined with its opponents to go over this total in eight of 10 Premier League contests prior to last Friday’s 1-1 draw with Southampton. Kelechi Iheanacho did not score in that match but produced five goals over his previous four games across all competitions. The 24-year-old Nigerian forward has netted 10 of his team-leading 17 tallies during Premier League play, which is one of the reasons Green is leaning toward the over on Friday.
