Leicester vs Newcastle: Best bets for Sunday’s Premier League and Championship games

Bet that Steve Bruce isn’t backward about not coming forward at Leicester today.

Newcastle ’s boss needs to blunt the Foxes’ counter-attacking edge as his first priority.

Happily, goal-lite slogs are where his boys shine.

And as they showed at Tottenham , with a nine-man defence you only need to score once to make ‘Bruceball’ a devastating strategy.

The UNDER 2.5 goals at 8/11 is fairest of the teeny prices (4.30pm).

But the more needy of us could do worse than hope an answer lies in Andy Carroll’s head.

Biffa’s noggin is a powerful weapon, but has suffered a bit down the years from being attached to the rest of him.

An unhappy marriage of cannon and carriage, like strapping a bazooka to a labradoodle.

Still, Carroll’s aerial strengths are an interesting test of Leicester’s relative weaknesses in that area.

If he starts, punt Andy Carroll ‘first goalscorer’ at 12/1 (Bet365).

In the Championship, Ollie Watkins has the Premier League spark to light up a grim TV game at Barnsley (1.30pm) .

Brentford’s Ollie – ‘the Torquay Ronaldo’ – was one of Crystal Palace ’s big ideas this summer.

He can roll the dice from range. It might need that. Brentford have one goal in four aways.

Punt NO ‘both teams score’ at 6/5, and Watkins ‘to score from outside the box’ at 10/1 (Hills).

I imagine Rochdale’s 16-year-old hero Luke Matheson has been celebrating his goal at Old Trafford in midweek like any other teenager. Standing there gawping with the fridge door wide open.

Expect electricity from Manchester United and Arsenal tomorrow (8pm). The Gunners score for fun, a feeling that seems somehow to still elude Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

With a high total-goals forecast, punt Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 7/5 (Lads) ‘anytime scorer’.
