class=”article_teaser__2t5do”>The Magpies have not won any of their last eight Premier League games and our tipster isn't expecting that run to improve when Bielsa's men visit
Newcastle United are looking for their first win in nine Premier League games when they welcome Leeds United to St James’ Park on Tuesday evening.
Since their last victory on December 12, no team has taken fewer points than the two that the Magpies have picked up and their tally of four goals is also the lowest in that time.
Newcastle United vs Leeds United Latest Odds
Given their poor form, it is no surprise to see bet365 make Newcastle 11/4 (3.75) outsiders to pick up three points here.
Leeds won the reverse fixture 5-2 at Elland Road thanks to a flurry of late goals and are 10/11 (1.91) favourites to complete the double over Steve Bruce’s men.

The Whites have not drawn any of their last nine league games and a stalemate is priced at 11/4 (3.75) in this one.
Newcastle United vs Leeds United Team News
Ciaran Clark could return after missing Newcastle’s defeat at Aston Villa on Saturday, whilst Paul Dummett, Federico Fernandez and DeAndre Yedlin will all miss out.
Marcelo Bielsa will be without Robin Koch, Adam Forshaw and Gaetano Berardi, but Illan Meslier may be available after illness ruled him out of Leeds’ loss to Brighton.
Newcastle United vs Leeds United Preview
Newcastle’s attack has really let them down since their 5-2 loss in the reverse fixture, with just two goals scored in the seven Premier League games following that, but their defence has hardly fared better.
Indeed, the Magpies have conceded 11 times and managed only one clean sheet during that time so may find it difficult to contain one of the highest-scoring sides in the division.
Leeds’ tally of 30 goals is by far the highest of any team in the bottom half and their average of 1.67 per game is the eighth-best in the Premier League.
Newcastle United vs Leeds United Tips and Predictions
Although Leeds have lost their last two Premier League matches, they should have more than enough to see off a Newcastle side struggling at both ends of the pitch during their current eight-game winless streak.
With that in mind, bet365’s price of 10/11 (1.91) on an away win looks a strong angle for this clash on Tuesday evening.
