Newcastle United entertain Leeds United on Wednesday night at St. James' Park in the third round of the Capital One Cup (7.45pm kick-off).

The Magpies are looking to get back to winning ways following their weekend disappointment against Hull, and betting partner brings United fans the best odds ahead of the fixture:



Match Odds

Unbelievably, this will be the first competitive meeting between Newcastle and Leeds for almost ten years. We have to go back to January 2004 to find the last fixture, where an Alan Shearer goal was the only difference on that day.

Leeds have had a decent start to the season but after their 2-1 defeat to Burnley at the weekend, they have now lost three of their last four matches and have only scored two goals in that run.

Unfortunately, Newcastle followed their impressive 2-1 away win at Aston Villa with a 3-2 home loss to Hull City on Saturday. Frenchman Loic Remy opened up his Newcastle account with a brace, which will please manager Alan Pardew and the United faithful.

Newcastle: 4/6

The Draw: 11/4

Leeds: 7/2


Value Bets

Sammy Ameobi was an unused substitute at home to Hull on the weekend and there is value in backing the younger Ameobi to be the last goalscorer against Leeds.

Newcastle/Newcastle in the Half Time/Full Time market is also good value if you believe the Magpies will fly out of the traps.

Sammy Ameobi Last Goalscorer: 9/1

Newcastle/Newcastle: 6/4



Hatem Ben Arfa to score first and Newcastle to win 2-1: 30/1

Shola Ameobi to score first and Newcastle to win 3-1: 45/1


First Goalscorer

Papiss Cisse: 5/1

Yoan Gouffran: 13/2

Haris Vuckic: 9/1

Sammy Ameobi: 9/1

Sylvain Marveaux: 12/1
