Leicester v Liverpool Predictions & Betting Odds – 1st September 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Liverpool Betting Tips - Premier League, 1st September 12.30pm League leaders Liverpool head off to the King Power on the weekend to try and keep their winning start going. It is three from three for them so far in the top flight this season and they have yet to concede a goal. They will be taking on a confident Leicester side though as the Foxes have recovered well from their opening defeat at Manchester United by winning their next two. Can the Foxes trouble the Reds? Read our predictions for Leicester v Liverpool.

Leicester News and Form

It has been a fairly decent start from Leicester. They suffered a 2-1 loss at Manchester United to open with, but they have responded well with back to back wins against Southampton and Wolves. Leicester have hit the back of the net in each game in the top flight this season. Because of that, we have to look over 3.5 goals for this clash at 13/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 28th, 2018 at 4:03 a.m.). We are fully supporting the idea that Leicester will play their part in a high scoring game on the weekend. Against Southampton last weekend on the road, they were without the suspended Jamie Vardy. He is still banned so Kelechi Iheanacho as their shortest priced anytime goalscorer option. The Foxes are a pretty reliable side when it comes to getting the goals on the board, but they are not the most convincing of sides at the back and that is their Achilles heel. Can Leicester's defence survive 90 minutes of pressure from Liverpool? Both teams to score is great value at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 28th, 2018 at 4:03 a.m.).

Liverpool News and Form

Liverpool have recorded three wins from three to start the season in style. They have yet to concede a goal as well. But we believe that this is where that will happen for the first time this season so for our Leicester v Liverpool predictions, in the bet365 correct score market, a Liverpool 3-1 scoreline is at 12/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 28th, 2018 at 4:03 a.m.). That makes for a reasonable option. Liverpool were denied a lot of space by Brighton last weekend, but will probably have a lot more to work in at the King Power. Mo Salah is already up and running in his goalscoring exploits. Salah is the 5/2 first goalscorer favourite for the fixture* (Betting Odds were taken on August 28th, 2018 at 4:03 a.m.) as he looks to add to his two-goal tally. Liverpool produced a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace in their only away game so far this season and they were made to work hard for their points there. Still, at the end of the day, they showed they can grind. Liverpool produced a W9 D5 L5 record away from Anfield last season, form which really let their title challenge down. However, just one of those away defeats came against sides finished lower than fifth.

Leicester v Liverpool Head to Head

The Reds collected a win in both league games against the Foxes last season in the top flight, but they were both one-goal margin victories. In the last six Premier League meetings Liverpool holds a W4 L2 record against the Foxes and Leicester have won two of their last three on home soil against the Reds (L1). Both teams have scored in each of the last four Premier League meetings.

Leicester v Liverpool Betting Odds*

Liverpool 4/9 Draw 7/2 Leicester 11/2 * (Betting Odds were taken on August 28th, 2018 at 4:03 a.m.)

Leicester v Liverpool Predictions

Liverpool to win: We can’t ignore what Liverpool have done already and that is win in style and win by grinding out the points in whatever way they can. That’s admirable so we are looking at the away win for our Leicester v Liverpool predictions But we are going all out on a Liverpool to win & both teams to score option. This is really the first time this season that they could face an attack which could hurt them.

Southampton v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 25th August 2018

Southampton
Southampton v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League, 25th August 3.00pm After their opening defeat against Manchester United, Leicester gave themselves a lift with a solid home victory over Wolves in a Midlands derby last weekend. But it came at a cost a Jamie Vardy picked up a red card. Southampton have only managed the one point so far and they look as if they are going to be suffering from a lack of goals again. Can they come up with three points on home soil? Read our predictions for Southampton v Leicester.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton do look as if they are going to struggle this season as out of the gate there doesn’t look to be much improvement from them from last term. They opened with a 0-0 draw at home against Burnley and then lost 2-1 out at Everton last weekend. They were already down 2-0 at halftime. Danny Ings got their consolation goal in the game and he is at 11/5 odds for this one* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.). Only teammate Charlie Austin in a shorter price in the market. The Saints still won't be quite at full strength because of injury/illness issues over Mohamed Elyounoussi and Jannik Vestergaard who didn’t play last weekend. Southampton do have some poor home form going with a just one win in their last twelve league home games. The Saints have, somewhat surprisingly, produced more shots on average per game than Leicester have done this season. There has just been a lack of quality in taking chances. Also, their pass success rate has been under 70% on average this season as well. The Saints scored at Goodison Park from a set piece and they have not been shy in firing off long balls as well as long shots. Last season they had a difficult time at home in the top flight as the Saints went just W4 D7 L8 at St Mary's, scoring just the 20 goals in their 19 games. For our Southampton v Leicester predictions, we are going to stick under 2.5 goals at 8/13 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.).

Leicester News and Form

There is no Jamie Vardy for Leicester who starts his three-match suspension after his red card last week in Leicester's win over Wolves. That is a big blow for them as he is their main striker and he had scored already this season in their 2-1 loss at Man Utd on the opening weekend of the season. Last weekend at home against Wolves, Leicester benefitted from an own goal and a finish from summer signing James Maddison. With Vardy sidelined now, we will likely see Kelechi Iheanacho leading the line for the Foxes and he is an 11/5 odds anytime goalscorer option* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.). As well as Vardy missing, the Foxes are missing Caglar Söyüncü and Shinji Okazaki because of lack of match fitness, while Matty James is dealing with an injury. Leicester are actually on a four-match losing streak on the road in the Premier League. Leicester have conceded at least two goals now in each of their last four games away from the King Power. There have been over 2.5 goals in seven of their last eight road games, but still, even with that trend, it’s hard to see that happening in this one. Leicester's away form was disappointing last season as they got a W5 D5 L9 record on the board, putting boss Claude Puel under some pressure. The three points against Wolves last weekend were a big pressure-release for him. We are going to look at the value of the halftime draw at even money* (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.) for our Southampton v Leicester predictions. The Foxes were level at halftime in eleven of their away games last season and we expect this to be tight.

Southampton v Leicester Head to Head

Southampton managed just the one point from their two league games against Leicester last season and they suffered a 4-1 home defeat in that. In the last six Premier League meetings the Foxes just shade things with a W2 D2 L1 record over the Saints and they are W1 D1 L1 in their last three trips to the South Coast against them. Both teams have scored in just one of the last five league meetings.

Southampton v Leicester Betting Odds*

Southampton 13/10 Leicester 11/5 Draw 11/5 * (Betting Odds were taken on August 21st, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.)

Southampton v Leicester Predictions

Leicester to win: We don’t really see how Southampton are going to be winning too many games this season and because it is Leicester who look to have the more dynamic attack of the two sides, we have to back an away win. It’s a straight shot on a Leicester win for our Southampton v Leicester prediction.

Leicester v Wolves Predictions & Betting Odds – 18th August 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Wolves Betting Tips - Premier League, 18th August 3.00pm It seems the pressure is already mounting on Leicester boss Claude Puel who didn’t have a great end-of-season last term. This new Premier League campaign opened with a defeat as well for Leicester. So the Foxes will be looking to land a positive in this Midlands derby. Wolves showed a bit of character last weekend, twice coming from behind at Molineux to earn a 2-2 draw against Everton. Read our predictions for this Leicester v Wolves fixture.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester were pretty soundly beaten in a 2-1 loss at Old Trafford on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season. Their goal was a late consolation from Jamie Vardy who came off the bench. He is likely to get a starting place and he is the 15/4 first goalscorer favourite for the game* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.) which will immediately make them a strong option for this game. So the Foxes still looked a little unconvincing under Claude Puel, but this is an opportunity for them on home soil to put something together. Jonny Evans, Vicente Iborra, Rachid Ghezzal could all come into the starting line up. The Foxes produced a W7 D6 L6 record at the King Power last season. The reason why there is pressure on Puel is that Leicester won just one of their last seven home games in the top flight. Leicester took just four points from their final seven games (home and away) last season as well. So put it all together that’s just one win in their last eight Premier League fixtures. There have been over 2.5 goals in each of Leicester's last three Premier League games. Over 2.5 goals at bet365 has to be a solid betting tip for Leicester v Wolves at 21/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.).

Wolves News and Form

Wolves will be fairly happy with their start back in the top flight. They had to twice fight back from a goal down against Everton to earn a 2-2 draw last weekend. They probably never quite expected to find themselves under as much pressure at the back as they were. So there has to be some tightening up in defence for Nuno Espirito Santo’s men. It was Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez who got their goals. Leo Bonatini impressed off the bench last weekend and could well force his way into a starting position. Naturally, there is going to be a bit of time needed for Wolves to settle down into top-flight life, but they will be happy with the return of goals that they did produce against Everton. They do look as if they have enough about them to threaten the Leicester defence but away games like this don't come easily for newly promoted side and a Leicester to win and both teams to score betting tip returns 10/3 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.).

Leicester v Wolves Head to Head

This will be the first meeting between Leicester and Wolves since the 2012/13 Championship season where there was a 2-1 home win for each. Their only previous Premier League meetings was during the 2003/04 season when Wolves collected four points from their two games. In the last six league meetings, this are even with two wins each and two draws. The last three meetings at Leicester have produced one win for each and a draw.

Leicester v Wolves Betting Odds*

Leicester 21/20 Draw 11/5 Wolves 14/5 * (Betting Odds were taken on August 16th, 2018 at 4:13 p.m.)

Leicester v Wolves Predictions

Leicester to win: We are going to back Leicester to win this battle of the Midlands. They are under pressure to produce in this one and they should send out a stronger starting eleven than they did last weekend. Leicester to win in the match outright is value, but there’s a temptation to go for a Leicester to win & Both Teams To Score option.

Manchester United v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 10th August 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League, 10th August 8.00pm Manchester United and boss Jose Mourinho will be under some pressure on Friday night to deliver maximum points. This is the opening game of the 2018/19 Premier League season and United are expected to start strongly. But they don’t appear to have had a very settled summer. Leicester doesn’t have much form going against the Red Devils in the Premier League and are heavy underdogs for this game.

Manchester United News and Form

United boss Jose Mourinho does not appear to have had a happy summer with injuries stacking up, players coming back late after the World Cup and little action in the transfer market. It will be interesting to see how they perform here and they have doubts over Paul Pogba, Eric Bailly, Ander Herrera, Ashley Young, Jesse Lingard and Marouane Fellaini while Antonio Valencia and Nemanja Matic are bigger injury concerns. United went W15 D2 L2 at home last season shipping just the nine goals, so under 2.5 goals with bet365 at 17/20 odds* (Betting Odds were taken on August 7th, 2018 at 5:12 p.m.) is a decent option for Manchester United v Leicester predictions. Five of United's last six league games have been under the goal line and United banked a clean sheet in 63% of their home games last season. Romelu Lukaku is the 6/5 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken on August 7th, 2018 at 5:12 p.m.) and United will need him at his marauding best because it is hard to see where the goals are going to come from otherwise. Last season United opened on home soil as well, beating West Ham 4-0 in a positive start. They have won their last three opening games of a new season in a row. The last time they lost an opener was against Swansea at Old Trafford in 2014. United have such a strong record at home that they will appeal as the Red Devils are undefeated in 34 of their last 36 Premier League home games.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester could have a tough time in this one. At the back end of last season, they lost their last three away games in a row, shipping at least two goals in each of those. Boss Claude Puel seemed to lose his way just a touch at the end of the term. He won’t have a full strength side out at Old Trafford either which won’t help his cause here. Puel has said that Harry Maguire and Jamie Vardy won’t be starting the game and one of their big summer signings James Maddison is a big injury doubt for them as well. The Foxes have brought in Rachid Ghezzal as a replacement for Riyad Mahrez who went off to Manchester City, but he’s likely to be on the bench after joining the club late in the summer. So Leicester were already underdogs for this game and now have to deal with an understrength starting eleven. Because of that, Manchester United to win to nil at 5/4 odds with bet365 does appeal* (Betting Odds were taken on August 7th, 2018 at 5:12 p.m.) in Manchester United v Leicester predictions. The Foxes weren’t a great away side last term, posting a W5 D5 L9 record on the road in the top flight. Last season they opened their account away from home and suffered a 3-4 loss at Arsenal in what was a cracking game. The Foxes are W1 D1 L2 in their last four opening fixtures of a Premier League season. This could be a tough night for them.

Manchester United v Leicester Head to Head

The Red Devils have some strong form going against Leicester in the Premier League including their 2-0 win over them in last season’s corresponding fixture. United are undefeated in their last seven Premier League games against the Foxes now (W4 D3) and they have won five of their last six top-flight home games against Leicester as well. Both teams have scored in seven of the last nine meetings but only once in the last three.

Manchester United v Leicester Betting Odds*

Man Utd 9/20 Draw 16/5 Leicester 13/2 * (Betting Odds were taken on August 7th, 2018 at 5:12 p.m.)

Manchester United v Leicester Predictions

Manchester United to win: Jose Mourinho has personnel problems for one reason or another and they themselves are not likely to be at full strength. But still, we are backing the home side to get a win on the board as tactically they should do enough to stifle Leicester. Manchester United to win & under 2.5 goals looks like a reasonable prediction.

Leicester Premier League 2018/19 Preview Betting Odds & Predictions

Premier League Betting
The Foxes got themselves a top half of the table finish last season, coming home ninth. It was a season in which they really struggled for a great deal of consistency but they had a good stretch from the end of September through to mid-December which perked them up. They faded and fell apart badly towards the end of the season though, but they will have some cash in their pocket this summer to rebuild a bit after selling off their prize asset of Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City. What can they do with that cash? They are keeping the faith with Claude Puel who was brought in last October to replace Craig Shakespeare, just four months after Puel himself was given the boot by Southampton. Puel ended the season with a P35 W13 D10 L12 record with the Foxes across all competitions. Leicester have dipped their toes in the transfer market with James Maddison taking a big chunk of money to get from Norwich and the same can be said of Ricardo Pereira from Porto. They bolstered their defence with Jonny Evans from West Brom as well, as they try as hard as they can in order to hold on to Harry Maguire who the likes of Manchester United are in interested in. If they keep the backbone of their core like Jamie Vardy, Kasper Schmeichel and Maguire then they should be in a solid enough position at least push again for a top half of the table finish. Leicester are at 4/5 odds with bet365 to finish in the top half of the table* (betting odds taken on July 28th, 2018 at 11:28 pm). It has to be a realistic target for them. Just between Maddison and Pereira two-thirds of the money that they got from the sale of Mahrez has gone but that does leave a bit of room for them to try and go out and pick up a creative number 10 to really keep them well balanced. Some extra firepower wouldn't go amiss either for them. You can be assured that they will be looking for some fantastic bargain in the mould of Mahrez.

Top Ten Finish odds*

Leicester 8/11 Wolves 6/5 West Ham 5/4 Southampton 7/4 Newcastle 7/4 Bournemouth 5/2 Burnley 2/1 Fulham 6/1 Brighton 7/1 Watford 7/1 Huddersfield 8.1 Cardiff 14/1 * (betting odds taken on July 28th, 2018 at 11:28 pm) Leicester are stable enough to land that top half of the table finish again. They have a pretty solid core in place and it is just going to be about adding a good couple of pieces to their ranks to help them out in staying in that position. Unless they splash big on a big-name striker, then Jamie Vardy is the solid, sensible option to be their top scorer this season. Their biggest challenge over the summer may be trying to resist the advances for some of those core players though. Not only is a top ten finish place a realistic target for them to shoot for, but they can dream a little bigger and try for a European place. They may be a good option for Cup tournaments this season on the domestic front. There is little danger of them getting into any relegation troubles on the league front, we feel.

Fixture List

Leicester will be in action on the opening night of the new Premier League season as they get a tricky trip to Manchester United on Friday, August 10th. Making a visit to Old Trafford isn’t going to be an easy thing, but this is Leicester who will have fresh legs and plenty of optimism. The Foxes, however, are 13/2 underdogs at bet365 to get the win in the game* (betting odds taken on July 28th, 2018 at 11:28 pm). Their other games in August are against Wolves and Southampton so that will give the Foxes a decent chance to get themselves going. Really then the line up through September and early October isn’t all that bad for them as Liverpool are the only other one of the big six teams in the league that they will face through to the middle of October. The Foxes do have it a bit rough down the final stretch though as their last three games of the term are against Arsenal, Man City and Chelsea.

Prediction

Leicester are going to be just fine this season as far as we can see. They have to show some resolve as well as some ambition in trying to hold onto their prized assets. If one or two of them go then the house of cards could start to tumble. But they do seem resistant to selling off more than the inevitability departure of Mahrez’s move to Man City and that is a credit to them in holding on to their status. With no distractions this season we are expecting Leicester to put together a solid base of form and make another run at a top ten finish. Boss Puel was under pressure at times last season it has to be said and he is as short at 7/1 odds in the next manager to go market* (betting odds taken on July 28th, 2018 at 11:28 pm). But we see Leicester doing alright and the Frenchman lasting the season.

Maguire move on the cards as clubs rally to get England star

Next Manager Betting & Transfers
One of the stand-out performers for England at the 2018 World Cup has been big defender Harry Maguire. He has shown great grit in the three-man backline alongside Kyle Walker and John Stones, and he popped up with a towering header to give England a lead against Sweden in their quarter-final battle. That was his first goal for his country and along with some great defensive headers and the ability to stride out from the back with the ball at his feet, he has attracted a lot of attention. So much so that Ladbrokes have reported that they have had to place five Premier League sides at 6/1 or less to sign him in the summer. Maguire moved to Leicester last summer from Hull last summer for an initial £12 million fee and was player of the year for the Foxes. Manchester United are the 9/4 favourites* (betting odds were taken from July 9th, 2018 at 11:43 pm) to be his next club after the summer transfer window with Liverpool and Manchester City also supposedly in the running. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “England fans have fallen in love with Maguire, but so have a whole host of football managers by the looks of it, with plenty thought to be interested in his services.”

Harry Maguire Club After Summer*

Man United – 9/4 Liverpool – 5/2 Man City – 11/4 Tottenham – 9/2 Chelsea – 6/1 Arsenal – 8/1 Real Madrid – 16/1 Barcelona – 16/1 * (betting odds were taken from July 9th, 2018 at 11:43 pm)

Tottenham v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 13th May 2018

Leicester
Tottenham v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League 13th May 3.00pm All of the pressure is off Tottenham’s shoulders now after picking up three home points against Newcastle in midweek which saw them lock in a Champions League place for next season. That saw them jump up into third and they just need to guarantee that they stay there. Leicester bust out of some really poor form in midweek as they delivered a big home win over Arsenal. That gives Leicester a confirmed top half of the table finish but boss Claude Puel still doesn’t look too secure in his job.

Tottenham News and Form

Spurs have secured a top four place and so there is nothing riding on this for them. They got over the line with a 1-0 win over Newcastle in midweek. Spurs have won all but one of their last seven at home now and with that kind of form, they will appeal to punters to win this as well. Tottenham’s last six wins on home soil have been with a clean sheet and Tottenham to win to nil at bet365 is at 7/5 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 p.m.) and should plenty of appeal for punters. Tottenham have earned a clean sheet in 56% of their home fixtures so far, shipping just the twelve goals. Going forward in attack they have almost returned an average of two per game and they are on a fifteen match scoring streak in the top flight at home. A Tottenham 2-0 option in the bet365 correct score market is at 8/1 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 p.m.). Harry Kane got the goal for them against Newcastle in midweek and even though since coming back from injury he hasn’t looked fit or sharp, he has scored in three of Tottenham’s last four games. Of the goals that Spurs have come up with at home this season, 63% of them have been in the second half of matches.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester snapped a run of poor form with a success over Arsenal in the weekend. The Foxes had taken just one point from five matches before taking a 3-1 win at the King Power over the Gunners on Wednesday. Overall this season Leicester's away form is just W5 D5 L8 so nothing great at all and they have lost their last two out on the road against Burnley and Crystal Palace. This season out on the road they have gone D1 L6 in their seven games against the current top eight so that doesn't bode well for them really. They did show some signs of looking more like their old selves in midweek, being quick and direct on the break. Both teams to score is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on May 9th, 2018 at 6:46 p.m.). At no point of the season have the Foxes looked very good at the back though, but a half-time draw could be a decent proposition as the Foxes have been level at half-time in 12 for their 18 away games this season. This may well be a good, relaxed and penalty entertaining fixture at Wembley.

Tottenham v Leicester Head to Head

Leicester got themselves a great 2-1 home win over Spurs at the King Power earlier in the season. That leaves things even in the last five Premier League contests with two wins each and a draw. Spurs have failed to win their last two home games against the Foxes with a draw and a loss recorded. Both teams have scored in six of the last seven Premier League meetings.

Tottenham v Leicester Betting Odds*

Tottenham 2/11, Draw 6/1, Leicester 12/1* (Betting Odds taken at 10:55 p.m. on May 9th, 2018)

Tottenham v Leicester Predictions

Tottenham to win: Spurs haven’t looked particularly sharp lately but they got over the finish line in getting a top-four finish. So that means that they can relax a bit and that could play its part in this being a high scoring game. Look for Tottenham to win & over 2.5 goals.

Leicester v Arsenal Predictions & Betting Odds – 9th May 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Arsenal Betting Tips - Premier League 9th May 7.45pm Two sides who are just playing the season out and it’s the end of the season that will be welcome for both. Arsenal will look to put some poor away form this season behind them in going in search of a win at the King Power in midweek. Leicester are pretty cold with their form at the moment and boss Claude Puel is coming under a bit of late-season scrutiny. After a home loss against West Ham on the weekend, can the Foxes respond?

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes have really hit a bad slump having picked up only one point in their last five matches and they haven’t scored in any of their last three. It has been such a disappointing finish from them and they haven’t even been able to raise themselves at the King Power. The Foxes are only D4 L2 in their last six home games and that is part of a home record of W6 D6 L6. They suffered a 2-0 loss at home against West Ham on the weekend which has left them with having conceded nine goals in their last four games played. So they can’t be trusted at the back and over 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes is at 1/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018). Leicester have taken an average of 1.2 goals per game at home in the league this season but are without one in their last two there. The Foxes have taken a home win against a current top six side, that being a 2-1 success over Spurs and they also held Manchester United to a 2-2 draw at the King Power. Can they find a way to lift themselves for their final home game?

Arsenal News and Form

The Gunners delivered a big 5-0 win over Burnley on the weekend in what was Arsene Wenger's last game in charge at the Emirates. While that extended their great home form, their away from is pretty shocking. They have lost their last six Premier League away games, going winless in seven. But they should get chances against Leicester and the Gunners have scored in all but one of their last eight on the road though and in the Ladbrokes correct score market an Arsenal 2-1 is at 15/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 2:05 a.m. on May 7th, 2018). Given the number of goals that they have conceded away from home this season then it is probably worth looking at Leicester to find a way through their defence. There has been a clean sheet for Arsenal in just 18% of their home games. They have conceded in each of their last eight away games, conceding at least two in each of their last three on the road. Overall they have conceded an average of 1.6 goals per away game. Arsenal have tallied just three away wins all season. Their last game of the season is away from home too, at Huddersfield on the weekend.

Leicester v Arsenal Head to Head

Arsenal collected a great 4-3 win at home against Leicester right at the start of the season and that was after they had fallen 3-2 down in the second half of the game. That success extends their unbeaten form against Leicester in the Premier League never having lost to them before. Arsenal W9 D4 against them from their previous meetings with Leicester in the Premier League. Three of the last four between them at Leicester though have been draws.

Leicester v Arsenal Betting Odds*

Arsenal 21/20, Leicester 5/2, Draw 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 00:06 a.m. on May 6th, 2018)

Leicester v Arsenal Predictions

Arsenal to win: Not sure what happened to Leicester but they have dropped off a long way and just aren’t there right now. Even though they have not been fantastic away from home this season, Arsenal actually look a bit of value to go and get three points.

Leicester v West Ham Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th May 2018

Leicester
Leicester v West Ham Betting Tips - Premier League 5th May 3.00pm Neither side are particularly in great form but of the two of them, West Ham are certainly more desperate for the points. They are only three points away from the relegation zone heading into the weekend and have shipped eight goals in their last two games. Leicester were torn to shreds by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park last weekend, can they get some positive momentum back behind them on home soil?

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes are struggling towards the end of the season as they have only managed to pick up a D1 L3 record in their last four games played. It’s a poor finish that they have put together and they haven’t been difficult games in that sequence either. Leicester took a big 5-0 hammering by Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park last weekend and that is nine goals shipped in their last four games. Both teams to score at William Hill is at 13/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:15 p.m. on May 1st, 2018). Leicester have produced a W6 D6 L5 home record for the season and they are currently on a five-match winless streak at the King Power (D4 L1). So even though they have not been picking up the wins, they have still been hard to beat. In the William Hill correct score market a Leicester 2-1 option at 9/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:15 p.m. on May 1st, 2018) and may well have plenty of appeal going into this one. The defences of both teams look pretty vulnerable really and even though Leicester have produced only two goals in their last four games, they look more of a threat than West Ham.

West Ham News and Form

West Ham’s relegation concerns are going to mount if they lose this one. They start the weekend just three points clear of the drop zone. Their defence has shipped eight goals in their last two league games and has looked a real mess. There has been just one clean sheet in their last eight league games now and in that sequence, they have conceded at least three goals in five of those eight fixtures. Leicester should get chances in this. Following this West Ham have a tough game against Manchester United so they really need something out of this. West Ham have taken one win in their last eight games (D2 L5) so the form is not there. They have produced just a D1 L4 record in their last five away games and have only tallied the two away successes all season too. At the back, the Irons have conceded at over two goals per game on their travels. Over 2.5 goals at William Hill is going to be worth a look as 72% of West Ham’s away games have gone over 2.5 goals while 56% have gone over 3.5 goals. Can their defence hang in there to get something out of this game?

Leicester v West Ham Head to Head

West Ham and Leicester played out a 1-1 draw in the capital earlier this season and that result extended Leicester unbeaten form against the Hammers to seven matches (W5 D2). So the Foxes hold the advantage in the current head to head for sure. Each of their last three wins at home in all competitions against West Ham have been produced by a one-goal margin. Five of the last seven meetings have gone over 2.5 goals and both teams have scored in all but one of the last seven clashes as well.

Crystal Palace v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 28th April 2018

Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League 28th April 3.00pm Crystal Palace should be safe for the season as they go into this one with a six-point buffer between themselves and the drop zone. Three points out of this home game though would certainly go a long way to settling them down further. Leicester haven’t quite been at their best recently and could only manage a draw at home on Thursday against Southampton. But at least they did get last weekend off for a rest.

Crystal Palace News and Form

Palace are doing well to keep themselves afloat and away from relegation this season with five points returned from their last three league games. In their last home game, they took a 3-2 victory over Brighton, showing a bit of character there to dig that out. That snapped a three-match losing streak of home form that they were on as well. Palace drew 0-0 at Watford on the weekend to pick up another survival point. Back at home they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last five and have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three at Selhurst Park. Both teams to score at William Hill is at 4/6 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:58 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018). Palace have scored in all but one of their last six games at Selhurst Park and the Eagles are actually undefeated at home against sides sitting between 7th and 13th currently in the table. In the William Hill correct score market a Crystal Palace 2-1 option is at 15/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 9:58 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018). 65% of games at Selhurst Park this season have ended over 2.5 goals so this should be entertaining.

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes are not quite on top of their game at the moment with just a W2 D4 L4 record in their last ten played. They faced Southampton last week at the King Power and for most of the game they were pretty flat and played out a 0-0 draw only. Leicester suffered a 2-1 loss at Burnley in their last away game and that is a W2 L3 record in their last five road games, so they are hit and miss. Leicester's overall away record is W5 D5 L7 for the season. It is worth going and having a look at a half-time draw at William Hill because the Foxes have been drawing at half time in 12 of their 17 away games. Their production in front of goal on the road has been pretty good as they have averaged 1.6 goals per away game, however, they haven’t been tight at the back at all, conceding at around the same rate. The Foxes have earned a clean sheet in just 18% of their away games. But as a positive that have scored in each of their last five road games and Jamie Vardy has a nine-goal haul for the season on the road, making him their top away scorer. 65% of their away games this term have ended over 2.5 goals.

Crystal Palace v Leicester Head to Head

Crystal Palace picked up a 3-0 success on the road at the King Power back in December, a result which many wouldn’t have seen coming. Leicester are up in the recent head to head meetings though with a W3 D1 L1 record in their last five league outings against the Eagles. Leicester are unbeaten (W1 D1) from their last two visits to Selhurst Park as well. Each of the last three Premier League fixtures between the pair have gone above the 2.5 goal line but both teams have scored in just two of the last seven games.
