Leicester v Southampton Predictions & Betting Odds – 19th April 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Southampton Betting Tips - Premier League 19th April 7.45pm Things are looking a bit desperate now in the relegation zone for Southampton who are five points away from safety. They are struggling and they blew a 2-0 lead at home against Chelsea on the weekend to come away empty handed. Leicester have lost their last two league games now though having gone down against Burnley on the weekend. Will they be able to respond at home and sink the Saints further towards the Championship?

Leicester News and Form

Leicester are just in a little dip of form having lost back to back games, which was after drawing back to back games. So they are W2 D2 L2 in their last six. They haven't collected a win in any of their last four home games (D3 L1) and have surprisingly failed to delivered there in some easier-looking fixtures recently. Leicester are W6 D5 L5 for the season at the King Power and have netted in each of their last seven there. Overall home and away they are on a ten-match scoring streak of form, so it’s likely that the will score. Both teams to score with Paddy Power is at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:12 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) and that’s because Leicester aren’t particularly tight at the back. They don't have a clean sheet in any of their last four home games, so will be a little vulnerable there. Leicester have produced 22 goals in their 16 home fixtures and just 44% of their home fixtures have managed to get above 2.5 goals. Jamie Vardy is on a four-match scoring streak in the Premier League and is the 7/2 first goalscorer favorite* (Betting Odds taken at 10:12 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) with Paddy Power.

Southampton News and Form

Southampton will have been disappointed with themselves having thrown away a 2-0 lead to come away empty-handed against Chelsea. Basically, they can’t afford to lose this now. They are on a four-match losing streak at the moment though, going winless in seven (D2 L5). The Saints have conceded exactly three goals in each of their last four games, but they have shown a bit of fight with back to back 3-2 losses against Arsenal and then Chelsea. Away from home in the top flight Southampton are on a three-match losing streak away from St Mary’s and have won just twice on their travels all season (D6 L8). That’s been terribly bad form from them and the Saints are averaging under a goal per game away from home so far, conceding at 1.8 on average per game. There has been no clean sheet in their last six road games and overall have only managed one in 19% of their away games. They just have to go out and continue to try and be bold at the moment because they are in dire straits. There’s just no point holding back at the moment. In the Paddy Power correct score market the shortest priced option is the 1-1 draw at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:12 p.m. on April 15th, 2018).

Leicester v Southampton Head to Head

Southampton suffered a 4-1 home loss against the Foxes earlier this season. In the previous seven Premier League meetings the Foxes are W3 D2 L2 against the Saints. Last season’s meeting at the King Power ended in a 0-0 draw and the Foxes are unbeaten in their last four home games against Southampton in all competitions. Leicester have not conceded in their last three at home against the Saints.

Leicester v Southampton Betting Odds*

Leicester 5/4, Southampton 11/5, Draw 23/10* (Betting Odds taken at 10:12 p.m. on April 15th, 2018)

Leicester v Southampton Predictions

Leicester to win: The confidence of the Saints can’t be high, not after what happened to them on the weekend. Leicester are, by and large, a solid home side and can rally themselves to get three midweek points on the board to help secure their top half of the table finish.

Leicester v Newcastle Predictions & Betting Odds – 7th April 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Newcastle Betting Tips - Premier League 7th April 3.00pm Both of these have found a little bit of form in having won their last two games respectively in the league. Leicester took a solid away win at Brighton on the weekend to continue to hold down a top-eight place while Newcastle were narrowly getting the better of Huddersfield. So it may be a tight old battle between the two of them at the King Power

Leicester News and Form

Leicester are four games unbeaten in the league now, winning their two with successes at West Brom and Brighton. This weekend it is back to the King Power where they have taken three straight draws and all of those 1-1 ties as well. The 1-1 correct score with Paddy Power is at 6/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 7:01 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). The Foxes are on a six-match scoring streak at the King Power, but they don’t have a clean sheet in their last three so the both teams to score at Paddy Power is worth considering at 4/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:51 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018). Jamie Vardy has been in decent form recently in front of goal and the England man is at 10/3 odds with Paddy Power* (Betting Odds taken at 4:51 p.m. on April 3rd, 2018) in the first goalscorer market. Regardless of the result, it may be worth looking under 2.5 goals for the game as 60% of Leicester's home games have finished under the goal line.

Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle have produced well recently, well enough to get themselves safe from any relegation worries. They are seven points clear of the bottom three heading into the weekend and they have taken a W3 D4 L8 record on their travels this season in the top flight. They are without a win in any of their last four away from St James Park though (D2 L2) so may struggle to do enough to get the wins on the board. The Magpies have averaged exactly one goal per away game this term while they have shipped at 1.7 per game on average. There has been no clean sheet in their last four away games. 64% of the goals they have conceded on the road have been in the second half of matches. Five times this season Newcastle have been drawing 0-0 and that’s a decent half time correct score option at Paddy Power. They are picking up the points but they are still lacking the goals to go out and threaten teams greatly. But as a positive, they do have the best defensive record of all teams starting eighth or lower this weekend in the top flight.

Leicester v Newcastle Head to Head

Leicester took a 3-2 away win at St James Park earlier in the season and that moved them onto a four-match winning streak against the Magpies in the Premier League. Three of their last four wins against Newcastle have come with a clean sheet. On home soil, Leicester will be defending a seven-match undefeated streak of form against the Magpies in all competitions (W3 D4). They have won each of their last three at home against Newcastle now.

Leicester v Newcastle Betting Odds*

Leicester 10/11, Draw 5/2, Newcastle 3/1* (Betting Odds taken at 8:11 p.m. on April 2nd, 2018)

Leicester v Newcastle Predictions

Leicester to win: Leicester have home form against the Magpies and they are playing well enough at the moment to extend that. The two should be pretty evenly matched up but Leicester have the extra bit of quality going for them. Home win.

Brighton v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 31st March 2018

Leicester
Brighton v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League 31st March 3.00pm The Seagulls have a nice cushion of six points between themselves and the drop zone and anything out of this one would be a positive return to action as they take on a side sitting above them in the Premier League table. Leicester snapped a log winless streak just before the break, so will they pick up from there or need some time to get back into the groove of things?

Brighton News and Form

Brighton have been ticking along nicely since the end of January really and are W3 D2 L1 in their last six Premier League fixtures.So they are up in mid-table looking pretty safe at the moment and their home form has been great. They have won each of their last three at the Amex in the top flight, netting a total of nine goals in that positive sequence too. It has all been very good from them and the last time they took a home win it was Arsenal they beat by a 2-1 scoreline. They are still getting troubled at the back and they haven’t managed a league clean sheet this year. So both teams to score at bet365 for 19/20 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 04:27 p.m. on March 26th, 2018) looks a viable enough option for this one at the Amex. Brighton have a five-match scoring streak going at home (their last nine overall home and away combined) and have netted at least two of their own in each of their last three. 67% of their league goals at the Amex this term have been after the halftime break.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester were not running in particularly hot form leading up to the international break. They did bag a 4-1 victory over bottom side West Brom in tier the last match, but they were without a win in their five previous games (D3 L2) in the league. Their triumph over the Baggies at the Hawthorns snapped a five-match winless streak of away from that Leicester were on, losing four of those. So their away form isn’t great at the moment which could present Brighton a good chance in this. Leicester haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last six league outings, but they have scored in each of their last seven so over 2.5 goals at bet365 for 5/4 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 04:27 p.m. on March 26th, 2018) looks good value as this could be a really entertaining match up at the Amex. Leicester have been level at half time in eleven of their away fixtures this season and 67% of their fixtures away from the King Power have made it over the 2.5 goal line. Of the goals that Leicester have conceded this season, almost two-thirds of them have been in the second half of matches. Leicester City have scored in 80% of their away matches.    

Brighton v Leicester Head to Head

It was Leicester on top when the two met at the King Power earlier in the season, beating the Seagulls 2-0. That was their first game since the 2013/14 Championship season when Brighton won both fixtures. The Seagulls are on a four-match unbeaten streak at home against Leicester (W3 D1). Both teams have scored in just three of the last eight league meetings between them.

Brighton v Leicester Betting Odds*

Leicester 6/4, Brighton 9/5, Draw 9/4* (Betting Odds taken at 04:13 a.m. on March 26th, 2018)

Brighton v Leicester Predictions

Draw: While Leicester are sitting above Brighton, the Seagulls should have enough spirit about them to grind out a point for themselves in this one. It would be a good point to nudge them towards safety at the end of the season.

West Brom v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 10th March 2018

West Brom
West Brom v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League 10th March 3.00pm West Brom are staring Championship football next season in the eye. They have lost their last five games and this looks to be a hopeless situation for them. A win in this one would offer some kind of hope and probably keep Alan Pardew in a job. Leicester have just lost their way a little bit having failed to win some favourable looking home games recently. So will that put them at risk on their travels?

West Brom News and Form

Five defeats on the bounce is what West Brom have under their belt going into this one. They suffered a 1-0 defeat out at Watford last weekend to sink them further into relegation problems. Another defeat here would probably be the end of Alan Pardew. West Brom have lost their last two at the Hawthorns, one goal margin defeats against Southampton and Huddersfield, so that may be a good indicator for the outcome of this one. West Brom have only collected the two home wins all season with a W2 D7 L5 record there and they have won only one of their last thirteen there. They need to rally themselves somehow but it doesn’t look likely to happen on current form at all. They have scored in each of their last three home games at least, so over 2.5 goals because of that is at 23/20 odds with bet365* (Betting Odds taken at 10:33 p.m. on March 7th, 2018), which could be worth a flutter. The both teams to score option may offer something too as the Baggies have scored in all but one of their last six home games. The Baggies have netted just fifteen goals in fourteen home games and while their output has been better under Pardew, their defence hasn’t improved.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester have found that their winning touch has deserted them lately. They have drawn three of their last four games, all 1-1 results at home and strangely that was against sides in the bottom half of the table, games that the Foxes were expected to win. Each of those draws were by a 1-1 scoreline and in the bet365 correct score market the shortest priced option is indeed a 1-1 draw at 11/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:33 p.m. on March 7th, 2018). Leicester have put up a W3 D5 L6 for the season away from home in the Premier League and they have lost four of their last five (D1). They did net in each of those four defeats though, and the half time draw is a decent option for the game as the Foxes have been level at the break in ten of their away games this season. Leicester have conceded 64% of their road goals after half time in games, but they haven’t taken a clean sheet in any of their last five. But with them having scored in each of their last six, they should be in this. Jamie Vardy has scored Leicester’s last three away goals.

West Brom v Leicester Head to Head

This will be just the eighth Premier League meeting between the two sides and from those previous seven, Leicester are narrowly W3 D2 L2 ahead. When the two met in October last year there was a 1-1 draw played out at the King Power. Leicester though are on a three-match winning sequence at the Hawthorns from their three previous Premier League visits there, each of the wins by a one-goal margin.

West Brom v Leicester Betting Odds*

Leicester 6/4, West Brom 15/8, Draw 11/5* (Betting Odds taken at 11:16 p.m. on March 6th, 2018)

West Brom v Leicester Predictions

Draw: Just because Leicester have lost their winning touch, it may be worth backing a share of the spoils in this one. West Brom certainly don’t look like winning but they may be able to avoid defeat at least which isn’t going to do anything for them really at the end of the day.

Leicester v Bournemouth Predictions & Betting Odds – 3rd March 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Bournemouth Betting Tips - Premier League 3rd March 3.00pm Leicester surprisingly could only manage a 1-1 home draw with Stoke last weekend, a game in which they were strong favourites to win against the relegation-threatened Potters. It didn't quite happen for them though, but they get another shot a three home points this weekend as Bournemouth pay a visit. The Cherries couldn’t shake off the attention of Newcastle in a draw on the south coast last weekend.

Leicester News and Form

There have been no wins for Leicester in their last four league games now (D2 L2). The surprising thing about this run of form for the Foxes is that there were some winnable home games for them in the sequence. Their last two home games have both ended in a 1-1 draw against Swansea and Stoke. Still, Leicester are without defeat in their last five home fixtures in the Premier League so they are reliable enough to avoid defeat in this one. The Foxes have scored an average of 1.4 goals per home game and Jamie Vardy continues (as always) to look their best route to goal and he is the Ladbrokes first goalscorer favourite at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 10:22 p.m. on February 26th, 2018). It could be worth weighing up both teams to score in the game as the Foxes haven’t been watertight this season. While they have hit the back of the net in each of their last five home games in the league, they have just the two clean sheets in their last six at the King Power.

Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth have done ever so well to turn their season around and they are now in a situation where they have suffered only one defeat in their last nine league games. There was a 2-2 draw for them on the weekend against Newcastle and that means that the Cherries have scored at least two goals in seven of their last nine games. Over 3.5 goals at Ladbrokes for 9/5* (Betting Odds taken at 10:22 p.m. on February 26th, 2018) is well worth a flutter in this one. Almost 30% of Bournemouth's away games this season have gone over the goal line and ten of their last eleven home and away have made it over 2.5 goals. They suffered a setback in their last away game though as they were taken down heavily 4-1 at Huddersfield. Their away form isn't great with only the one victory in their last eight away games, part of a W3 D4 L7 for the season on the road. Two of those wins were by a one-goal margin, while they have lost four of their seven on the road by a one-goal margin as well. They are on a nine-match scoring streak in the league so are value to get themselves in this game.

Leicester v Bournemouth Head to Head

When the Cherries faced up against Leicester at home earlier this season there was a 0-0 draw played out. Four of the five previous Premier League contests between them have ended in a draw (two 0-0 draws and two 1-1 draws). The one exception was a home win for Bournemouth last season. One of the last six games between these two have managed to make it over 2.5 goals.

Leicester v Bournemouth Betting Odds*

Leicester 5/6, Draw 11/4, Bournemouth 3/1* (Betting Odds taken at 04:27 a.m. on February 26th, 2018)

Leicester v Bournemouth Predictions

Leicester to win: The Foxes struggled last weekend against Stoke, but have good home form overall and are worth backing to sneak a win in this one. It probably would be nothing more than by a 1-0 result given the way previous games between them have gone.
/

Leicester v Stoke Predictions & Betting Odds – 24th February 2018

Stoke
Leicester v Stoke Betting Tips - Premier League 24th February 12.30pm Leicester have the chance to climb up into seventh on Saturday as they start the weekend’s action at home against Stoke at lunchtime. The Foxes could do with a pick-me-up too having failed to win any of their last three. Stoke are still in a spot of bother in the relegation zone and only a win would get them out of there at the end of this match.

Leicester News and Form

The home form of Leicester has been pretty solid and they have collected only the one defeat in their last seven league fixtures at the King Power. So they are going pretty well and are on a four-match undefeated streak of league form there and have banked a clean sheet in two of their last three home games. Leicester to win to nil at bet365 is at 15/8 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6.33 p.m. on February 20th, 2018) and is a decent proposition. The Foxes have averaged just around 1.5 goals per game at home this season and they have netted in each of their last four at the King Power, so that puts them in great shape really for a win against the struggling Stoke. Jamie Vardy is on a four-match scoring streak of form in the league at the moment and makes a great first-time goalscorer option. Leicester have been strong starters to matches this season and have been leading at half time in six home games this season. The most frequent half time score at the King Power this season has been 1-0 in Leicester's favour.

Stoke News and Form

Stoke start the weekend second from bottom in the league with only West Brom doing worse. However, they have gone W1 D2 L1 in their last four games which is points on the board at least. But the rub of that reality is that all of those points were collected on home soil and they are on a three-match losing sequence away from home in the top flight, scoring just the one goal in those three games too. Stoke have managed to collect just the two points in their current eight-match winless streak of away from that they are on. They have only picked up the one away clean sheet all season and haven’t had a great impact going forward themselves with just eleven goals in 13 matches. That could play its part in this going under 2.5 goals which at bet356 is at 9/10 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 6.33 p.m. on February 20th, 2018). Stoke have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three road games and with only a W1 D3 L9 record away from home this season, that’s 69% of road games which they have lost.

Leicester v Stoke Head to Head

The Foxes are on a two match winning streak at home against the Potters, with both wins coming with a clean sheet. The Foxes are W3 D3 L1 up in the head to head against the Potters from their seven previous Premier League games. There was a 2-2 draw between them at Stoke earlier this season, and Leicester have suffered only one defeat in their last eight against Stoke in all competitions at the King Power.

Leicester v Stoke Betting Odds*

Leicester 8/11, Draw 5/2, Stoke 4/1* (Betting Odds taken at 00:22 a.m. on February 20th, 2018.)

Leicester v Stoke Predictions

Leicester to win: It is hard to see the Foxes slipping up in this home contest. They have been ticking over well at home and Stoke are not a major threat. It’s worth having a look at both teams to score, but a home win still.
/

Manchester City v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 10th February 2018

Manchester City
Manchester City v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League 10th February 5.30pm Surprisingly Manchester City were held to a draw at Turf Moor against Burnley last weekend in the top flight, dropping more points on the road. However, their home form is right on point at the moment and basically has been all season. So that means a difficult evening is in store for Leicester on Saturday evening. That having been said, the Foxes have enjoyed a pretty successful start to 2018 in the Premier League.

Manchester City News and Form

So City had another wobble out on the road on the weekend, but their home form has been impeccable this season. You can’t find fault with a team who have gone W12 D1 L0 at home at all. The Citizens have scored at least three goals in each of their last five home games now and you are looking at 10/11 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 2:52 a.m.) at bet365 for this fixture to get up over 3.5 goals. Sergio Aguero heads up the first goalscorer market for the fixture and he has seven goals in his last four home Premier League games. That’s some going. City have averaged 3.5 goals per game at home this season while at the back they have still only conceded the nine goals. So they have been tight but have only the two clean sheets in their last eight home league games. So that suggests that the Foxes may get something against them and it is worth considering both teams to score in the game. Going back to the scoring power of City, they have scored at least two goals in their last twelve Premier League home games. Can Leicester handle that?

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes have not won in four away games in the Premier League, picking up just a point in that stretch of games. That was from a great 0-0 draw out at Stamford Bridge back in the middle of January. Each of their last three away defeats in the Premier league have all been by a 2-1 scoreline and in the bet365 correct score market a Man City 2-1 option is at 7/1 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 2:52 a.m.). The Foxes have scored pretty well away from home, just about one and a half goals per game so they could create something. They have been level at half time in nine of their thirteen away games so a half-time draw may be a decent shout in looking for some value as well for this game. 62% of Leicester’s away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals so this should turn out to be a high scoring affair and the Foxes have collected a clean sheet in just a paltry 15% of their away games so far this term. They will be vulnerable at the back but will always pose a danger through their quick counter attacks. The Foxes have scored in 77% of their road games this season.

Manchester City v Leicester Head to Head

The Citizens picked up a 2-0 win at the King Power against Leicester back in November and then a month later beat them on penalties there in an EFL Cup battle. That is a three-match undefeated streak that the Citizens are on now against the Foxes in all options. However, in the last five Premier League meetings, things are even with two wins each and one draw. On home soil, though Manchester City have won three of their last four against the Foxes (L1). Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings in all competitions.

Manchester City v Leicester Betting Odds*

Man City 1/5, Draw 11/2, Leicester 12/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 2:52 a.m.)

Manchester City v Leicester Predictions

Man City to win: The Citizens should create enough chances on home soil to get the win in the bag in this one. Leicester doesn't boast the tightest of defence, especially out on the road so they will likely give up chances. Manchester City to win & both teams to score will carry some appeal it to the evening kick-off.

Leicester v Swansea Predictions & Betting Odds – 3rd February 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Swansea Betting Tips - Premier League 3rd February 3.00pm Swansea have shown some drastic improvement under Carlos Carvalhal and they hauled themselves out of the relegation zone with a home win over Arsenal in midweek. That is both Liverpool and Arsenal they have taken down recently. Leicester though have been in pretty good shape recently at the King Power in the top flight and will be looking for the third win on the bounce there.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester have won their last two top-flight home games, losing just one of their last six league matches at the King Power (W4 D1 L1) so it has been pretty good for them. They have also bagged a clean sheet in each of their last three home wins too so Leicester to win to nil at Betfair is at 13/8 odds* (betting odds taken January 31st at 6:22 p.m.) and has appeal. Leicester hold a home record of W6 D2 L4 for the term and now they have scored at least two goals in all but of their last six on home soil. So there has been a decent output from them, a fairly consistent one as well. Only on two occasions at the King Power this season have the Foxes failed to score and on both of those occasions, Leicester lost (against Man City and Crystal Palace). Jamie Vardy is the 11/10 anytime goalscorer favourite at Betfair for the game* (betting odds taken January 31st at 5:15 p.m.) and he got a goal in a defeat at Everton in midweek. Leicester are generally strong starters at home, scoring the opening goal in seven of their 12 home fixtures this season.

Swansea News and Form

Swansea have been showing all of the qualities that they need to get themselves safe from relegation. They have delivered a great team spirit along with some grit. The Swans have landed back to back league wins, shock wins at that, over Arsenal and Liverpool to bag enough points to get them temporarily clear of the relegation zone in midweek. So now there is fight and now there is hope after seven points collected from their last three league games. Both of the wins were at home though, so can they deliver also on the road? Well, they are unbeaten in their last two away from the Liberty Stadium, beating Watford and drawing with Newcastle. There have been only the two away wins all season from Swansea though but they have a solid chance of survival right now if they can keep the momentum going. It’s been quite the turnaround since Carlos Carvalhal got a hold of them. Swansea have netted just the eight goals away from home this season and they have conceded in each of their last nine out on the road. Defensively they are doing so much better at the moment and under 2.5 goals at Betfair is going to be worth a look. They probably wouldn't be unhappy with a point out of this fixture.

Leicester v Swansea Head to Head

Leicester are up in the head to head against Swansea from recent meetings. The Foxes won 2-1 at Swansea earlier this season and back at the King Power, they are on a seven-match winning streak against the Welsh Club. Overall home and away Leicester have lost just one of their last six games against the Swans. Both teams have scored in just two of the last seven meetings between the two.

Leicester v Swansea Betting Odds*

Leicester 4/6, Draw 29/10, Swansea 5/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 30th, 2018 at 9:30 p.m.)

Leicester v Swansea Predictions

Draw: The Swans have been showing a steel that wasn’t there before Carvalho took over, but despite that, they are going up against a decent home side in the form of Leicester. Swansea’s grit and determination may well earn them a point out of this away game and that would probably take that with pleasure.

Everton v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 31st January 2018

Everton

Everton v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League 31st January 7.45pm

The Toffees are looking to snap a bit of a frustrating winless streak of form in the top flight as they go into action at Goodison Park against Leicester on Wednesday. The Toffees are sat in ninth place heading into the next round of matches, but Leicester are two places above them and with a six-point advantage over them. So for Leicester, this is a good chance to pick up three points which would help see them drive towards a top-seven finish this season.

Everton News and Form

The Toffees are on a winless slump at the moment in the Premier League having failed to collect a victory in any of their last six. During those half-dozen games, Everton have only recorded the two goals a well. So that has been a real struggle for them lately. But they can take some confidence perhaps from their home form which has seen them lose only one of their last seven at Goodison Park in the Premier League, but they are currently winless in three there with a D2 L1 record. Under 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes is worth a look, as each of Everton’s last three Premier League home games have gone under the goal line. They managed to fight back to earn a 1-1 draw at home against West Brom last time out and that leaves them W6 D2 L4 at home this season in the top flight. Everton have averaged 1.5 goals per game on home soil this season but have shipped at a rate of 1.3 per game. 71% of their points earned this season in the top flight have come on home soil, but only four teams in the entire division have conceded more goals than they have done. With no clean sheets and a lack of goals, they are going to be vulnerable.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester have collected seven points from their last three Premier League games, each of those games bringing a clean sheet as well for them. Leicester to win to nil at Ladbrokes, therefore, may be worth considering for this one as they do carry more of an offensive threat than the Toffees do. Before they played out a 0-0 draw at Chelsea in their last away game (despite a wealth of chances) Leicester had scored in seven consecutive away games. Leicester have taken three wins only out on the road in the top flight this season which is not great at all, and they are currently winless in their last three away from the King Power. They have not been behind at half-time in an away game, so a half-time draw at Ladbrokes is worth considering. Leicester have averaged 1.5 goals per game on their travels and 61% of their goals away from home have come in the first half of matches. Overall Leicester have scored in 75% of their away games this season and they have Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Shinji Okazaki joint top-away goal scorer for them, all with four goals each.

Everton v Leicester Head to Head

Leicester took a good home win over Everton earlier in the season and they have a bit of form at Goodison Park, winning their last two visits there, one in the FA Cup and one in the Premier League. Six of the last eight meetings between the two clubs have gone over 2.5 goals so there is a good trend there and in the last seven Premier League matches, Leicester are W3 D2 L2 up against the Toffees. Both teams have scored in eight of the last ten meetings between the two clubs in all competitions.

Leicester v Watford Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th January 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Watford Betting Tips - Premier League 20th January 3.00pm Leicester could really use the pick-me-up of a league victory and they came pretty close to landing one last weekend out at Stamford Bridge, having to settle for a draw against Chelsea. They played really well in the game and will be confident back at the King Power in this one. Watford are in a real struggle at the moment because of defensive weaknesses and could once more, be there for the taking.

Leicester News and Form

Even though Leicester have managed one win in their last six league games there is plenty of evidence to back them for a win in this one. They played very well in a 0-0 draw at Chelsea last weekend, and they did land a home win in their last game at the King Power, a 3-0 victory over Huddersfield. The Foxes are W3 D1 L1 in their last five home games and have scored well at home. They have scored at least two goals in six of their eleven home games this season. The Foxes average around 1.5 goals per game at the King Power and have scored at least two goals in their last two home fixture. Over 2.5 goals at Paddy Power looks a decent proposition for this one and in the correct score market, a Leicester 3-1 victory may well have some good appeal out a price of 14/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 16th, 2018 at 1:14 a.m.). They created so many chances in the first half against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, it was crazy that the game ended up 0-0. Time and time again, inspired by Riyad Mahrez, they tore Chelsea’s defence apart. Overall Leicester are W5 D2 L4 at home this season in the top flight and can target three points here.

Watford News and Form

Watford are still all over the place at the back. Last weekend they played host to the struggling Southampton who are a low-scoring side and Watford found themselves 2-0 down at half time. They did manage a fight back to their credit, leaving it to the last minute to get an equalizer through Abdoulaye Doucoure who got his seventh goal of the season. They are on a really poor W1 D1 L6 record at the moment in their last eight and away from home, they have little to cheer about recently. They have lost their last four away games and they have gone only W1 L6 in their last seven on the road. Their defence cannot be trusted at all right now and they have moved out to ten games without a clean sheet in the Premier League now. Both teams to score at Paddy Power at least is going to be a pretty solid option for the game. 64% of Watford's away games this season have gone over 2.5 goals and this should be a really end to end entertaining affair as Watford do carry a scoring threat, but they have conceded at least two goals in each of their last three games. Watford have scored in 82% of their road games this season. This could be the most entertaining game of the top flight this weekend.

Leicester v Watford Head to Head

Leicester suffered a 2-1 loss out at Watford back on December 26th but the two have alternated wins in their last four meetings. Leicester have won both of their previous two Premier League home games against the Hornets and they have an extended unbeaten streak of ten home matches without a loss against Watford. There have been plenty of goals between them recently and seven of the last eight contests between the two sides have seen at least three goals in them.

Leicester v Watford Betting Odds*

Leicester 5/6, Draw 13/5, Watford 7/2* (Betting Odds taken on January 15th, 2018 at 9:42 p.m.)

Leicester v Watford Predictions

Leicester to win: The Foxes should get enough chances on home soil against a flimsy Watford defence to get the win on the board in this one. Watford are just struggling pretty badly at the back and while Leicester aren’t in hot form, they can collect a win in a game where both teams score.
