Leicester v West Ham Predictions & Betting Odds – 27th October 2018

Leicester
Leicester v West Ham Betting Tips - Premier League, 27th October 5.30pm It is a big game for both of these because they both need to arrest a drop in form. Leicester and West Ham have both lost their last two league games but with home advantage and a clear goal-scoring advantage over the Hammers, Leicester should be confident of home points. Read our predictions for Leicester v West Ham.

Leicester News and Form

The Foxes lost 3-1 at Arsenal on Monday after having opened the scoring in the match. That is back to back defeats for them now. Leicester W2 L2 in their four home games so far this season, alternating between a win and a loss. Leicester have scored in every league fixture played this season and have scored at least two in four of their last five. With a chance of a clean sheet, under 2.5 goals looks a good fit for the game at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:57 pm) Leicester have picked up just the two clean sheets this season, one of them at the King Power in their first home game of the season. The Foxes are missing defender Wes Morgan through suspension for the game Jamie Vardy is a doubt for the game. There have been over 2.5 goals scored in 6 of Leicester's last 7 league games. Leicester have conceded 80% of their home goals in the first half of matches this season. Both teams to NOT score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:57 pm). The Foxes have scored the opening goal in just one of their four league games at the King Power this season.

Leicester v West Ham Head to Head

West Ham took four points from their two league games against Leicester last term Leicester have lost just one of their last seven against West Ham in the league (W4 D2 L1) The Foxes are W3 D1 L1 in their last five at home against West Ham in all competitions Five of the last eight meetings have produced at least three goals Both teams have scored in six of the last eight clashes

West Ham News and Form

West Ham’s revival turned out to be short-lived as they have suffered back to back 1-0 defeats against Brighton and Spurs. The Irons are just W1 L3 away from home this season and they have scored in just two of their four road games. Each of West Ham’s last three league defeats were 1-0 reverses. A Leicester 1-0 correct score is at 7/1 while a bigger Leicester 2-1 scoreline is at 17/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:57 pm). Overall home and away West Ham have failed to score in five of their nine league games so far. 75% of West Ham’s away games have made it above the 2.5 goal line. Marko Arnautovic has scored in two of West Ham’s last three away games. He is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option for the game* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:57 pm). Striker Andriy Yarmolenko has been ruled out for six months. Carlos Sanchez, Jack Wilshere and Manuel Lanzini are all out as well along with Pedro Obiang, Winston Reid and Andy Carroll. Of the goals that West Ham have produced on the road this season, all but one of them have been in the first half of matches. Only four sides have scored fewer goals in the league this season than West Ham have managed to do.

Leicester v West Ham Predictions

Leicester to win: Leicester are far more productive in front of goal than the Hammers are and we think that will be the difference at the end of the day. With the Hammers hampered by injuries, a Leicester to win to nil option is decent.

Arsenal v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 22nd October 2018

Arsenal
Arsenal v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League, 22nd October 8.00pm Will Arsenal be able to make it seven straight wins in the top flight as they return to action after the international break? They get an extra rest too with this being a Monday night fixture. Leicester haven’t had a bad season at all and they are likely to play their part in what could be a good open game. Read our predictions for Arsenal v Leicester.

Arsenal News and Form

There has been no stopping Arsenal who are on a six-match winning streak in the Premier League. So things are going smoothly for them and the Gunners have scored at least two goals in each of their last seven games played. They banked a big 5-1 away win at Fulham in their last match before the international break. Being so fluent in front of goal, it is likely that they are going to carve out plenty of opportunities here and therefore over 2.5 goals looks a good proposition at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). All but three of their league games this season have made it over the line. At home, they are on a three-match winning streak, each of those victories coming by a two-goal margin which is a trend to consider. Arsenal can be supported at 7/2 to win by that margin in this fixture* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). Another trend with the Gunners seen them having been drawing at halftime and winning at full time in each of their last six games. There are doubts over Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey, while Pierre Emerick Aubameyang could return to the starting eleven.

Leicester News and Form

You never quite know what you are going to get out of Leicester as they have produced a W4 L4 record so far this season. In their final match before the international break, they lost 2-1 at home against Everton. Away from home, the Foxes have posted a mixed W2 L2 record. They have had no trouble scoring this season, as they have found the back of the net all of their matches, so both teams to score at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm) is a solid proposition. Jamie Vardy has two goals in his last three games for the Foxes and is pretty consistent and reliable as a goalscorer option. On their travels, Leicester have produced seven goals in their four games, with three of those four fixtures ending over 2.5 goals. They have two clean sheets under their belt this season, one of them on the road. They have produced at least two goals in each of their last three road games in the top flight and 86% of their away goals have happened in the second half of matches. The Foxes will be missing Wes Morgan through suspension while there Demarai Gray and Matty James will also be out on the sidelines.

Arsenal v Leicester Head to Head

There was a home win for each in last season’s meetings, which produced a total of eleven goals in two thrilling fixtures. Arsenal took a 4-3 success over the Foxes at the Emirates and that leaves them on a seven-match winning streak on home soil against them. So they have a perfect Premier League home record against the Foxes. Arsenal have won six of the last seven Premier League meetings home and away games the Foxes (D1).

Arsenal v Leicester Predictions

Arsenal to win: Both teams have been reliable in front of goal this season, but Arsenal look to have the competitive edge, especially on home soil. They are pretty solid value for a good three points and an Arsenal to win to nil & both teams to score option appeals.

Leicester v Everton Predictions & Betting Odds – 6th October 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Everton Betting Tips - Premier League, 6th October 3.00pm This could be a good contest at the King Power as Leicester have been doing pretty well lately. They are looking for what would be their third straight win in the league and they are three points better off than the Toffees are. Everton snapped a winless streak last weekend as they destroyed Fulham at Goodison. Will they get any change out of the Foxes? Read our predictions for Leicester v Everton.

Leicester News and Form

It is back to back Premier League wins for Leicester now taking them up to a W4 L3 record this season. So it’s not been too bad for them. They have been scoring freely that is for sure as they have averaged almost two goals per game this season. In all but two of their games, this term in the top flight they have scored at least two goals. Given the high scoring battles that Leicester and Everton have played out recently, 2.5 goals is great value at 9/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 2:41 pm). Leicester home form reads W2 L1 so far. So they haven’t been having problems in front of goal, but at the back, they have been. They have only earned the two clean sheets. Both teams to score is a top option for Leicester v Everton predictions and that is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 2:41 pm). Jamie Vardy has netted in back to back games following his return from suspension and is the outright favourite in the First Goalscorer market for this game. The Foxes have actually not shipped a goal in the second half of a home game this season. This should be a good end to end stuff.

Everton News and Form

It hasn’t all come together often enough for Everton this season, especially in attack, but they did shake things off to put a good 3-0 home win over Fulham on the board last weekend. They needed that too as they were on a four-match winless streak of form. The Toffees have gone W2 D3 L2 overall this season so consistency has been an issue for them. Out on the road, they are still searching their first league success of the season, having picked up two points from their three road games so far. Those were from draws at Wolves and Bournemouth. Both of those draws were 2-2 scorelines. The Toffees have yet to find their feet defensively and in the correct score market a Leicester 2-1 option does look great value at 9/1 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 2:41 pm). The Merseysiders have conceded exactly two goals in each of their three away games this season so there is a small trend there. They have just the one clean sheet this season home and away in the top flight. Last season they had some big troubles on their travels and that looks as if it is spilling over to this term a bit as well.

Leicester v Everton Head to Head

It was a home win for each in the Premier League last season and four of the last five Premier League meetings between them have actually produced a home win. Fixtures between Everton and Leicester have produced plenty of goals and all but two of the last nine have made it above the 2.5 goals line. The Toffees have failed to win any of their last nine league trips to Leicester.

Leicester to win: The Foxes have done pretty well in front of goal this season and they may well have enough on home soil to go out and collect another good win for themselves. They handled themselves well out at Newcastle last weekend and where are simply backing the home win in our Leicester v Everton prediction.

Newcastle v Leicester Predictions & Betting Odds – 29th September 2018

Newcastle
Newcastle v Leicester Betting Tips - Premier League, 29th September 3.00pm Newcastle are in desperate need of a win as they play host to Leicester on the weekend. The Magpies have only collected the two points this season for their efforts and they are stuck down in the bottom three, one of three sides yet to win a league match in the top flight his season. Leicester broke a losing spell with a win over Huddersfield last weekend. Read our predictions for Newcastle v Leicester.

Newcastle News and Form

Newcastle put their tough run of early fixtures behind them as they went to Crystal Palace last weekend. That was their chance to start getting some momentum going, but they could only pick up a 0-0 draw. That was just their second point of the season in a D2 L4 record that they have earned. They have lost all three of their home fixtures this season by a 2-1 scoreline but though weren’t easy games against Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal. But the trend of goals is there and we will look at over 2.5 goals for our Newcastle v Leicester predictions which is at 11/10 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 4:14 pm). Newcastle have been level at 0-0 in two of their three home games this term which is another trend to consider for your betting options. As of yet, the Magpies haven't looked a tremendous threat going forward. Joselu is their top scorer with two goals this season and both of those have come at home. In total, the Magpies have come up with just the four goals in their half-dozen league games played.

Leicester News and Form

After picking up back to back league defeats against Liverpool and Bournemouth, the Foxes put in a good response last weekend. They posted a strong 3-1 home win over the struggling Huddersfield. So Leicester have produced a W3 D3 record this term overall home and away. Their away form isn’t that hot as they have gone W1 L2 so far in their three road fixtures. But with that having been said, they have been scoring frequently and have netted five goals in three away games. There have been some good high scoring games involving Leicester this term, with five of their six played having gone above 2.5 goals and so that is why we are pushing for this one to go the same way. A Leicester 2-1 correct score is at 11/1 odds* (betting odds taken on September 25th, 2018 at 4:14 pm). Basically, the Foxes have proven this season that they carry a bigger attacking threat in the game than Newcastle are likely to do. Leicester have scored at least two goals in four of their last six games this season. They have netted exactly two in their last two road games as well. The area of their game which is letting them down is the defence, because the Foxes have picked up only one clean sheet this season in the top flight. That’s further reason to support both teams getting on the scoresheet.

Newcastle v Leicester Head to Head

There was an away win for each in last season’s Premier League meetings and both of those wins were by a one-goal margin. Leicester have generally bossed the recent head to head having won five of the last six meetings between the two of them (all competitions). Both teams have scored in just two of the last nine meetings in all competitions and Leicester have collected a win in their last two trips to St James Park in the top flight.

Newcastle v Leicester Predictions

Leicester to win: Simply because of the fact that the Foxes are able to produce a lot more going forward than Newcastle can, we are going to look at the value on the away win in this one. It's as straightforward as that.

Leicester v Huddersfield Predictions & Betting Odds – 22nd September 2018

Leicester
Leicester v Huddersfield Betting Tips - Premier League, 22nd September 3.00pm The Foxes got torn to shreds by Bournemouth last weekend and that is back to back defeats which they have suffered now. Another one here and the pressure will be on boss Claude Puel. Huddersfield though has been having a really difficult time of things this season having only picked up two points from their efforts. Read our predictions for Leicester v Huddersfield.

Leicester News and Form

Leicester are just treading that fine line between a dip in form and a slump. They are on back to back defeats at the moment and across the course of the season, they have only managed the one clean sheet. However, given the limited threat of the Terriers, it could be a good time to back the foxes to get one. Leicester to win to nil is at 11/8 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). So far on home soil, they have produced a win over Wolves and suffered a one-goal margin defeat against Liverpool. Leicester were torn apart 4-2 by Bournemouth last weekend and Leicester only put a bit of respectively on the board with two goals in the final two minutes of the fixture. One of those was a penalty. The Foxes have scored 75% of their goals in the second half of matches this season. So bearing all that in mind a draw/Leicester half-time/ full-time wager is at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.). Jamie Vardy is the first goalscorer favorite.

Huddersfield News and Form

Huddersfield are just going through some struggles at the moment as they have only posted the two points so far from drawn fixtures against Cardiff and Everton. They suffered a 1-0 home defeat against Crystal Palace last weekend and that first win of the season looks a long way away for them. Out on their travels, this season Huddersfield are W1 L1 and they did score exactly one goal in both of those games. But they have managed just the three goals in total this season across their five league games. This is likely to end under 2.5 goals and we can’t see the Terriers getting more than one goal in the game. If that. Both of the goals that they have scored this season have come in the first half of matches. Of the nine goals that Huddersfield have shipped this season, six of them have been in the 15 minute period before halftime. So that is a good period to watch for your live in-play betting. A Leicester 2-0 correct score option is at 6/1 odds for the game* (Betting Odds were taken from September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.).

Leicester v Huddersfield Head to Head

Leicester picked up four points from their matches against Huddersfield last season which included an easy 3-0 home win. The Foxes are unbeaten in their last four against Huddersfield in all competition and undefeated in seven league games against them. Leicester have won their last five home games against the Terriers.

Leicester v Huddersfield Betting Odds*

Leicester 4/7 Draw 3/1 Huddersfield 9/2 * (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on September 18th, 2018 at 6:35 p.m.)

Leicester to win: We have to back the Foxes to come through in our Leicester v Huddersfield predictions. They have at least got some scoring power in them and the Terriers are sorely lacking in that department. Home win.

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).

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 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.
