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.

Leicester v West Ham Betting Odds*

Leicester 6/5, West Ham 11/5, Draw 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 8:08 p.m. on April 30th, 2018)

Leicester v West Ham Predictions

Leicester to win: Things haven’t been going smoothly for Leicester but West Ham’s defence is a shambles at the best of times. The Foxes should be able to rally themselves to three points in what is their penultimate home game of the season.

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.

Crystal Palace v Leicester Betting Odds*

Crystal Palace 21/20, Draw 5/2, Leicester 5/2* (Betting Odds taken at 6:25 p.m. on April 23rd, 2018)

Crystal Palace v Leicester Predictions

Crystal Palace to win: The Eagles are playing decent enough stuff, there is plenty of energy and commitment from them and that can see them to three points in his one. Leicester just haven’t quite been at their best recently and unlike the Eagles, have nothing to play for.

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 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.
