Leicester v Southampton Premier League Preview, 19th April 7.45pm
The Foxes suffered a defeat out at Burnley on the weekend to leave them with back to back league losses. So it’s not quite happening for them at the moment. They could heap some more relegation pressure on Southampton in midweek though. The Saints blew a 2-0 lead against Chelsea on the weekend to still end up losing and are now five points from safety.
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 News and Form
Leicester have lost back to back league games which was after winning back to back games which was after drawing back to back games. So they are W2 D2 L2 in their last six. They have failed to win any of their last four at home (D3 L1) so are due for a win at the King Power. The Foxes are W6 D5 L5 for the season at home in the Premier League and they are on a seven-match scoring streak there so should be able to come up with something. They have netted in each of their last ten games home and away combined. 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 have conceded in each of their last four on home soil so will be a little vulnerable there. The Foxes have come up with 22 goals in their 16 home games this season and only 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 favourite* (Betting Odds taken at 10:12 p.m. on April 15th, 2018) with Paddy Power.
Southampton News and Form
That will have been a rough defeat for Southampton on the weekend, losing a 2-0 lead to come away empty-handed against Chelsea. This is now a game which they can’t afford to lose. They have lost their last four league games on the bounce and they are winless in seven (D2 L5). It has been a poor defensive sequence with them having 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. They badly need something out of this but are on a three-match losing streak away from St Mary’s and have won just twice not their travels all season (D6 L8). So it’s poor from them and they have averaged lees than a goal per game away from home so far, conceded at 1.8 on average per game. They have conceded in each of their last six away from St Marys and have in total, managed a clean sheet in just 19% of their road games. At this stage, they just have to have a go and throw everything at their remaining games. There really isn’t the option anymore of them being conservative. 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).
