The Blues collected a good win out at Brighton last weekend to build on the back of their win over Manchester City. So they are in a good top-four position heading into the weekend and will be keen to land three more home points. Leicester have been out of sorts for a while as wins have been eluding them. Read our Chelsea v Leicester betting tips for more.

The Blues have earned back to back Premier League wins now after a 2-1 win at Brighton last weekend. That followed up not their huge home success against Manchester City when Chelsea beat the reigning champions 2-0. Chelsea have not conceded in any of their last three league games at the Bridge and their overall league home form this season is W6 D3 L0. Across their nine home games, this term Chelsea have scored 19 and have conceded just the seven. They have taken ac elan sheet in 44% of their games at the Bridge in fact. Chelsea have scored in both halves of 67% of their home games
44% of their home games have ended with exactly two goals scored. Each of Chelsea’s last three league outing on home soil have ended under 2.5 goals. In none of their home games in the EPL this term have the Blues found themselves trailing at the midway point of the game. Only Man City and Liverpool have better home records than Chelsea this term. On top of that, there are just the two sides have conceded fewer league goals than the Blues have in the EPL. After his nine-match scoreless streak of league form, Eden Hazard was back among the goals last weekend for Chelsea.
There was a 0-0 draw between them at Stamford Bridge in last season’s EPL
Chelsea have won five of the last six meetings in all competitions
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five classes
Leicester have failed to win any of their last eight trips to Stamford Bridge
The Foxes suffered a 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace last weekend to make it back to back league defeats for them. They failed to hit the back of the net in either of those two losses two. It is just the two wins that Leicester have picked up in their last ten league games now so they are struggling a bit really. Away from home this season the Foxes are W3 D2 L4 and they have lost all three away games against sides currently in the top half of the table. In their away games, the Foxes have produced 11 goals and have conceded 13.
Less than half of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. Each of Leicester’s last eight games in the top flight (home and away combined) have ended under the 2.5 goal line so there’s a strong trend. The Foxes have scored in all but one of their away games this season though and 82% of their away goals scored have been in the second half of matches. Leicester have conceded 62% of their away goals in the first period of games and they have been trailing by a 1-0 scoreline at half time in four of their road games.
Because Leicester have been struggling to find their winning touch we are going to predict the home win in this one. The Blues have the strong form at the Bridge behind them enough to warrant looking at them winning to nil.

Both Leicester and Crystal Palace suffered defeats last weekend in the top flight. The difference is, is that the Foxes are sitting a lot more comfortable than the Eagles are in the standings. The Foxes start up in the top half of the table while Palace are just hovering outside of the drop zone. Read our Crystal Palace v Leicester betting tips for more.
Crystal Palace 29/20
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 8:43 p.m.)
Crystal Palace suffered yet another league defeat last weekend, going down 3-2 at West Ham. That is back to back league losses for them now. Palace have taken just the one win in their last eleven league outings now (D3 L7) and just can’t get that precious momentum going at all. It has been a lean season from them at home where they have taken just a W1 D2 L4 record this season. They did have a success in their last home fixture though as they took a 2-0 home win over Burnley. That took their tally of home goals in this season’s EPL top four
The Eagles have conceded eight goals in their seven home games so it has not been a defensive disaster from them. They have earned a clean sheet in 29% of their home games. The trouble is that they have not scored in 71% of their home games in the EPL this term. Crystal Palace have only been trailing at half time once at home this season (W2 D4). Again the downside to that positive is that the Eagles have shipped 88% of their home goals in the second half of games. Palace have opened the scoring in two of their home games and have the joint-worst home record this season.
Palace won both meetings against Leicester last season to nil
The Eagles are unbeaten in their last three EPL games against Leicester (W2 D1)
Palace are W1 D1 L1 in their last three at home against the Foxes
Both teams have scored in just two of the last eight meetings
Palace are W5 D1 L2 in their eight against Leicester
The Foxes were brushed aside at the King Power last weekend in a 2-0 loss against Spurs last weekend. That ended a good run of six unbeaten that the Foxes were on in the EPL. They have only claimed the two wins in their last eight league outings though in a W2 D4 L2 record. On their top-flight travels, this term Leicester have posted a W3 D2 L3 record. They have gone undefeated in their last three out on the road as well. They have gone undefeated in their five away games against sides currently in the bottom half of the table (W3 D2)
Leicester have scored in all of their away games this season so that is a big positive for them. 50% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals. In exactly two-thirds of Leicester away games this season, both teams have scored. Their Foxes though have been leading in just one of their away games this season at the end of the first half. Of Leicester’s eleven away goals, nine of them have been scored in the second half of games. They have also conceded the opening goal in five of their eight road fixtures this term. Each of their last seven games home and away have ended under 2.5 goals.
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on December 11th, 2018 at 9:19 pm)
Crystal Palace got a good win over Burnley in their last home game and our prediction is that they can follow it up with another success here. Leicester have been unspectacular on their travels this season and could be in danger.
13th December 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Leicester will be looking to make it back to back home wins over Spurs in the Premier League after a good success last season. Their home form hasn’t been that hot though lately and they have struggled against the top sides this term. The Lilywhites will be looking to improve upon their already strong away record. Read our Leicester v Tottenham betting tips for more.
Tottenham even money
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on December 4th, 2018 at 7:41 p.m.)
Leicester fought back to earn a 1-1 draw at Fulham in midweek at Craven Cottage. That leaves them on a good six-match unbeaten streak of form in the top flight with a W2 D4 record. Their scoring output hasn’t been great lately though. In just one of their last eight games have Leicester managed to score more than one goal in a game. Overall this season at the King Power, Leicester are W3 D2 L2 and they are on an unbeaten streak of three there (W1 D2). In their last home game, they came away with three points from a 2-0 win over Watford. James Maddison has scored in back to back league games for the Foxes
Leicester have totalled 10 home goals this season, conceding 6. Less than half of the league fixtures at the King Power this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Each of Leicester’s last three home fixtures have gone under the goal line. Their last six home and away combined have failed to hit 2.5 goals. So there is a pretty big trend going on with them there. Leicester have shipped 83%of their home goals in the first half of games. They have conceded just one second-half goal at home this season in the top flight. The Foxes are W2 D3 L2 at half time at home this season.
The Foxes took a 2-1 win in last season’s corresponding fixture
Things are even at two wins each and two draws in the last six EPL meetings
Each of the last three EPL meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Spurs are W3 D1 L1 in their last five EPL visits to the King Power
Both teams have scored in 15 of the last 17 meetings in all competitions
Spurs bounced back from their loss at Arsenal last weekend by beating Southampton 3-1 in midweek. That leaves them with an overall positive return of W4 L1 in their last five league outings. Out on the road, Spurs have produced a pretty strong W7 D0 L2 record this campaign. They have claimed a victory in five of their last six on the road as well. All but two of Tottenham’s road wins this season have been by a one-goal margin. Harry Kane is on a three-match Premier League scoring streak. They have produced a total of 17 away goals, conceding the ten. Only three teams have conceded fewer goals than Spurs have this season.
Tottenham have come up with a clean sheet in 44% of their away games. 67% of Tottenham’s road games have gone over 2.5 goals this term. In six of their nine games out on the road, this season Tottenham have been winning at half time in six of those. They are currently eight points better off than they were at this stage last season. All but two for the away goals that Spurs have conceded have been in the second half of fixtures. Spurs have opened the scoring in all but one away game this term. Spurs currently boast the best away record in the top flight, (albeit having played more away games than anyone else).
We are going with the away win in our Leicester v Tottenham predictions. Leicester haven’t delivered against the top sides and Tottenham have been so good out on the road for most of the season. Away win.

Fulham left Stamford Bridge in the West London derby against Chelsea on the weekend empty-handed. They are two points adrift at the foot of the table heading into the midweek action. Leicester are now five unbeaten in the top flight after banking a very good home win over Watford on the weekend. Read our Fulham v Leicester betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:18 p.m.)
Fulham suffered a 2-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge against Chelsea on the weekend in a West London derby. They were spirited but lacked the final touches of quality at both ends of the pitch. That loss leaves them with just a W1 D2 L8 record in their last eleven league games. They did bank maximum points in their last home game though, beating Southampton 3-2. Over 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on December 3rd, 2018 at 4:01 pm).
The Cottagers have conceded exactly two goals in each of their last three league games. They are still on the hunt for their first clean sheet of the season (home and away combined). They have posted a W2 D1 L3 record at Craven Cottage so far this term. They have tallied the nine goals in their six home games and of the struggles at the wrong end of the table, do look as if they have the scoring power to get themselves clear.
Their defence is a problem though. They have conceded an average of 2.5 goals per home game and 50% of league games at Craven Cottage this term have gone over 2.5 goals. Both teams to score is at 8/13 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). Fulham haven’t taken a draw in any of their eight Premier League games. They have opened the scoring in just one home fixture so far which was in their August win over Burnley.
The last time they met was in the 2013 League Cup, the Foxes winning 4-3
They were together in the 2003/04 Premier League season
Fulham have won the last two league meetings by a 2-0 scoreline
Fulham are W2 D2 in four previous EPL games against Leicester
Both teams have scored in each of the last four meetings
It was a good 2-0 home win for Leicester over Watford on the weekend, with James Madison netting a brilliant second for them. So that result moved Leicester to W2 D3 in their last five games. Out on their travels, they are W3 D1 L3 this season so they are hit and miss. They are unbeaten in their last two away games, their last being a 1-1 draw at Brighton. Leicester are undefeated away from home against sides currently beneath them in the table and they have come up with ten goals on the road this season. They have shipped eleven in seven away games and 29% of their road games have gone above 3.5 goals.
Leicester have conceded in both of half of 43% of their away games, but they have tallied a clean sheet in 29% of road games. In the correct score market a Leicester 2-1 success is at 9/1 odds* (betting odds taken on November 3rd, 2018 at 2:31 pm). They have found the back of the net in each of their away games this season so that is another positive for them. Of the ten away goals that they have scored this season, eight of them have been after the halftime break.
The Cottagers are still finding their way under Claudio Ranieri who changed systems and personnel in his second game in charge. Leicester are the more settled of the two and can find the cracks in Fulham’s defence.

Leicester v Watford Premier League Preview, 1st December 3.00pm
Leicester have put together a decent four-match unbeaten streak of form in the league after salvaging a point at Brighton last weekend. It’s back to the King Power this weekend as they get themselves involved in a mid-table clash against Watford. The Hornet’s lost heavily at home against Liverpool last weekend and will be defending a two-point lead over the Foxes in the standings. Read our Leicester v Watford betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 27th, 2018 at 4:55 p.m.)
The Foxes got themselves a point last weekend as Jamie Vardy struck a late penalty at Brighton for a 1-1 draw. That is back to back league draws that the Foxes have picked up now. They have actually drawn three of their last four now (W1). They have had a mixed season on home soil at the King Power with a W2 D2 L2 record having been produced there so far. They have also drawn their last two on home soil being held by Burnley and West Ham, neither being the toughest of opposition that they will face this term. Both teams to score is at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 5:59 pm). The Foxes have lost their two home games this season against sides currently above them in the table.
They have come up with the eight goals across their six home games, scoring in all but one of their fixtures at the King Power (0-0 v Burnley in their last home game). Defensively they haven’t been bad either with just six goals against and a clean sheet in a third of their home games. 50% of their home games have made it over 2.5 goals this season but each of their last four home and away combined have finished under the goal line. Under 2.5 goals is at 4/5 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 5:59 pm) to see that streak extended. Of the goals that the Foxes have conceded at the King Power this season, 83% of them have come up in the first half of matches. That equates to Leicester having been winning at halftime just once at home this season.
Leicester won this corresponding fixture last season 2-0
The Foxes are on a three-match home winning streak against Watford
Watford are winless in four visits to the King Power
From the six previous EPL meetings, Leicester are W4 L2 against Watford
Three of the last four meetings have gone over 2.5 goals
Watford had a bad day at the office in terms of a 3-0 home loss against Liverpool last time out. They did actually battle well in the game and looked competitive. But they are just D1 L2 in their last three games now and out on the road they have produced a mixed W2 D2 L2 record so far this season. Home and away combined they have played five games this season against sides currently in the top ten and the Hornets have lost four of those (W1). Another indicator that this could be a low-scoring game is that just 17% of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals
Watford have produced seven away goals in their six games while they have conceded an average of exactly one goal per away game on their travels. They have found the back of the net in just half of their last four away games too. Two-thirds of the goals that Watford have conceded away from home in the Premier League this season have come in the second half of games. The 1-1 draw is the shorted priced option in the correct score market at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 27th, 2018 at 5:59 pm). Each of their last five away games have ended under 2.5 goals. Watford have been trailing at halftime just once on their travels this season.
The draw appeals for Leicester v Watford betting tips as they look to be evenly matched. Leicester have been missing that winning touch lately and Watford aren’t so bad that they can’t handle themselves in an away game like this. Draw.

Brighton will be looking to pick up the pace against after having suffered back to back league defeats before the international break. They welcome Leicester on the weekend and the Foxes have steadied themselves with a three-match undefeated run of form in the top flight. Read our Brighton v Leicester betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 20th, 2018 at 7:32 p.m.)
The Seagulls suffered back to back defeats against Everton and Cardiff just before the international break, snapping a good three-match winning streak that they were on. They have managed to score in each of their last five league games though. They have netted exactly one in each of those games. Both teams to score is at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 7:25 pm) for this fixture.
Brighton have produced a W3 D1 L1 record at the Amex this season, scoring eight goals across those games. They have also banked a clean sheet in 40% of their home games and their last two there have produced 1-0 wins for them. Although it’s been by fine margins, it hasn’t been bad from the Seagulls at all. A Brighton 1-0 correct score is at 15/2 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 7:25 pm)
Leicester won both meetings with Brighton 2-0 last season
Brighton are W3 D1 L1 in their last five home games against the Foxes
Both teams have scored in just three of the last nine meetings
The Foxes earned a 0-0 draw at home against Burnley in their last league fixture and that leaves them on a three-match undefeated streak of form (W1 D2). They have banked back to back clean sheets as well and under 2.5 goals is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 7:25 pm). The Foxes have produced a W3 D0 L3 record on their travels this season and they haven’t lost a game, home or away, against a side currently in the bottom half of the table.
Leicester have scored nine goals in their six away games and 67% of their road games have gone over 2.5 goals. They have scored in all of their away games this season and their last two road wins have been with a clean sheet. 78% of the goals that they have scored on the road have been in the second half of games. A half-time draw is a great proposition at even money odds* (betting odds taken on November 20th, 2018 at 7:25 pm).
This could well be a good even game. The temptation is there though to back the Seagulls to get back to winning ways though. They have produced some decent stuff at home and their recent setbacks have only happened on the road. Home win.
21st November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Foxes bagged themselves a win last weekend out at Cardiff in their first game since the big tragedy which befell the club. That leaves them up in mid-table. Burnley are struggling badly for form at the moment and are looking to somehow pull themselves out of a three-match losing slump. Read our Leicester v Burnley betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on November 5th, 2018 at 8:54 p.m.)
The Foxes came out on top in a 1-0 win at Cardiff last weekend. That moved them on to a W5 D1 L5 record for the season. The Foxes are W2 D1 L2 this season in the top flight and 60% of their games have gone over 2.5 goals. This one to go the same way is at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm). The Foxes have produced eight goals in their five home games this season in the top flight. There has been just the one home clean sheet from Leicester this term and none of those have come in their last four at the King Power. As a huge positive Leicester have a goal in all of their home this season.
The anytime goalscorer market favourite is Jamie Vardy at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm). He is without a goal in any of Leicester’s last four though. The Foxes have produced a goal in each and every one of their league outings this season. Of the goals which Leicester have conceded on home soil this season, 83% of them have come in the first half of games. The half time draw could well appeal in the game as Leicester have only been leading on home soil at the half time break once this season.
The two traded home wins in the EPL last season
Each of the last four games between them have ended in a home win
From the six previous EPL meetings, Leicester are W3 D1 L2 ahead
Both teams have scored in just one of the last five EPL meetings
The Foxes are W2 D1 at home against Burnley in the Premier League
The Clarets have been going through a rough spell as their defence keeps shipping goals. They are on a three-match losing streak at the moment in the top flight following a 4-2 loss out at West Ham last weekend. That was the third match in a row in which they had conceded at least four goals as well. That’s a total of thirteen goals in their last three games which they have conceded. As they did at least get on the scoresheet last weekend and both teams to score may be worth a look at even money odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm).
Burnley have won just once on their travels this season is W1 D1 L4 record away from Turf Moor. They have yet to earn a clean sheet on their travels and in total, they have conceded fifteen goals in their five games. That’s an average of 2.5 goals per game against them on their travels. 67% of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Ten of the fifteen goals which they have conceded away from home this season have cropped up in the second half of their games. In none of their away games this season have Burnley been leading at half time, but they have been level in four of the six. The half time draw is at 13/10 odds* (betting odds taken on November 7th, 2018 at 7:32 pm).
Burnley are looking more and more vulnerable at the back which may not bode well for them this weekend. It’s a difficult time for Leicester at the moment, but they can dig deep and get another three points on the board.
8th November 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Foxes put in a spirited display against Arsenal last time out but slipped to a defeat which leaves them with back to back league losses. West Ham are in the exact same boat so this is a good opportunity for one of them to snap out of their current drop in form. Read our Leicester v West Ham betting tips for more.
West Ham 23/10
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 25th, 2018 at 4:36 p.m.)
The Foxes suffered a 3-1 defeat on Monday against Arsenal, despite getting the opening goal of the game. So that defeat against the Gunners has left them with back to back losses. The Foxes are W2 L2 in their last four at the King Power, having alternated between a win and a loss there. The foxes have come up with at least one goal in all of their games in the top flight this, netting at least two goals in four of their last five fixtures. With a chance of a clean sheet against a depleted Hammers side 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)
The Foxes are missing defender Wes Morgan through suspension for the game while the main striker Jamie Vardy is a doubt for the game. Even though there have been over 2.5 goals in six of Leicester’s last seven league games we are going to go with both teams NOT to score at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:57 pm). Again the visiting West Ham are out of form and won’t be at full strength. Leicester have scored only one opening goal at home this season on home soil, while they have conceded 80% of their home goals in the first half of matches this season.
West Ham were W1 D1 against Leicester last season
The Foxes are W4 D2 L1 in their last seven against the Hammers
Leicester 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 had that terrible start to the start, had a brief moment of hope and optimism and now it’s back to gloom and doom. They have lost their last two games and the injury list is growing for them. They have gone back to back 1-0 defeats against Brighton and Spurs in their current form. West Ham are only W1 L3 this season out on their travels 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. 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.
A Leicester 1-0 correct score is at 7/1 but a bigger Leicester 2-1 scoreline is at 17/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:57 pm). West Ham have actually failed to score in five of their nine league games so far this season. Still, even with that in mind, 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 and he is a 2/1 anytime goalscorer option for the game* (betting odds taken on October 25th, 2018 at 4:57 pm). The Hammers have lost striker Andriy Yarmolenko who 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.
Even though Leicester remain unconvincing at the back, they pack a lot more of a punch going forward than West Ham do. With home advantage as well, the Foxes should have enough to collect the three points.
26th October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
The Gunners are in a hot streak of form in the Premier League as they are on a six-match winning streak. It’s been a fantastic form from them and they will be favourites on home soil as they take on a Leicester side who have been struggling defensively. That having been said the Foxes have been scoring well. Read our Arsenal v Leicester betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 15th, 2018 at 7:52 p.m.)
The Gunners have proven to be the form team of the Premier League over the last half a dozen games. That’s because they have won six from six. So they are moving along very nicely and the goals are flowing from them well. They have scored at least two goals in each of their last seven games played. Just before the international break, they secured a big 5-1 win out at Fulham. So more likely than not they will get their chances in this one and over 2.5 goals is a solid place to start at 4/9 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). Five of their eight league games have ended that way.
Arsenal have won each of their last three home games by a two-goal margin which is a trend to consider. You can back them at 7/2 to win by that margin in this fixture* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm). There is another trend running with them as well and that is that they have been drawing at half time and winning at full time in each of their last six games. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang was only no the bench against Fulham because of fitness but is likely to get back to the starting line up. There are doubts over Danny Welbeck and Aaron Ramsey.
Leicester are hit and miss most of the time and they have posted a W4 L4 record so far. They suffered a 2-1 home loss against Everton just before the international break. Their away form is mixed at W2 L2 so it’s hard to get a read on them. A clear positive is that they have been scoring well and have netted in all of their games played this season. So both teams to score at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken on October 18th, 2018 at 4:01 pm) makes decent sense to have a look at. Jamie Vardy has two goals in his last three games for the Foxes and is pretty consistent and reliable as a goalscorer option.
The Foxes have produced seven goals away from home this season, three of their four games ending over 2.5 goals. They have two clean sheets under their belt this season, one of them on the road. There has been a consistent trend with them having scored at least two goals in each of their last three away games. 86% of their away goals have happened in the second half of matches. The Foxes will be missing Wes Morgan through suspension while Demarai Gray and Matty James will also be out on the sidelines.
There were great games between the two last season with eleven goals across the two meetings, which produced a home win. The Gunners 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. Do Leicester have not avoided a defeat at Leicester in the Premier League. Arsenal have won six of the last seven Premier League meetings home and away games the Foxes (D1).
This could be a good competitive open game, but we have to back Arsenal who have been playing some really positive stuff. The defence of Leicester is still just a bit unreliable to be able to hold out. Home win & both teams to score.
18th October 2018 / lee - Category: Premiership Betting
Everton eased themselves to a good win last weekend as they tore Fulham apart at Goodison Park. That kept them holding steady in the middle of the table. Leicester have won four of their last six games and see to have plenty of goals in them this season and this could be a fairly evenly matched contest. Read our Leicester v Everton betting tips for more.
* (Betting Odds were taken from bet365 on October 2nd, 2018 at 8:23 p.m.)
The Foxes have back to back league wins under their belt and hold a W4 L3 record from their seven games played this season. The feature of their games has been them scoring very well and they are almost at an average of two per game. They have netted at least two goals in all but two matches this season. Immediately for this one, given the recent history between the two as well recently, over 2.5 goals is great value at 9/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 2:41 pm). Leicester’s home form reads W2 L1 so far.
While they have been scoring freely, they have struggled a bit at the back with only the two clean sheets. So both teams to score is a top option for Leicester v Everton betting tips and that is at 7/10 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 2:41 pm). Jamie Vardy has scored in each of his last two games and is naturally running at the head of both the Anytime and First goalscorer markets. Leicester have not conceded a second-half goal on home soil this season and this has the potential of being a fantastic, open and competitive game.
Everton haven’t quick clicked this season and after some attacking misfires, they did put things together last weekend to hammer Fulham 3-0 at Goodison Park. That was just the result they needed too as it snapped a four-match winless streak they were on. Everton are just W2 D3 L2 for the season so haven’t been consistent at all. Away from home, they are still looking for their first league win of the season, having collected two points only from their three games in draws out at Wolves and Bournemouth.
Both of those draws were 2-2 affairs. Everton have been pretty slack at the back this season 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 Toffees have conceded exactly two goals in each of their three away games this season so there is a small trend there. The Toffees were pretty dreadful away from home last season with just three wins and it’s not going great for them this time. Overall home and away Everton have just one clean sheet this season.
These two traded home wins last season and four of the last five Premier League meetings between them have actually produced a home win. There have been plenty of goals between these two recently with seven of the last nine all going over 2.5 goals. Leicester are unbeaten in their last nine league home games against the Toffees.
We are going to back the home win in our Leicester v Everton betting tips. The Everton defence hasn’t look so great this season that it could survive against what has been a pretty free-scoring Leicester side. Home win.
