Burnley vs Leicester City – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
Burnley look to once again overcome a losing sequence when they take on Leicester City at the Turf Moor this weekend. The Clarets have done enough to remain out of the bottom three over the last few weeks, but there is once again in danger of being sucked back into the relegation zone with Cardiff only two points behind. Leicester City are back in the top half of the table as the presence of Brendan Rodgers continues to inspire the players. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.

Leicester have produced some much-improved performances since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers. There is more purpose to the team going forward as they are no longer just interested in keeping possession of the ball. Burnley have been a confidence-oriented team over the last few months. The way Burnley react after the three consecutive losses will be interesting, but Leicester are expected to capitalise on the home team’s recent dip by making a strong start. Brendan Rodgers’ teams do tend to start on the front foot and our preview would go with a stalemate.

Burnley win odds: 2.90
Leicester City win odds: 2.37
Correct Score odds
Leicester City have been able to come up with a strong attacking performance since the arrival of Rodgers and Jamie Vardy has been able to immediately profit from the change in tactics, as he has been able to score three times in the last two games. Burnley have shipped seven goals in the last two matches and Dyche will be targeting an improvement on this front. Our correct score prediction would opt for a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Leicester have been performing very well going forward under Rodgers, but Burnley will make a conscious effort to improve their defence after shipping in plenty of goals of late. The Clarets have been unable to register a clean sheet in any of the last eight matches. Our total goals prediction went back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Burnley and Leicester have not been great at breaking the deadlock in recent weeks in home and away matches respectively. However, the form enjoyed by Jamie Vardy since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers is a significant factor, as Burnley do not have one single focal point – it is spread between Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Jamie Vardy.
