Leicester City continue to show tremendous improvement in the Brendan Rodgers and they take on Bournemouth at the King Power Stadium this weekend. The Foxes have been pushing for a top 10 position over the last few weeks and they are just three points away from the European qualification places. Bournemouth are not far away from sneaking back into the top 10 with the club only three points behind Leicester – but with a highly inferior goal difference.

Betting Tips for the game
Leicester City snatched a late win over Burnley – even when playing with 10 men – in order to pick up a third win in four matches. Rodgers has lost just one game since taking over from Claude Puel.
Bournemouth were only able to pick up a 2-2 draw against Newcastle at home, as Matt Ritchie came up with a late equaliser to cancel out Joshua King’s brace. Bournemouth are unbeaten in two league outings.
The Cherries produced a surprise performance to beat Bournemouth 4-2 at the Vitality Stadium back in September. This was the first game in four to produce a winner whenever these two teams have come up against each other, as the last game between these two clubs at the King Power Stadium produced a 1-1 draw. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Leicester.

There is a great deal of purpose surrounding Leicester since the arrival of Brendan Rodgers, who has overseen just one disappointing result in his last four games. Even though Bournemouth have also been playing well of late, they are little match for the intelligence and presence given out by Leicester in recent games. The Foxes have been able to make the most of players like James Maddison to great effect. Our preview would pick a win for Leicester.

Leicester City vs Bournemouth draw odds: 3.60
Bournemouth win odds: 4.33
Correct Score odds
Leicester have been able to get just four goals in the last six matches against Bournemouth but there is likely to be a change in this trend. Rodgers has been able to get the front three of Leicester to play extremely well. Eddie Howe will look to stop Maddison from influencing the game, but the England international is too intelligent in the number 10 role. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for Leicester.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
This match has both teams having enough potential to come up with goals, but Leicester have the momentum to use this form and pick up a victory. The Foxes may have been defensive-minded under Claude Puel, but the outfit under Rodgers is showing signs of coming out. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jamie Vardy failed to score in the win over Leicester but he has been full of goals under Rodgers’ regime. The England international has been able to get 12 goals for the campaign and he certainly has the potential to come up with the opening goal for a remarkable ninth time in these games. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Vardy.
