Leicester City vs Crystal Palace – Predictions & Football Betting Tips
Leicester City step into the match against Crystal Palace at King Power Stadium with great hope of ending their winless streak this weekend. Leicester City have slid down into the 12th place following a very bad run of results, while a significant jump in form has seen Crystal Palace move just behind Leicester City in the league table, although five points separate the two teams. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Leicester City were beaten soundly 3-1 by Tottenham at the Wembley Stadium in yet another disappointing result for Claude Puel’s men. Leicester have lost four out of the recent five matches in the league.
Crystal Palace continued their impressive form by picking up a 1-1 draw with West Ham, although the Eagles deserved the full complement of three points for the performance. The club went on to beat Doncaster Rovers – and avoid a huge FA Cup upset – to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
The reverse fixture produced a 1-0 win for Crystal Palace against Leicester at Selhurst Park. Leicester’s last home game against Crystal Palace will have memories of the 3-0 defeat and the red card to Wilfred Ndidi. Our betting tips and predictions expect a victory for Palace.

Leicester City have been on a significant downturn over the last few weeks and Crystal Palace will have the momentum following a return of three wins and a draw over the last five games. Roy Hodgson’s men have been playing much better of late. Even if Palace have not been clinical, they should receive multiple opportunities come their way. Leicester, meanwhile, are without a home win since beating Manchester City a couple of months ago. Our preview would pick a win for Palace, who have beaten Leicester in three consecutive games.

Leicester City vs Crystal Palace draw odds: 3.30
Leicester City win odds: 2.15
Correct Score odds
Crystal Palace have been able to score nine goals without reply against Leicester in the last three matches. Leicester’s last goal against Crystal Palace was almost 2 years ago and this drought is likely to end with the Foxes scoring on a consistent basis this season. Palace, though, have been quite slick in recent weeks and our correct score prediction would go with a 2-1 win for the Eagles.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though the reverse fixture produced a low scoring game, it has certainly not been the case over the past with Palace and Leicester being able to score goals for fun in this fixture. Even with Claude Puel trying to go defensive, the threat from Palace and their good performances will lead to over 2.5 goals, according to our total goals prediction.

First Goalscorer odds
Wilfred Zaha has hit a scoring touch over the last couple of games. The 26-year-old has been able to take his season’s league tally to five goals after the equaliser against West Ham. Zaha has been able to score in his last two games for Palace, and he scored in both games against Leicester last season. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Wilfred Zaha.
