Leicester City FC vs Fulham FC – Betting Tips for the game
Leicester City were at the end of a disappointing 2-1 defeat against Watford in Rodgers’ first match in charge. This was the fourth defeat in five matches for the Foxes, who played in a different style against Watford.
Fulham came up with a much-improved performance in the London derby against Chelsea but still came away with a 2-1 defeat in the first match since the departure of Claudio Ranieri. Scott Parker, who has been placed on an interim basis, was happy with the improved performance.
The reverse fixture produced a 1-1 draw while Leicester City’s last home game against Fulham was back in 2013 in the League Cup. Our betting tips and predictions expect a win for Leicester.
Leicester City FC vs Fulham FC – Match odds
Fulham have been much improved at the back but the club cannot afford to drop any more points in the division if they are to avoid relegation. The fear of going down is starting to get real. Even though Leicester lost against Watford, it was down to a couple of bad mistakes. Rodgers will demand more intensity from his players in his first home game. Fulham are especially bad when it comes to travels and they are the only team in the division without an away victory. Our preview would go with a win for the hosts.
Leicester City vs Fulham draw odds: 4.00
Fulham win odds: 5.75
Leicester City FC vs Fulham FC – Correct Score odds
Leicester are expected to play a brilliant offensive football under Rodgers. Even though the club scored only one goal in the first game under the former Liverpool boss, things are expected to improve with Jamie Vardy already being focussed more by his teammates. Fulham also have a decent offensive threat but they are also quite poor at the back. Our correct score prediction would opt for a Leicester 2-1 win.
Leicester City FC vs Fulham FC – Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though the reverse fixture produced a 1-1 draw, this happens to be the only example of a low scoring game between Fulham and Leicester in the last decade. Even though meetings between these two teams have been rare, Fulham’s defensive run has been very poor that our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals.
Leicester City FC vs Fulham FC – First Goalscorer odds
Jamie Vardy was on the scoresheet against Watford and he has now scored in both games since Brendan Rodgers was announced as the replacement for Claude Puel. It may be a sign of things to come with Rodgers likely to be aware of Vardy’s immense finishing skills. The 32-year-old forward is also the only Leicester player to get to double figures in the league this season. Our first goalscorer prediction would pick Jamie Vardy.
