Betting Tips for the game

This time around, it may be difficult to prevent Leicester from picking up five successive wins for the first time this season. Brendan Rodgers has made Leicester very effective going forward and the players are once again experiencing a bout of confidence. Our preview would go with a win for Leicester.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The foxes have been able to score in the last eight games without fail. Crucially, the club are playing a style of football that is very attractive compared to the days under Claude Puel, who was very defensive. Brendan Rodgers has unleashed the team but a three-pronged attack that tries to capitalise on the qualities of Vardy and Maddison. Our total goals prediction would go with over 2.5 goals even if the visitors do not score.

First Goalscorer odds
Jamie Vardy has been unable to come up with the opening goal in none of the last four victories for Leicester. James Maddison, though, has been a creative force for the team even if he has managed the opening goal once in this run. However, it is difficult to look past Vardy, who is being found with more urgency by Leicester teammates. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Jamie Vardy.
