Leicester City take on Watford at the King Power Stadium hoping to overtake the Hornets in the league table. The two teams are separated by two points with Watford enjoying the better position owing to a much more consistent run this season. Yet, Leicester have been on a decent run of form of late and this has helped them move into the top half. Follow all our predictions, free bets, football bets and betting tips below.
Betting Tips for the game
Leicester were able to salvage a point against Brighton at the AMEX Stadium after a 1-1 draw. Jamie Vardy came up with the late equaliser even when the team played with 10-men for more than 70 minutes. The midweek match witnessed Leicester City qualify for the League Cup quarter-finals after knocking out Southampton on penalties.
Watford went three games without a win after Liverpool claimed at 3-0 win at Vicarage Road last weekend. However, this was a score that completely flattered Liverpool as Watford had decent chances in the match.
Leicester and Watford played out a 2-0 win in the last meeting at the King Power Stadium. This was also the recent game between the two clubs. Our betting tips and predictions expect a draw.

Watford and Leicester have not been in a great moment to go in search of a victory. Leicester’s narrow success over Cardiff City a few weeks ago is the only win – in regular time – for the Foxes over the last seven games. The lack of an offensive threat makes Leicester not a good choice to back for a victory. Meanwhile, Watford are not a great choice when it comes to backing in away matches with the team only picking up two wins on the road this season. Our preview would go with a draw.

Leicester City win odds: 2.20
Watford win odds: 3.30
Correct Score odds
Leicester and Watford find themselves going through a poor run of form as a result of not making a great impact going forward. The two teams have come up with five and six goals respectively in the last six matches. Leicester may struggle even more due to the absence of James Maddison. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-1 draw.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
The recent matches involving Leicester have been tight and cagey. It is to be expected of a team managed by Claude Puel, who is not known for being adventurous as a manager. Watford might have come up with a couple of goals if the game was at Vicarage Road, but even the Hornets have suffered a dip in scoring form. Our total goals prediction would go with under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Jamie Vardy is the top scorer for Leicester as expected. The England international came with the equaliser in the win over Brighton. This was the 31-year-old’s first goal in his last six games for the club. Still, he is the biggest threat for Leicester and our first goalscorer prediction would back Vardy.
