West Ham are at a price of 3.75 to win this match. Even though the Hammers picked up a victory at the King Power Stadium only back in May, they make the trip low on confidence after back-to-back losses. Even though Leicester also find themselves in a similar run, they have performed well in those two defeats against Everton and Arsenal. Further, the home support will also aid the foxes in this game. Our preview would take a victory for Leicester City.

Leicester City vs West Ham draw odds: 3.40
West Ham win odds: 3.75
Correct Score odds
Jamie Vardy is struggling to be available for this game after being hit by a virus. If he is unavailable, it severely hampers Leicester’s chances of getting several goals in the game. Either way, this fixture has not been one for the purists with over 2.5 goals occurring only once in the last four. Our correct score prediction would go with a 1-0 victory for Leicester.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
West Ham have been unable to make any impact going forward as they have been heavily dependent on Marko Arnautovic in order to get the goals. This makes it easier for Leicester to try and defend their goal. Most of the recent meetings between the two clubs have been low on goals and our total goals prediction would expect more of the same.

First Goalscorer odds
Jamie Vardy is rated as a doubt for the game, but there is a significant chance that Claude Puel will be including the forward at all costs, as Leicester need to shake off the poor run of form. Vardy has been able to get just two goals in his seven league games against West Ham, but our first goalscorer prediction would back the England international since Leicester players will try to pick him on most occasions.
