Match Betting (1x2)

Leicester City were tipped by many as dark horses to land a top four spot in the Premier League before a ball was kicked and they haven’t disappointed punters who grabbed some fancy prices considering that the Foxes sit third in the table.

While Brendan Rodgers’ side have been in something of a slump since the festive period, they still boast an eight-point advantage over Manchester United and Wolves who sit in fifth and sixth respectively, while we should note that there are only ten fixtures that remain.

A Monday night victory looks to be on the cards according to the latest odds, with Ladbrokes chalking up 4/11 about a triumph for Leicester and they have notched eight victories at the King Power Stadium this season.

They will also be up against an Aston Villa team who are far from convincing on the road and Dean Smith’s side are priced as 17/2 outsiders with BetVictor to claim a surprise win on the road.

The Villans will draw confidence from the fact that they gave their Midlands rivals something of a game in the EFL Cup where they came away with a 1-1 draw before beating the same team at Villa Park.

Smith would dearly love to earn a point from this encounter and the draw is trading at 4/1 with Paddy Power although ten defeats in fourteen away encounters tends to tell its own story.

Asian Handicap

Leicester have admittedly hit something of a slump, although the Foxes have still got decent stats at the King Power Stadium and they were somewhat unlucky when recently losing 1-0 at home to Manchester City.

It’s surely a matter of time before Jamie Vardy starts getting among the goals, with the Asian Handicap market looking interesting considering that Rodgers’ still will be typically attack-minded in this clash.

Leicester are trading at 21/20 with Unibet with a -1.5 goal handicap which means you would need the home side to triumph by a two-goal margin and that seems eminently possible.

Let’s consider the fact that Aston Villa are conceding two goals away from home on average and they are so leaky that the Foxes could run in a few goals against a team who will have worked hard in the EFL Cup final.

Unibet have 39/20 about Leicester -2 on the Asian Handicap and that means money back if there’s a two goal winning margin, although you would need a margin of three goals or more to land the spoils.

Both Teams to Score

Leicester have actually been defensively sounder in recent weeks. Although they did lose at Norwich, it was only by a single goal, while it was another 1-0 reverse against Manchester City.

Previously to this, City came away from Molineux with a goalless draw and the “No” option is available at even money on BetVictor’s Both Teams to Score market.

However, some will look at the two EFL Cup matches where both teams found the net and there will be plenty of “Yes” backers at 4/5 with William Hill.
