Leicester v Chelsea tips – back Foxes to make a point

Leicester City are six points better off than Chelsea in the Premier League table at the time of writing, although that hasn’t stopped the bookmakers from making the Foxes outsiders on their betting markets, with the Midlands side available at odds bigger than 2/1.

The plain fact is that Leicester have won ten of their seventeen top-flight encounters and that sort of win rate could be enough to qualify for the Champions League, with City likely to relish the chance to meet a Chelsea side who have really started to hit a few bumps in the road at the wrong point in the season.

Why Are Leicester Big Betting Outsiders to Win?

The latest betting markets are clearly subject to change, although Leicester are currently trading at bigger than 2/1 when you compare the latest bookie odds and many will be looking to back Brendan Rodgers’ side on either the Full-Time Result betting market or one of the alternatives.

The Asian Handicap betting market will provide customers with the chance to back the Foxes either off scratch or with half a goal start depending on how much you fancy their chances. Alternatively, you can even look to place a bet on Leicester on the Draw No Bet betting market.

Jamie Vardy has once again been in excellent scoring form and he will look forward to probing away at a defence which hasn’t always looked watertight, with Kurt Zouma and Thiago Silva having to be on their awares, while James Maddison is usually running the show in midfield.

Can Chelsea Be Trusted at Short Betting Odds?

It looks as though some bookies are aiming to take on Chelsea, with William Hill and BetVictor going 11/8 about an away win at the time of writing and we recommend that you compare betting odds leading up to kick-off as you might even be able to secure 6/4 or even bigger considering recent form.

Frank Lampard was given a blank cheque book following Chelsea’s transfer embargo during the 2019/20 season although the raft of players that have arrived at Stamford Bridge has not led to a particularly impressive campaign thus far and the London side occupy a mid-table spot in the Premier League table.

What Are the Best Bets for Leicester v Chelsea?

The match between Leicester and Chelsea promises to be spectacular and it’s a match where both teams will be looking to land victory. The visitors’ return of twenty-six points from the seventeen games played is below par based on Frank Lampard’s spend level and they will aim to get on the front foot.

If you want to place a bet on the Full-Time Result betting market, then we suggest that you compare betting prices and look to place a bet on the draw which was the outcome last season when the game finished in a 2-2 scoreline at the King Power Stadium.
