Match Betting (1x2)

You might be forgiven for thinking that Leicester City are a better team than Manchester City this season. After all, Brendan Rodgers’ side are four points better off than last year’s champions and that’s despite slipping up at home to Norwich last weekend when they were only able to land a draw.

The Foxes have a return of 39 points from 17 games played this season and will head to the Etihad Stadium with no pressure on their shoulders, with the Midlands side having won five of their eight away matches this term.

William Hill offer 13/2 about a Leicester win in this Saturday teatime clash, with Manchester City overwhelming favourites to claim three points in what looks to currently be a vain pursuit of Liverpool at the top of the table.

City already need snookers if they are to claim a third consecutive title, although they can close the gap on the Reds and the bookies offer no bigger than 2/5 (Ladbrokes) that Pep Guardiola’s side claim the spoils.

The Citizens have won five of their eight matches at home, although they have slipped up twice. Once against Wolves and the other against Manchester United. Both teams were able to soak up pressure and hit their opponents on the break.

The draw would clearly benefit Leicester the most considering their target is a top four place rather than the title this season. You can get 17/4 with Unibet that the game ends all square and the visitors nearly left Anfield with a point earlier in the season.

Asian Handicap

The Asian Handicap market is ideal for football matches like this where the match odds are regarded as uncompetitive. For example, you might want to side with Leicester City to acquit themselves well without wanting to bet on them to actually win the match.

So let’s say you think that the visitors can make it a close game in this top-of-the-table clash. Unibet have 4/5 about Leicester with a +1.5 goal advantage and that would mean a profit overall if they were able to avoid defeat by more than one goal.

Alternatively, some punters might have been really taken by Manchester City’s excellent 3-0 win at Arsenal last weekend which saw Guardiola’s team three goals to the good by half-time and you can get 19/10 with Unibet that the home side overcome a -2 goal handicap and triumph.

With the above bet, you would have the insurance of money back should City enjoy a two-goal margin of victory.

Both Teams to Score

Ladbrokes have an attractive 4/6 about both teams scoring in this clash and it’s easy to see an open game of football. While Leicester’s first port of call will be to contain their opponents, it’s very rare that we don’t see the Midlands side find the net during the ninety minutes.

Alternatively, if you think that at least one side will fail to score, then the “No” option on this market is trading at odds of 5/4 with BetVictor.

One bet we actually like is the 6/4 with William Hill that Manchester City win the game and both teams find the net during the ninety minutes.
