Our Tipster’s Angle

The expectations seem to have completely turned around for both sides midseason as Leicester are serious title contenders and Chelsea are playing with hopes of qualification for the Champions League. On current form, you could see Leicester definitely causing Chelsea problems in this fixture.

Tip 1: Leicester City To Win or Draw

Leicester City have had a great season and they are currently on an unbeaten streak of six games. Leicester City comfortably put away Southampton in their previous match who have been a tough opposition this season. Leicester’s chances have also improved to get something from the game as Chelsea have looked very average in the previous few weeks. The head-to-head encounters between the two sides have mostly resulted in a draw as four out of the five matches have resulted in a draw and one ended up in a Leicester Win. So it looks most likely that Leicester would get at least one point from the game at 1.65 odds available on Casumo sportsbook.

 Tip 2: Total Goals Under 3

In the last six head-to-head matches between the two sides, five encounters have had less than three goals in the match which also includes two goalless draws. In recent premier league matches for both sides, not many goals have been scored. Out of the seven matches played by Chelsea in the league only two have had more than three goals scored in them. Leicester also have a similar record, as they have had only match that has gone over three goals in their last seven games. Hence there are better chances of this being a low-scoring encounter at 1.61 odds available on Casumo sportsbook. 


 A victory for Leicester would mean that they would go top of the table. Chelsea on the other hand have to start winning again as there is a lot of competition for the champions league places this season with Tottenham and Everton. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above

  1. Leicester City To Win or Draw @ 1.65
  2. Total Goals Under 3 @ 1.61
