Leicester head into the weekend 4th on the table and they broke a 2 match losing run last time out when they beat Sheffield United 2-1 on the road.  Their last home game though was a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Fulham.

Brighton have only won 1 of their last 9 matches and they sit 16th on the log, 11 points behind Leicester.  They have won 2 out of their 5 away matches this season including beating Villa 2-1 in their last road trip.

BETTING

Leicester 21/20

Draw 51/20

Brighton 27/10

Suggested Bet:  Leicester win at 21/20

Leicester will be buoyed by victory in Europe in midweek and I am quite happy to be backing them at just over even money.

Leicester remain 3rd on the table after an away draw at Watford on the weekend.  They looked like they had grabbed the 3 points heading into extra time only for Watford to equalise and the spoils were shared.  Leicester’s home record has been very good this season with 9 wins and 3 draws in their 15 starts, but in their last 5 home matches they have only won twice.  10 of the 15 Leicester home matches have delivered for over 2.5 goal backers including 4 of their last 5.

Brighton beat Arsenal 2-1 on Saturday for a valuable 3 points to take them out of the reach of the relegation zone for the time being.  This broke a run of 9 successive matches without a victory and away from home they have just won twice in 15 starts with 5 draws and 8 defeats and they have drawn their last 3 away matches.  9 of Brighton’s 15 away matches have had 3 goals or more in them.

Leicester beat Brighton 2-0 on the road earlier this season and they have won this fixture the last 2 renewals.

Betting

Leicester 7/10

Draw 57/20

Brighton 4/1

Suggested Bet:  Leicester win at 7/10

I was impressed by both teams on the weekend, but despite not having the crowd behind them I think that Leicester at home will be too strong and they can make it 3 wins in a row over Brighton.
