Leeds v Leicester betting tips: Foxes have good road goal trend
Preview and odds for Sunday’s Premier League clash
Leeds are looking to earn back-to-back wins for the first time this season when they host the Foxes on Sunday, so we look at the odds to find some Leeds v Leicester betting tips.
Leeds gained a much-needed win at fellow strugglers Norwich last weekend, while Leicester fell at home to Arsenal.
Sunday’s match, which takes place at Elland Road, kicks off at 2pm.
Leeds v Leicester match odds
Leeds gained only their second win of the season with a 2-1 victory against bottom club Norwich at Carrow Road last weekend to leave them in 17th place in the Premier League table, three points above the relegation zone.
Both of their two wins have come against newly-promoted sides (Watford and Norwich) and Marcelo Bielsa’s side are 33/20 to win.
Leeds are averaging just one goal per game this term, down from 1.6 goals per game last season, and they are also averaging one shot fewer per game.
As well as scoring four of their 10 goals this season, Raphinha has created the most chances (18) and had the most shots (32) for Bielsa’s side. He is 9/4 to score at any time in Leeds v Leicester betting tips and it is 17/2 that he outscores the opposition.
The Whites will hope to breach a Leicester side that has lost seven of their last 14 Premier League games (W5 D2) and one that has had a problem defensively. Brendan Rodgers’ side have conceded in each of their last nine league games since beating Wolves 1-0 on the opening weekend.
There have been three draws in the last 13 meetings between the sides and it is 5/2 that the game ends in a stalemate.
Leeds v Leicester head-to-head
Leicester have won four of their last five away league games against Leeds (L1), as many as they had in their previous 16 visits to Elland Road. The Foxes are looking to win three in a row at Leeds for the first time in their history. They are 4/9 to earn at least a point on the Double Chance market (win or draw the game).
Leeds are looking to win consecutive league games against Leicester for the first time since December 1999, following their 3-1 win at the King Power Stadium in January.
Leicester won this fixture 4-1 last November and they are the only side to put four past Leeds at Elland Road since their return to the Premier League.
The last three meetings in all competitions yielded four or more goals in total and that is an interesting option to continue at 31/20 in Leeds v Leicester betting tips.
Leeds v Leicester key battles
Despite their defensive generosity, Leicester seem to be able to find the net with regularity on their travels. They have scored in each of their last 12 away games (W5 D3 L4), with only Liverpool on a better run of goals away from home (15 games). Leicester are 2/9 to extend their run and it is 21/10 that they score two or more.
Jamie Vardy is always likely to pop up with a goal, especially in Yorkshire. The Sheffield-born striker has netted in each of his last five trips to the county and he is 11/8 to score at any time and 7/1 to score two or more.
