The English Premier League returns with a fresh set of fixtures as Leicester plays host to Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium on Sunday, April 10. Our sportsbook is offering a great range of betting markets and props for the top European soccer leagues.
Leicester City: Underpriced
Leicester City will switch from Europe to the Premier League where they are to host Crystal Palace, right after their goalless draw with Dutch giants PSV in the Europa Conference League.
Last weekend, The Foxes shared the spoils against Man United in the absence of their star striker Jamie Vardy with a knee injury he sustained last month. Iheanacho struck just shortly after the hour mark before the Red Devils provided a prompt response. The point saw Leicester move up to ninth in the Premier League table.
Brendan Rodgers has praised Wesley Fofana for his superb performance during the clash with Manchester United, which came after the defender began fasting for Ramadan. He even played against PSV helping his side to keep the Dutch team at bay.
Although Leicester remains down in 10th position in the standings, there is a feeling that they are back on a positive trend. They’ve also gone seven matches across all competitions without suffering defeat on home soil, the last setback coming against Tottenham in January. As Leicester City’s underwhelming season draws to a close, at least they’re making themselves hard to beat but with matches every three days and without their best player, it’s tough for us to include them in our soccer picks and parlays.
Crystal Palace: Great Run of Form
Crystal Palace’s late-season surge continued with an impressive 3-0 win over Arsenal, an impressive win for Patrick Vieira’s troops. Crystal Palace’s Jordan Ayew extended his brilliant goalscoring record against Arsenal in the Premier League on Monday night. He has scored four Premier League goals against Arsenal, his joint-best tally against an opponent in the competition
The Eagles are now unbeaten in seven games, claiming five wins and two draws since losing 1-0 against Chelsea in February. Patrick Vieira has steered an impressive turnaround at Palace, who sit ninth in the standings, equal on points with Sunday’s opponents but with a better goals difference.
Barring the rotation of strikers, the Palace team has largely picked itself over the course of the season, with the majority of the club’s summer signings offered regular game time where they are clearly the standout players in their position. The squad has great depth, they are not missing important players for this clash and we expect them to give huge headaches to Leicester. The value is on Crystal Palace but if you’re betting online you should check all the markets because there’s always something better to bet on.
Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Head-to-Head
Leicester is also unbeaten in their last seven home games across competitions, picking up four wins and three draws since a 3-2 loss against Tottenham in January. Palace heads into Sunday’s game unbeaten in seven games, claiming five wins and two draws. While Palace will look to keep the ball rolling, next up is an opposing side whom they have failed to defeat in five meetings, losing twice and claiming two draws since a 4-1 victory in 2019. The two teams shared the spoils in the reverse fixture in an entertaining 2-2 draw with Palace coming from two goals down to secure one point.

Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Predictions
The hosts enter this clash as slight favorites being priced at +145 on the three-way moneyline according to the latest soccer odds while the goal line is set at 2½.
Crystal Palace is on a good run with their only defeat in the last 10 matches being against Chelsea. Leicester City has struggled defensively and will miss their key man Jamie Vardy once again but they head into the game with several world-class talents across the pitch.
We expect an entertaining match with at least three goals on the scoresheet and with both teams having enough to find the back of the net. So, let’s skip the winners market and bet on the goals. There is a great chance that we will be treated to goals at both ends of the pitch as that has been the case in four of the last six league meetings between the Foxes and the Eagles. Both teams have scored in three of Leicester’s last four matches while Crystal Palace have scored in all bar one of their last six games
