Why Bet on Leicester City?
As we already mentioned, Leicester City are having a pretty good season. Right now, they are in third place with 43 points (13-4-6), seven less than Manchester City (first place), but the “Citizens” have played one game less.
The “Foxes” have lost just one of their last 10 English Premier League games. During that span they beat Tottenham (2-0) and Chelsea (2-0), while they also drew 2-2 against Manchester United (second place).
Leicester City have scored 39 goals (second worst among the top five) and have allowed 25 (better than Manchester United and Liverpool). They haven’t allowed any goals in their last two games.
As expected, Jamie Vardy is the team’s top scorer with 11 goals. He’s followed by Harvey Barnes and James Maddison with seven and six goals.
In their last 10 games against Liverpool, Leicester City managed to finish with a clean sheet in just one game and failed to score in two.
This season, they have been better when playing on the road (8-3-1). At home, they have a 5-1-5 record; they also have a 5-5-1 (against the spread) and 5-5-1 (over/under) records when playing at King Power Stadium.
Why Bet on Liverpool?
They are in a must-win situation, and they have the tools to revert their current situation. Right now, Liverpool are in fourth place with 40 points thanks to an 11-7-5 record; they are 10 points away from the top and they already lost more games than the previous season.
The “Reds” lost their last two games in a row; first against Brighton (0-1) and later against Manchester City (1-4). Curiously enough, that loss against Manchester City was the first one against the other members of the “Big Six” this season.
Liverpool have scored 44 goals (second best among the top 10), but they have allowed 29 (third worst among the top 10).
Individually, Mohamed Salah keeps proving himself as one of the best players in the world; he leads the English Premier League scoring chart with 16, three more than the other members of the top five. He’s followed by Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino with seven and six goals.
Liverpool have scored 22 goals in their last 10 games against Leicester City. Also, they managed to finish with a clean sheet two times and failed to score just once.
This season, Liverpool have a 4-5-2 record when playing on the road. They also have a 5-6 (against the spread) and 5-6 (over/under) records when playing away from Anfield.
Keep in mind that Liverpool return to the UEFA Champions League action next Tuesday, a tournament that looks more manageable to win.
