Leicester v Fleetwood Town– click here to bet

Leicester are currently 8th in the English Premier League and are coming off a creditable 0-0 draw away to Chelsea on the weekend.  They bowed out in the 5th round of last season’s FA Cup but are given plenty of respect by the bookmakers and are currently 25/1 to lift the Trophy – click here for outright betting.  4 out of Leicester’s last 5 home League matches have had 3 goals or more in them.

Fleetwood currently sit mid-table in League One, having won 3 of their last 4 matches and on the weekend they beat Southend 2-1 away.  They were untroubled by Leicester when they hosted them a week and a half ago and the match finished 0-0 forcing the replay.  Fleetwood have won their last 3 away matches in the League scoring 2 goals on each occasion and they are priced as 1000/1 outsiders for the FA Cup.



Leicester 1/4

Draw 19/4

Fleetwood Town 10/1


Suggested bet:  Handicap, Leicester (-2), the draw at 59/20.

For this bet to arrive Leicester must win by exactly 2 goals. I am expecting them to win this game after a very disappointing performance on the road against Fleetwood but that being said they may not run away with it and a 2 goal winning margin looks a fair call in a game that looks tough to find a betting angle in.
