Leicester City finish their season off at home at the King Power Stadium as they take on Bournemouth in what should be a pretty close contest. Both teams finished in similar positions in the league and they both did pretty well in their standards and I think a win for either team will be wanted although not needed. This is once again a final day dead rubber.

Leicester City had a pretty good season in Europe but at the moment they have nothing to play for. This side secured their spot as a middle of the table team and they will look to make sure that this continues in the seasons that are to follow. The likes of Vardy seem like they want to stay and they have a lot of good depth in the side that they acquired for Europe this season. This will come in handy in this game as the players all over the country seem tired.

Bournemouth on the other hand look like they are on holiday. They are safe and away from home so I do not expect them to have a big performance here. This side has good heart but at the moment that is not needed and I think it will mean that they will lose here.

We are getting a good enough price on Leicester City to win here and as a result that is the most obvious bet to make. The over 2.5 goals also makes sense since neither team will work hard and defend well so I am expecting a lot of goals in this game. Both teams not to score is also a valid bet here since it not likely that Bournemouth will score away from home in a game like this one.

 

Pick:
Leicester City
