Leicester City will be playing against Liverpool this weekend in what should be a home game that they will hope to win in order to remain ahead of their rivals for top spot in the Premier League. Liverpool on the other hand will also want to win since they still believe that the top 4 is still a real possibility.
Leicester City are a real force this season and I am picking them to win the title. I know that most experts will disagree with me but they are simply not slipping up and if they can get through this month unharmed then they are all but through. This is the first real test for them in a series of testing games which are coming up. I think that they are good enough to win here. The away game was too much for them but at home I am picking them to win against a Liverpool team who were very poor in the Cup games they played. In addition to that, Liverpool will have a bit more fatigue since they have played an extra game in the past 7 days. All these added up will give the home side a win here in my opinion.
Overall, I think that betting on the outright result is the way to go. This expected to be a close game so we are getting a really good price. This result should get there and I think it is a safe and good value bet both in one. I also think that it will be a high scoring game since that is generally the trend with Leicester City. This is also getting a good price so I am also going to be taking the over 2.5 goals and another bet.
