The two surprise teams of the season will clash this weekend as Leicester City will play host against Stoke City in a game which should be simply amazing to watch. Both teams play an attacking, fast flowing and open style of football and this makes them really interesting and fun to watch.

Leicester City will feel a little disappointed after their previous outing where they failed to get the entire 3 points against Aston Villa in a game which should have been an easy win. That win would have given this side first spot but unfortunately that wasn’t the case and they will be up to the challenge again this weekend. This match should be one which they will win since they are at home and although they are facing an opposition who are really on form, they should get the three points with the talent they have and with the home crowd behind them.

Stoke City on the other hand will also feel that they are good enough to get the three points. This side has perhaps the best goalkeeper in the EPL and with the likes of Shaqiri up front they can match it with the best of teams. I am excited about this team going forward but perhaps this outing might be a little too much.

Overall I think that betting the line is the way to go. The draw against Aston Villa raised their odds so as far as I am concerned we are getting a good enough price so I think that taking this price is the way to go. Also I think that taking over 2.5 goals is a good bet because we are getting a good price and both teams have a lot of goals in them. 

Pick:
Leicester City
