The English Premier League is back this weekend and the first match of the round will be between Leicester City and Stoke City. Both teams will know how important a win is and as a result, we should be able to witness a great game of football.
Leicester City are having a decent season and it seems like they should not be concerned about the possibility of relegation. Having said that, wins are still needed since they are not safe yet. This week they will be at home and be playing a side that they expect to beat. The Foxes have been very inconsistent this season so it will be interesting to see what side turns up this weekend.
On the other side of the coin, Stoke City are in a relegation battle. This side has failed to win home games and it seems like they need points from every possible game if they wish to survive the relegation battle. There are many teams near the bottom of the ladder and as a result, Stoke will know how important it will be to win this game. Having said that, they are not playing well and will be away from home so I see them leaving King Power Stadium with no points.
As far as betting is concerned, we are getting a good price to bet on Leicester City to win this game and as a result, the outright result market is the best option. In addition to that, this should also be a high scoring game since both teams love to score goals and can’t defend. We are getting a decent price on the over 2.5 goals so that is another good betting option.
