Leicester City take on Swansea this weekend in a game which will have a huge impact on the outcome of the season. Last weekend, Leicester dropped 2 points against West Ham which allowed Tottenham to reduce the gap to 5 points. This weekend it is essential that Leicester don’t allow that gap to drop any more since then it will be really hard looking at their run home. A win for Leicester on the other hand will do them a world of good since it will not only get them three points, it will allow the momentum to be back on their side.

Leicester City will be at home for this game but unfortunately they will be without their key striker, Jamie Vardy, who is out due to suspension. This is surely a disadvantage for the Foxes but the side has a bit of depth in this area and I think a solid replacement will be available. Regardless, this should always be a game which Leicester win and I think they will do it quite easily.

Swansea on the other hand will know they don’t have much to play for and they might just be on holiday for this game. The players will be tired and the motivation levels will be low so I think a loss is the only possible result for them here at the King Power Stadium.

As far as betting is concerned, I don’t see any real value in betting on Leicester City outright since we are not getting a very good price on it. The best bet for this game is the under 2.5 goals since a 1-0 or 2-0 win for Leicester is the most likely outcome. We are getting a good price and I think there is value in putting in quite a large wager. 

Pick:
Leicester City
