The league leaders Leicester City will be in action as they take on Sunderland in a game where the Foxes can almost seal the title. A win here will give them a good lead with Tottenham still to play against Manchester United in a game where they could easily drop points. Sunderland on the other hand will hope that their home fans can get them a result since they need one or relegation becomes more and more likely.
The fairytale story of Leicester City is one Hollywood will be interested in but all fairytales need a happy ending and a win here will get them so close to one. This side has changed world football and watching them play their free, open style of football is something that makes any fan smile. The whole country is backing them and they will use that in a hope to win here. They should win this game since they are clearly the better team and are in way better form.
Sunderland on the other hand will themselves find it hard to have belief but they have to fight on or this might be one of the last games at the Stadium of Light for a while. Having said all that, I still think that they will lose because they are simply outmatched in class and form.
As far as betting on this game is concerned, we are amazingly getting a better than 2.00 price on Leicester City so I will take that with open arms. This is one of the best prices I have seen in a while so I shall take it because there is a lot of value. Also, the under 2.5 goals is a good bet since recently Leicester has been getting the 1-0 wins and that trend might just continue.
