Leeds United Betting Preview
Leeds United comes into this game sitting in 16th place in the standings having picked up 37 points. Leeds United has lost three games in a row and during the stretch of games they have given up 13 goals total. In the last game against Fulham they were defeated 2-1. The only goal scored for Leicester City was an own goal. Tyler Adams and Stuart Dallas aren’t going to be able to go in this game because of injury and not having both of those guys is a big loss for this team. Wilfried Gnonto came off the bench in the last game, but he could move back into the starting lineup in this game.
Leicester City Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City who sits in 17th place in the standings having picked up 28 points. Leicester City have had some major issues so far this season, but they are again out of the relegation zone after picking up a win on Saturday. Timothy Castagne scored a goal in the 75th minute, and that was the difference on the way to the victory. James Maddison was dealing with an illness and he wasn’t able to go on Saturday. Harvey Barnes also could be back from a hamstring injury and that would be a big boost for the team.
Shane’s Free Pick
These are two teams who can take advantage of bad defenses, and both of these teams have bad defenses. Leicester City also is going to get two big boosts from Maddison and Barnes being back, and their offensive success is going to happen here. Leeds United is also going to find offensive success, and that will be the difference here. Back the over 3.5 goals to cash here.
