Huddersfield vs Leicester: Foxes fancied for away triumph
Odds: Huddersfield 19/10, Draw 23/10, Leicester 27/20
Kick Off: 1500, 16/09/2017
Stadium: John Smith’s Stadium
Leicester have already accounted for one promoted team this term and are fancied to again show their quality when visiting Premier League rookies Huddersfield.
The Foxes were comfortable 2-0 victors over Brighton last month and have shown enough in three other games against elite clubs to suggest they are capable of making the top half of the table.
We’re kicking off our Huddersfield vs Leicester betting predictions by snapping up 27/20 for City to prevail.
A Look At Huddersfield Town’s Betting Odds
Huddersfield’s honeymoon period in the top flight was halted by Monday night’s 2-0 loss at West Ham, where they had plenty of possession but lacked a cutting edge up front.
To be fair, Tom Ince did hit the bar late on and they were unlucky when Pedro Obiang’s heavily-deflected shot ended a run of 342 minutes without conceding at this level.
However, even David Wagner admitted “it was a deserved defeat” and acknowledged the Terriers will have to be sharper to compete against the better teams in this division.
He said: “We have to be honest that we were not good enough with the ball – not confident enough or brave enough.
“The goals were unlucky, but our performance was not good enough. We had seven or eight players not on it.”
Since starting out with a stunning success at Crystal Palace, Huddersfield have only found the net with one long-range effort in their next three Premier League fixtures.
That makes 14/5 for an away win to nil worth including in our Huddersfield vs Leicester betting tips.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester have had little reward for some brave efforts against three of the big six teams, losing 4-3 at Arsenal, holding out for 70 minutes at Manchester United and going down 2-1 to Chelsea.
Jamie Vardy’s 62nd-minute penalty sparked a late charge against the Blues and showed there is no shortage of spirit in this team, which we still rate as an above-average outfit.
“The players applied themselves magnificently in the second half, on another day it might have gone our way,” said Craig Shakespeare.
“We said the first six games would be a challenge. We go again and have to dust ourselves down.”
Getting Japan forward Shinji Okazaki back will be a boost after he missed the Chelsea clash due to jet lag and Riyad Mahrez’s direct running is sure to cause Huddersfield problems.
Looking at the Huddersfield vs Leicester odds, we reckon 27/20 for the visitors to score more than once is value.
