A look at Leicester’s betting odds
The Foxes are clearly back on track after a sluggish start to their Premier League title defence, with Leicester winning three of their last four, the past two by 3-0 scorelines.
Claudio Ranieri’s men took a bit of a pasting in the other, going down 4-1 away to Liverpool, but they were far from awful at Anfield against a Reds side inspired in their first home fixture of the campaign.
The loss looks a little better following Liverpool’s 2-1 victory at Chelsea, and Leicester should be more than confident of facing the out-of-form west Londoners back at headquarters.
A 2-0 FA Cup reverse against Tottenham Hotspur in January was the last loss incurred by the Foxes at the King Power, with nine wins and three draws picked up since, so their startling 21/10 outsider odds are worth betting on.
A look at Chelsea’s betting odds
Like Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho, Blues boss Antonio Conte is using up a lot of goodwill given his side’s recent struggles, after a cracking start to Premier League life for the Italian.
Following up three straight wins with a 2-2 draw at Swansea and loss at home to Liverpool wasn’t part of the plan for Chelsea this season, with some suggesting their title race has already been run.
They can’t be touched in the betting at just about odds against, so swerve Chelsea’s 6/5 in favour of the hosts’ meatier price.
