After their 5-0 thrashing at home to Blackpool, Leeds travel to King Power Stadium to face managerless Leicester hoping to bounce back with a win.
However, a closer look at the statistics suggests that the Foxes are well worthy of their 3/4 favouritism in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
In the last ten meetings between the sides, Leicester have won five, there have been four draws and Leeds have won just the once.
If you fancy United to add a win to that record, they are priced at 33/10, with the draw valued at 13/5.
That defeat during midweek at the hands of Ian Holloway’s men meant that Leeds fell to tenth place in the Championship table, behind Sunday’s opponents on goal difference.
Leicester are feeling confident after their 3-1 victory away at Burnley, and have the option of starting former Leeds hero Jermaine Beckford, who will be intent on causing problems for his old team.
A bet I find interesting is for there to be over 3.5 goals in the game at 9/5, as this has been the case in the hosts’ previous six matches, while Simon Grayson’s team have fallen just short with an average of three goals a game being scored in their last six.
Punters who back this eventuality with heir free £25 bet for joining bwin.com will be guaranteed a return of £70 if the result comes in.
Along the same theme, Leicester’s impressive record in this fixture means the hosts to triumph in a match with over three goals carries some appeal at odds of 16/5.
There also appears to be plenty of value in backing the draw at half-time with Leicester winning at full-time at 4/1, as seven of the Foxes’ 15 Championship matches to date have been level at the break.
