Nigel Pearson has returned to Leicester to take charge of the struggling outfit and help them move them closer to their Premier League dream.
As is often noticed, when a new manager takes the helm at a club players tend to perform with greater enthusiasm and I can see something similar happening for the Foxes this weekend.
If you agree, then a Leicester win against Crystal Palace at the King Power Stadium, priced at 3/5, looks the best bet in bwin’s 3Way football betting market.
Meanwhile, the draw can be backed at 5/2 and the away win is available at 19/4.
Crystal Palace have been performing above expectations this season and are currently in sixth place, despite failing to win in their last three games.
But Leicester, buoyed by Pearson’s return and with home advantage, are capable of putting in a stirring second half showing and grabbing all three points.
Indeed, both sides are likely to score more goals after the interval than they are before the break.
A bet on the Eagles to score more goals in the second half than before half time at 11/5 certainly makes sense, with a successful £25 free bet on this outcome set to return £80.

Twelve of Palace’s 18 goals have been scored after the break, and seven of them have been in the last 15 minutes, which shows they don’t give up.
Most of these goals have been scored by top scorer Glenn Murray.
A similar bet is on over 1.5 goals in the second half at 5/4.
I’ve already mentioned Palace’s second half record, and Leicester have scored half of their goals after half time.
Six of these have come in the first 15 minutes of the second half, which shows the team talk can make a difference for both sides.
Just expect Pearson’s to be more effective, making a draw/Leicester win my last tip at odds of 7/2.
