Leicester should be fired up to have a real crack at Chelsea in Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final and are fancied to book a visit to Wembley.
The Blues must recover from a midweek Champions League loss at Barcelona and the fatigue factor is expected to play a part in this clash.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester laboured through a couple of the earlier rounds against Fleetwood and Sheffield United, but they did enjoy a 5-1 romp at Peterborough.
The Foxes should now be on a high following last weekend’s 4-1 Premier League win at West Brom, when recovering from going behind early on.
Claude Puel said: “We are happy about this game. Not just about the result but about the quality we put on the pitch in the second half.
“We found our clinical edge with fantastic goals and good moves – this is a good reward for the team.”
Star duo Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez led the fightback, while it was also nice to see Kelechi Iheanacho net his first top-flight goal for the club.
The Nigeria striker had previously hit two doubles in this competition and is starting to show some of the sparkle which made him look a hot prospect at Manchester City.
Looking at the Leicester vs Chelsea odds, 66/1 for Iheanacho to break the deadlock in a 2-1 home win is an eye-catching price.
A Look At Chelsea’s Betting Odds
Chelsea only scraped past Norwich on penalties in round three, so they can be vulnerable when making changes for FA Cup ties.
There were no such dramas in a 3-0 defeat of Newcastle and a 4-0 triumph over Hull at Stamford Bridge, though, which suggests Leicester’s best chance of progressing is to go on the offensive here.
The Blues have struggled on the road in the Premier League recently, going down 4-1 at Watford and tasting defeat twice in Manchester.
Antonio Conte’s side also bowed out of the EFL Cup following a 2-1 loss at Arsenal in the second leg of their semi-final clash.
The Foxes have the firepower to oblige in an open contest, so we’re adding 21/4 for a home win and both teams to score to our Leicester vs Chelsea betting tips.
