What Trueform says for Leicester vs Crystal Palace
Leicester have had a fortnight off to recover from a tough run of fixtures and will be looking for an upturn in fortunes when hosting Crystal Palace.
However, the Eagles are in decent form at the moment and can also take heart from three straight head-to-head wins over the Foxes in the past 14 months.
We think this has all the makings of an even contest, so 23/10 for a stalemate is our first Leicester vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester have only picked up one point from their last five Premier League matches, but that was when drawing 1-1 at Liverpool and subsequent defeats came against Manchester United and Tottenham.
The Foxes went down 3-1 away to Spurs but played far better than that scoreline suggests, with substitute Jamie Vardy having a penalty saved before pulling it back to 2-1 on 76 minutes.
City had 20 attempts on goal in a positive display at Wembley and were bang in contention until Son Heung-min netted in stoppage time.
“It was the same feeling against United, we wasted a lot of chances,” said Claude Puel. “We need to find a clinical edge, because we need the points.”
If the Foxes continue to push forward in the same way, it will be a surprise if the goals do not start coming soon.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Evans, Maguire, Gray, Maddison, Pereira, Barnes, Tielemans, Ndidi, Ghezzal.
Ben Chilwell and James Maddison will be assessed for Leicester, with the pair suffering from minor knocks, but Nampalys Mendy (groin) is fit.
Marc Albrighton (hamstring) is likely to miss the rest of the season, while Daniel Amartey (ankle) is also out. Vardy could be recalled to the starting line-up.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace are unbeaten in three top-flight fixtures, drawing 1-1 with Southampton and West Ham either side of a 2-0 triumph over Fulham.
The Eagles are also in the FA Cup quarter-finals after goals from Jeffrey Schlupp and Max Meyer helped to secure a 2-0 success at Doncaster.
“We had prepared for a tough game,” said Roy Hodgson. “We knew Doncaster Rovers were a good football team and we had seen enough from our research to know that.
“Luckily, I was able to really imprint that in the minds of our players and there was never going to be any complacency on our part.”
Palace are a prime example of how a good FA Cup run can help to build confidence, with Tottenham beaten 2-0 in the previous round.
The Eagles are still trying to claw their way clear of the drop zone and 23/4 for a third 1-1 draw in four league games is added to our Leicester vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Hennessey, Ward, Van Aanholt, Dann, Schlupp, Kelly, Milivojevic, Meyer, Townsend, Ayew, Batshuayi.
Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been ruled out with a hamstring injury. Martin Kelly also misses out due to a muscle strain, with Joel Ward expected to start at right-back.
