Leicester have laboured since returning to action but get a good chance to bolster their top-four hopes when hosting Crystal Palace on Saturday.
The Foxes prevailed 2-0 when these teams met at Selhurst Park in November and injury problems have currently left Palace looking disjointed up front.
We’re snapping up 29/20 for City to win to nil again as our opening Leicester vs Crystal Palace prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester remain in third place ahead of this contest, but a moderate run of results since the restart has allowed others to close the gap.
Premier League draws with Watford and Brighton were followed by an FA Cup defeat against Chelsea and Tuesday’s 2-1 top-flight loss at Everton.
Brendan Rodgers said: “I think we have shown over the course of the season we have got the talent but there is no doubt that we have to have a reset mentally if we are going to go and achieve what we want to achieve.
“Thankfully, we are still in a fantastic position but we have got to try to sustain that.
“At this end of the season, it’s really about coping with that and that is something I need to help them do.
“We have been terrific for a lot of the season. Our level has been high and somehow we need to work our way back to that.”
The Foxes got off to a shocking start at Goodison Park but did at least improve after the break, with Kelechi Iheanacho pulling a goal back and fellow substitute James Maddison pushing for an equaliser.
City have netted 21 of their 30 goals at King Power Stadium in the second half, so Evens they outscore the Eagles in that period appeals from the Leicester vs Crystal Palace odds.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Justin, Chilwell, Soyuncu, Evans, Tielemans, Albrighton, Barnes, Ndidi, Praet, Vardy.
A Look At Crystal Palace’s Betting Odds
Palace resumed with a good win at Bournemouth but have since been thrashed 4-0 at Liverpool and then lost 1-0 to Burnley on home turf.
Roy Hodgson believes the Eagles have been badly affected by losing Christian Benteke to injury towards the end of their triumph over the Cherries.
“In the first game, where I thought it worked very well with our forward line, we lost Christian,” said Hodgson.
“As a result, Andros (Townsend) has come in on the right and Jordan (Ayew) has played in a position where he is slightly less effective compared to when he plays in the wider position.”
Palace don’t tend to take many hidings, though, and have only conceded more than twice on three occasions this term, so we’re not expecting a big win for Leicester.
However, the Foxes are fancied at 23/10 to shade victory in a game featuring under 2.5 goals, while 5/1 for a narrow 1-0 home success completes our Leicester vs Crystal Palace betting tips.
Last Palace line-up: Guaita, Ward, Van Aanholt, Dann, Cahill, Milivojevic, Kouyate, Townsend, McArthur, Ayew, Zaha.
