Peterborough have scored plenty of goals in the FA Cup this season and we’re expecting an entertaining encounter when they host Leicester in the fourth round.

The Foxes will travel to London Road in fine spirits after a strong run of results in the Premier League and both teams will hopefully look to put on a show in front of the BT Sport cameras.

We’re kicking off our Peterborough vs Leicester betting predictions by taking 31/20 for over 3.5 goals in the game.

A Look At Peterborough United’s Betting Odds

Peterborough did require a couple of replays to get through the first two rounds, but they managed to beat Tranmere 5-0 and Woking 5-2 in those matches.

Posh then produced a late blitz to prevail 3-1 at Aston Villa earlier this month, with all of their goals coming in the last quarter of an hour.

Grant McCann will also be pleased with his side’s League One form, having followed up an away draw versus leaders Wigan with a 3-0 drubbing of Oldham at this venue.

Jack Marriott is the man to watch out for, with the highly-rated 23-year-old having struck 18 goals in the league this season and 24 overall.

This is a tough test, though, so 2/1 for an away win and both teams to score takes the eye from the Peterborough vs Leicester odds.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

Leicester weren’t at the races when held to a goalless draw at Fleetwood in round three, but Kelechi Iheanacho’s double helped them come through the replay with a smooth 2-0 success.

Seventh-placed City are also going well in the top flight, claiming convincing wins over Huddersfield and Watford either side of picking up a point at Chelsea.

Claude Puel will make changes, but his fringe players performed well in the EFL Cup and the Frenchman does tend to give the likes of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez a run-out at some point in knockout games.

We’re finishing off our Peterborough vs Leicester betting tips by taking 21/2 for a 3-1 away victory.
