What Trueform says for Southampton vs Leicester
Leicester are consistently tracking above Southampton on our Trueform chart so they have to be rated as a value pick when underdogs at St Mary’s Stadium.
Jamie Vardy’s suspension for being sent off in a 2-0 triumph over Wolves is a worry, but we’re sticking with the Foxes to stun the Saints.
Punters can get 21/10 for an away win and that is still tempting enough to be our first Southampton vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton only just survived a Premier League relegation battle last season and have started slowly this term, drawing 0-0 with Burnley and losing 2-1 at Everton.
Saints again improved in the second half at Goodison Park, but Danny Ings’ first goal for the club proved only a consolation effort after trailing 2-0 at the break.
Mark Hughes was content with the chances created by his team, but hit out at some defensive lapses in concentration, especially in a sloppy opening period.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester played well in defeat at Manchester United and confirmed that promise with a solid 2-0 success against Wolves at King Power Stadium.
The Foxes had to ride their luck as Wanderers hit the woodwork three times, but an own-goal from Matt Doherty and James Maddison’s deflected strike sealed the win.
Vardy’s straight red card with 25 minutes remaining, after catching Doherty with a high challenge, marred the victory, but Claude Puel was delighted with the attitude shown.
“I’m pleased it was a tough game because we saw the character of the team,” said the manager. “In these difficulties, we showed responsibility, a positive attitude and a fighting spirit.”
Kelechi Iheanacho can come in for Vardy and 17/5 for the Foxes to oblige by a one-goal margin completes our Southampton vs Leicester betting tips.
