What Trueform says for Leicester vs West Brom

Leicester are clear favourites to beat West Brom but these are two very evenly matched teams on our last three rounds of Trueform ratings and we’re happy to sit on the fence and predict a stalemate when they meet at the King Power Stadium.

Both teams went into the international break on the back of draws and two down-to-earth managers appear willing to scrap for every point this term.

It all adds up to another cagey contest and 9/4 for the scores to be level at full-time gets the nod in our Leicester vs West Brom betting predictions.

A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds

Leicester are hovering around the early relegation zone with five points from seven games but they have had a tough start, already facing four of the so-called big six.

The Foxes lost all those fixtures but only went down by a one-goal margin three times and have been solid in their other games.

Brighton were beaten 2-0 at this venue and draws obtained at Huddersfield and Bournemouth, although City did look second best in both of those matches.

Riyad Mahrez’s moderate form is a major concern for Craig Shakespeare, while Jamie Vardy has been hampered by niggling injury problems.

Those issues make a low-scoring draw the way to go, with 21/4 for 1-1 added to our Leicester vs West Brom betting tips.

A Look At West Bromwich Albion’s Betting Odds

West Brom appear to have plateaued since making a strong start to the season and surrendered a two-goal lead when drawing with Watford last time out.

Tony Pulis was left sickened by a last-gasp equaliser, stating: “When you’re playing into the 95th minute of four minutes’ added time and they score, that’s very hard to take.”

Defender Jonny Evans added: “We had a good start to the season and we’ve tailed off a bit maybe. But it’s still early days. We have nine points, which is something we can build on.”

The Baggies will take heart from their record at the King Power Stadium, having secured two wins and a draw from their last three visits here.

Looking at the Leicester vs West Brom odds, 4/5 for Albion to avoid defeat again is sure to attract support.
