leicester betting tips and odds 2

Leicester City is one of the clubs outside the “Traditional Big Six” sides that are threatening to break through into that group. Ever since their 2015/2016 campaign which saw them win the Premier League in the most shocking way, Leicester City have consistently threatened to break into the top 6. Under Brendan Rodgers, they seem primed to challenge for the European spots once more having qualified for the Europa League again this season. How will they fare though? With an ageing Johnny Evans and Jamie Vardy, will they have sufficient experience and firepower to mix it up with the big boys? 

Leicester City Tactics, Principles and Squad Analysis

Under Brendan Rodgers, Leicester City have a pure style of play. They work hard off the ball to pinch it off opposition players, have the likes of Tielemann and Ndidi to progress the ball onto the quick and skillful forwards such as Vardy, Barnes and Maddison and take advantage of the opposition team’s weaknesses in transition. They do this in a manner that’s pleasing to the eye with pace, flair, and efficiency. At the back, they can be quite dominant with the likes of Caglar Soyuncu, Johnny Evans and Wesley Fofana as well, backed up with Premier League winner Kasper Schmeichel who provides a solid defensive foundation.

Leicester City Premier League Predictions: What to expect

Brendan Rodgers managed to get Leicester City to qualify for the Europa League albeit with negativity surrounding that achievement. The Foxes were so close to qualifying for the top 4 and came to the last matchday before missing out to Chelsea. Brendan Rodgers will find it difficult again this season considering the demanding schedule and travel obligations of the Europa League. Having signed five new 1st team players, Leicester City will hope to improve on their last season’s finish and qualify for the top 4 this season. You can expect them to be in and amongst the top 6 or top 7 as they mount a European spot challenge. Anything beyond that would be close to the 15/16 season miracle. (Click to read our latest premier league betting tips and predictions for today and tomorrow).

As such, Bet365 has placed a 500/2 betting odds for Brendan Rodgers and his men to win the Premier League this season and we’d say that’s about fitting. 

Leicester City Europa League Predictions: What to expect

Leicester City is an ambitious club with ambitious owners who have always wanted to see the club challenge in Europe. So far however, Leicester City have shown time and again that they are good enough to reach the European spots but not quite at the level required to mount a challenge in Europe. They’ll look to change that this season after making smart purchases in the summer for the likes of Patson Daka, Ademola Lookman, Jannik Vestergaard and Boubakare Soumare who will add the requisite amount of depth needed to sustain a real challenge.

With that in mind, Bet365 seem to share our view that the Foxes could be one of the Europa League favourites with odds of 14/2 to win the competition and label them as one of if not the outright favourites. (Read our latest Europa League Betting tips, odds, and predictions).

Leicester City FA Cup Predictions: What to expect

A Europa League club will always have the dilemma of prioritization. The FA Cup is not an easy competition to win, which could require some level of good fortune. With the traditional top sides looking to rotate their squads more often than not, it gives Brendan Rodgers an opportunity to still earn European qualification. We expect a decent run in this competition for the Foxes, with a possible quarter-final or even semi-final exit. (Read our latest FA CUP Betting tips, odds, and predictions).

Chances of them winning aren’t too bad to be fair with Bet365 placing them at 14/2 to be crowned champions of the oldest competition in the world. 

Leicester City Carabao Cup Predictions: What to expect

The Foxes currently have some interesting aspects about their team. Namely, they’ve spent quite some money on young and quality squad players that would help them compete farther in competitions such as the Carabao Cup. With Boubakare Soumare, Patson Daka, and Ademola Lookman, they are building a team with sufficient depth to take care of the games against the smaller sides from the lower leagues and should they face a traditionally bigger side, they can call on the star players to win the games.

The Foxes have been handed favourable odds with 8/2 to win the competition but the Carabao Cup has traditionally gone to the biggest teams in the Premier League and despite a decent run, they will most likely get knocked out at the latter stages.
