Betting. Leicester vs Chelsea [20.09.16] : the crossfire

League Cup

Round of 32


Bet: Both Teams to Score

Leicester definitely couldn’t have been satisfied with their performance at the start of the new season. The Foxes have failed to win the Community Shield and then have lost points in the first two Premier League games. Contrary to all sports betting predictions last-year champion was defeated by a newly promoted Hull City (1-2) and then drew blank with Arsenal (0-0). However, Claudio Ranieri found a way to motivate his team and despite the loss to Liverpool (1-4) they managed to overcome Swansea (2-1) and Burnley (3-0). Moreover, the Foxes made their debut in Champions League where they were not considered as favorites by betting companies, but they did well and tore apart Brugge (3-0).

While choosing a bet you should take into account the fact that Leicester make their entry to the League Cup at the third round stage while Chelsea have already played against Bristol Rovers (3-2). If we take a look at the head-to-head statistics we will see that last season, in the Premier League the Blues got only one point from their two matches against the Foxes. However, the Londoners lost only one game of their last ten meetings in all competitions. It is also important to mention that Ranieri is likely to give some rest to his most valuable players who are involved not only in Premier League fixtures, but also in Champions League games. So Leicester probably will not be at the full strength, but sports betting experts think that the players who will get a chance to play on Tuesday will be really motivated to prove their value.

The bookmakers consider guests to be a slight favorites: Leicester – 3,25, Draw – 3,45, Chelsea – 2,20. If you believe that Chelsea is too shaky at the moment you can bet on Double Chance: Leicester or Draw (1,69). However, it is better to pay attention to the fact that the bet Both Teams to Score (1,64) got through in five of their last six meetings. In addition, both teams have problems in defense lines and their last match in League Cup was rich on goals (Chelsea won 4-3) that is why Total Goals over 2,5 (1,79) is certainly worth your attention.
