Shark Bites
  • The reverse fixture finished 0-0 back on December 29 at King Power Stadium.
  • There has been three or more goals scored in 10 of City’s 12 home games in the PL this season.
  • Leicester is the top road team in the league with 25 points from 12 matches this season.

At online shop Bovada, City is a big fave at -180 against the league leaders, who come in at +450. The Draw is currently +335. The total is set at 3 goals with OVER at +105 and UNDER presently -135.

The stubborn Foxes just won’t relinquish the No. 1 position in the table and are coming off a great 2-0 victory against Liverpool midweek. They are unbeaten in their last six contests and have managed to keep a clean sheet in five of those. Jamie Vardy bagged two goals in the win against Liverpool, putting his league-leading total at 18 heading into the weekend.

Manchester City traveled to Sunderland and, predictably, left with all three points midweek. Sergio Aguero scored a 15’ goal for the Citizens and they held on from there, despite the best effort of the Black Cats.

While both teams should be gunning for a full three points in this one, Claudio Ranieri and the Foxes will be keen to open a comfortable six-point lead over the Citizens. If they are successful, it will be a big boost to Leicester’s already storybook Premier League campaign.
