Match Preview

Leicester City were dealt a tough opening set of Premier League fixtures with games against Arsenal, Man Utd, Chelsea and Liverpool scheduled within the first couple months of the season. After such a difficult start, it’s no surprise to see them languishing just one spot above the relegation zone ahead of today’s Leicester City vs West Bromwich Albion preview. The Foxes have picked up just one win from seven league matches, though Monday’s clash is the start of a more winnable run of games.

City’s problems have been in forward areas, they have scored one or fewer goals in four of their seven outings in the Premiership thus far. Their opponents on Monday, West Bromwich Albion, have had their own troubles in the goal getting department – they have netted just six times in their seven league matches. The Baggies haven’t won a game since the end of August, that’s six fixtures without a victory as we approach this week’s Leicester City vs West Bromwich Albion betting tips.

The Baggies haven’t tasted defeat away to City in their last eight visits, which is a remarkable record given the standing of the respective clubs. However, more recently the Foxes have won three of five meetings with West Brom, a sequence that includes a 1-0 win at the Hawthorns as recently as April.

Leicester City vs West Bromwich Albion Prediction and Betting Advice

The home team in our free OddsDigger Leicester City vs West Bromwich Albion bets may have begun their new campaign in less than ideal fashion, but they have maintained a strong record at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes have been beaten just three times in sixteen in front of their noisy supporters, their only losses in that time coming against big hitters Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea and Liverpool.

Tony Pulis has a reputation for building dogged, physical teams who tend to excel at home and suffer on the road. This WBA outfit follows that pattern – they have won just one Premier League away game in twelve. Their inability to transfer their decent home form over to their away contests makes them the justifiable underdogs in the weekend football odds. Bet365 are the bookies of choice for our opening free pick. They have terrific value right across the board.

The Baggies are usually involved in some of the least exciting Premiership matches each week. Tony Pulis tends to play a reductive, direct style of football that is heavily reliant on set pieces. The end result of those tactics is a little action for supporters to enjoy. Five of their last seven EPL duels prior to our Leicester City vs West Bromwich Albion predictions have ended with under 2.5 goals.

Three of the Foxes last four matches also finished under the 2.5 goal mark. They have only managed to score more than two in a game once this season, that was in their opening weekend 3-4 loss at the Emirates against Arsenal. With both clubs lacking in confidence and quality in forward areas, it makes sense to back our soccer predictions. We recommend you do so with Bet-at-home who have odds of sensational value.
