Leicester v Crystal Palace Betting Tips & Predictions

Despite just four points from the first nine Premier League matches, Leicester are 7/5 favourites for the visit of Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Hopes that their win over Nottingham Forest would kick start their season have proved to be short-lived, as Leicester fell to a 2-1 defeat away to Bournemouth last weekend.

The Foxes have lost seven of nine in the Premier League, and face a Crystal Palace team which took all three points against Leeds last time out.

Leicester have won their last three home matches against Palace, who have taken just two points from three away matches in 2022-23.

Double Chance: Crystal Palace Or Draw

4/6 (William Hill)

Crystal Palace led at Manchester City, drew at Liverpool and were drawing with Chelsea until a last-minute strike from Conor Gallagher.

Palace are at their best when given space to attack, and Leicester will provide that luxury.

They are comfortable absorbing pressure, and will be able to fly at this unsettled Leicester defence with direct play and plenty of ball carriers.

There’s value backing Patrick Vieira’s side to avoid defeat at the King Power. 

Both Teams To Score: Yes

4/6 (Bet365)

Both teams have scored in seven of Leicester’s nine Premier League matches. It’s six of eight for Crystal Palace. There is an abundance of attacking talent on display, and these two sides both place in the bottom six by expected goals against. 

This has landed in the last four meetings between the two sides. An open game is to be expected, with opportunities for Wilfried Zaha, James Maddison and others to create goalscoring chances.

Anytime Goalscorer: Patson Daka

2/1 (Bet365)

Patson Daka ranks in the 84th percentile in expected goals per 90 over the last 365 days. Daka has three goals in three Premier League starts this term too. All three of those goals have come in the last four games. 

Having totalled eight shots over his last three starts, Daka has shown great instincts in the box and his movement can cause problems for even the best defences.

This is a great price on the Zambian to continue his hot streak.
