Bet Prediction Best odds
BTTS? Yes 17/20
Correct score 1-2 43/5
First Goalscorer Reece James 22/1

With 11 games gone in the season Leicester will be disappointed to find themselves in 12th spot with an average record of four wins, three draws and four defeats.  They have gone two Premier League games without a victory and drew 1-1 with Leeds in their last fixture before the international break.  At home, the Foxes have been a mixed bag with two victories, one draw and two defeats.

Chelsea have made a dream start to the campaign with eight wins, two draws and just one defeat from their opening 11 with a three-point lead at the top.  Their four-game winning run came to an end just before the international break as they were held 1-1 against Burnley.  Away from Stamford Bridge, the London side have won four and drawn the other one at Anfield.

Leicester vs Chelsea Predictions

Leicester are conceding a lot of goals at the moment with six conceded in their last three at their own place in the Premier League.  Chelsea are averaging two goals per game on the road (ten from five) and backing them to go over 1.5 goals is the best bet here.

Reece James is flying for England and Chelsea and offers such an attacking outlet that he always needs to be respected in the anytime goalscorer markets.  He is as low as 4/1 in places so backing him at double-figure odds looks cracking value.
