Leicester vs Chelsea betting preview and predictions
Leicester returned back to winning ways at GW 24 with an emphatic 4-1 victory over West Ham. This was a welcomed boost to Foxes after two consecutive losses and weaker performances. Leicester have a 3-1-4 W-D-L record from the previous eight league matches. This is nothing special.
We have also seen some signs of weakness from the top scorer Jamie Vardy. He has missed a penalty and has not scored in nine Leicester matches (some of those Vardy has missed through injuries). The win over West Ham was an important one and Foxes also defeated strong Brentford in the FA Cup.
Chelsea progressed too in FA Cup by defeating Hull 1-2 at away soil. Blues haven’t been at their best recently and should have really won the previous two PL matches. First, Chelsea dropped points against Newcastle with a 90th-minute error and then they wasted twice the lead against 10-man Arsenal.
Chelsea and Leicester are clearly the next-best teams after the top two. There is a quality gap between them and Man Utd, Spurs and the rest of the pack. However, Leicester still don’t get the respect they should from the betting market.
We value Foxes as equals with Chelsea and see them as clear home favorites. We bet Leicester +0 (meaning DNB) handicap with 1.95 odds widely available.
Man Utd vs Wolves betting preview and predictions
Manchester United got the result they wanted from the FA Cup and trashed Tranmere 0-6 at away soil. This was a welcomed boost to Solskjaer’s men, who lost Burnley 0-2 at home in GW 24. United have actually lost three out of four PL matches in 2020 and all by 0-2 scoreline.
The home team has one major absence and that is the top scorer Marcus Rashford. He is a big blow, especially with Pogba out as well. It’s now up to Martial and Greenwood to take care of the scoring.
Manchester United have been actually pretty high-scoring recently. There have been just two matches in the entire season with less than two goals. Even in the recent games they have lost 0-2 there have been more than enough chances for United to score goals too.
Wolves have a similar record from low-scoring matches: there have been at least two goals in 22 of 24 league matches this season. One of those rare event was the season opener and other one was 1-0 away loss against Liverpool.
Wolves have 7 over 2.5 goal results from the previous 9 PL matches. Top scorer Raul Jimenez is back in form and they showed at GW 24 they can even threaten Liverpool.
The betting market gives nice odds for the over 2.5 goal result due to the absence of Rashford. We don’t buy this argument and we’ll bet O2.5 at 2.20 odds widely available.
Crystal Palace vs Sheffield United betting preview and predictions
Crystal Palace suffered a rare defeat in GW 24 against Southampton. Eagles lost deservedly 1-2, which was just the second loss in 11 matches and first in 6 matches. Palace have been very solid defensively despite suffering from injuries. Still, the betting market doesn’t give them enough credit.
Just two weeks ago Eagles even pulled a surprise against Manchester City and got a 2-2 away draw. They have also avoided defeats against Arsenal (twice) and Man Utd (won 1-2 at the Old Trafford). Palace is a good midtable side with a strong defense.
The same can be said about Sheffield United. There are few believed Blades to be this good defensively. Last round they couldn’t stop Manchester City entirely but lost only 0-1 FT at home. Sheffield United have only lost to Liverpool and Manchester City since early December.
The promoted team has also done well at away soil and there are no injuries. Everything looks fine and we shouldn’t expect this team to collapse in the near future.
Even if everything is fine for the visitors, we must take a stand against them. It is simply not possible that Crystal Palace would be underdogs at home against Sheffield United. These teams are basically equal in strength and this leads to a clear home favorite.
A low-scoring draw is close due to the nature of the teams, so we bet Palace +0 handicap (= DNB) at 2.15 odds widely available.
