Chelsea vs Leicester Predictions and Betting Tips: Premier League Preview
Chelsea vs Leicester Predictions and Betting Tips: Premier League Preview Chelsea vs Leicester predictions and Premier League betting tips for this weekend’s fixture. Kick-off is 15:00 on Saturday 22nd December and the home side will be looking to make up ground on the three sides currently above them.
Expert Tipster Prediction: Chelsea’s defence has been far from rock solid this season but they’re up against a Leicester side that has struggled for goals of late. I can see the Foxes’ attacking woes easing at Stamford Bridge this weekend and fancy a few goals as a result.[inline_advert ad=”1″]
Chelsea vs Leicester Predictions
A win for Chelsea here would see the Blues end the evening in third place and leapfrog Spurs, who play on Sunday. Maurizio Sarri’s men have faltered slightly in recent weeks and so a visit from Leicester should be fairly well received given the latter’s own struggles of late. It’s a good opportunity for Chelsea to strengthen their position among the Champions League places and I think they’ll take all three points – but I do see Leicester scoring too. The home side have conceded in three of their last four matches and I can certainly see them doing that again, on route to a much-needed victory.
Chelsea vs Leicester Betting Tips
These days, barely a week goes by without a newspaper or media source linking Eden Hazard away from Stamford Bridge. There’s no doubt he’s been one of the most consistent performers in the Premier League over the past three seasons although there have been question marks about his ability to deliver against the division’s top sides. Leicester, for all their qualities, don’t fall into this bracket and if Hazard is in the mood it could be a long afternoon for the Foxes’ rear guard. Not many firms go odds-against on the Belgian scoring anytime, but Betway do. Certainly worthy of a second thought.

This one goes slightly against form as far as Leicester are concerned but I can’t ignore it based on price alone. Despite the away side finding it difficult to make an impact in the final third of late, I think the fact they have nothing to lose on Saturday could play into their hands. Very few people envisage Leicester heading back up the M1 with any points to show for their efforts so by that rationale they could go for it. Chelsea have scored two or more in five of their last six outings but also concede fairly regularly despite keeping the odd clean sheet here and there. I can see this one being a decent spectacle and producing a few goals in stark contrast to the bookies’ prices, so time will tell whether odds just shy of 2/1 prove good value on four goals or more.
What are the odds for Chelsea vs Leicester to serve up four goals or more? 9/5 with William Hill[global_advert id=”37963″]
Chelsea vs Leicester Betting Odds
Chelsea to win – 1/3
Draw – 9/2
Leicester to win – 10/1.
The Blues are strong favourites on Saturday which is unsurprising given that they are unbeaten at home so far this campaign. The handicap market, as is often the case, is the place to look if you’re looking for more value on Chelsea emerging victorious. Most firms are around even money on the Londoners winning -1.
It’s difficult to truly fancy Leicester given that they’ve won just three of their nine matches on the road up till now. Will this change? Possibly, but we’d want odds of longer than 10/1 for us to be tempted to get involved!
