Leicester vs Brighton Predictions
The Foxes thought they had clinched a win against struggling Watford with a late screamer from left-back Ben Chilwell. Sadly for them, Watford clapped back immediately with a stoppage-time bicycle kick from center-back Craig Dawson.
Just two wins in nine is worrying form for the Champions League hopefuls. During that period, their previously watertight defence has conceded with increasing regularity, managing just two shutouts.
Jamie Vardy’s goalscoring form has also taken a dip of late. The former England international has netted in just one of his last 12 games.
Ricardo Pereira is likely to miss the rest of the season. Dennis Praet is a doubt.
Brighton’s last gasp winner against Arsenal secured a potentially crucial three points for the Seagulls. Those three points take them up to 15th in the league, five points clear of the drop with just eight games remaining.
Their first game after the restart saw over 2.5 goals, breaking a trend of low scoring affairs. Brighton had previously seen over 2.5 goals in just two of their last ten.
Neal Maupay’s winner continues a decent first Premier League season for the Frenchman. He is now just one goal shy of double figures in the league.
José Izquierdo is Brighton’s only absentee for this game at the time of writing.
This could be a really close affair and one goal could be enough to win it, however, for the first of the predictions on this match I’m going for under 2.5 goals to be scored. The best odds for this tip are 10/11 and you can use the Bet Victor £30 welcome bonus to bet on this.

Foxes to scrape a victory
Leicester have surrendered leads far too often in the second half of the season. Their draw with Watford was the third time they had dropped points in 12 games against the bottom seven.
The Foxes should edge a tight contest and hold on for all three points as they did in the reverse 2-0 win.
It could be that this is a closer match-up and a 1-0 correct score prediction looks a good bet here. At the time of writing, the best odds available were at bet365 where you can collect their up to £100 in bet credits sign-up bonus to spend this week.
