28th Dec: Leicester City vs Liverpool Betting Preview

The Premier League football comes thick and fast at this time of year and with another four Premier League games today it was tough to work out which game offered us some good value for us to preview.

We have decided to take a deeper look into the Leicester vs Liverpool game today as there are a few interesting angles in this one.

Leicester are on an odd run at the moment they are scoring highly but failing to claim any points a great example coming in their last game where they managed three goals against league leaders Manchester City but still lost by three goals 6-3. In the game before that they put three first half goals past Liverpool in the cup and still failed to win that game, eventually losing on penalties. Their last win came in the game that preceeded their cup encounter with Liverpool where they handsomely beat Newcastle 4-0.

It is safe to say that Leicester are a team that can score goals and that makes them dangerous. 

Their opponents today Liverpool have not had a match since that cup tie with Leicester last week due to their Christmas game getting postponed due to Covid. It is interesting to see that on the whole the teams that are coming back to matches following a postponed game are actually struggling versus teams that have not been on a break.

Liverpool and specifically Mo Salah have been in fine form recently and it is hard to go against them in games but as Salah gets ready to head of to AFCON there could be some changes in the mix for Jurgen Klopp to trial in this game.

Brendon Rogers will likely have to tinker with his team as well due to an increase in injuries that could see a switch in how they set themselves up for this game. 

Leicester won this fixture last season and we feel they are unfairly priced at odds of 8.50 to win this one so there is some value there for people that want to take a punt.

Our standout value tip for this one though is actually:

Tip: Leicester City or Draw (Double Chance)


The bookies have gone too heavy on a Liverpool win in this game and with Leicester scoring well and Liverpool struggling to keep teams out there will come a game where Mo Salah can't outscore the opposition and we see that game coming today.
