Leicester vs. Liverpool Betting Tips: Andy Robertson backed in passes market
Relegation contenders Leicester City host top-four chasing Liverpool in their penultimate home game of the Premier League season, live on Sky Sports Main Event on Monday night at 8pm.
Dean Woodward previews the clash and provides his best two picks...
Leicester City come into the match on the back of a demoralising 5-3 defeat to Fulham, which leaves them two points from safety in the relegation zone.
Leicester's attack has been promising however, scoring in nine of their last ten matches, including against Manchester City, but the team has not kept a Premier League clean sheet in 20 games.
The Foxes' need for a third straight home win over Liverpool is desperate, with Newcastle United and a resurgent West Ham United to come in their final two games.
Leicester will be without Ryan Bertrand, James Justin, Jannik Vestergaard, and Kelechi Iheanacho. Despite Iheanacho being ahead of schedule in his recuperation, it's unlikely he will see any action against Liverpool.
Leicester will likely make changes after their 5-3 defeat by Fulham, with Tete, Patson Daka, Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, and Ricardo Pereira all in contention for a start.
Liverpool will be seeking a seventh successive Premier League win to continue their end-of-season surge for a top four finish.
The Reds won their last match against Brentford 1-0, with Mohamed Salah scoring his 19th Premier League goal of the season and his 100th at Anfield in all competitions.
While Liverpool's hot streak is impressive, their last five triumphs have come by just one goal since their 6-1 demolition of Leeds.
Liverpool will be without Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita, with both suffering from muscular problems. Jordan Henderson could be in line for a first XI recall, while Luis Diaz will be looking for his third start since returning from injury and may come in for Darwin Nunez.
Leicester vs Liverpool Tips
Against a low-pressing Leicester side this line looks rather generous for Andy Robertson, a line he has cleared by some distance in four of his last five outings.
With Trent switching to the fluid RB/RCM role, they both have seen a huge increase in passes, with Robertson registering: 87, 97, 106, 107 and 39.
There are also some very big numbers against this Leicester side, with Laporte hitting 108 passes and Mings hitting 91 in recent matches, with the likes of Fulham and Bournemouth defenders also managing to register over 50 passes even though winning against Leicester.
With such impressive numbers of late and bet365 giving us the option of taking higher lines, it seems criminal to not take a smaller stake on a higher line such as over 76.5 passes at 10/3.
These odds imply less than a 25% chance of landing which I think has been heavily underestimated given the recent numbers and the low press of Leicester.
This line has also been comfortably cleared by the Scot in four of his last five, if the game stays relatively close, it could quite easily romp home yet again.
