Leicester vs. Norwich Predictions: Foxes to maul the Canaries
There are four Premier League games taking place on Wednesday, with the pick being Man City's away trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers. We will have match previews for all four games on site and here we've asked @OddsT3rrier to preview the match between Leicester City and Norwich City and he's given us his best two bets for tonight.
Leicester vs. Norwich Tips
Both these sides are in shocking form and to use the popular cliché 'are on the beach'. Norwich were relegated weeks ago now, have lost their last four straight and have only won once since January. Leicester haven't been much better of late, winless in five and have dropped down as far as 14th in the table. Whilst they should be more than safe from relegation, City and manager Brendan Rodgers will be worried by just how badly this season has tailed off. They were also knocked out of the Europa Conference league last week, which was their only route into Europe for next season. A match against rock bottom Norwich is something they will relish right now and the prospect of three relatively easy points.
Rodgers is missing Wilfred Ndidi, Ryan Bertrand and Ricardo Pereira, while it looks unlikely that James Maddison and James Justin will return in time.
Norwich are without at least five long term absentees but Christophe Zimmerman may be back in contention here.
My first pick is for Leicester to win with a goal handicap. The Foxes have had no difficulty scoring this season, scoring in 82% of their Premier League games. The same cannot be said about Norwich, who have managed a measly 22 goals this term.
Norwich have conceded at least two goals in 10 of their last 12 Premier League matches and failed to score in their last three matches.
With the attacking ability of Jamie Vardy, Patson Daka, Youri Tielemans and Kelechi Iheanacho, City should score at least two goals here against the hapless Canaries.
The last pick is a double down on our first pick. I'm taking the -2 Leicester handicap which is one I think they will cover. I've doubled that with Youri Tielemans to have a shot on target. He is 11/8 to do so at William Hill in comparison to just 8/13 at Paddy Power. Tielemans has six goals, 54 shots and 17 shots on target this season - 3rd in all these metrics for Leicester this season. He hasn't been as prolific since his return back to the team after injury but managed three shots and a shot on target last week against Everton and is up against worst opposition here.
