Leicester City v Chelsea Premier League Betting Preview 19/01/2021
Most football fans will agree that this season so far has been unpredictable and exciting as it has thrown up many different surprises in the English Premier League. Leicester City sitting 3rd in the Premier League table is probably a bit of a shock as they sit above Liverpool who are the defending league champions. It could also be argued that Manchester United wouldn’t be expected to be sitting top of the league either at this time so we have had many eye-opening surprises so far. This has made the betting even more difficult as well but in our Leicester City v Chelsea Premier League Betting Preview 19/01/2021 we hope we can at least find a couple of winning betting tips, with decent betting value as well.
Leicester City host Chelsea on Tuesday night, 19th January 2021, kicking off at 20.15, with the game being broadcast live on Sky Sports. Over the years this game has had a competitive rivalry but this season it is even more interesting with both teams having an eye on the title race and a top 4 finish to secure Champions League football next season. It does make for an interesting match and also a very interesting betting fixture, so we are going to run through the match and hopefully find some bets that have good betting value and a good chance of winning.
The first betting market to look at is probably quite obvious, the match winner market, and straight away we think we’ve found a decent bet to take on the bookies with. Currently, for a Leicester home win Unibet are the standout bookmaker with the best betting odds of 41/20, which we think is great value for a team in the form of Leicester, and that is our first bet. Vbet are currently the best bookie to bet with for a Chelsea win as they have odds of 24/17. If you fancy the draw then you should head to RedZone as they are currently offering the best betting price of 11/4. We do recommend betting on a Leicester win though in this match and we think 41/20 offers some great value.
Although we do expect a Leicester City win we don’t think they will manage to keep a clean sheet and do expect both teams to score. Unfortunately the betting odds are not great in the Both Teams To Score market with the best odds being 5/7 with SportNation. That doesn’t really appeal to us, however you can double that up with a Leicester win and look at the Match Result and Both Teams To Score betting market. Here you can pick Leicester to win and both teams to score and get betting odds of 9/2 with William Hill. We do like the look of that bet and will be betting on that ourselves, as we do with all our betting tips.
Another betting market we like the look of, and think we have found some betting value with the bookies is the correct score betting. This bet does align with our other bets so it may not interest as many people but we do think it is a bet that is worth taking on. At 11/1 with Bet365 we will also be betting on the correct score of Leicester City to win 2-1.
Over the last few years and the evolution of request a bet services and bet builder it has opened the betting up so much more and punters can take on the bookmakers like they never could before. This has also made placing some bets more fun and can really make a game a lot more interesting. We found 2 bets that stood out and could not only be good value but also good fun. Both bets revolve around Leicester’s holding midfielder Wilfred Ndidi. The first bet is with William Hill and is for Ndidi to make more than 5 tackles in the game and Chelsea left back Ben Chillwell to make more than 1. You can get odds of 4/1 with William Hill for this and it certainly appeals. Another bet we like is a bit more adventurous but again, we think it has value if for Ndidi to make more than 5 tackles and Chelsea midfielder NGolo Kante to make more than 4 tackles in the match. Again, you should head to William Hill for this bet and take the betting odds of 10/1 they are offering.
