Leicester v Brighton betting tips: Foxes likely to go strong
Leicester v Brighton betting tips and odds
FA Cup holders Leicester are on the hunt for more silverware as they take on Brighton in the fourth round of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
The Foxes are on a decent run of form having beaten Manchester United and Brentford either side of a thrilling Europa League comeback victory at Spartak Moscow where Patson Daka scored all four goals.
City are evens to book a place in the quarter-finals inside 90 minutes but let’s pick out some of the other markets and odds in our Leicester v Brighton betting tips.
Just one point separates these two teams in the Premier League table following Brighton’s 4-1 home defeat by champions Manchester City.
But the fifth-placed Seagulls beat Leicester 2-1 when the teams met at the Amex Stadium last month and are 13/5 to repeat that win or 18/5 to win and under 3.5 match goals.
However, manager Graham Potter played a completely different starting XI from the side that beat Swansea three days after the win against the Foxes, who put out a reasonably strong team for the 2-0 win at Millwall in the third round.
Brighton were fortunate to beat Leicester, who had two efforts ruled out for offside and conceded a controversial penalty, so the hosts look an interesting prospect to avenge that defeat.
They can be backed at 7/4 for a victory and under 3.5 goals bearing in mind 10 of the Seagulls’ 11 games in all competitions have involved three goals or fewer.
Good to see Solly back in the starting XI. 👊

Last season, City won all three games against Brighton in this manner, two of which they won without conceding so we go 5/2 on a home win to nil, although only Newcastle have a better both teams to score record than Leicester in the current campaign.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are 27/10 to win and concede or 11/2 to win on penalties, the same price for the visitors, while a 2-1 win for the hosts is 7/1 as one of Wednesday’s Leicester v Brighton betting tips.
The last two meetings between these clubs have ended 2-1, so both teams to score, over 2.5 goals and either team to win is 6/4.
Rodgers deployed a 3-4-1-2 at Brentford in which James Maddison played behind Jamie Vardy and Kelechi Iheanacho but Daka is likely to take one of the starting spots up front alongside Ademola Lookman.
Turkey defender Caglar Soyuncu was hooked after a poor display in west London and could be replaced by Jannik Vestergaard while the likes of Harvey Barnes, Kieran Dewsbury-Hall, Hamza Choudhury and Ayoze Perez are all pushing for starting roles.

Midfielder Marc Albrighton missed Saturday’s game at Brentford after he was on the end of a poor challenge in Moscow.
Potter is likely to make wholesale changes again but he has plenty of options with Tariq Lamptey, Enock Mwepu and Alexis Mac Allister all making an impact against Manchester City.
Daka is 7/2 to net the opening goal or 13/10 to score any time on Wednesday and Barnes is 5/1 and 2/1 in the equivalent markets.
Aaron Connolly could start up front for the Seagulls and is 13/2 to break the deadlock or 5/2 to score but Mac Allister looks an interesting option at 4/1 having netted from the spot against City as a second-half substitute.
