Leicester v Burnley betting tips and odds

Leicester surged into the fourth round of the Carabao Cup with a 2-0 victory at Millwall during the week but they are back in Premier League action on Saturday when they meet winless Burnley.

These teams feature in our both teams to score preview in which goals at both ends can be backed at 5/6, but in terms of the match result the Foxes are undoubted favourites to win at 4/7.

The Clarets have picked up just one point from their five games, so let’s look at the markets and odds in our Leicester v Burnley betting tips.

Match Odds

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers was given a welcome headache in south London as goals from on-loan Ademola Lookman and Kelechi Iheanacho secured a fourth-round tie against Brighton.

City have had a mixed start to the season with two wins and three defeats but they have a good record in this fixture, winning four and drawing one of the last five.

Leicester beat the Clarets and conceded in the last two meetings at the King Power and are 23/10 to make it three in a row by that method.

Both of their wins this season have come by one-goal margins which is available at 5/2, while goals at both ends in the first half is 4/1 as one of our Leicester v Burnley betting tips.

That was the case in four of the previous contests between these clubs, all of which were 1-1 at the break – available at 15/2.

Burnley have netted exactly one goal in three of their five games, failing to score in the defeats by Livepool and Arsenal, so we go 6/4 on Sean Dyche’s side bagging exactly one goal this weekend.

Talking Tactics

Jamie Vardy was rested for Leicester’s game at the New Den and is expected to start the game on Saturday.

Youri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu and Wilfred Ndidi all played 90 minutes in midweek, so it remains to be seen whether they are in the starting line-up in a 4-3-3 formation which should see the returns of James Maddison, Harvey Barnes and Jannik Vestergaard amongst others.

Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez scored four goals in a 4-1 victory over Rochdale in the League Cup, so he may accompany Chris Wood in attack, although midfielder Josh Brownhill faces a race against time to recover from a knock.

Goalscorer Odds

Vardy and Iheanacho are 16/5 co-favourites to break the deadlock and 23/20 and 6/5 respectively to get on the scoresheet this weekend.

Barnes has scored in his last two appearances against Burnley and is 4/1 to grab the game’s first goal as he did at Turf Moor two seasons ago or 13/8 to find the net.

Chris Wood has opened the scoring in this fixture in the last two seasons and is 11/2 to repeat the trick or 21/10 to score, while Rodriguez is 7/2 to keep the momentum going.

Burnley centre-backs Ben Mee and James Tarkowski are always worth a look and they are priced at 14/1 and 18/1 to get on the scoresheet as the last of our Leicester v Burnley betting tips.
