Team News – Leicester
Leicester kick-off the weekend level with the relegation zone, five points ahead of Crystal Palace, who have been shocking, and two goals better than Swansea in 18th. Another tough season lies ahead for fans, we expect. They’ve managed just one win and two draws from seven, but on a positive note, have drawn two of their last three, including a goalless end away to Bournemouth last time out.
A very winnable match, The Foxes had to settle for a share, and on the balance of play, a point was probably more than Leicester deserved. Bournemouth had over 60% of the match possession, missing a host of chances, while limiting their opponents to just one shot on target. Yes, that’s one shot on goal in over 90 minutes of play, which is nothing better than shocking. Craig Shakespeare looked downbeat at the end, labelling it a hard-earned draw. He did say he expected better from his boys, and knows they are capable of giving it.
Will Leicester improve enough to win on Monday? Well, they’ll have to score to achieve that, but Betfred expect them to get at least one, offering no better than 1/4. Short, but that’s top price. If you’d prefer a bigger quote, Leicester to draw another blank is 3/1 with the same firm. Punters with a touch more confidence in the home dressing room will find local cheer circling the parade ring at 21/20, best when doing business with bet365.

Team News – West Brom
West Brom also finished level last time out, but there was a lot more for fans to talk about at the conclusion, playing out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Watford at The Hawthorns. A decent way to end the month, sending them into the international break with plenty to think about, but confidence to build on. Goals from Rondon and Evans had The Baggies 2-0 up, but they fell apart, conceding to Doucoure and a very late Richarlison equaliser.
The fourth goal that day came deep into stoppage-time, 95 minutes on the clock. There was no argument when the winner was also awarded man of the match, the Brazilian giving West Brom a real headache from start to finish. Johnny Evans spoke to the press afterwards, explaining there’s a feeling in the camp that they have tailed off after a strong start. He did think the nine points gave them something to build on.
Another three here would certainly sit well in the dressing room, but West Brom face an uphill struggle to get it, according to bookmakers. An away win on Monday has been written off, an upset at the King Power 3/1 with most firms. Bet365 do offer a bit more value, 16/5 their quote. There’s not a lot in this one, so I wouldn’t be in a rush to put you off a play at the bigger price. There’s certainly nothing to lose if you want to target the value.
Leicester vs West Brom – Premier League Tips and Betting Predictions
I make West Brom more than good enough to win this. A crossroads match, three points would send one side up towards midtable, the losers facing a winter battle stuck down at the wrong end. The Baggies make far more sense from a value perspective, but I’ll take them +1 on the handicap at 5/6, best offer when investing your cash at Betfair. One for your accumulators, it should pull its weight.
With both sides drawing last time out, we’ll take a pop at 1-1 in the correct score market, which will see the profits from 6/1 (William Hill) dropped into our account, if we’re onto something. That’s favourite in the market, which comes as no surprise. There’s been no more than one goal between these sides in their last six, and this will be tight again.
