Leicester will be keen to bounce back from a surprise home loss to Southampton when visiting Burnley in Sunday’s televised Premier League clash.
The Foxes did win their last two away games at West Ham and Newcastle, while the struggling Clarets have suffered four straight defeats in this competition.
Sean Dyche’s side have picked up just one point out of a possible 33 when facing teams in the top half of the table this season.
That makes 83/100 for an away win hard to oppose for our initial Burnley vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At Burnley’s Betting Odds
Burnley recently enjoyed a 4-2 FA Cup triumph over Peterborough at Turf Moor, but that proved a brief respite from their league woes before going down 3-0 at Chelsea.
“Overall, they were too good,” admitted Dyche. “I have no question with the result, they were too strong for us.
“We’ve hit a tough spell and that’s the Premier League, it creeps up on you.
“Often, it’s a double-edged sword of winning games brings confidence, but you need confidence to win games.”
A New Year’s Day defeat against Aston Villa at this venue was particularly damaging and Burnley have been dragged into a relegation battle.
The Clarets haven’t scored a first-half goal in 10 league games, so 37/20 for them to be losing at the break and full-time stands out from the Burnley vs Leicester odds.
Last Burnley line-up: Pope, Lowton, Taylor, Tarkowski, Mee, Cork, McNeil, Hendrick, Westwood, Lennon, Wood.
Jay Rodriguez hopes to return for the Clarets after illness and fellow forward Chris Wood is available despite breaking his nose at Chelsea.
Winger Robbie Brady could be in the squad after a calf injury and illness but Ashley Barnes (hernia) is sidelined and Johann Berg Gudmundsson (hamstring) is still out.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Brendan Rodgers took a pragmatic approach to Leicester’s 2-1 loss to Southampton at King Power Stadium.
Despite Dennis Praet scoring his first goal for City since an £18million move from Sampdoria in August, Saints fought back to make it four wins from their last five league matches.
Rodgers refused to blame a hectic schedule, which included a Carabao Cup semi-final first-leg clash with Aston Villa three days earlier.
“I don’t really want to use that because if we are going to succeed then we have to have that robustness, that strength to keep going and going,” said Rodgers.
“The players have been brilliant up until this point, so it’s a sore one, but we will go away and they can recover a little bit now, physically and emotionally.
“And like we’ve always done, any time we’ve had a defeat, we’ll analyse it, the details, where we can be better, and we will look to improve and get three points in our next game.
“The clear week ahead will help us to do that.”
The Foxes are well suited to performing on the road, boasting seven wins away and the same number at home, but scoring seven more goals on their travels.
We think City are worth sticking with, so 17/10 for an away win and over 2.5 goals is added to our Burnley vs Leicester betting tips, along with 27/2 for a 3-1 scoreline.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Soyuncu, Evans, Pereira, Maddison, Barnes, Choudhury, Praet, Vardy, Perez.
Leicester defender Wes Morgan’s groin injury is to be assessed. Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is back in training after undergoing a minor knee operation, but is not ready to return to action.
