The weekend for Premier League lovers is once again special: lots of exciting games that could completely mess up the standings. Leicester and Chelsea face each other in the late stage of the championship, seeking a better position to take the pressure off their backs.

The hosts have lost three games in a row and are in 15th place in the Premier League. The visitors, despite the large investment they have made, are only in 10th place and need to give an immediate return to the team’s fans and investors, who expect a quick reaction from the Blues.


Saturday, March 11th – 10:30 AM ET at the King Power Stadium

Moneyline odds: 

Leicester +270

Chelsea +101

Where Can I Watch it? 


Why Bet on Leicester?

Leicester players and coaching staff will have a hard time convincing supporters that they will win this difficult match against Chelsea. This is due to Leicester losing their last three games and not playing good football.

The ghost of the relegation zone continues to frighten the team, which is only two points clear of Everton, 18th placed and first team with a ticket to the Championship.

If there is any hope of a positive result in Saturday’s game, this will certainly be the difficulty that Chelsea is facing in away games. Defeats and draws have been constant when the Blues play away from home and, therefore, the Foxes will be able to take advantage of this situation and count on the quality of James Maddison to win the game.

Why Bet on Chelsea?

Chelsea made a good comeback in the Champions League and beat Dortmund 2-0 to get to the quarterfinals. They also achieved what seemed impossible: scoring more than once in a match, and without an own-goal entering the equation (although they got lucky with the penalty, indeed). In the Premier League, the Blues beat Leeds 1-0, but that result did not convince their fans that victory will be a constant from now on.

Chelsea lacks chemistry and innovation. The high investments seem to have put a lot of pressure on the players, who have not been able to show their full potential on the pitch. The high price tags have been especially burdensome in players like Fernandez, Mudryck, and Cucurella, who don’t seem to get things straight and look mentally blocked at times.

Even with these difficulties, Chelsea still has world-class players such as Reece James, João Félix, and Kovacic at a good level. A team with these athletes can take some time to settle down, but it is encouraging to recognize that there is a lot of talent there.

Final Betting Analysis: Leicester vs. Chelsea

Leicester is a weird club and predicting their matches is a nightmare, especially at home. One day they are an absolute machine and destroy a team in Champions League qualification spots and the other they lose with the worst club in the division.

If we have to address a reason for their performance, apart from the internal issues regarding the owners spending in the last couple of years, from a pure football perspective they are unable to find a clear path and identity, and the inconsistencies of their players make things worst. The only athlete that has been standing out this season is Maddison, but his injuries are a constant issue.

Now, what can we say about this matchup with Chelsea then? Not much, just that the Londoners seem to be waking up and that is bad news for a team having the dropping positions breathing on their neck. Expect a close match and even a goal for the Foxes, but go for Chelsea’s victory.

If you put $100 into Chelsea’s win, you could get $101 back for a total payout of $201.
