West Ham vs Leicester City Preview
Who would have thought when this bizarre season started that West Ham vs Leicester City with just a handful of games to go would be a match fourth vs third? It’s been a strange year, and we’re expecting an unpredictable clash at the London Stadium when the Foxes come to visit.
If Jesse Lingard can find his form again, we’re expecting goals from this West Ham team, who seem to be doing just fine without star midfielder Declan Rice. If they can shore up their defence that almost cost them another three-goal lead against Wolves, they’ve got a very solid shot at getting a vital win here in the race for Champions League qualification.
For Leicester City, they won’t be too disheartened with last weekend’s loss at home to champions-elect Man City. Jamie Vardy even found the net during that match, but the offside flag cost him a goal that would have given them an early lead.

West Ham vs Leicester City betting tips
Odds are correct at the time of publication and are subject to change.
West Ham to win, draw no bet – 21/20
There’s a solid chance that neither one of these sides will be able to figure the other out, despite the fact that we’re predicting goals. With a simple West Ham to win bet coming in at 19/10, we think that this market provides a good safety net on what is a pretty strong pick. Leicester will be favourites, and might be worth having a look at with this stipulation at 10/13. A draw wouldn’t be ideal for the Hammers, but it would hold them in good stead heading into the final few games of the year, especially if Crystal Palace can do them a similar favour to West Brom last week against Chelsea and Manchester United get the better of Spurs.
Jamie Vardy to score anytime – 9/5
He’s one of the top strikers in the country, and we could definitely see Jamie Vardy get on the scoresheet again this weekend. He’s more or less averaging a goal every two games at the minute, and looks back to his best after a few niggles earlier in the season, so this seems like a good bet. He’s 9/2 in both the first and last goalscorer markets, but why not give yourself a safety net?
Leicester to win & both teams to score – 10/3
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, we are predicting goals in this game! This price makes betting on Leicester a much better choice, as both sides have struggled defensively against bigger teams this year, so we could definitely see a 2-1 or 3-2 win for the visitors.
