Leicester vs Birmingham Prediction
Leicester is in a bad form in the Premier League right now. Their miseries have piled since their star striker James Vardy is out due to injury for a couple of matches. It is not likely for him to appear against Birmingham.
Even though Brendan Rogers has work to do in his playing eleven, he will not be concerned about facing a Championship side, especially at home.
Leicester is on a five-game winless run following a 1-0 loss on the road against Norwich in their prior encounter in the Premier League.
However, they have lost at King Power only thrice in their last ten home matches across all major competitions in their schedule.
Birmingham, on the other hand, is unbeaten in their recent ten matches with 7 draws in it. Their last four matches ended in a draw following a 2-2 draw away from home with QPR in their previous match.
The visitors have recorded four wins in their prior ten matches on the road in all major contests except the club friendlies.
It has to be noted that the host is unbeaten in their last five meetings. Since Birmingham has not won any of their visits after their 2007 win, the odds are against the traveling side in the clash.
There are not many tips in the match as the home win is at 1.22 odds which will not give any returns. The better option will be to go with Leicester to win with a -1 handicap at 1.66. Along with that, over 2.5 goals at 1.50 is also a probability in the match.
