Leicester v Southampton Betting Preview: Saints to be outfoxed by the Foxes

Leicester will face a real test of their title credentials as Southampton visit the King Power Stadium in the early Premier League kick-off on Sunday. The Foxes have coped well with the pressure of the title race so far and have a five point lead over second place Spurs, who face a tough trip to Anfield on Saturday.

The Foxes form has been good, as Claudio Ranieri’s side have won four out of their last five Premier League games. The side from the Midlands have kept clean sheets in four of those games as well. The home side can be backed to win this clash at odds of 13/10 with BetVictor.

Algerian midfielder Riyad Mahrez has been in outstanding form this season, scoring 16 goals and producing 11 assists for the Foxes. He can be backed at odds of 11/4 with Bet365 to find the net at any time this clash.

Southampton have enjoyed an inconsistent campaign, but currently sit seventh in the Premier League table. Consecutive wins in the top-flight have put the Saints just four behind fourth-place Manchester City.

Last time out they came back from two goals down to beat Liverpool 3-2 at St Marys, with Sadio Mane bagging a brace and Graziano Pelle also getting on the scoresheet.

Pelle seems to have hit form of late, scoring three times and bagging three assists in his last two appearances for the Saints. The Italian can be backed at odds of 7/1 with Paddy Power to open the scoring in this clash, which is not a terrible bet.

Big Tip

Southampton will not be an easy opponent for the Foxes, but I think they may just grind out another win in this clash. I also fancy Jamie Vardy to score first. You can back a Leicester win and Vardy to score first at odds of 15/7 Paddy Power.
