Leicester City - Leeds United Betting Preview: Expect two strong attacking line-ups to find the net

Brian McDermott's side travel to the Midlands to face the Foxes on Super Sunday, with our tipster backing goals galore in this promising Championship fixture
Leicester City host Leeds United this weekend, with both sides looking to make it three competitive wins out of their first three games.

Nigel Pearson’s men had to fight back from a goal down on the opening day of the season, beating Middlesbrough away from home. Brian McDermott’s side left it late against Brighton last Saturday too, with debutant Luke Murphy scoring an injury time winner to seal a 2-1 win.

Leicester come into this match after a late Sean St Ledger goal gave them victory in the League Cup against Wycombe midweek.

Pearson’s men turn their attention back to the Championship, with promotion at the forefront of their minds. After heartbreak last season against Watford, the Foxes will be keen to avoid the play-offs and gain automatic promotion. BetVictor price them at a short 3/4 (1.75) to win this weekend's match.

Leeds also found themselves having to fight to progress in the League Cup midweek, coming from a goal down to beat Chesterfield.

Brian McDermott has not made many new signings in the transfer window but he has brought in quality. Goalscorer on Saturday Luke Murphy has made an instant impact, with Noel Hunt and Matt Smith also joining the ranks. BetVictor price them at 19/5 (4.80) to take all three points. The same firm price the draw at 11/4 (3.75).

For those who fancy both sides to score, BetVictor price that at 5/6 (1.83) but a bet that offers more value is Over 2.5 goals at a fantastic 9/10 (1.90). Both Leeds and Leicester have played in two competitive matches this season, with all of them ending 2-1. So with Leeds having bolstered their attacking line-up this summer and Leicester possessing a frightening frontline, expect goals in this Championship encounter.
