Leeds United - Leicester City Betting Preview: Pearson's men to heap more misery on the Whites

The Foxes travel to Elland Road on Saturday lunchtime looking to extend their lead at the top of the Championship and Hugh Wilson is backing the visitors to claim all three points
Leicester City and Leeds United meet this weekend with the two sides in vastly contrasting runs of form. Nigel Pearson's men are currently taking the Championship by storm, winning their last five matches and top the league. Conversely, Leeds have lost their last four matches in all competitions and the odds seem to be stacked against the home side.

Sheffield Wednesday were the latest side to beat Leeds last weekend, thrashing them 6-0 at Hillsborough in a humiliating defeat that followed an FA Cup exit at the hands of League Two side Rochdale. bet365 price them at 5/2 (3.50) to get back to winning ways.

Leicester have recorded some impressive results of late, beating the likes of QPR, Reading, Bolton and Derby.

Pearson's side are really making a claim for the Championship title, and a win this weekend would strengthen that claim, putting pressure on the likes of Burnley and QPR ahead of their respective matches. bet365 price them at 21/20 (2.05). The same firm price the draw at 12/5 (3.40).

Despite the both teams to score bet paying out in Leicester's last three matches, its worth avoiding it at 4/6 (1.67) with Brian McDermott's side unable to find the net in their last two games and the price not offering value.

Over 2.5 goals also may have been worth backing in this match, but the price of 3/4 (1.75) with bet365 seems a tad skinny given the problems going forward for the hosts.

Leicester City to win this game outright seems like a fantastic price with bet365 at 21/20 (2.05). As well as winning their last five matches, the Foxes have won two or their last three matches against Leeds at Elland Road.
