Leicester City - Leeds United Betting Preview: Expect two strong attacks to find goals

Brian McDermott's side travel to the Midlands to face the Foxes on Super Sunday, with our tipster backing a high score in this 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 Capital One Cup against Wycombe midweek.

Pearson’s men now 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 playoffs and gain automatic promotion. BetVictor price them at a short 3/4 (1.75) to win the match.

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

McDermott has not made many signings in the transfer window, but he has brought in quality. Goal scorer from 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 on Sunday, with the same firm pricing 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 the four matches ending 2-1.  With Leeds bolstering their attacking line-up this summer, and Leicester having a frightening forward line, expect goals in this Championship encounter.
