It’s really imperative for Leicester to win this game, but will they be able to do it?
Leicester City vs Everton – 26/12/2016
FT Result: Leicester 2.55 or 31/20 Draw 3.30 or 23/10 Everton 3.00 or 2/1
Total Goals Over/Under 2.5: Over 1.95 or 19/20 Under 1.85 or 17/20
Both Teams To Score: Yes 1.75 or 3/4 No 2.00 or 1/1
It has to be said, it’s hard to find both teams in worst form than these two. Both teams have won 9 points in their last 10 games. Leicester’s victories came against Manchester City and Crystal Palace, which clearly shows us they can still play football.
Unfortunately for them, this only happens every once in a while, and they’ll also miss Jamie Vardy in their game against Everton. Their goal difference isn’t the best either but gives us some clues about their style – 23:39 this season.
If we speak about Everton, we have to say that the only thing saving their recent form is their great 2-1 win over Arsenal. Apart from that, they’re on a fairly lengthy period with sub-par performances, especially away from home.
Everton has won one point in their previous 5 away games, and have lost the last 4 – hardly a record to be proud of. They’ll certainly want to end this streak as soon as possible, just as Leicester will want to gather points which can re-take them to the top half of the standings.

We’re certain of a single thing in this game: we will see goals. At least over 1,5, but most probably over 2,5. We also believe that Leicester will manage to avoid defeat in front of their home fans, so 1X is another smart bet.
The “both teams to score “ bet is also recommended here, since we expect to see an open game with lots of action at both goals.
