Best Tip: Leicester to win

We're predicting Leicester will come out on top after 90 minutes on Saturday in the win / draw / win market. The latest form stats and historical head-to-head (H2H) data below all that they're well placed to do just that and, as favourites with the bookmakers, the odds back that up too. Expect jubilant celebrations among the home fans when the game draws to a close at King Power Stadium.

There's growing belief within the betting community that Birmingham City will have a difficult time here, and this is reflected in drifting odds for a victory for Tony Mowbray's men. We're clearly not the only ones predicting a Leicester City victory out there.

Goal Statistics

A PG of 2.2 is decent for Leicester City in their clash with Birmingham City, as is their run of scoring 1 goal or more in 40 consecutive Championship matches.

A truly awful PG of just 0.9 should cause concerns for Birmingham City fans, as should a 6 Championship matches run in which they have failed to score more than 1 goal.
