Best Tip: Leicester to win to nil

Enzo Maresca, like all Championship managers, will be dreaming of a faultless execution of his tactics from his team on Tuesday evening. Fortunately for him, we think he might just get one, and the stats point in that direction too. We're predicting his Leicester side will defeat Sheff Wed while also keeping a clean sheet, leaving their manager and the King Power Stadium supporters delighted in the process. Best odds of 2.05 for a win 2 nil suggest it's a strong tip.
