Leicester v Burnley betting tips: Clarets need to shut the door
Preview and odds for Saturday’s Premier League clash
Leicester will bid to get back on track when they host Sean Dyche’s men in the Premier League so we examine the odds to find some Leicester v Burnley betting tips.
The Foxes suffered their third defeat of the season last weekend at Brighton, while Burnley are still looking for their first win of the season following their 1-0 home defeat by Arsenal.
Saturday’s match, which takes place at the King Power Stadium, kicks off at 3pm.
Leicester v Burnley match odds
Leicester have had something of an indifferent start to the new Premier League season, winning two and losing three of their five games.
Worryingly, they have looked ill at ease defensively, particularly in the losses at West Ham (4-1) and Brighton (2-1).
With another defeat to Manchester City, the Foxes have now lost six of their last nine Premier League games, winning just three. Those six defeats are more than they had in their previous 24.
Yet Burnley offer a good opportunity to show their true colours and Leicester are 4/7 to return to winning ways.
They have won each of their last six games against sides who have started the day in the bottom three and have scored a total of 15 goals in that span, conceding just two.
Burnley have lost their last three away league games and have taken just one point from a possible 24, losing seven games and drawing just one. They have managed just three goals in that span.
Consequently, Dyche’s side are 11/2 underdogs to win in the Leicester v Burnley betting tips.
They enter this clash on a high following a 4-1 League Cup win over Rochdale on Tuesday, where Jay Rodriguez netted all four.
Yet holding on to leads in the Premier League has been tough for the Clarets, who have opened the scoring three times but dropped a league-high eight points from winning positions.
🗣 "In the end, we ended up worthy winners" – Dyche 👏

Leicester v Burnley head-to-head
Burnley have won just three of their 12 Premier League meetings with Leicester, with all three victories coming at Turf Moor.
They were beaten 4-2 in this fixture last season, although the pair drew 1-1 in the return encounter. Burnley have held their own in recent seasons, however, unbeaten in five of the last nine clashes, so they are 6/4 to win or draw the game on the Double Chance market.
Leicester are unbeaten in their last 10 home league games against Burnley (W6 D4) since a 1-0 loss in the Championship in November 2007 and they have kept a clean sheet in five of those 10 games. It is 23/20 that they keep a clean sheet and 31/20 that they win to nil.
Both sides found the net in six of the last seven meetings and the odds are 20/23 that both sides score in the Leicester v Burnley betting tips.
Leicester v Burnley key battles
It can be argued that Leicester have been fortunate to keep one clean sheet this season, since their 1-0 win on the opening weekend owed much to Wolves’ profligacy in front of goal.
Leicester have conceded in every game since and they will do well to keep a former fans’ favourite quiet.
Chris Wood has managed to score four goals against his former club and the New Zealander has registered on each of his two previous visits to the King Power. He is 11/5 to score at any time and 11/2 to score the first goal.
