Leicester City FC vs Burnley FC: What are the betting odds?
The Foxes won 3 of the last 4 home matches in this head-to-head. They also started the season with a comfortable 0-3 win at West Brom last weekend. This makes them the 8/13 favourites to take all three points.
These two sides have played out a draw in 4 of the last 8 matches in Leicester, in all competitions. Odds of 3/1 are available if you see Leicester and Burnley cancelling each other out on Sunday
Burnley come into Sunday’s match in search of their first away win against Leicester in the Premier League. Only five teams won more matches on their travels than Burnley last season. This suggests their 9/2 odds of winning here could be good value.

Leicester City FC vs Burnley FC: Recommended bets
101 Great Goals’ prediction of Leicester 2 – 0 Burnley is available at odds of 7/1.
Leicester’s won this fixture last season back in October by a scoreline of 2-1. A repeat of this score on Sunday is available at odds of 8/1.
Burnley’s last win at King Power Stadium was back in the Championship in 2007. You can back them at 14/1 for the same 0-1 scoreline here on Sunday.
Leicester vs Burnley has historically been a low scoring game in Leicester averaging 1.77 goals per game. You can back another low scoring game here on Sunday with odds of 10/11 for under 2.5 goals.
Although, each of the last three matches between them has seen over 2.5 goals. You can bet on another over 2.5 goals game at 10/11.
Jamie Vardy (pictured above) started his defence of the Premier League Golden Boot award with a bang, scoring 2 in Leicester’s 0-3 win at West Brom. Vardy is the favourite to get on the scoresheet at 8/11. You can back the former England international at 5/2 to grab the game’s opening goal.
Both of Vardy’s goals at the weekend were from the penalty spot. The odds of Leicester scoring another penalty here are 5/1.
Chris Wood (pictured below) was Burnley’s top scorer last season, with 14 Premier League goals. The 28-year-old centre-forward looks the most likely to get on the scoresheet for the Clarets. The New Zealand international is 5/2 to score against Leicester at the weekend. Or 15/2 to do so as the game’s first scorer.
Leicester City FC vs Burnley FC: Match preview
The big question of this Leicester side over the summer is which version would show up for the 2020/21 season.
The side that won 12 of their opening 16 games of the 2019/20 campaign? This form put them in second place and had them being talked up as title challengers.
Or the side who averaged just 1 point per game over their final 14 games of the season? This is ordinarily relegation form. Only Aston Villa and Norwich won fewer matches over that period than Leicester’s 3. This run saw them plummet out of the title race, and eventually, the Champions League qualification which looked safe at Christmas.
Their performance as well as the result at the weekend is hopefully an indication that last season’s collapse is behind them. As well as the two penalties, they created two other big chances while preventing West Brom from creating any of their own. They were good value for their 0-3 win.
For Burnley, this will be their first match of the season due to last weekend’s curtain-raiser against Manchester United being postponed.
Dyche’s boys had a fantastic run-in last season, picking up 30 points from their final 16 games of the season. Only Champions Liverpool and the two Manchester clubs won more points over that period.
However, Burnley’s threadbare squad just got a little barer over the summer. Jeff Hendrick, Joe Hart, Aaron Lennon, Aiden O’Neill and Ben Gibson have all departed after their contracts expired. As of yet, no players have been brought in to replace them.Advertisement > Mansionbet sign up special: Bet £10, Get £20! >Claim now
Leicester City FC team news vs Burnley FC
The Foxes are still without a number of key players coming into this match.
First-choice centre-back Jonny Evans missed out on facing his former club at the weekend due to suspension. He is also currently injured with a quadriceps strain which could see him miss further games even when he has completed his suspension
Wes Morgan, who was expected to deputise for Evans, is also being kept out with an injury. He suffered a hamstring injury in the pre-season friendly against Sheffield Wednesday and has not trained since.
Third-choice central defender Filip Benkovic has returned from a loan spell at Bristol City. Brendan Rodgers (pictured above) confirmed in midweek he is also now ruled out with a pelvic injury.
Ricardo Pereira has been ruled out with a knee injury. The injury has kept Leicester’s first-choice right-back out since March. Timothy Castagne scored on his debut at right-back at the weekend and will continue in place of Pereira.
James Maddison has also been out since July with a pelvic injury. He had a brief cameo at the weekend and could be in line to start against Burnley.

Burnley FC team news vs Leicester City FC
Sean Dyche also has a long list of injuries to manage as he prepares for his first match of the 2020/21 campaign.
Ashley Barnes has been out since January with a groin problem that eventually required a hernia operation. Sean Dyche confirmed this week he is making progress towards a return.
“Ashley is making progress and has been training out on the grass.”
– Sean Dyche, Burnley Manager
Ben Mee has been out since the end of June with a thigh injury. However, Dyche confirmed he is not nearing a return for the club as he is yet to join full training for Burnley.
James Tarkowski (pictured above) played every minute of Burnley’s 2019/20 campaign. He looks unlikely to repeat the feat in 2020/21 as he struggles to get fit for Sunday with a toe injury. With Ben Mee also out, Dyche may need to rely on the youth team to plug the gap at the back.
Similar to Mee, Jack Cork missed the last 6 games of 2019/20 with an ankle injury. He is ruled out for this weekend also.
Johann Berg Gudmundsson picked up a knock over pre-season. While no confirmation has been provided for how long he could be out, he won’t be playing any part in Sunday’s proceedings.Advertisement > Get a free bet worth up to £25 when you place your first bet with VBET! >Awesome offer!
