Leicester City v Chelsea – FA Cup Betting Guide: 18th March 2018

Sunday 18th March 2018

Leicester City v Chelsea 16:30

 

We end the FA Cup Qtr-final games with Leicester hosting Chelsea on Sunday.

Chelsea will searching for 8th FA Cup title this season, while despite getting to four finals Leicester are still to lift the cup.

The sides have already played twice this season with Chelsea taking 4 points of the Foxes after a win and a 0-0 draw at home and then winning their trip to Leicester 1-2.

They also met 7 times in the FA Cup, with Chelsea holding the clear edge on that score too – winning 5, 2 draws and Leicester are yet to beat the Londoners in this competition.

If you fancy either side to go all the way then Chelsea can be backed at 5.00, while Leicester are as big as 11.00.

The match betting here isn’t totally one-sided though – don’t forget, Leicester will have home advantage. Yes, Chelsea are still the favourites but at 2.10 that might tempt punters in, with the draw 3.50 and Leicester 3.30.

Both sides head here in fair form too after good league wins last weekend and with the form book often going out the window in this competition then Leicester are sure to have their supporters too.

Leicester have, however, scored just 1 goal in their last 4 head-to-heads against Chelsea so haven’t been having the best of times against the Blues of late.

Chelsea have also won their last 3 away games at Leicester and head into this game unbeaten in their last 6 against the Foxes.

Other bets to look at are both teams ‘not’ to score – this has paid out in 3 of the last 4 clashes between these sides so the 2.05 might tempt you in.

However, this is another game we could see goals in. With 11 of the last 14 (79%) clashes going OVER 2.5 GOALS then this bet has paid out more often than not, so the 1.85 on 3+ goals being netted again here certainly catches the eye.

 

BEST BET: OVER 2.5 GOALS @1.85
