Is 5/1 enhanced odds Leicester good value?
So, what chance do Leicester have in this match? Swansea City were thrashed 3-0 by lowly Newcastle a week ago, so on face value they look an easy scalp for the in-form Foxes.
However the Welsh side will be keen to put that humiliation behind them and there could be a backlash to Leicester’s disadvantage.
Another less than positive factor is the absence of Leicester’s talismanic front man Jamie Vardy, who is on a one-match ban. That ban may be extended further on Monday, but that latter point is of little consequence for this match. Vardy’s absence is a moral blow for Leicester just when they need all hands to the pumps.
Then there was that draw last week, it rather slowed Leicester’s march to the big prize. However the biggest cause for concern may be that they conceded two goals to West Ham United. Does that signify their solid defence is losing some its resilience? You could make an argument that the pressure of the title race is beginning to show.
Obviously we are just playing devil’s advocate here. However, if form means anything, Leicester in front of their amazing home crowd ought really to put Swansea to the sword whatever way you look at it.
If that is so then Paddy Power’s 5/1 enhanced odds about victory could prove too good to pass up.
