Leicester vs EvertonEnglish Premier League, KO: 18:00 Dec 16, 2020, King Power Stadium
BOTH Leicester and Everton will be buoyed by their weekend wins and that should lead to an entertaining encounter at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday evening.
Last time out Brendan Rodgers' men brilliantly dismantled Brighton as a first-half goal blitz secured a 3-0 win over the Seagulls.
That result has propelled the Foxes up to third in the Premier League standings where they sit just one point behind table-topping Tottenham Hotspur.
Rodgers and Co will be looking to keep the feelgood factor flowing when the Toffees come to town this midweek.
Carlo Ancelotti's charges flew out of the traps by winning their opening four Premier League games of the season, but their stunning start went up in smoke following a run of just win in seven games.
However, Everton pulled the handbrake on their downward trajectory with a spirited 1-0 win over Chelsea on Saturday night and the Blues will be keen to build on that result when they pitch up at the King Power on Wednesday evening.
Leicester are looking to make it three Premier League wins on the spin and a home win on Wednesday is priced up at 23/20 with Betfred.
Everton bagged a point on their last top-flight road trip and a repeat here pays 13/5 at Bet 365, while a Toffees triumph is trading at 9/4 with the same firm.
History shows that goals tend to flow when these two teams go toe-to-toe – five of the last six meetings have featured three or more match goals.
What's more, nine of the Foxes opening 12 Premier League matches have generated over 2.5 goals, while seven of the Toffees top-flight tussles this term have produced at least three strikes.
The 4/5 (Bet 365) combination that I like the look of at the King Power on Wednesday evening is over one match goal, over five match corners and each team to receive over zero cards.
Indeed, both respective rearguards recorded rare shutouts last weekend, but neither of these sides have been particularly watertight this term – collectively both teams have clocked up just six clean sheets across 24 matches so far.
With that in mind, I'm happy to back over one match goal but I'll also back both teams to collect at least one card during what should be a closely-fought contest at the King Power.
I'm also going to have a play on another Bet 365 Bet Builder at 20/23 by combining both teams to score and Everton to collect over zero cards, a combination that has clicked in three of Everton's last five away matches.
Eight of Everton's 12 league games this season have ended with both sides getting on the scoreboard and when digging slightly deeper it can be seen that BTTS has banked in 11 of the last 14 meetings between these two sides.
