SlipsTips is back with a selection from Fulham's Premier League clash with Leicester City on Monday afternoon.
Fulham vs Leicester City (Monday, 15:00)
Leicester City will be bidding to further boost their Premier League survival hopes when they face Fulham at Craven Cottage on Monday afternoon.
The Foxes are occupying 16th place in the table following a 2-2 draw with fellow relegation rivals Everton last Monday night, meaning new manager Dean Smith has avoided defeat in three of his four matches since taking the reins at the King Power.
As for 10th -placed Fulham, their eyes are firmly fixed on finishing in the top of the table, although those hopes have been hampered off the back of three successive losses.
Leicester will attract plenty of attention at 8/5 and better given that they are undeniably in greater need of the points here, however I'm happy to opt for an alternative angle by siding with Over 2.5 Match goals at 4/5 with Betfair
Marco Silva's men have been entertaining Premier League crowds all season, and that is evidenced by the fact that a sizeable 22 of their 34 league games this term have produced three or more goals.
Fulham's knack for being involved in goal-heavy games can be attributed to them scoring in 25 of their overall 34 league games thus far, while failing to keep the back door shut in 26 in a considerable 26 of their contests.
It's a similar story for a Leicester City side that carry plenty of attacking threat but haven't managed to tighten up at the back under Dean Smith’s stewardship.
Each of the Foxes’ four matches under their boss have featured goals at both ends, with Over 2.5 Goal backers collecting on three of those occasions.
In fact, 21 of Leicester’s 34 league games have generated a minimum of three match strikes this season, a sample that includes 11 of their 17 top-flight road trips, and I see no reason to oppose a repeat here given that Fulham can approach this with a relaxed attitude, while Leicester are attack-minded by nature
What’s more, Over 2.5 Goals has landed in 43 of the pair's collective 68 (63.2%) Premier League outings this term to date, yet 4/5 (Betfair) odds imply a 55.6 % chance of the same bet clicking at the Cottage.
