Chelsea vs Leicester Prediction & Pick
All EPL expert picks and predictions are according to FiveThirtyEight projections.
Outcome: Chelsea Wins
Percentages: Chelsea (67%) | Leicester (14%) | Draw (20%)
Both FanDuel Sportsbook and FiveThirtyEight agree that Chelsea should emerge victorious over Leicester on Saturday. The Blues are in need of a momentum-changing win and playing at Stamford Bridge should help. Chelsea is 9-8-3 (W-D-L) at home since the start of the 2021-22 season.
This one is certainly not going to be easy, though. Leicester has scored a goal in all three matches this season and manager Brendan Rodgers has his team firing on offense. Goalkeeper Edouard Mendy looked shaky last week, so the value here lies in betting over 2.5 goals to be scored (-160).
