These teams experienced similar levels of success last campaign, with Leicester finishing eighth on the EPL table with a 14-10-14 record (52 points) and Brentford finishing 13th with a 13-7-18 record (46 points).

Leicester vs Brentford Prediction & Pick

All EPL expert picks and predictions are according to FiveThirtyEight projections.
Outcome: Leicester wins
Percentages: Leicester (48%) | Brentford (28%) | Draw (25%)

Both FanDuel Sportsbook and FiveThirtyEight agree that Leicester should take down Brentford to start their EPL campaign. There's a lot to like about Leicester's chances considering the club posted a 10-4-5 record at home last year. Look for goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel to make an impact in this one.

I'll grab the home team on the moneyline here as Leicester is 4-0-0 against Brentford in their last four head-to-head matchups. That's enough to make backing Leicester at +100 odds worth it.
