Manchester City have kept clean sheets in nine of their 12 consecutive Premier League wins, but Leicester do have a good record of scoring against them.
The Foxes have hit the target in seven of their last eight head-to-head encounters and go into this clash on a good run of form up front.
Pep Guardiola’s side should ultimately be too strong, so 27/20 for a home win and both teams to score gets the nod as our first Man City vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At Manchester City’s Betting Odds
The Citizens only just continued their relentless march towards securing back-to-back titles when scrambling to a 1-0 success at Burnley.
Sergio Aguero’s decisive strike was just 29mm over the line before being cleared away, but that was enough for yet another three points.
To be fair, the Blues did dominate proceedings at Turf Moor, should have had a penalty for handball and went close to doubling their lead when Gabriel Jesus had a shot blocked on the line.
After romping home by 19 points last term, John Stones believes the pressure applied by Liverpool this season has spurred City on.
The England defender declared: “It makes everything exciting, keeps everyone on our toes.
“If you ask me if I’d prefer to win it like last season, I’d say yes, but the situation we are in, we’re really enjoying, trying to go with the flow, take everything in and keep putting the performances in.
“It’s making us hungrier to keep winning, keep the pressure on and keep fighting until we can’t any more. It’s exciting to be part of it.”
With just two games between them and being crowned champions again, we can’t see the Blues slipping up, even if Leicester do have the pace to hurt them on the break.
Looking at the Man City vs Leicester odds, we like 9/1 for a 3-1 home victory here.
Last Man City line-up: Ederson, Walker, Kompany, Laporte, Gundogan, B Silva, D Silva, Zinchenko, Sterling, Aguero, Sane.
City are again without playmaker Kevin De Bruyne, who has missed the last two games with a hamstring problem. Midfielder Fernandinho (knee) is a doubt.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester deserve great credit for registering six wins in nine outings since the appointment of Brendan Rodgers, who may want to do his former club Liverpool a favour here.
The Foxes had enjoyed a kind fixture list but Rodgers claimed his most notable scalp yet via a 3-0 triumph over Arsenal at King Power Stadium.
Admittedly, the Gunners were hampered by the first-half dismissal of Ainsley Maitland-Niles, but a 59th-minute header by Youri Tielemans and Jamie Vardy’s late double then tore them apart.
Rodgers said: “It was a very good performance. We didn’t waste any time. We showed we are a good side.
“I thought 11 vs 11, we were the better side. When it went to 11 vs 10, we were asked a question.
“Could we handle the extra man? Could we find a game that we understand how to play against 10 men? The players responded to that magnificently.”
Eight of Leicester’s last nine goals have come after the interval, so 5/2 they score more times in the second half than the first completes our Man City vs Leicester betting tips.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Evans, Pereira, Maguire, Maddison, Albrighton, Tielemans, Ndidi, Choudhury, Vardy.
Leicester have no fresh injuries, with Daniel Amartey (ankle) and Matty James (lack of match fitness) the only players unavailable.
