Leicester City: Both Teams to Score and Over 2.5 Goal Kings

Anyone with even a passing interest in the football would have noticed the unfamiliar name of Leicester City near the top of the Barclays Premier League table.

Every year there seems to be an unlikely team that makes a strong start in the league only to fade away after a few over-achieving weeks. However, Leicester City do not appear to be going anywhere.

The Foxes’ presence amongst the league’s elite is great news for the club’s supporters and good for the Barclays Premier League as a whole but what does it mean for those who like to bet?

Best betting on Leicester

Well, Leicester have been catching the eye of punters – not for their displays on the pitch but for their performances in certain betting markets. So, let’s take a closer look.

Both Teams to Score

Both teams to Score or Goals Galore; call it what you like, this is one of the most popular betting markets right now and Leicester are the top performing Premier League team in this market.

Coach Claudio Ranieri was so impressed when his team kept a clean sheet recently that he famously took them all out for a pizza. That tells you all you need to know about the rarity of a Leicester shut-out.

Leicester score goals and Leicester ship goals – just look at the stats.

Percentage of Leicester games in which both teams scored:

Home: 80%

Away: 100%

That’s a combined total of 90.9% – a full 9% better than their closest rivals Norwich. The only team with a higher total in all of the major World and European leagues is Scottish club St Johnstone who weigh in at a huge 92.3%.
