The Leicester vs Norwich odds are seemingly ignoring the form of both teams and backing Leicester's quality to shine through. There is no doubt that on paper, Leicester have a squad too strong for the Championship and up until February they were showing that on the pitch, too. However, their recent collapse should not be ignored and the pressure on them could prove to be too much.

Norwich are one of the last team they would want to face right now, too. The Canaries are the ultimate yo-yo team between the Premier League and Championship and know what's required at this stage of a Championship season. They are sitting quite comfortably in 6th place at present after a good March and will fancy their chances of getting something at the King Power Stadium on Monday afternoon.

There are some other free betting tips that should be considered for Leicester vs Norwich. Norwich to score first is priced at 7/4 (2.75) while Jamie Vardy to score anytime is 13/10 (2.30). The Foxes need their experienced talisman more than ever and he has rarely let them down in the past when the chips have been down.

Last five H2Hs: A good fixture for Leicester

One bit of encouragement that Leicester can take ahead of the match is their recent record against Norwich. They have won their last three matches against the Canaries and haven't conceded a single goal in either of the last two H2Hs.

Player to watch: Jamie Vardy

There have been plenty of comments made in recent weeks about Jamie Vardy and how it is perhaps time for him to call a day on his miraculous career. If this is indeed his swansong, then we should all strap ourselves in.

Vardy to silence the doubters for the final time

Vardy has had to silence critics his entire career but after rising through the leagues to become a Premier League champion, nothing will faze him at this point. The 37-year-old could cap his Leicester career off with some big goals in the run-in, starting on Monday night.
