Leicester vs Wolves: Free Betting Tips

Here are Football Whispers' Premier League predictions for the Midlands derby between Leicester and Wolves. The Foxes sit in the relegation zone heading into the latest round of fixtures in the Premier League but a win could take them out of the bottom three. Wolves are edging closer and closer to safety and a win on Saturday would take them to within 3pts of the magic 40pts mark.

Draw

Our first Leicester vs Wolves prediction regards the full-time result. We're backing Saturday's clash between Leicester and Wolves to end in a draw, just as three of the pair's last seven league meetings have ended. Leicester haven't won any of their last six league games, picking up their last point away at Brentford in March. Wolves have picked up points in four of their last six outings but have only won one of their last seven games against the Foxes.

Both Teams to Score

Our second Leicester vs Wolves prediction is for both teams to score. There is a good chance that we will be treated to goals at both ends of the pitch this weekend. Five of Leicester's last six outings in the Premier League have ended with both teams getting on the scoreboard, and the hosts haven't kept a clean sheet in any of their last 12 matches in all competitions. Both teams have scored in three of Wolves' last five matches, adding further weight to our prediction.

Leicester vs Wolves Lineups

Leicester

Leicester weren't expected to pick up any points away at title-challenging Man City, and that's just what happened. The home side went in at the break 3-0 up and while Iheanacho did pull a goal back 15-minutes from time, it was no more than a mere consolation. Justin, Pereira, Barnes and Bertrand are the main injury concerns for the home side this weekend.

Predicted Lineup – Iversen (GK), Castagne, Faes, Söyüncü, Souttar, Kristiansen, Tielemans, Ndidi, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall & Vardy

Wolves

Wolves put in a strong display at home to Brentford, running out 2-0 winners in the end. Diego Costa scored his first goal of the season in the 27th-minute and Hwang made it 2-0 in the 69th-minute, securing a big 3pts. Kalajdzic and Boubacar Traore have been ruled out through injury this weekend, while there are also doubts over Costa, but Neves and Jonny both return to the team following suspensions.

Predicted Lineup – Sá (GK), Dawson, Semedo, Kilman, Toti, Sarabia, Lemina, Nunes, Gomes, Costa & Cunha

Player to Watch: James Maddison

James Maddison could provide the catalyst the Foxes need to get out of the relegation zone this weekend, either by scoring goals or setting them up.

The English midfielder has scored 9-goals in the Premier League this season, only Harvey Barnes has more, and he has chipped in with 6-assists which makes him the clubs' main playmaker.

Maddison's form has dropped off lately and the Foxes could really do with a big performance from their main man this weekend, in a game Leicester really must win.
