After just four points from their first nine league games, Leicester City are stuck at the bottom of the table and there is no doubt that Brendan Rodgers is under a lot of pressure ahead of this weekend's game. Although the Foxes have improved in the final third in recent games, their defense remains their biggest weak point. Having conceded the most foals in the league this season (just one clean sheet), it’s unlikely that Leicester will be able to finish this game without conceding at least one goal.
The visitors, on the other hand, are only three points away from the relegation zone and will be eager to take at least a point in order to increase their chances of playing top flight football next season. Given that their 2-1 win over Leeds last time out was the fourth time in their last five games in which both sides scored, Saturday's game could end similarly.
Leicester City vs Crystal Palace Betting Tips: BTTS
Despite the disappointing start to the season, the hosts will be buoyed by the fact that they have not lost any of their last six meetings with Palace.
The fact that the Eagles scored an average of one goal per game in that period is the main reason we are backing "both teams to score" in Saturday’s game.
