Leicester City will forever be remembered for springing one of the biggest shocks in sporting history with their Premier League title win in 2014. The Foxes’ fans love looking back on that season but, like every set of supporters, their eyes are on the future.
The future looked an uninspiring one under Claude Puel which the King Power Stadium faithful made plainly clear during last season. That prompted the club to make a switch and the appointment of Brendan Rodgers really sent excitement levels through the roof.
Leicester City Premier League Betting Odds
You won’t get 5,000/1 on Leicester City winning the Premier League again. Still, 888Sport’s 250/1 is tempting enough for those who think lightning will strike twice.
We’re not going to recommend you take that price but that doesn’t mean we’re anything but bullish about Leicester’s chances of having a very good season.
Leicester City Outright Betting Odds
Brendan Rodgers got used to winning silverware during his spell as Celtic manager. He had also previously proven his ability as a Premier League manager when taking Liverpool to the brink of the title and imposing an attractive and effective style of football on Swansea.
Leicester will play some excellent football at times this season. How consistent they are remains to be seen but the Foxes’ attacking quality suggests they are worth a small stakes bet to win the FA Cup at 30/1 with 888Sport.

Leicester Tips and Predictions
The so-called ‘big six’ of the Premier League don’t look as though they are going anywhere anytime soon. It’s going to take a massive improvement from any of the chasing pack to break into the top six but that won’t stop Leicester from trying.
Indeed, we think their squad is of sufficient quality to suggest they can win the betting without the top six market at 7/2.
