Leicester v West Ham – Relegation Battle Betting Tips

Facing the threat of relegation from the Premier League, Leicester City recognizes the imperative need to secure all points when they host West Ham United at King Power Stadium this Sunday.

The Foxes, who astounded the world by clinching the league title seven years ago, now teeter on the brink of a descent to the second tier of English football. Despite their gritty fight for a draw at Newcastle on Monday, Dean Smith’s Leicester team lacks full control of their fate as they approach the season’s final day. If Everton triumphs over Bournemouth or if Leicester cannot best West Ham, they will find themselves in the dreaded bottom three.

Meanwhile, West Ham United managed to distance themselves from the relegation battle after home victories against Manchester United and Leeds, despite a setback against Brentford. Now safe from relegation, David Moyes’ team enters this match with only pride on the line, possibly with their sights already set on the upcoming Europa Conference League final against Fiorentina.

Betting Odds Sunday’s match is a must-win for Leicester City, and they are listed as 19/20 favorites on 888sport to do just that. West Ham United, heading into their final Premier League match of the season, are considered 13/5 outsiders on Bet 365, while the prospect of a draw at King Power Stadium is priced at 3/1 on Betway.

Betting Strategy Given Leicester’s pressing need for points, they appear attractive at the mentioned odds. However, I’m more inclined to back the host team to score Over 1.5 Team Goals at 5/6 on Betway

Despite their struggles this season, Leicester City has seen significant success in their attack, as demonstrated by their standing as the tied tenth highest-scoring team in the Premier League this season. Also noteworthy is that under Dean Smith’s guidance, Leicester has failed to score only twice in seven outings, having scored multiple goals in two of their three home games.
