City To Outfox Shot-Shy Blades

Sven’s Leicester are 4/5 with Coral to make it 3 wins on the spin in the Championship on Wednesday against Sheffield United.

Leicester made it three wins in four at the weekend, notching twice without reply at Barnsley and back on home soil against struggling Sheffield United Sven Goran Eriksson’s Foxes look primed to grab another maximum haul.

Acknowledging their form, bookies make Leicester odds-on across the board, with Coral’s 4/5 for a home win the best around, but punters could be rewarded for being brave at the Walkers Stadium, by focusing on the visitors’ dismal scoring record.

The Blades have managed to find the net just ten times in 15 matches and three of those came in one match, so they have struck only seven times in their other 14 outings. That’s a goal every other game in other words and with seven blanks to boot, they’re hardly the most prolific outfit.

Couple this with back-to-back clean sheets for Leicester suggesting that they are starting to cure their defensive ills and a modest flutter on them at 15/8 with Paddy Power to win ‘to nil’ starts to look very tempting indeed.

At the Liberty Stadium, confidence levels are through the roof after Swansea’s slender derby success at Cardiff on Sunday and Brendan Rogers’ charges have to be fancied at 4/6 (Betfred) to get the better of Bristol City.

The hosts have won five out of seven at home, where they are yet to taste defeat and only Coventry have managed to find the net in the Swans backyard this season. Like Leicester then, the Welsh side are more than capable of combining victory with a clean sheet (7/4, 888Sport).

In the night’s other clash, second-placed Cardiff are underdogs at 21/10 with as they head to Reading and although that price looks a touch high, this isn’t a game in which an obvious victor or value bet immediately jumps from the page.

Recommended Bets:
Leicester to beat Sheffield United ‘to nil’ – 15/8 (Paddy Power)
Swansea to beat Bristol City -4/6 (Betfred)
