After a sticky start to the campaign in which they lost two of their opening three, Leicester have gone six matches unbeaten and they should extend that run by beating Derby, a result Stan James offer at 8/11.
Admittedly, the Rams, bet365’s 9/2 outsiders, are in great shape having won six of their first nine to lie third but they struggled against Barnsley on Tuesday while the Foxes have fared well in their last couple of home matches against top opposition, beating both Brighton and Southampton at the King Power Stadium in recent weeks.
Nevertheless, odds-on quotes do little to appeal so it could be worth backing Sven Goran Eriksson’s charges at 11/4 with Skybet to nick it by a one-goal margin. Alternatively, Ladbrokes post 8/1 against a 2-1 home win.
With a haul of just one point from three games, Brighton’s form has just dipped a touch recently and Gus Poyet’s troops could find the going tough at rejuvenated Ipswich.
The Tractor Boys have kept three clean sheets in a row, taking seven points from that trio of matches and full of confidence following the midweek triumph at West Ham, they’re huge at 6/4 (Boylesports) to capitalise on Brighton’s current vulnerability.
Elsewhere, Sportingbet’s 4/7 chances Southampton can maintain their hundred percent record at home by seeing off Watford and also set to secure three points on their own patch are Blackpool, priced by Betfred at 4/5 ahead of the visit of Bristol City.
A treble on the Seasiders, Saints and Ipswich meanwhile, is a tasty 6/1 via Sportingbet.
