Preston – Leicester betting tip, prediction & odds 29.04.2024

Championship, Monday, 29.04.2024

On the penultimate matchday of the Championship season, the Foxes can make it all clear at the Lilywhites and seal promotion with a win.

The mid-table team from Lancashire have seen their form dip in recent days and weeks. Therefore, my Preston Leicester betting tip is in favor of the visitors

They had to say goodbye to their promotion dreams in the north-west of England a few weeks ago. The finish to the season was not a good one.

PNE picked up just one win from their last six games (1U, 4N) and lost a lot of ground in the race for the play-off places.

It will therefore be another season in solid mid-table for coach Ryan Lowe’s squad. In the balanced Championship, that can certainly be seen as a success.

Nevertheless, the home side must ensure that they finish the season in style. The offense in particular has been a source of concern for the fans of late

In the six games in question, the Lilywhites have failed to score five times. Will the goal drought end against the league leaders of all teams?

Well, defensively, the Foxes have not been pulling up trees recently. They have conceded at least one goal in seven of their last eight games.

In this respect, there could be unexpectedly high value for your Preston Leicester betting tip. At Happybet Sportwetten, the odds for over 0.5 goals for the home side are around 1.60.

On the other hand, it is not set in stone that the Foxes will play the stars out of the sky. They have been struggling away from home for a few weeks now.

Their poor record on foreign pitches is certainly one reason why the relegated team did not secure direct promotion sooner.

They have only won four of their last ten away matches (1U, 5N), with their last away win coming four games ago (1U, 3N).

No question: The visitors have not earned their return to the Premier League through their performances away from home.

They haven’t scored there in three games either. Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that they will not set off any fireworks again

But what does that mean for the general goal prediction for your Preston Leicester betting tip? In my opinion, you shouldn’t get your hopes up too high here.

Because in six of the Lilywhites’ last ten games, fewer than three goals have been scored. This has been the case for the visitors in four of their last five away games

Goals from both sides are also an unlikely scenario, judging by the statistics. In only two of the last eleven games involving PNE have both teams scored.

This also explains the “both teams to score” odds from bookmaker Oddset, which are just over 1.80.

The visitors will be glad when it’s finally over. They have had a tough season with many ups and downs.

But you can’t say that a possible championship is undeserved. After all, they have been top of the table since matchday eight. But they won’t put in a brilliant performance in their penultimate game.

My Preston Leicester tip is therefore: There will be less than 2.5 goals scored
