Leicester v West Brom prediction: The Foxes to beat the Baggies 2-1!
The pressure is very much on Leicester to pick up a win here and move within one point of the Baggies.
West Brom’s recent poor form should give Leicester plenty of hope. And, home advantage at the King Power should also come into play as well.
Jamie Vardy was given a rest during the international break and the Leicester City talisman could make all the difference.
Leicester v West Brom betting tips
Leicester are favourites for the win (1/1). Whilst West Brom are rated at 10/3 to grab victory.

Jamie Vardy is rated most likely goal scorer at 5/4 anytime. Odds of 15/4 on Vardy to score last look like the best bet.
Leicester v West Brom match preview
Gameweek 8 of the Premier League comes to an end with what should be a classic English match at the King Power.
Both Leicester and West Brom are too close to the relegation places for comfort after seven games, and will be eager to bag a win.
Recent form from both sides is far from impressive, it will be intriguing to see if the international break accentuates nerves or freedom.
Is Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare in trouble?
Leicester have had a tough start to the season in terms of fixtures, but Craig Shakespeare must already be looking over his shoulder.
Considering Claudio Ranieri was sacked after guiding Leicester to the Premier League title, how long do they hold onto a manager on the verge of the bottom three.
Leicester come into this match in the relegation zone having bagged five points from seven matches.
In Shakespeare’s favour is a good display against Liverpool, and a point last time out at Bournemouth.
Combined with progression in the Carabao Cup.
West Brom are on the slide!
West Brom began the season in impressive form but have not won a Premier League game since Burnley away on August 19, 2017.
Last time out away from home, Tony Pulis had plenty of gripes as his side lost 2-0 at Arsenal.
And, West Brom managed to snatch a draw from the jaws of victory in their last home game against Watford.
