There is a huge mach-up in the Premier League on Saturday, when the 3rd Leicester will play host to the 2nd Manchester City. Neither team is in very good shape right now but these two will surely fight hard for the 2nd spot. However, Manchester City do have an important match coming up in just a few days.

Spread: Manchester City -0.75
Total: 3 Goals
Leicester (15-6-5) played a really balanced match on the road against Wolves last week. No matter how the two teams tried, they ended up splitting the points in a goal-less draw. That was actually the second consecutive draw for Leicester, who are now win-less in their last three (0-1-2). They have not been as stable lately and are now sitting at the 3rd spot with 50 points. They are four behind City and nine ahead of Chelsea. The Foxes have been great at home this season (8-2-3) but have won just two of their last seven matches in all competitions there (2-2-3).
On the other hand, Manchester City (17-6-3) had very easy job at home against West Ham, but only scored twice for the final 0-2. They wee also great on the defensive end of the pitch, not allowing their opponents to operate. However, that win came after consecutive losses in two competitions against Tottenham and Manchester United. Manchester City are still 2nd in the Premier League with 54 points, four ahead of Leicester. They have the 2nd best away record in the league (8-4-1) and the best away offense with 34 goals.
Manchester City beat Leicester by 1-3 at home earlier in the season but the two teams exchanged home wins last season. However, Leicester traditionally struggle when they host Manchester City, winning just two of their twelve matches in all competitions over the years (2-5-5). Manchester City will probably seal the 2nd spot with a win here but they do have a Champions League match coming up. But even their bench players are pretty good, so I am going with the visitors here.
