Leicester v Man United: Vardy boosted to break the record


Leicester City host Manchester United this weekend in an unlikely top of the table clash at the King Power Stadium.

Unlikely not only because the Foxes, part of the relegation conversation at the start of the season, top the league but also because United, who have struggled for goals, are just a point behind in second.

With the Red Devils winning nine of the last 10 meetings between these sides, and securing seven of those victories without conceding, there will be plenty of people of people tempted by the 13/10 on a win for the visitors or the 15/8 that says United keep a clean sheet.

However, there is one reason that punters may be tempted to shun United altogether and his name is Jamie Vardy.

The 28-year-old striker has been the talk of the Premier League this season, scoring 13 goals in 13 games and equalling Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record after netting in each of his last 10 matches.

The former non-league ace could make the record his own with an anytime strike against United and new customers backing the ex-Stocksbridge Park Steels player to do just that will see his odds boosted from 6/4 to a whopping 4/1.*

It’s not just new customers that can buy a ticket in the Vardy Express, though with the traders also boosting a Leicester win and a Vardy goal from 7/2 to an impressive 5/1.

Even the most optimistic punter hoping to see the Foxes extend their lead at the top and Vardy break the record, though will expect United to trouble the hosts.

The Old Trafford giants have netted 23 times in their last 10 meetings with Leicester and have netted in five of their last seven games on the road in the Premier League.

Ladbrokes also has a boost for those expecting United to score, however, with the odds of Leicester winning and both sides scoring from 9/2 to 11/2.

With all this and Double Odds on any wining first goalscorer bets where the first goal is netted inside 25 minutes** this is one tea-time tie not to be missed.
