Sunderland and Leicester are both desperate for the three points on Sunday, for very different reasons.

The Black Cats are 2/5 with Betfair to be relegated, but a win would put them within a point of Norwich, while the Foxes are 1/4 with Betfair to win the league and a win would, at least temporarily, take them 10 points clear of Tottenham.

Leicester are a tasty looking 5/4 to win this game with Paddy Power, with Sunderland available at 27/10 with BetVictor and the draw at 5/2 with Betfred.

Claudio Ranieri’s side have the best home and away record in the Premier League so far this season, but have scored more away from home (29) than at home (26).

Surely any other side in their position would be odds-on to beat a side staring relegation in the face, who have won just 2 of their 16 home games this season.

Sunderland have also won just one of their last 9 league games home or away, although 5 draws in that period suggests they will at least be hard to break down.

Given that Leicester have won five of their last six matches 1-0, we are going to suggest backing that Correct Score again – especially as Sunderland have been beaten 1-0 seven times already this season (five of those here).

You can back a 1-0 away win at best odds of 13/2 with Bet365, who also refund losing Correct Score bets on all matches that finish 0-0 – a nice potential saver.

Sunderland have also scored just 4 goals in their last 4 matches and so we also feel that odds of 4/6 on Under 2.5 Goals with Bet365 is good value.

Finally, let’s back Jamie Vardy each-way to score the first goal at best odds of 9/2 with Paddy Power (1/3 odds for the place – if he scores any of the first five goals).

Remember, if you place a £20 pre-match bet on any televised Premier League game with Paddy Power, they will give you a free £10 in-play bet on that match.
