Premier League leaders Leicester entertain strugglers Chelsea at the weekend, and if anybody had told me I would be writing this opening sentence approaching Christmas, well I would've locked you up and thrown away the key.

It's been a quite incredible season for both of these sides for contrasting reasons, and I don't believe the form book should be thrown away on Monday night, although the bookies clearly haven't consulted it.

Leicester are deservedly sitting pretty at the top of the table and the foxes are unbeaten in their last nine and have just one home defeat all season, compare that to Chelsea who are in 14th position in the table, have just one win in their last seven PL matches and three wins from 14 away from Stamford Bridge... so Leicester have to be a clear favorite?

Now look at the soccer odds on offer:
Chelsea are just 2.26 to win this match with PaddyPower and the money is coming heavily for them, it's one of the worst value soccer picks of the football season so far and certainly one that if you are tempted in, well you are doing this football betting wrong.

Leicester look a fantastic bet to me at a massive 3.40 with BetVictor, they are showing no let up in their form and their style of play and their attacking ability and pace will cause this Chelsea side all kinds of problems.

John Terry has always been a defender that has never been able to handle pace, and Jamie Vardy is one of the quickest in the business, and he will give the former England captain al Monday night to forget.

Claudio Ranieri's side have scored in EVERY single match in the 18 they've played this season and they are a good thing to score again, and with 15 of those 18 matches seeing both teams to score, that looks decent at 1.72 with BetVictor.

Ranieiri still feels harshly done by after his sacking from Stamford Bridge in 2004 and this is a perfect opportunity for the "Tinkerman" to add to Jose Mourinho's woes in this one.

Chelsea did produce a great Champions League win against Porto in midweek and if they get a favorable Champions League draw in the last 16, then I believe that the "Special One" may through everything into winning that competition and the Premier League might take a back seat.
