Will Jamie Vardy make it 12 straight matches with a goal? He'll lead out Leicester as they head to Wales to take on Swansea -- who are the soccer odds favoring?

Odds Overview
The English Premier League odds board show that we should be in for a highly competitive match inside Liberty Stadium. Both teams are listed at very comparable prices to win, while a draw is available for action at approximately +230 to +250, depending on your sportsbooks of choice.

 

Swansea City
Recent form has been worrying for the Swans, considering they've gone winless in four straight matches, with three defeats and one draw mixed in there. As a result, they've dropped to 15th in the Premier League table.

One of the few highlights for Swansea City this season has been the quick adaptation to life in the English top flight for Andre Ayew, who has a team-best six league goals.

 

Leicester City
While Swansea City have been struggling, the Foxes continue to surprise. They're tied with Manchester City for first place in the league, and are only listed as second because of an inferior goal differential.

The big story, of course, has been star striker Jamie Vardy's scoring run; remarkably, he's found the back of the net in 11 straight Premier League matches, and he'll be licking his chops at the prospects of extending that against the out-of-form Swans.

 

Premier League Pick
As amazing as it's been to watch Vardy light it up in the Premier League, we can't get carried away. This trip to Swansea is going to be tricky for Leicester City, regardless of the hot start for the Foxes.

While the Swans haven't been performing at their highest level, they're never easy to beat at home, and we think they'll be eager to make a good impression after that recent loss to Liverpool, a match they were perhaps unlucky to lose. We don't know if they'll have it in them to win outright, but we do see Swansea getting at least a point out of this fixture, so we'll take the safe route and go small on the draw.
