Team Analysis
Leicester has had an exceptional season so far, rarely deviating from their winning streak. Their previous league match, however, ended in a loss, a rare downturn in their otherwise impressive run. They will be looking to regain their stride on Friday against Leeds, the league's second-best team.

Leicester's previous 1-2 defeat against Middlesbrough was their 5th setback of the season, halting their four-strong league victory streak. On the other hand, Leeds extended their unbeaten run to 11 games following a 0-2 victory against Plymouth.

Notably, both teams have been making the goal sheets frequently. Leicester, for instance, has scored at least two goals in five of their last six matches. Their impressive performance has consistently secured their top position in the Championship table, maintaining a nine-point lead against Leeds in the second spot. Although, Leeds is currently demonstrating an arguably better form.

On a winning rampage, Leeds has clinched victory in the last five matches across all competitions, boasting an 11-game undefeated streak. Across just the last four league games, they have hammered in 10 goals. We can anticipate a surfeit of goals as Leeds, riding on bullish form, play Leicester, the team with the best attack this season.

The last encounter of these two teams saw a narrow 0-1 victory for Leeds, marking a two-game unbeaten streak against Leicester. The past eight meetings have featured five high-scoring matches between the teams. Leicester enjoys a four-game unbeaten streak against Leeds at this venue, with three of these games seeing both the teams making the goal sheets.

Odds Analysis
Leeds have been avoiding defeat at home for a good while; they are currently on an 18-game undefeated streak in home games. They have allowed goals in two of the last four home outings, but that could fuel expectations for goals from the season's best offensive line.

A smart initial pick would be Leeds for the victory. The goal trends from both teams point towards a likely outcome of over 2.5 goals and scores from both ends.

Moreover, Leeds' Dutch striker Summerville has netted 4 goals in the last four matches. As Leeds' highest scorer this season, what better time to back him to score anytime in this match? Further, over 65% of the matches played by both teams this season have been high-scoring.

Pick: Leeds to win
