It’s squeaky bum time for Leicester City.
Brendan’s boys have forced themselves into the conversation for accolades in the 2020-21 season, but how will they fair without Jamie Vardy?
Their energetic, tenacious, bullying striker is going under the knife for minor groin surgery, with a gaping hole left to fill in leading the line.
Everton have won five of their last six in the Premier League and Ancelotti’s Toffees are quietly going about their business as dark horses.
Both sides have real ambitions of breaking into the “big six” for good this season, but who will get the edge on Wednesday?
Check out our top Odds Picks for Wednesday’s match including a massive 9/1 Long Shot for a first goalscorer in form.

Our Top Odds Pick – Score draw – 7/2 at BetVictor
Everton and Leicester’s records are very similar this season.
Victories in the two games in hand the Toffees have on Leicester would see them draw exactly level after similarly impressive seasons so far.
Both teams have scored in five of the last seven meetings between these two, and we think Wednesday will be no different.
It’s extremely hard to split these two, so keeping damage to a minimum will be at the forefront of both Carlo Ancelotti and Brendan Rodgers’ minds.
7/2 with BetVictor is a cracker for a score draw at Goodison Park.
Our Long Shot – James Maddison to score first – 9/1 at Paddy Power
If you didn’t fall in love with James Maddison following his post-match interview last week then where is your heart?
The Englishman spoke well regarding his desire to improve and score more goals in the Leicester midfield, revelling in netting his third goal in as many Premier League matches.
With Jamie Vardy absent, Maddison and others will feel obliged to get further forward and at 9/1 he’s a cracking price to net the opener in midweek.
