The Tigers have a dreadful record away from home and our tipster thinks that the rejuvenated Foxes can keep a clean sheet at the King Power Stadium
Leicester City looked to be back to their best in Monday's Premier League match against Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.
The Foxes were fantastic against Jurgen Klopp's Reds, claiming a vital 3-1 victory and caretaker boss, Craig Shakespeare, will demand another powerful performance when his side meet Hull City.
Hull have themselves enjoyed something of an upturn in fortunes since the arrival of Marco Silva at the turn of the year, but the 39-year-old Portuguese will be acutely aware that he must address the Tigers' terrible record on the road if they are to preserve their Premier League status.
Indeed, Hull have picked up just one point from their last 11 Premier League matches on the road, failing to find the net in eight of their last nine matches away from KCOM Stadium.
These teams locked horns in the opening match of the season, with Mike Phelan's Tigers defying their doubters by claiming a hugely impressive 2-1 win against Claudio Ranieri's Foxes; the fact that neither manager remains in his respective role ahead of this renewal is indicative of the challenging campaign that both sides have faced since that day.
Hull, however, would dearly love to take yet another three points against Leicester this time around and Silva's side can be backed at 15/4 (4.75) with Betway to boost their hopes of survival by claiming a vital victory against the defending Premier League champions.
Leicester have struggled to find their best form this season, but the Foxes will have been lifted by their impressive result and performance against the Reds on Monday night; Betway go 5/6 (1.83) that Shakespeare's side maintain momentum with a win in this one, while there is 12/5 (3.40) available that the match ends all square.
Given the Tigers' troubles on their travels thus far this term, the 5/4 (2.25) quote for the rejuvenated Foxes to keep a clean sheet may well prove popular with punters, while there is 9/5 (2.80) that Leicester win without conceding – a selection that would have seen punters profit from eight of Hull's last 10 away defeats.
Leicester looked to regained their swagger in the win against Liverpool, while Silva's side have scored just six goals away from home in the Premier League this season.
The 5/4 (2.25) on offer for Leicester City to shut out the toothless Tigers, therefore, may offer value for punters ahead of Saturday's showdown.
