Pick
LEICTY (-125) @ pinnacle

I'm playing on LEICESTER CITY. While Southampton is a quality team, I believe that they're at the wrong place, at the wrong time. Leicester cruised to a 4-0 victory in their FA Cup match (Stoke City) and now they'll bring back Vardy and Maddison, who were both rested, for this one. The Saints haven't played in quite some time. Their only 2021 game came back on 1/4. Normally, some extra rest might be welcome. However, given that they were off a 1-0 win over Liverpool, they probably would have preferred to keep playing. Either way, this was going to be a tough match for the Saints and it became much tougher when Danny Ings tested positive for Covid. Thats a serious blow, as he'd been in excellent form this season and had the winner in the Liverpool game. As Saints' boss Ralph Hasenhüttl noted: "Danny Ings is out now. He is in self-isolation. This is not good." City shows no sympathy and takes advantage of his absence.

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
