Leicester a solid bet to beat Hull

The first game of the 2016/17 Premier League season sees the reigning champions Leicester in action at Hull (12.30pm KO, Live on Sky Sports 1) and they rate a solid bet at the general 10/11 on offer to get their title defence off to a flying start.

Hull are winless in their last five league meetings with the Foxes (D2, L3) and Leicester haven’t conceded a goal in any of their last three league games against them.

Another stat in favour of Leicester is that the reigning Premier League champions have never lost the opening game of their title defence in the competition’s history (W19, D4).

Leicester also have by far the stronger side and theor opponents hav a depleted squad and have lost manager Steve Bruce which is a big blow to them.

Jamie Vardy should be in his element in this game and the 7/5 on offer with bet365 to acore anytime looks a great bet.

Another appealing wager is for Leicester to win to nil at 2/1 with BetVictor as everything suggests they will boss the game and prove too strong for Hull.
