Leicester v Peterborough
Leicester -1 (Asian Handicap)
The opening day of the season can be full of optimism for all the clubs involved as they all get a chance to start from scratch and that can lead to some games being tighter than expected.
The weather also plays a part and there is supposed to be some soaring temperatures on Saturday that may sap the energy of the players that haven't had a competitive match since May.
In saying that, I do think Leicester City are capable of getting their Championship campaign off to a good start and they should be too strong for a Peterborough side that will have a few new faces in the squad and one that is expected to finish in the bottom third of the table.
You have to be a little concerned that Peterborough have managed to earn a point in each of their last 2 trips to Leicester, but I think the home team are going to learn from the experiences of last season and playing under all that expectation and I will take them on the handicap to get the three points here with a little room to spare.
