Leicester City forward Jamie Vardy.  In action. Dribbling the ball. After a full week of Champions League and Europa League play, English Premier League action will return with a Friday night game between West Ham and Leicester.

This game is an important one for both clubs, as both are nervously eyeing the possibility of relegation at the end of the season. West Ham currently has a record of 2-3-7 for a total of 9 points, which puts them in 18th place in the league.

Leicester City, on the other hand, has a record of 3-4-5, for a total of 13 points, which puts them into a four-way tie for 12th place. While Leicester has a bit more breathing room, they certainly can't be happy about where they sit at this point. After all, Leicester City is just a few years removed from their EPL title.

Let's take a look at the odds for Friday's match at West Ham:

Leicester, 2.7
West Ham, 2.79
Draw, 3.39

Here are the five likeliest outcomes of Friday night's match:

Draw 1-1, 6.5
Leicester 1-0, 9.5
West Ham 1-0, 10
Draw 0-0, 10
Leicester 2-1, 11.00

As you can see, this is about as close as you can possibly get.

Leicester City has been average on the road this season, as they have managed 6 points in 6 away games.

West Ham, on the other hand, has been terrible at home, as they have managed just 6 points in 5 home games.

West Ham is currently in the midst of a long winless streak that extends all the way back to early October. Leicester, on the other hand, is looking to rebound following a 2-0 home loss against Manchester City.
