Stockport County vs Leicester City: Over 2.5 Goals - 4/5

The first tip on this list sees Stockport County host Leicester City at Edgeley Park in a massive game for under-fire Foxes boss Brendan Rodgers.

Stockport have lost both of their last two matches by 2-1 scorelines against Mansfield Town and Doncaster Rovers after earning back-to-back 1-0 victories against Colchester United and Harrogate Town. Before this sequence of results, County had also been beaten 2-1 away at Stevenage.

Leicester are without a win this season having blown a 2-0 lead on the opening day to Brentford as they only drew 2-2, before being beaten 4-2 and 2-1 by Arsenal and Southampton.
