What Trueform says for Leicester vs Tottenham
Tottenham bounced back from their derby defeat against Arsenal by brushing aside Southampton and look a cut above Leicester on our Trueform ratings.
The Foxes are unbeaten in six Premier League fixtures but have had a kind schedule during that period, which includes four draws.
This is a much sterner test for City and we favour Spurs to prevail at 19/20 as our first Leicester vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester shared the spoils with former boss Claudio Ranieri when drawing 1-1 at Fulham on Wednesday, with James Maddison scoring a classy equaliser in the 74th minute.
Both teams created chances in an entertaining encounter, with Shinji Okazaki and Demarai Gray impressing for the Foxes as second-half substitutes.
Claude Puel commented: “We didn’t put on the pitch enough quality, but we found all the time a fighting spirit and a desire to come back into the game. It’s a fantastic feeling, because we know we had difficulties.”
A groin injury ruled Jamie Vardy out of the trip to Craven Cottage, but City have still scored in 14 of their 15 Premier League matches this term, so it will be a surprise if Spurs keep a clean sheet.
We still feel the visitors have the better form in the book, though, which makes 12/5 for an away win and both teams to score stand out from the Leicester vs Tottenham odds.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Simpson, Chilwell, Soyuncu, Morgan, Maddison, Albrighton, Mendy, Ndidi, Iheanacho, Diabate.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham did us a favour when seeing off Southampton in midweek, as we picked up a 21/2 pay-out for correctly predicting the 3-1 scoreline at Wembley.
Spurs threatened to run riot for an hour, leading 3-0 through goals from Harry Kane, Lucas Moura and Heung-Min Son, before the Saints produced a spirited response, with Charlie Austin bagging a late consolation.
Hugo Lloris was forced to make a string of impressive saves, while Southampton also hit the woodwork three times in total.
Mauricio Pochettino said: “At 3-0, maybe we drop a little bit in our concentration – I think we start to think the game was over and always it is so dangerous when there is so much time to play.
“In the same way, I try to understand, it was a tough evening, difficult to play the three emotional games we played last week; it is not easy to feel fresh in your legs or your mind.
“For me, the most important thing is to keep going, 33 points, third in the table and I think a fantastic Premier League season.”
That late lapse should help Pochettino to emphasise the need to focus on this match, rather than being distracted by Tuesday’s crucial Champions League trip to Barcelona.
It won’t be easy at King Power Stadium, but the visitors can do just enough and 31/4 for a 2-1 away win is worth adding to our Leicester vs Tottenham betting tips.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Trippier, Rose, Alderweireld, Foyth, Winks, Dier, Eriksen, Lucas Moura, Son, Kane.
