Spurs v Leicester Betting Tips & Predictions

Despite a 2-0 defeat to Sporting in the Champions League a few days ago, Tottenham are odds-on favourites for the visit of struggling Leicester in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

Leicester are rooted to the bottom of the Premier League table with just one point from their first six matches.

Brendan Rodgers is under severe pressure ahead of this match. The Foxes lost 5-2 last time out and remain without Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand.

Antonio Conte is expected to make changes after Spurs disappointed in midweek, with Heung-min Son a candidate to drop to the bench.

Half Time/Full Time: Tottenham/Tottenham

5/4 (Ladbrokes)

Spurs have won all three of their home matches, and have been winning at half-time in two of them. Leicester have suffered three defeats from three on the road, conceding 11 goals in the process. 

Conte was not impressed with Spurs’ performance against Sporting, and the hosts will be fired-up to improve on that showing here. Leicester are low on confidence and could be blown away in the first half if Spurs’ attack hits its stride. 

Total Home Goals: Over 2.5 

6/4 (William Hill)

Leicester have conceded over 2.5 goals in two of their three away matches.

The only occasion they didn’t concede three or more was against the 10 men of Chelsea, and the Blues still managed to find the net twice. This Leicester defence is leaking goals at an alarming rate.

Only three teams are getting off more shots per game than Spurs. Dejan Kulusevski should return to the XI for this one, and he has already shown what a difference he can make this season.

Spurs scoring three or more is a good wager at 6/4. 

First Team Booking: Tottenham

23/20 (William Hill)

Only Brentford are committing fewer fouls per game than Leicester.

The Foxes have been shown just seven yellow cards this season. Spurs, meanwhile, have seen 14 cautions and rank around mid-table in both tackles per match and fouls.

The hosts aren’t as ball dominant as other top sides, but they are expected to have the majority of possession here.

While that should mean fewer opportunities to go into the referee’s notebook, it also opens up the potential for counter-stopping fouls, which are an automatic yellow.

Spurs have several yellow-card risks in their XI, too. 

All odds are subject to change
