What Trueform says for Tottenham vs Leicester
Tottenham have not been overly-convincing of late but are still very much in the title race following a trio of hard-fought Premier League wins.
Leicester are not playing badly and drew at Liverpool recently, but that is their only point in four matches and they do tend to be edged out in tight tussles.
Therefore, we’re going with Spurs to prevail by a one-goal margin at 13/5 for our opening Tottenham vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Although bowing out of both domestic cup competitions during Harry Kane’s absence, Tottenham have kept going in the league with narrow triumphs over Fulham, Watford and Newcastle.
The increasingly-influential Son Heung-min again stepped up to the plate by scoring the only goal of the game late on when the Magpies visited Wembley.
Spurs were aided by a shoddy attempt to keep that shot out from Martin Dubravka but had earlier hit the crossbar through Erik Lamela and seen two Christian Eriksen efforts cleared off the line.
“I think we fully deserved the victory,” said Mauricio Pochettino. “We dominated the game, we had the control, we were very patient.
“It was another massive effort from the squad and the team, I am more than happy, more than pleased.
“It is a fantastic result for us to be in a fantastic position in the table and I can feel very happy and very proud.”
Leicester have the talent to cause problems on the break, but we expect Spurs to come through another test without Kane and Dele Alli.
Looking at the Tottenham vs Leicester odds, there is plenty of appeal in 21/10 for a home win and both teams to score.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Trippier, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Winks, Lamela, Sissoko, Eriksen, Moura, Son.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester enjoyed plenty of possession against Manchester United at King Power Stadium and created a few late chances, but couldn’t respond to Marcus Rashford’s early strike.
A frustrated Claude Puel moaned: “There was the possibility to make at minimum a draw but after our start it is too difficult to change the game.”
That was the fifth game in a row that the Foxes had found themselves behind in a match before 12 minutes were even on the clock.
“When you concede an early goal, it is then difficult to change the game and get back,” added Puel. “I don’t understand, it is crazy because we make it difficult for ourselves.
“It is a shame because afterwards we played well as a team and with good intentions and caused United problems.”
However, Spurs have gone six outings without a first-half goal, so City may get time to settle on this occasion.
Even so, we’re still going for a 2-1 home victory at 15/2 to finish off our Tottenham vs Leicester betting tips.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Evans, Pereira, Maguire, Gray, Maddison, Barnes, Mendy, Ndidi, Vardy.
