Leicester have pinged the Premier League lids under Claudio Ranieri and, as a result, are rated just as likely to beat Tottenham this weekend, as the far superior Spurs are to inflict the same fate upon them.
Each side can be backed at 33/20 for victory at the King Power Stadium, but it’s the Lilywhites who punters should be siding with.
The pair have experienced contrasting fortunes early doors, but after a laborious pair of opening matches, Mauricio Pochettino’s side will come good on the road.
In two league meetings with the Foxes last term, Spurs scored six goals and pocketed as many points.
Their 2-1 win at this venue took their winning run against this adversary to three from four top-tier matches, while they haven’t failed to bulge the east Midlanders’ net since 1999.
Seven of their last eight renewals, all of which have resulted in Spurs swerving a bagel, resulted in the north Londoners notching first, making the even-money about them doing so here very much worth a bet.
However, it’s not as appealing as their match-betting price.
If the Premier League was built on points garnered away from home, Spurs would’ve qualified for the Champions League this season.
They won nine of their 19 divisional sojourns last season, eight of which were against sides to finish in the bottom half.
Leicester may be joint top at the minute, but even the most widely optimistic Foxes fan will concede this is just a temporary standing; any placing above the Premier League equator come May will be considered an exceptional feat.
Furthermore, Manchester United were the only big-six based side beaten at the King Power last term; three of Spurs’ fellow members of this particular fraternity left with the points in tow, as of course, the Lilywhites did themselves.
Despite a lacklustre showing at Old Trafford on the opening weekend, Tottenham would’ve left with a point and a clean sheet had Kyle Walker not put through his own net and similar solidity, with the exception of the own goal, will ensure they fare well here.
