What Trueform says for Tottenham vs Leicester
Leicester sprang into life when beating Arsenal on Wednesday, but Tottenham are rated a cut above on our overall Trueform chart.
Spurs secured a top-four finish in the Premier League by edging out Newcastle in midweek and are now well placed to open up a bit more when the Foxes visit Wembley.
The London club romped to a 6-1 victory when these teams met at around this time last year.
We’re kicking off our Tottenham vs Leicester betting predictions by taking 7/5 for Spurs to win and over 3.5 goals in the game.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
After losing 1-0 at West Brom last Saturday, Tottenham put in another nervous performance when scraping past the Magpies by the same scoreline.
Just as when beating Watford 2-0 here recently, Spurs did look pretty open at the back and could have been punished by more clinical finishing.
However, goalscorer Harry Kane believes there is scope for improvement now that a third straight season of Champions League football has been guaranteed.
The 24-year-old told Spurs TV: “It was an important goal, great to see it go in and after that we defended well and held on for a massive three points.
“The pressure’s now off a bit, so hopefully we can go and try to score some goals on Sunday.”
Looking at the Tottenham vs Leicester odds, Kane can be backed at 3/2 to bag at least a brace himself.
The England ace is three behind Mohamed Salah in the Golden Boot race but did hit four past the Foxes last season.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester had picked up just one point in five games heading into their clash with Arsenal at King Power Stadium and many pundits felt they had packed it in for the season.
However, the Foxes were given a lift by Kelechi Iheanacho’s early strike and the 15th-minute dismissal of Konstantinos Mavropanos.
The Gunners managed to level through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but Jamie Vardy put City back in front from the penalty spot and Riyad Mahrez wrapped up the 3-1 triumph.
With Fousseni Diabata also impressing up front, Iheanacho declared: “I think we’ve got our confidence back now, we’re strong and we’ll keep going.”
Claude Puel added: “It was a fantastic game with good intensity and a lot of chances. My players had a good mentality and showed aggressiveness, passion and desire in their game.”
It remains to be seen whether the Foxes can reproduce that upbeat performance on the road, but they will be competitive if maintaining the momentum.
We like 29/20 for Spurs to win and both teams to score for our Tottenham vs Leicester betting tips.
