Leicester suffered a first defeat of the season at Manchester United last weekend and will be looking to bounce back when hosting Tottenham in the Premier League.
Spurs have shown glimpses of their true quality this term, but their progress has been hampered by a number of lapses in concentration.
We reckon these teams are hard to split at King Power Stadium, so 12/5 for a draw is our initial Leicester vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester were undone by an early Marcus Rashford penalty in a tight tussle at Old Trafford, where chances were few and far between at both ends.
However, the Foxes gave as good as they got in that hard-fought affair and Brendan Rodgers was content with the character shown.
He said: “We spoke at half-time that we have to have that belief and courage to play and then we were much quicker and much better through the thirds then.
“We just needed that final little pass or something to drop for us in the box and I felt we could have then got a deserved point. It wasn’t to be, but lots of lessons for us.”
City had previously impressed in a 3-1 home win over Bournemouth and do also have a 1-1 draw at Chelsea to their credit this season.
Looking at the Leicester vs Tottenham odds, we like 6/1 for another 1-1 stalemate here.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Chilwell, Soyuncu, Evans, Pereira, Gray, Tielemans, Maddison, Choudhury, Ndidi, Vardy.
Leicester have a fully-fit squad to choose from and Rodgers has the likes of Harvey Barnes, Ayoze Perez and Wes Morgan to call on should he wish to make any changes to his starting line-up.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Spurs appeared set to build on a 4-0 drubbing of Crystal Palace when Harry Kane’s penalty and a Lucas Moura strike put them 2-0 up at Olympiacos in the Champions League.
However, the Greek outfit rallied to secure a share of the spoils in that group-stage opener, leaving Mauricio Pochettino frustrated.
Tottenham blew a similar lead at Arsenal before the international break and have also suffered a surprise home defeat against Newcastle in a patchy start to the campaign.
“In the beginning of this season, we are conceding a lot of chances and lots of goals and we need to change that,” the head coach said.
“The only way we can change is being more demanding from ourselves. Training needs to be harder. Psychologically harder.”
Pochettino described the defending for Olympiacos’ opening goal as “painful” and Jamie Vardy will be hoping to pounce on any similarly sloppy play here.
He has scored four times in his last three encounters with Spurs and 9/2 for the City striker to break the deadlock is added to our Leicester vs Tottenham betting tips.
Last Tottenham line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen, Sanchez, Davies, Winks, Alli, Eriksen, Moura, NDombele, Kane.
Pochettino is expected to recall Serge Aurier, Danny Rose and Son Heung-min for the trip to the east midlands. The full-backs were left in England ahead of Spurs’ Champions League opener at Olympiacos while Son was only introduced with 17 minutes left.
Argentina international Giovani Lo Celso remains out for the foreseeable future with a hip injury, though, and Ryan Sessegnon continues to struggle with a hamstring problem.
Juan Foyth appears to be close to a return after suffering an ankle issue in pre-season, although this match will come too soon for the defender.
