Leicester vs Tottenham prediction, odds & betting tips

Kick-off: 1500, 11/02/2023

Stadium: King Power Stadium

Leicester and Tottenham are both on a high after impressive victories at the weekend, when the return of James Maddison to City’s starting line-up sparked a 4-2 comeback win at previously in-form Aston Villa.

A day later, Harry Kane became Tottenham’s all-time record scorer with the only goal against Premier League champions Manchester City, which boosted their top-four hopes.

Spurs have won the last four meetings between the clubs in high-scoring encounters but our first Leicester vs Tottenham prediction is for both teams to score and over 2.5 goals at 21/20.

Leicester City Odds

The Foxes twice fought back from behind to win at Villa Park and end a five-match winless run, during which they had picked up just one point.

Leicester started the match outside the relegation zone on goal difference, but they have the comfort of a three-point buffer on the bottom three thanks to their win against their Midlands rivals.

On-loan Shakhtar Donetsk winger Tete stole the show with a debut goal in first-half stoppage time to give City a 3-2 lead after a frenetic opening 45 minutes and Dennis Praet made the points safe in the closing stages.

Manager Brendan Rodgers said: “Tete was what I have been talking about for 18 months – a right-winger that can take the ball, pass the ball, look after it, make runs and work.

“What a debut for him. It was really good and because of that, you have balance, it allows Kelechi (Iheanacho) to play in the spaces in front of that.

“He knows football, he knows the type of game we were trying to play, his touch is immaculate. He has a good weight of pass but can run in behind. His finish was absolutely brilliant.”

The Brazilian is 21/4.

Spurs are 17/2 to pick up three points this way; the north Londoners have won the last four head-to-head encounters 6-2, 3-1, 3-2 and 4-2 and trailed in three of those games.

Last Leicester line-up: Ward, Kristiansen, Faes, Souttar, Castagne, Dewsbury-Hall, Tielemans, Barnes, Maddison, Tete, Iheanacho.

Leicester full-back Ricardo Pereira has returned to full training and is back in contention to play after he recovered from an Achilles injury which has kept him out since pre-season.

Midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was sidelined with a muscle issue last weekend and also returns to the fray, but skipper Jonny Evans continues to recover from a calf injury.

Tottenham Hotspur Odds

Antonio Conte was missing from the dug-out on Sunday after undergoing an operation to remove his gallbladder but his absence made no difference as Kane scored his 267th goal for the club to go one clear of previous record holder Jimmy Greaves.

The England captain’s 15th-minute winner also made him the quickest player to reach 200 Premier League goals, joining Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney with a double century since the top flight was rebranded.

Kane said: “I have spoken about doing it over the last couple of weeks and I wanted to do it at this special place and in front of these amazing fans.

“To do it in a big game, against a really good side, in an important moment in our season, I couldn’t ask for any more.

“We still have a lot to play for this year, keep the support going and let’s see where it takes us.”

Kane has scored five goals in seven appearances since the World Cup and trails Manchester City striker Erling Haaland by eight in the race for a fourth Golden Boot, which no longer looks insurmountable.

The England captain has an excellent record against Leicester, scoring in his last four meetings, and he can be backed at 19/20 to find the net at any time.

However, Kane has scored Tottenham’s opening goal against the Foxes in each of those matches and a fifth at Leicester vs Tottenham odds is our final prediction.

Last Spurs line-up: Lloris, Dier, Romero, Davies, Hojbjerg, Emerson, Perisic, Bentancur, Son, Kane, Kulusevski.

Tottenham will be without Hugo Lloris (knee), Cristian Romero (suspension) and Yves Bissouma (ankle). Spurs could also rest midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur with an eye on next week’s Champions League tie at AC Milan.
