Leicester and Tottenham must both pick themselves up from damaging midweek defeats as they bid for Champions League and Europa League qualification.
These teams are quite evenly matched in terms of overall quality in our book but a draw would almost certainly not suit either side at this stage.
That makes 7/5 for any team to win by exactly one goal a good option for our first Leicester vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester came down from an emotional first FA Cup triumph over Chelsea to put in a fairly flat display when beaten 2-1 by the same opponents at Stamford Bridge.
Antonio Rudiger’s scrambled opener and a Jorginho penalty gave the Foxes a mountain to climb and they could only reply with a Kelechi Iheanacho consolation.
Ayoze Perez should have snatched a last-gasp draw but Brendan Rodgers admitted: “We knew it would be tough off the back of the weekend.
“We knew we’d have to weather the storm. We could have been better with the ball and played forward a little bit more. We’re disappointed with the goals we conceded.
“Our idea was to make sure we stayed in the game. But we gave away a soft corner and the second one looks very, very harsh for the penalty.”
That result left the Foxes in fifth place, one point behind Chelsea and level with Liverpool, but four down on goal difference.
City had previously been clinical when it comes to scoring late on, netting 23 times in the final quarter of an hour of matches, four more than the next best tally.
Looking at the Leicester vs Tottenham odds, we’re taking 12/5 they bag the most goals between 75:01 minutes and full-time, with Spurs only having seven strikes in that period.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Fofana, Soyuncu, Castagne, Thomas, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Ndidi, Vardy, Perez.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham’s bid to earn a Europa League slot suffered a frustrating setback when they were edged out 2-1 by Aston Villa on home turf.
Steven Bergwijn’s first goal of the season put Spurs ahead early on but a spectacular Sergio Reguilon own goal and Ollie Watkins’ strike turned things around.
Interim manager Ryan Mason insisted speculation over Harry Kane’s future did not affect the London club.
“We are professionals, we are paid to do a job,” he stated. “The players were fully focused on the match. It is really disappointing we have lost the game.
“The hope and expectation was to win, we haven’t done that. The players are disappointed, the fans are and I am sure those people at home are as well.”
Kane is reported to have told Spurs he wants to be sold this summer due to a growing frustration at having to watch other English clubs shine in Europe.
The England captain will still be inspired by the prospect of Golden Boot glory here, though, so 4/1 he breaks the deadlock is added to our Leicester vs Tottenham betting tips.
Kane also has a great record in this fixture, scoring 10 times in his last six starts versus the Foxes.
Last Spurs line-up: Lloris, Reguilon, Alderweireld, Tanganga, Hojbjerg, Winks, Dier, Alli, Son, Kane, Bergwijn.
