Tottenham are fancied to dent Leicester’s Champions League hopes and boost their own chances of qualifying for next season’s Europa League.
The Foxes have failed to win any of their last seven Premier League away games, while Spurs are seeking a fourth straight home victory.
Jose Mourinho’s side get the nod to prevail again here at 27/20 for our initial Tottenham vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham followed up a north London derby win over Arsenal by prevailing 3-1 at Newcastle on Wednesday night.
Matt Ritchie cancelled out Son Heung-min’s opener to bring the Magpies back level, but Harry Kane bagged a brace to push Spurs up to seventh in the table.
Kane reached 200 career club goals with that double and told Spurs TV: “It’s a nice milestone to hit, but as always when I’m told about these milestones, it’s always on to the next 100 or 200!”
He added: “It’s a massive win. It was a difficult game away from home, they’re not an easy team to play against.
“We probably didn’t have our A-game, but we managed to find a way and we were obviously delighted to come away with the three points.
“I would imagine two more wins and we should be in the Europa League places, but we can only take care of ourselves and wait to see what happens.”
Steven Bergwijn was only used as a second-half substitute at St James’ Park but may get more game time if Mourinho opts to freshen up his side.
The flying Dutchman has scored three of Spurs’ last six goals against clubs above them in the table and appeals at 13/5 to net at any time here in the Tottenham vs Leicester odds.
Last Spurs line-up: Lloris, Alderweireld, Sanchez, Aurier, Davies, Winks, Sissoko, Lo Celso, Moura, Son, Kane.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester bounced back from a damaging 4-1 defeat at Bournemouth by beating Sheffield United 2-0 at King Power Stadium.
Ayoze Perez and Demarai Gray were on target and the Foxes should have had a few more, with the pace of Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes troubling the Blades.
Brendan Rodgers said: “We have lacked that bit of consistency but there’s only one consistent team in the league and that’s Liverpool.
“For the boys to be challenging for a Champions League place with a couple of games to go, I just tip my hat to them. It’s an amazing achievement.”
That was a welcome boost for City, but it has to be noted that their opponents were simply not at the races.
Leicester will always have their moments up front, with the tireless Vardy creating chances, as well as leading the Golden Boot race on 23 league goals.
However, this is a tough test for a team which has faltered on the road during the second half of the season, especially with James Maddison and Ben Chilwell injured, plus Caglar Soyuncu suspended.
Let’s add 16/5 for Spurs to win and both teams to score to our Tottenham vs Leicester betting tips.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Justin, Morgan, Evans, Bennett, Thomas, Tielemans, Barnes, Ndidi, Vardy, Perez.
