The title derby of last season, Tottenham vs. Leicester City, sees another episode at White Hart Lane on Saturday. This time around, Leicester are an anonymous, mid-table team, but this doesn’t mean they are easy to beat.
But if there’s a team which is in form, especially at home, it’s the Spurs – and they don’t even look close to the top of their game yet!
Tottenham vs Leicester City – 29/10/2016
Betting Odds: Tottenham 1.61 or 8/13 Draw 4.20 or 16/5 Leicester 6.00 or 5/1
What we’ve said might seem illogical, but Tottenham isn’t playing impressively in offense – the compartment where they’ve shined last season.
They lack the player specialized in scoring goals since Harry Kane is far away from his top form. 13 goals in 9 games are little for a team challenging for the title, but on the other hand, they’ve only conceded 4 times in these 9 games – an awesome defensive record.
Sitting just 1 point behind the league leaders, the Spurs know they must push a win in this game. A short, 1-0 win is just enough to get them back to their winning ways and push them closer to 1st place.
Meanwhile, Leicester seems like the odd element in the league so far. It seems like everyone has woken up around them and starting playing football, while they’re still relying on Mahrez or Vardy to produce something unique.
These two are still quality players, but can’t win everything on their own, and we’re sure they won’t even come close to challenging for the title this year. Furthermore, their away form is absolutely awful – 0 points this season.
Tottenham vs Leicester City Betting Tips
That being said, we’re expecting a Tottenham home win. If you want larger odds, Tottenham and under 3,5 or 2,5 goals is the best we can find, since we’re expecting something along the lines of 1-0 or 2-0.
Another alternative bet is that Leicester won’t score since they’ve only managed 3 goals away from home this season. Mahrez comes up against Rose, a great defender ,meaning he will have a horrible game – and he seems like the only one capable of producing something unique. Good luck!
