Home I Latest News I Tottenham vs Leicester City
What a big game we have in prospect for this Saturday! Tottenham vs Leicester City is our Match of the Week.
The English champion travels to White Hart Lane to face Tottenham and even though Arsenal secured 2nd place in the last round, Tottenham and Leicester featured an exciting fight for the Premier League title last season.
With 13 goals conceded in their four games on the road, Leicester is still looking for a positive result outside King Power Stadium. Besides defeats against big teams, the Foxes also suffered an embarrassing loss on Hull City’s turf.
One of the main problems for Claudio Ranieri’s team is their involvement in the UEFA Champions League. The team is loving the experience of playing in the biggest European competition. After winning all their three games so far, Leicester is very close to ensuring a place in the next stage.
On the other side, Tottenham lost their midweek game against Liverpool for the League Cup. Pochettino spared some of their key players on that game. Therefore, stamina won’t be a problem this Saturday against Leicester.
The Foxes surprised Tottenham last year at White Hart Lane with a 1-0 victory. However, it won’t be easy for Leicester to repeat that result when looking to their current form. In contrast, the Spurs featured an extraordinary win two weeks ago against Manchester City.
The bookmakers agree with us and consider Tottenham the favourite to win the 3 points @1.65 on Pinnacle. However, the price seems too low on the Spurs for us to get involved. Despite Tottenham’s quality and Leicester’s poor results on the road, the Foxes didn’t play any midweek game like their opponents.
This should be a high scoring affair and for that reason, we’ll turn our focus to the goals market.
The Over 2.5 goals presents good value, however, Bwin offers an even better line. Both Teams to Score is available @1.83, a very generous price that clearly deserves a bet.
Both teams should start the game at a high pace, which gives us some value to play the Half-Time Overs. Betsafe offers a very interesting line, Over 1.5 HT @2.60.
However, we’ve decided to wait for an in-play opportunity to grab extra value after the first couple of minutes.
Due to the crucial game against Copenhagen in just a few days, Ranieri might present some unexpected changes on the team.
For this reason, we’ve decided to avoid the anytime goal scorers market. With that said, we’ll stick to the Both Teams to Score and the Half-Time Over live as the best bets for this game.
