Leicester City bid to extend their longest unbeaten run in the Premier League since they won the thing in 2015/16 against a Tottenham side that developed the happy knack of winning even when not at their fluent best of late.
Leicester vs Tottenham: odds and predictions
The Foxes are 29/10 outsiders in the match betting, as befits a side that’ve won only three of their seven Premier League home games this season, while a draw that would be Spurs’ first in 20 in the division is priced up at odds of 13/5.
Mauricio Pochettino’s men have accrued more points on the road this term than any other side and are 19/20 for victory at the King Power, where they haven’t failed to score since the hosts’ return to the top flight in 2014.
After the Lilywhites’ superior decisiveness in front of goal allowed them to best a Southampton side that missed some glorious chances at Wembley in midweek, our Leicester vs Tottenham predictions and betting tips foresee a similar scenario unfolding here.
Leicester vs Tottenham head-to-head (most recent first): Tottenham 5-4 Leicester, Leicester 2-1 Tottenham, Leicester 1-6 Tottenham, Tottenham 1-1 Leicester, Leicester 0-2 Tottenham, Tottenham 0-1 Leicester.
Leicester vs Tottenham predictions: correct score, best bet, scorer tips
Correct score prediction: Leicester 1-2 Tottenham, odds trading @ 7/1
Yet to be denied a goal in 12 road games across all competitions this season, the Lilywhites have notched twice or more in six of their last eight, including three each at Wolves and West Ham.
Both sides have found the net in nine of their 11 meetings with the Foxes and our Leicester vs Tottenham predictions see that trend continuing.
However, Claude Puel’s side have only struck more than once in one of their last nine matches and with Jamie Vardy’s fitness far from assured it seems unlikely they can be expected bag more.
Enhanced Odds about Kane bagging in a Spurs victory are hard to turn down as the best bet among our Leicester vs Tottenham predictions, with the boy Kane facing opponents that’ve obliged him to the tune of 13 goals in his 11 past meetings with them.
He’s also netted in four of his last five outings for club and country and should start despite the Lilywhites’ Champions League trip to Barcelona the following Tuesday, having done so in the league games preceding their last two European outings.
Goalscorer betting predictions: Eric Dier our pick to score anytime @ 14/1
No team in the Premier League this season has scored more goals from set pieces than Tottenham and three of the six strikes the Foxes have shipped on home turf this term came from dead balls.
Our second scorer-themed tip is the man who nodded in a Christian Eriksen free-kick against Arsenal two games back for his second goal of the campaign.
