Leicester vs Tottenham betting tips and predictions ahead of this Premier League clash, kicking off at 8pm on Thursday, 18th May 2017. Read our betting preview here.
Tottenham have wrapped up second place, and now they’ve said goodbye to White Hart Lane. Their home ground has already started to come down, but will their season fall apart as quickly? With little on the line for the visitors, they could find things tough at the King Power.
Tottenham’s farewell to White Hart Lane was a pretty big event, one which allowed them to saild past their title disappointment. A year ago, Spurs capitulated when Leicester won the title, and the Foxes will be hoping for similar on Thursday night. Spurs are guaranteed second, so what exactly do they have to focus on here?
Leicester should be confident of getting a result, given that Spurs are likely to rotate ahead of this clash. The Foxes know that a couple of wins this week can push them back in to the top nine, which would mean they’ve had a better title defence than Chelsea last term. That’s despite their early season struggles, as recent form has shot them up the table. Since Craig Shakespeare took over, Leicester have won six and drawn one of their seven at home. They’ve conceded once in their last five at home, and that was to Atletico Madrid. Given that form, we’re backing the Foxes on the double chance market at Evens with Coral in our first Leicester vs Tottenham prediction.
Leicester’s rise came thanks to five goals in eight games during April for Jamie Vardy. The Foxes’ forward has scored in three of his last four at the King Power, and we can see him hurting the Spurs defence here. We’re backing him to score anytime in our second Leicester vs Tottenham betting tip, which is priced at 2/1 with 888Sport.
Tottenham have a couple of selection worries, but Mauricio Pochettino is free to rotate his side ahead of this game. Leicester hope to have Wes Morgan and Robert Huth available for this clash.
Three of the last five meetings have seen these two share the points, while Tottenham have won just one of those clashes; an FA Cup replay against a weakened Leicester side last season.
Leicester’s great defensive record is why we see them securing a result in this one, and we’re backing them to keep a clean sheet on Thursday night too. We’ve made a 1-0 win for the hosts our final Leicester vs Tottenham prediction, which is priced at a huge 15/1 with Bet Victor.
