Match Betting (1x2)

Leicester City are being tipped by many to challenge for a top four spot in the Premier League this season and it’s clear that they can benefit from not having the distraction of European football.

Brendan Rodgers will know all about the Foxes winning the title in 2016 and will secretly hope that the Midlands outfit can get among the leading teams in the table this season, although qualifying for the Champions League would be a fantastic achievement.

Games like the one against Spurs on Saturday will be a good indicator of where Leicester sit at the moment and they’re trading at 11/5 with William Hill to beat a team who will have to quickly recover after a Champions League engagement with Olympiakos.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side have gone to the Etihad Stadium and the Emirates Stadium and come away with a 2-2 draw on each occasion, with the visitors currently favourites at 13/10 with BetVictor to leave the King Power Stadium with a maximum haul.

William Hill offer 5/2 that this match ends all square and that surely has to be great value compared to the away win price, with Leicester capable of giving any team a difficult game.

It should be noted that City are unbeaten from their opening four matches and will be a good deal fresher for this encounter than a side whose manager is bemoaning the lack of summer acquisitions once again.

First Goalscorer

Let’s face it, it would be a surprise if this clash ends with no goals and there’s sure to be plenty of interest in the First Goalscorer betting market. The first port of call is a pair of English strikers. One is currently captain of the national team while the other recently called time on his participation with the Three Lions.

Harry Kane is always among the favourites on any 1G list and you can get 9/2 with Paddy Power that the Tottenham skipper breaks the deadlock in this encounter, with the prolific forward having recently notched at Arsenal.

Kane will be on spot kick duties and the same applies to Jamie Vardy who has been looking sharp as a tack for Leicester City since the beginning of the campaign. The striker scored at Sheffield United much to the annoyance of the home supporters before pilfering a brace against Bournemouth.

Vardy is a 5/1 shot with Ladbrokes to score the opening goal of the game here, while James Maddison is another viable 1G proposition for the Foxes and Paddy Power offer 8/1 about the England hopeful finding the breakthrough.

Spurs are favourites for the encounter and it will be interesting to see how they line up for this clash, with Lucas Moura, Son Heung-Min and Dele Alli all potential starters, although Christian Eriksen is a 10/1 poke with Coral and could represent best value of all.

Both Teams to Score

When putting together a Both Teams to Score accumulator, many customers will include this game as a “Yes” selection, with Leicester and Tottenham both looking to get on the front foot straight from kick-off.

The Foxes drew a blank against Wolves in their opening game before finding the net against Chelsea, Sheffield United and Bournemouth. Indeed, it appears as though they have become more prolific as the season has progressed.

Spurs slammed home three late goals against Aston Villa before pilfering a brace away to Arsenal and Manchester City, so it’s little surprise that the bookies have odds-on that both teams indeed score in this clash.

Unibet go 4/6 about BTTS, although those punters who think the opposite might happen can back 13/10 that at least one side fails to find the net. It’s plausible that this could happen, with Spurs happy enough to try and cage the Leicester attack and hit them on the break.

Over / Under Goals

We’ve had an increasing number of goals in the first four Leicester matches of the season. Things started slowly with a goalless draw against Wolves before a 1-1 draw at Chelsea. Then came a 2-1 win at Sheffield United before a 3-1 victory against Bournemouth.

Therefore, if you think the goals will continue to flow in this game, then Over 3.5 Goals can be backed at 47/20 with Unibet. It looks like an attractive bet considering that Leicester certainly won’t be playing for a point and they’re up against a side whose Champions League spot they will want to steal.

For those looking to play this market a little more cautiously, you can get 17/20 with Paddy Power about Over 2.5 Goals and that would cover a 2-1 win to either side.

It would also cover the 2-2 draw and it’s worth noting that this has been the outcome when Spurs have travelled to Manchester City and Arsenal this season.

However, those erring towards a lower-scoring encounter between these sides can get evens with BetVictor that there are Under 2.5 Goals and perhaps this is the way to go instead.

Correct Score

BetVictor have an intriguing 11/1 that Leicester win this game by a 2-1 scoreline and we really think there could be something in the fact that they will be fresher than opponents who will have had a four-hour journey back from Greece in the middle of the week.

Spurs will have been handed a real test by Olympiakos although they are available at 9/1 to enjoy a 2-1 victory of their own, while those wanting a bit more juice in the price can get odds of 18/1 that there’s a 3-1 victory recorded instead.

A 1-1 draw is trading as the marginal favourite on this market at 5/1, while those who are expecting Spurs to enjoy another 2-2 draw can back this outcome at 14/1.
