Tottenham are trading at a shade of odds-against to win at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening, with Unibet going 21/20 about a Spurs team who have won seven of their nine away encounters this season.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side have won away to Newcastle, Manchester United, Brighton, Huddersfield, West Ham, Wolves and Palace this term, although they didn’t always look convincing in these clashes and were left hanging on a great deal of the time.
Perhaps their luck finally ran out in the north London derby when they came up against rivals who were determined to blow them away and the 4-2 defeat was possibly more flattering to Tottenham than to Arsenal. It was certainly a result that knocked the former for six.
This match doesn’t look a formality for Spurs who will be up against a team who have had to deal with the death of the Leicester owner in recent weeks although they were too strong for Watford in their last home match and it’s been six matches since they experienced a defeat.
Leicester Look to Rattle Spurs
The Foxes are a 14/5 chance with bet365 to overcome Tottenham and they will certainly offer a threat, with Jamie Vardy and James Maddison looking sharp for City and Claude Puel will have watched that north London derby with interest.
It was clear that Spurs were easily rattled when a team came pouring forward against them, with Leicester capable of managing at least a draw from this encounter, with the Midlands side wanting to continue accruing points with the aim of landing a top six finish this term.
Vardy has had a fractious relationship with Puel this season but the Frenchman clearly appears to believe in the former England front man, with Leicester capable of really testing a Spurs side who have a big Champions League game at Barcelona on the horizon.
Back a Foxes Win and BTTS
You can get a lumpy 11/2 with BetVictor that the Foxes win the game and both teams find the net, with Spurs clearly boasting lots of players with a strong goal threat and that includes Christian Eriksen who has set piece prowess among other things.
The Dane is 11/1 to open the scoring and will look to occupy the space behind the front-running Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min, with Over 3.5 Goals also not a bad shout at 2/1 with BetVictor.
If you think that Leicester can avoid defeat in this clash but fancy some insurance regarding the home side, then BetVictor go 8/9 about them with a +0.5 start on the Asian Handicap. It means you can win if the game ends in a draw or a City win.
Similarly, Leicester 0 on the Asian Handicap at 28/17 with Unibet means you can triumph if the Midlands side wins and get your money back if the match ends all square.
All odds were correct when posted.
