Leicester City vs Tottenham Hottespur
A meeting between teams whose ranks have been riddled with quarantine measures following positive tests. The opponents won’t be playing their strongest squads, but despite that the billboard looks appealing. All the more so because there is a grounding in principle here. In the decisive fixture of the season, Leicester hosted Tottenham and lost to the Londoners 2-4. That result enabled Spurs to qualify for the Conference League, but kept the Foxes out of the UEFA Champions League.
Leicester want to avenge that result and take revenge – and as big as possible. However, we would prefer not to place any bets on the outcome of the game – both teams have enough problems, and how they will deal with them in a head-to-head encounter remains a question. “The Foxes were not hampered by them in the last round, when they defeated Newcastle. However, Brendan Rodgers’ side lost to Napoli in the Europa League last week, also with a weakened squad. Spurs have plenty of problems, but here Conte can get his way through tactical decisions.
Either way, this should be a fun game with plenty of chances. The Foxes, as the home team, will run forward, put a lot of pressure on the opposing defence and, in addition, open up some empty space in their defence. In addition, the absence of key players should increase the number of errors. In seven of the last ten head-to-head encounters between the two sides, goals have been exchanged, and in seven of the previous nine meetings between the opponents, at least three goals have been scored.
Based on all of the above, we propose to consider one of two betting options – total more (2.5) at odds of 1.77 or “both to score: yes” for 1.67.
Our pick: Total more (2.5) at odds of 1.77
