Tottenham Hotspur Vs Leicester City Betting Tips
Leicester City was hard-pressed when Brighton took away the match 5-2 after conceding a goal in the game’s early minutes. Since then, Foxes have yet to taste victory. On top of that, Spurs currently are enjoying an unbeaten home record which will further add pressure to the already struggling side of Brendan Rodgers. Furthermore, they have lost five of the six games in the Premier League this season, that’s why Spurs are heavily favored to win the coming engagement.
The headache is that Foxes are conceding goals at an alarming rate, 2.67 per match to be exact – Conte’s strikers will be gunning to decimate whatever shaky defense Foxes might put up in their way. Moreover, two recent engagements between Tottenham and Leicester City went the Spurs’ way – Spurs claimed a 3-2 away win and a 3-1 home win against Leicester City in their last two clashes.
Brendan Rodgers’ men have to arrange a tough defense not to give way to Spurs’ striker. Besides, they have to do well in the second half because 42% of the time, Tottenham scores in 61 to 70 minutes. Moreover, they have to improve their game in the first half too. The winning probability of Leicester City in the first half is a lowly 27%, while Tottenham wins the first half 38% of the time.
The wretched form of Foxes in the current season has put them at the bottom of the tally, and they need to work up a miracle if they hope to improve their standing.

Tottenham will host Leicester City on their home ground on Saturday, September 17, 2022, for the 8th day of the English premier league. Tottenham looks marvelous and will want to continue their unbeaten record this season when they face Leicester City in their next engagement.
Since the appointment of Antonio Conte, Spurs have taken an upward trajectory, and with the kind of form they are currently in, they only seem to go further up in the coming season. They have four wins to their name in six league games and currently boast third place in the league’s table.

That said, Sporting Lisbon gave Spurs a hard jostling when they took down Conte’s side 2-0 in the Champions League. The coach will undoubtedly want his squad to pick up the winning momentum when they face Leicester City.
On the other hand, Brendan Rodgers’s side is struggling this season, and the task ahead will undoubtedly require all their strength if they wish to stop Tottenham on its track.
