Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Betting Tips: Form Guide

Leicester City Fail To Exceed Expectations

Performing about as expected, Leicester have found themselves around the middle section of the 2018/19 Premier League since their shocking and history defining tournament victory in the 2015/16 season. In other words, they’re doing an entirely respectable job, but nothing that is likely to concern the upper end of the Premier League.

This position was actually reinforced by their first game of the season, as they lost 2-1 to a less than perfect Manchester United. The same result came when they faced off against Liverpool and Everton, and they also lost in a 3-1 game against Arsenal. Results like this have cast them as clear underdogs in many Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur match previews, but it’s not all doom and gloom.

For starters, those losses didn’t come without a fight. They have also had success elsewhere, defeating Newcastle and Watford 2-0, Huddersfield 3-1 and Cardiff 1-0, but a pattern is emerging. Leicester manages just fine against much of the Premier League but when they get to the top level sides, they just cannot seem to get the job done. And have no doubt about it, Spurs are up there.

Even though you might conclude it will be a close game, based on this history, it’s little surprise that so many see their opponents as clear favourites when determining Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur betting tips.

Tottenham Hotspur Need Consistent Wins To Threaten The Top Spot

Spurs are in a rather strange position: sitting third in the Premier League is something they should be proud of. However, they’ve finished either third or second since the 2015/16 season, and this groundhog day scenario is starting to become a source of frustration for their fans and players alike.

Sadly, as it stands, it looks like they are destined to retain their position as Premier League bridesmaid, as they’re once again locked in the number three standing with defending champions Manchester City slowly disappearing off into the distance. Plus, with a recent 4-2 loss against Arsenal, that silver medal is also looking hard to reach. Another significant loss was, of course, their 1-0 fall to Manchester City themselves earlier in the season, although thanks to a pitch unfit for purpose, we’d hardly call it conclusive.

They have impressed elsewhere though. After all, you don’t end up in that kind of spot by accident. Most recently, they bested Southampton 3-1 in an impressive showing and before that, they ended Chelsea’s unbeaten run by the same result in an exhilarating display. Put simply, Tottenham Hotspur have been good – very good – but need to be even better if they want to be champions. Consistency is key to their chances, and that means they will not be taking Leicester lightly.

Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Preview: Recent Meetings

These two have had some absolute wars over the years, so there shouldn’t be too much issue finding recent meetings that are relevant to Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur betting tips for today. We’ll start off with that 5-4 contest earlier in the year, which was an absolute rollercoaster from start to finish. It really could have gone either way with just the slightest swing in momentum. It was a bonkers and utterly enthralling contest and we’ll be thrilled to see that level of excitement again here.

Going further back to 2017, Leicester overcame the odds in a fantastic 2-1 game. If these two matches show anything, it’s that Leicester are more than capable of bringing the fight to Tottenham. However, with a 6-1 loss earlier that year, and the years previous ever so slightly favouring Spurs, their rivals do have a historical advantage. It’s certainly not by much though.

Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur Prediction: Close Spurs Win

Unlike many predictions, the recent meetings between these two are actually one of the most significant factors. If you take that out of the equation, then the result seems fairly straightforward. Leicester have consistently struggled against top-tier teams this season, and Spurs are exactly that.

However, their head-to-head history tells a rather more complex story. The dynamic between these two seems to bring the fight out in Leicester, and on previous occasions against Tottenham, they’ve really looked ready to capture that 2015/16 magic. Stats don’t often take into account the chemistry between the two teams, and we think that is the case here.

Does that mean we think a Leicester win is likely? Not quite. We are expecting it to be achingly close, but we’re still going to give a tiny edge to the favourites. Therefore, our Leicester City vs Tottenham Hotspur prediction is a Spurs victory, but it may be a lot, lot closer than many bookmakers give them credit for.
