Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur face off on Wednesday in an English Premier League showdown at King Power Stadium. When these two teams faced off in May of 2021 it was Tottenham that won 4-2. 

Tottenham comes into this game sitting in 6th place in the standings having picked up 33 points. Tottenham’s last game was in the EFL Cup against Chelsea, and the offense couldn’t find the back of the net and that led to the defeat. The last game in the EPL came against Watford on January 1st and Tottenham won that game 1-0. Tottenham has scored 23 goals total while their defense has given up 20 goals. Son Heung-Min has been the top player for Tottenham scoring eight goals and adding three assists. 

On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City who sits in 10th place in the standings having picked up 25 points. Leicester City has won each of their last two games but they have won only two games since December 28th. In the last game against Watford, Leicester City’s offense scored four goals and that was enough to advance in the FA Cup. Leicester City has scored 31 goals while their defense has scored 33 goals total. Jamie Vardy has been the top player scoring nine goals and adding an assist. Even though he has been strong, he is out for this game and that is a big loss for the offense. James Maddison and Youri Tielmans have both also scored five goals. 

Leicester City’s defense is awful but their offense has been good, and I expect there will be plenty of points scored by both teams. Look for a 2-2 or 3-2 type of game, and although there isn’t a strong play on the side, this game is going to go over the total. Back the over to cash.
