Tottenham Hotspur Betting Preview
Tottenham currently sits in 5th place in the standings having picked up 39 points. Last Sunday, Tottenham faced off against Manchester City and they were able to secure a 1-0 victory. Harry Kane scored in the 15th minute, and then the defense locked down on the way to the win. Cristiano Romero picked up a red card in the 87th minute and now he’s going to be suspended for this game. Tottenham is dealing with a problem in goal and for now, it looks like Fraser Forster will be the player that starts in goal. Pape Sarr is dealing with a hip injury but there is a chance that he could go in this game.
Leicester City Betting Preview
On the other side of this matchup is Leicester City who currently sits in 14th place in the standings having picked up 21 points. Leicester City has been quite inconsistent, but they are coming off a victory in the last game. The offense scored four goals against Aston Villa and that was enough to secure the victory. Ricardo Pereira and Jonny Evans are both finally getting healthy and both players could end up moving back into the starting lineup here. Wilfred Ndidi didn’t play against Aston Villa while dealing with a personal problem, but he could be back in this game.
Shane’s Free Pick
This game could be the highest scoring game of the weekend. Leicester City’s defense is leaky and even in the last game they gave up two goals in the victory. Tottenham Hotspur is going to score two or three goals here. I also do expect Leicester City is going to score at least a goal, and this game is going to go over the total. Back the over.
