After missing their last Premier League game due to a Covid outbreak, Spurs are back in action this Thursday with an away clash against in-form Leicester City.

The Foxes will be full of confidence after thumping Newcastle 4-0 last Sunday and as a result come into this game with 22 points, just 3 off Spurs.

The match betting suggests a tight game with Leicester the favourites at 2.10, the Draw 3.75 and Spurs on offer at 3.25.

Last season, this repeat fixture ended in a 2-4 away win for Spurs though, plus the Londoners are unbeaten in 6 of their last 8 away games over Leicester City.

You can back Spurs or the Draw in the ‘double chance’ market at 1.66 if you think they will avoid defeat here.

It’s normally a match-up that produces goals too. 7 of the last 9 head-to-heads have gone OVER 2.5 GOALS – this is on offer at 1.72, while 18 of the last 24 (75%) clashes have also seen 3+ goals scored.

Another option on the scoring front is to side with ‘both teams to score’ at 1.66 – this has paid out in 18 of the last 23 head-to-heads.

Tottenham’s Harry Kane has netted a massive 11 goals in the last 9 previous games between the sides too – he’s at 5.00 (1st) or 2.20 (anytime), while Jamie Vardy, for Leicester, also has a top scoring record when facing Spurs – he’s scored 7 goals in the last 8. Vardy can be backed at 5.50 (1st) or 2.30 (anytime), but do check the team news on Vardy as he didn’t feature in their last game at Newcastle.
