Bet: Both Teams To Score: No

On Saturday we are going to entertain the clash between last year main challengers for Premier League crown. Tottenham affairs are getting worse and worse, the team after three draws in a raw in all tournaments on Wednesday lost to Liverpool 1-2 eliminating from EFL Cup. It wasn’t predicted by sports betting experts but Mauricio Pochettino's side didn’t taste victory since the start of the month. Although as bets say it’s not very crucial because Spurs currently at fifth place in standings only one point from the top.

At the same time Leicester City after frustrating results in early autumn managed to gain two wins in a row, according to betting. Firstly Foxes defeated F.C. København 1-0 on King Power Stadium in Champions League and then Crystal Palace in Premier League. That allowed Claudio Ranieri's men to retain its positions in the middle of the standings. So choosing bets you should remember that City is much better in the CL having lost all four of their domestic away games this season.

It is obvious and bets confirm that Tottenham require a positive result against the Foxes to avoid slipping off the pace in the Premier League title race. Moreover Spurs’ lineup was given a rest by Pochettino despite EFL Cup match on Tuesday. Argentinian manager used reserved players against Liverpool. The main his problem is defense. May be Toby Alderweireld which suffered a knee injury against West Brom isn’t fit for the game and Pochettino will use Eric Dier again alongside Jan Vertonghen. At the same time main striker Harry Kane is going to return this weekend although Moussa Sissoko is suspended by FA. As to Ranieri, Italian is reasonably betting on European campaign, so to secure a place in the Champions League knockout stages he could opt to rest players once again with a trip to Copenhagen on Wednesday.

I don’t think that it is a surprise the bookmakers name home side as a favorite: Tottenham - 1.67; Draw - 3.80; Leicester City - 5.00. This season Foxes couldn’t take a single win in matches against top-clubs, they were beaten by Man United, Chelsea and Liverpool gaining a draw only against Arsenal. But Spurs have problems with the attack scoring only two goals in four last matches. So many goals shouldn’t be expected as bet “Total Match Goals Under 2.5” (2.00) may go through. Alternatively “Both Teams To Score: No” (2.00) can be chosen.
