Leicester v Tottenham Betting Preview
Venue: King Power Stadium
Leicester have impressed me under Claude Puel. The Foxes are organised in a 4-2-3-1 system, with Riyad Mahrez operating behind Jamie Vardy. Leicester now look to build from the back, with the centre-backs splitting. Three of four games under Puel have seen Under 2.5 goals. Leicester have only lost one of their last eight games in all competitions.
Spurs looked to have found their groove last month but over the last few weeks have halted. Pochettino’s side drew at home West Brom at the weekend and have lost to nil at both Old Trafford and The Emirates in their last two away games.
Ahead of Tuesday, I’m really drawn to the card markets. Only one of Leicester’s six games at the King Power have seen over four cards, and all four games since Puel took charge have seen two or less cards. Only two of Spurs’ six away games have had over four cards, and both of those were heated affairs at Arsenal and West Ham. Under 4 Asian Cards is 4/5 with Bet365 and sees our stake void if exactly 4 cards are awarded.
Sticking with cards, Leicester midfielder Wilfried Ndidi has attempted more tackles and committed more fouls than any other Leicester player this season. Spurs tend to play narrow, with two number 10’s meaning he’ll have a lot to deal with. To reinforce this, Dele Alli is fouled on average 3 times a game. Ndidi has picked up two yellow cards this season, both of which were at home to top six opposition in the form of Liverpool and Chelsea. The 5/1 around him to be booked looks worth chancing.
Leicester remain without long-term absentee Robert Huth.
Tottenham are still without Toby Alderweireld and Victor Wanyama. Harry Winks is a doubt with illness. Erik Lamela could return.
Potential Leicester Starting XI:
Schmeichel; Simpson, Morgan, Maguire, Fuchs; Ndidi, Iborra; Albrighton, Mahrez, Gray; Vardy
Potential Tottenham Starting XI:
Lloris; Sanchez, Dier, Vertonghen; Aurier, Sissoko, Dembele, Rose; Eriksen, Alli; Kane
