Tottenham v Leeds Odds, Tips, and Preview
Game time & date: 1500 BST, Saturday November 12
Location: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London
Last result between the two: Leeds 0-4 Tottenham, Premier League, February 2022
Tottenham will seek to arrest their recent slide when Leeds visit on Saturday, with the Yorkshire side heading to the capital on the back of dramatic twin wins over Liverpool and Bournemouth. Those victories have lifted Jesse Marsch’s men into mid-table in the Premier League while hopes of a Tottenham title tilt have faded as a result of a run of three defeats in their last four league games.
Spurs won both meetings between the sides in the Premier League last season, but is there value in backing the hosts in the Tottenham v Leeds betting odds for this game? Let’s take a look.
Injury crisis contributes to Spurs blip
Antonio Conte can point to a raft of injuries to explain Spurs losing form in recent weeks, but the high number of goals his team have conceded of late must be very concerning for the Italian boss.
Conte has seen his side let in two goals in each of their past four Premier League games, indicating that the tight defence he would like to impose is a long way from coming to fruition. Cristian Romero’s absence has been a particular blow for Spurs and their attacking options could also be limited on Saturday as both Richarlison and Heung-min Son are expected to miss out through injury.
That leaves even more pressure on the shoulders of star striker Harry Kane, who sometimes seems isolated in Conte’s team but has nevertheless managed to score 11 goals in the Premier League this term. That includes scoring the opening goal on eight occasions, with the 10/3 offered by 888Sport for Kane to score the first goal of the game therefore making sense as a strong selection for this game. Goals also seem very likely in this game, so the 8/13 with 888Sport for over 2.5 goals also appeals as well.
Last-gasp Leeds to strike late again?
Leeds were staring down the barrel of another relegation battle a couple of weeks ago, but the club’s fans are on a high after seeing them take maximum points from their past two Premier League games.
Crysencio Summerville has scored a late winner two weeks in a row for the Whites, with the Dutch winger finally making a strong impact in the Premier League since his 2020 signing from Feyenoord. Summerville has three goals from nine Premier League appearances this season and his late heroics mean his any time scorer odds of 6/1 with 888Sport and last scorer odds of 18/1 both stand out.
Leeds have conceded nine goals in their last four games, so there is work to do at the back for Marsch even if his team netting eight times in three matches suggests there will be lots of entertainment here. The 4/6 with 888Sport for both teams to score seems like a very solid selection for Saturday’s game.
Tottenham v Leeds Odds: Predictions
Momentum is with Leeds right now so it is tempting to side with them in the Tottenham v Leeds betting odds. With Spurs losing three of their last four games, they will be keen to right some wrongs going into the break for the World Cup but Leeds double chance at 13/10 with 888Sport is a good place to start.
Both teams have seen over 2.5 goals land three games in a row, so the same again at 8/13 looks likely. The 4/6 from 888Sport for both teams to score is another standout selection for this one too.
On the goalscorer markets, two players appeal. Kane has hit the opening goal eight times in the Premier League and is 10/3 with 888Sport to do it again. With Leeds star Summerville scoring late winners two games in a row it is very tempting to take the 18/1 with 888Sport for him to score the last goal here.
