Pochettino’s men have been fast out of the blocks this season and can establish an early advantage against the Foxes at the King Power Stadium
Saturday’s frantic Premier League schedule comes to an end at the King Power Stadium.
The visitors are yet to draw a Premier League game this season but it’s 5/2 (3.50) that this one ends all square.
The best angle to take here is backing Tottenham to be ahead by half time. At 31/20 (2.65) this allows punters to take advantage of Leicester’s trend of slow starts under Claude Puel as well as how effective Spurs have been in the opening 45 minutes of matches.
Leicester on the other hand, have failed to score in the first 45 minutes in five of their last six top-flight games. During that run they’ve been behind at half time against Fulham, Brighton and West Ham albeit they took at least a share of the spoils on each occasion.
While the Foxes are on a six-game unbeaten run in the league, the quality of opposition faced during that spell has been lower than Puel’s side will encounter on Saturday evening. Furthermore, they’ve not fared well against elite teams so far this campaign.
In fact, Leicester have played five games against teams who currently sit above them, losing on each occasion. Instead of backing Spurs to win at Evens (2.0) though, siding with the visitors to be ahead at half time looks a better play at 31/20 (2.65) with 888Sport.
