At the time of writing Leicester sit 11th on the table and they are certain of Premier League football next season having looked in great danger of being relegated at one point. Their most recent match was a 2-1 away loss at Manchester City but prior to that they had successive victories over Watford at home and West Brom away. Their home form is what has seen them through to safety and they have won 5 on the trot in front of their own fans and all 5 of these victories have been by 2 goal margins.
Spurs are guaranteed to finish 2nd on the table and they have certainly finished the season strongly winning 10 of their last 11 matches with their most recent victory a 2-1 home win over Manchester United on Sunday. Their only loss in recent times was a 1-0 away defeat to West Ham but prior to that they had won 3 away games on the trot.
Tottenham Hotspur 8/10
Suggested bet: Handicap, Leicester (+1) at 19/20.
I am expecting Spurs to be a bit deflated now that the title race is officially over and I think Leicester can build on their strong recent home record and get something from this.
