Spurs vs Leeds Prediction

Tottenham have won two of their last seven matches following a midweek defeat to Nottingham Forest in the League Cup. Antonio Conte’s team are still a sports betting favourite over a resurgent Leeds team this weekend, however. 

Leeds are suddenly brimming with confidence. Jesse Marsch’s future was up in the air a matter of days ago, but Leeds have recorded stunning victories against Liverpool and Bournemouth, the second of which was a remarkable comeback. Their style will not change drastically for this trip to north London – Marsch sets his team up to attack in numbers and move the ball quickly, which could expose the home defence. 

By underlying metrics, Tottenham are a top six team and little more. Injuries have dampened their attack around Harry Kane, who has been in superb form, while the defence has shown a lot of vulnerability of late. Three losses in four league matches has whipped up further questions about Conte’s approach. 

Crysencio Summerville is the player to watch for Leeds after two magical moments in the last two weekends. Summerville has the pace to be a problem for Tottenham, and bettors are bound to be tempted by the 21-year-old at 7/2 to score anytime given his exceptional form. 

Leeds have experienced some long-awaited regression in astonishing fashion of late. Tottenham are a team low on confidence, and a few players could have their eye on the World Cup, which kicks off in just a few days. 

Spurs have been better at home than on the road. Kane has been prolific in the first half of the season. Still, Leeds at 5/4 to win or draw is brilliant value given their confidence here.

Tottenham Outright Betting This Season

888Sport betting markets tab Tottenham as the third-best Premier League team heading into the new season, yet there’s a chasm between the Lilywhites and the top two.

Spurs are way out at 14/1 to win their first Premier League title even after a summer of considerable investment in the first team squad, including Yves Bissouma, Richarlison and Ivan Perisic.

Spurs are 4/7 to finish in the top four as they aim to build on a strong second half of 2021-22 under Antonio Conte.

Harry Kane and Heung-min Son are two of the preseason favourites for PFA Player of the Year at 11/1 and 16/1 respectively, and Kane is in at 6/1 to win the Golden Boot after Son took the honour last term.

Elsewhere, Spurs are 8/1 to win the FA Cup and the same price for the EFL Cup. Conte is unlikely to prioritise these competitions, but they have the necessary squad depth to be competitive even if they rotate, which wasn’t the case in prior seasons.

The Champions League is where a lot of attention will be on Spurs and Conte. The Italian has traditionally struggled in the competition – how will he fare in 2022-23? Is this the year Conte takes his team a long way into the knockouts?
