Leeds United v Tottenham Hotspur Premier League Betting Tips 26/02/2022
Leeds are struggling in their second season back in the Premier League and points have been hard to come by for the Yorkshire club. They sit 15th in the Premier League and Marcelo Bielsa’s side will have a close eye on the chasing pack if they can’t start gaining points. Fresh off the back of a resounding win at the Etihad last time out, Spurs will fancy their chances at Elland Road. The Whites will need to be ready for Antonio Conte’s side. This fixture kicks off at 12:30 p.m and it will be broadcast on BT Sport.
Leeds were thrashed 6-0 at Liverpool on Wednesday, leaving the Yorkshire side winless in their last five Premier League matches. Poor form leaves the Whites just three points above Burnley in 18th place. Despite beating Man City 3-2 at the Etihad last weekend, Spurs lost 1-0 at Burnley in mid-week. It was Spurs’ fourth loss in five league matches.
For the team news, Leeds’ Robin Kock is unlikely to feature. Key players Liam Cooper (thigh), Kalvin Phillips (thigh), Patrick Bamford (ankle), Sam Greenwood (knee) and Leo Fuhr Hjelde (knee) also remain sidelined. Spurs are likely to be without Sergio Reguilon (coronavirus) Japhet Tanganga (knee) and Oliver Skipp (groin).
Matchwinner Betting Odds
As Leeds and Spurs are out of form in the Premier League, there are some interesting odds in the match winner market. Firstly, Tottenham are considered the favourites to nick an away win. Although their overall league form is poor, Spurs have picked up points away. The North Londoners have won three of their last five on the road and they have lost twice in their last seven. 10Bet have the best value for a Spurs win at evens. A Leeds victory seems more unlikely, given they have lost their last three on the spin, including two at Elland Road. However, the Whites have beaten Spurs in their last two meetings in Yorkshire, so there could be a good outside option for Betfred’s 3/1 odds for a home win. But, both sides will be desperate to stop the rot and a draw is our pick for this fixture. There is no dominant team in the head to heads, with Spurs winning three, Leeds two and one draw in the last six. As a result, backing a draw at 3/1, provided by Betfred, is the best shout.
BTTS Betting – Yes
Leeds and Tottenham have been conceding goals for fun in recent matches and clean sheets have been a premium in their recent fixtures. As a result, the BTTS market carries some decent value for goals at Elland Road. Firstly, Leeds have not had a clean sheet for 12 consecutive matches in all competitions and they have shipped a whopping 16 in their last four matches. Spurs haven’t fared much better at the back. Conte’s side has not kept a clean sheet in ten and they have shipped two or more goals in three of their last four. Due to the defensive frailties of both sides, we’re tipping BTTS Yes this weekend, with William Hill offering the best odds at 8/13.
Anytime Goalscorer Bets
As goals could be on the cards in Yorkshire, additional value can be found by backing an anytime goalscorer for Leeds vs Tottenham. The goals for Spurs striker Harry Kane and Son Heung-Min have been irregular this season. However, the pair always carry an attacking threat. Kane was back to his best against City, with two goals and there is some value in backing the England striker at 30/29, provided by VBet. Alternatively, Son has scored two in his last three against Leeds and Bet365 will offer 6/4 odds for a Son anytime goal. Our pick is to back Leeds’ talisman Raphinha. The Brazilian forward is the Whites’ top scorer this season with nine goals. But the forward has been more lethal at Elland Road, netting six of his goals at home, including against Man United last time out. At 37/13, there is good value on another Raphinha strike at home this weekend.
Leeds are plummeting down the league and could find themselves closer to the relegation zone with each passing match. The Whites will need to be wary of Tottenham after their confidence-boosting win at the Etihad. But, Bielsa’s side always has the potential to pull off an upset.
